Miller Lite from Costco! It should have been Mountain Crest Beer!$8.69 to $8.99 per case! Same price for lite or ice. Aside from the the beer choice, congratulations to her.

Let's hope that she and here friends do not follow Orman as a role model too closely. He he! In all fairness Oramn doesn't "advocate" her "lifestyle".

Good for her, paying off her debt, BUT, she had some help that I would think a high percentage of people with the same trouble dont have...

A Nice Job... A manager at a Marketting Firm. What's that pay? 45K+ a year?

How about doing a story about someone making minimum wage or 20-25K a year and paying off their debt? Oh, wait a minute, the reporters probably couldnt find one because no matter what they do, they cant get out. Even if they havent bought a new piece of clothing in months, dont go to the movies, dont go out to eat, etc.


They are out there.

How do you find a job in this job market?

That would make a good story and would actually help people right now.

Gee, maybe Barry can invite her to the White House and use her as a prop to divert attention from the TRILLIONS of dollars in NEW spending that he & Pelosi have put on the U.S. Treasury Mastercard.

They (you) shouldn't have borrowed it in the first place. Don't rain on this proud gal's wonderful achievement just because you are full of self-pity.

Could be wrong but i stopped reading half way through, the pioneer press must not of found anything newsworthy for sunday, so they write about this. Headline should have said " Women pays part of her debt off, then Gets DRUNK"

"They (you) shouldn't have borrowed it in the first place. Don't rain on this proud gal's wonderful achievement just because you are full of self-pity."

Sometimes debt isn't a result of lifestyle choices. While I was laid off I had a major plumbing bill due to a pipe breaking,some medical expenses not covered by insurance, and my 11-year-old car needed repairs. In a perfect world people wouldn't be living paycheck to paycheck and/or have savings for emergencies. In the real world, at least in mine, I had to use a credit card.

What they should really do is a story about how these kids run up a bunch of debt because nobody is taught to live within their means and they all think they are entitled to something wake up people you are entitled to nothing
