I see people who spend most of their lives whining about not getting caught up with their bills but when they do get the money they just spend at the mall. I mean if you really care about your credit at all wouldn't you try to pay off your debt.

we always pay our bills, then the dreaded credit card and if there is any left over we have a little fun with it

if the bills are paid then why not but how many of your friends spend it needlessly and go the rest of the year whining about being broke

What tax refund?? I owe the IRS like $1300 and it's gonna be more this time around. See my job doesn't take taxes out of my check and since my fiance wasn't working I couldnt save any of that money. I needed all of it so I owe them money from last year. I am going to get a tax credit for having a baby but I still won't get anything back.

The fist thiing I do is pay off my bills, this year however I don't have to pay off the car as that usually takes all of my return. After I pay my bills, I give each of my kids some money to spend and take them shopping, the rest is put in my savings for things that may come up later or just things that I may want. I try to make it last as long as I can.

That's what i'm talking about. If people accutaly tried to do something for themselves and not hope they will hit the lottery or something we woudn't have such a high poverty rate. You know what i mean.
