Debts are not Bills
I usually get an idea for a blog from a comment I make at someone else's... in this case it was my comments here.
Debts are not Bills.... debts are previous expenses that you are paying for now. "People in debt have cash flowed their future right into their past."-- Me.
If people didn't have hundreds of dollars a month in credit card payments they could live their current lifestlye just fine and even be able to save some money.
My definition of a bill versus a debt is clear.... A bill is anything that will never be paid off...Phones, TV Content, Satellite Radio (which I don't have), Electric, Rent, Water, etc.
A debt will be paid off eventually.... Cars, credit cards, bank loans, student loans....
If people would stop saying "I can't pay my bills." and start recognizing debts for the cancer they are then perhaps they'd get on a health kick and start purging those silly things.
