My own era of fiscal responsibility: 25. Consolidate all possible consumer debt.
PRESIDENT (!!!) Obama today spoke a lot about personal responsibility, something I have been thinking about for a while now. It’s only fitting that today was my first payment to my new debt consolidation plan. I’ve worked with this vendor before (had a debt payment plan in the early 2000′s) and really like them. I hate that I’ve gotten myself back in a place where I need to do this again, though. This is it, though. I am paying off and CLOSING my credit cards. I will keep one Amex and one Visa, that’s it. Never again will I jeopardize my life with consumer debt.
