Pay all bills in full. Nothing wrong with using a credit card just never exceed cash on hand. Tough to order parts over the phone with cash.

People when heavily indebted always credit card debts. Actually, credit cards are good if used effectively and wisely. If abused, it will ruin your life by going bankrupt. Therefore, purchase only what you can afford to pay when the bill comes monthly.

It's taken me 1 year(13 months) to pay off a $5,000 credit card plus those finance charges too. It was rough along with a car payment, car insurance & other bills I have. But I did it somehow on my own, no help from anyone. And I was living paycheck to paycheck. I get paid every 2 weeks, not every week.

This is the first time I had ever applied for a loan. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the staff that answered any of my questions to the application process. Once this had all been completed the money was transferred quickly into my account. I will definitely be recommending 911PDAY .COM ( http://goo.gl/44kQUQ ) too my friends and family.
