No More Debting!

Mary Hunt, a financial expert, talks about having the things you love without charging.

"The Smiths and Jones' – buy everything the same, have same income. The Jones' buy everything right now on credit and spend on average $1,200 per year on finance charges. The Smiths' save and have the exact same items, but put the $100 extra that they didn’t spend on finances in a savings account. In 10 years, the Smiths have $21,000 in their savings account!
