Coping with the worry of debt

moneyrebound.com

I was 23 and never had an ounce of credit card debt. Although I had had a credit card since I was 16 (my mom signed for my first store card) she taught my sister and I to be smart about paying them off and not hold a balance. Interest was something she didn’t have to pay so she wanted to make sure we were not paying extra as well.
