The balance that month was $14,200.36. We charged $2,354.62 and made a payment for $1,200. No wonder we are still in debt. I can’t believe we charged that much money in a single month. The minimum payment due that month was $297.05. Look like I was so good at creating debt, they had a special promotion just for me that month; they lowered my minimum payment to $10:
"Because of the careful way that you manage your account the minimum payment due on this statement has been reduced to$10.00. If you prefer to pay your minimum regular amount due, it is $297.05. Please remember finance charges will accrue as usual. Thank you."
As I look at some of the charges I realize I have nothing to show for $2354 dollars. Most of it was gas and groceries, bar tabs, one night hotel stay at the beach, pet expenses, Target and Wal Mart. Again, I can’t seem to find anything around the house that would cost $2354.
The goal is to continue to pay this off and CLOSE this account. I don’t ever want to be associated with this card again. Hopefully this blog will always remind how stupid and immature I once was. This is sad.
I confess, I’ve done stupid…HS
