Part of our FPU class (I know, I know, you are sick of reading about it. I promise, I’m nearly done posting about all of this stuff) is to cut up credit cards.  I didn’t really have many cards, a Target card and an closed Victoria Secrets card. I kept the Victoria Secrets card because it was pretty, and it had a large portion of my name spread across it. I was supposed to cut them up a few weeks ago but never got around to it.

It was a little difficult, which was surprising. But I did it:


Have you ever seen the movie ‘Maxed Out’? Here is a trailer. After I watched it I vowed to never use a credit card again. Ever.

    Congrats!!! This is such a HUGE step – I know for me it was difficult when I got the scissors, but going through FPU, listening to Dave Ramsey, and then also seeing Maxed Out convinced me that cold-turkey, total destruction of my credit cards was the only option. Way to go!!
