Difference between her debt and mine? About $1000.
Difference between her savings and mine? $320
I was pretty nervous to tell her cause we are
What she told me about her finances surprised me. I know I shouldn't have been surprised that the outside doesn't always match the inside. I mean Heelllooo, that is US!! K also said that she had recently read that 35k to 40 k of personal debt was around average. Whaaaattt??? I started wondering if everyone I know (other than my parents) was living with large personal debt. Probably?!?!?
I read on a personal finance blog ( I had been reading them for inspiration, yes maybe a little obsessively but what's a spender to do?) that credit cards represent money spent on shit we no longer even remember. True. We have had a credit card debt for nearly ten years, I have no idea what we bought and am confident if I could work it out we wouldn't have it anymore. What a waste.
Cheerful aren't I? On a happier note we are listing stuff this weekend to sell. All the money is going to the smaller cc as this one drives D cray cray. I'll let you know if we sell anything.
