Summer Credit Card Use and Links

Summer is here!

It’s a great time.  The weather is nice.  There are long days.  The kids and Mrs are off for the summer.  We go out to the pool and beach.  I love summer.

But you have to be careful.

It’s real easy to get a little loose with your credit during the summer.  An ice cream here, an amusement park, or a dinner out while on vacation shouldn’t ruin your finances.  But too much and you can find yourself struggling to pay off your credit card balance later on.

Go out and enjoy yourself but make sure you keep your spending within your means.  I don’t want to see you paying interest come Autumn!
