Credit Card Addiction

Why is it that every time you go to the mall and decide to buy something the cashiers insist on selling you a credit card?  I personally think that credit cards are from the pit of hell. is a clear form of bondage that will lure you in, pull you down slowly, and make it feel good all the way down.  Then you wake up one day shackled to a lender for the rest of your life...or at least a long time.  My husband and I have decided to rid ourselves of credit cards.  We made some mistakes early on and got into some debt.  We bought into the lie that  you NEED a credit card in order to build your credit.  By God's grace we were always able to make the our credit didn't suffer...but we did.  Anyway, the subject of credit cards is a sore spot for me.  So when I'm bombarded with pressuring saleswomen at the store that will remain nameless for now about getting a credit card i get a little irritated.  To add to the annoyance, once I said no (for the 3rd time mind you...) I was then treated like I did something wrong.  "How are you going to pay then???" said the nasty lady.  "Um...I don't know with REAL MONEY?!" said Me.  Not cool New York and Company...(oops...did I say that?)


  1. Couldn't agree with you more! Unfortunately it took me awhile and debt to realize this. I feel like if you have a credit card that your telling God you don't trust him to provide for you when it comes to money. And like you said, it just pulls you down. And I know what you mean about stores trying to get you to sign up, so annoying!
