  • It seems with the “instant gratification” of today, people have forgotten that if you don’t have the money you can’t afford it! We were taught at an early age to save up for things. When we had the money we could then buy. But not any more. Credit cards are given out like candies and unfortunately people seem to disconnect the part of their brain that reminds them they will have to pay off their purchases plus interest. This then becomes extremely stressful!

  • You’re right about not being able to sleep. Some of my friends are under debt and have very limited incomes, and they’re so stressed about not being able to pay that they can barely sleep. Your article is wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

    Hello, I have accidently come across your website whilst I’m searching around Google as I am researching some material on debt relief!. I think it’s a good website so I have bookmarked this site and I intend to revisit you another day to allow more time for a proper browse when I’m more free.
