T-minus 5 days, no I-phone for me

Now, I am waiting patiently for the arrival of 'Maxed-out', the documentary about America's debt problem.


From all of the clips...


...it appears I must own this movie, not so much because it will teach me something I already know 'credit cards are BAAAAAD!!'

But more or less to remind me never, ever to use them again if I have a moment of weakness and believe that 'oh, it's only $60 bucks' I can immediately pop the movie into the DVD player and convince myself otherwise. I think it would be good to show it to my girlfriend who doesn't know that much about the dangers or credit as she has lived a sheltered life thus far.

I ordered the movie through my local Barnes & Noble store - I love that store! only downfall is that I'll be paying $27 for it - $30 when the tax is added and If I weren't so paranoid about buying things over the Internet I'd save $10 by buying it on Amazon.com


In other news, I immediately lost my desire to purchase a new I-Phone when I learned the purchase price is $500. Reggie, will definitely not be standing in line to buy one anytime soon.

I have to get that documentary as well - I learned the hard way about the evil of credit cards..

This movie put alot of blame on the credit cards collectors and less of the consumers.

Bottom line leave credit cards alone. If you cannot handle the tricks they seem to master.

Credit cards companies are in the business to make money. They are not your friend.

I do not own a credit card. I proud of it.
