It's wonderful to read about people getting out of debt. I love to see all their tips and strategies, all honey to the frugal heart.
So, check out this feature on CNN, which presents 8 "get out of debt" stories. You may faint when you get to the last one. The woman explains how "negotiating" with her credit card companies got her debt (incurred when starting a business that failed) reduced from $110,000 to $39,000! Honestly, if it were me, I would be too embarrassed to put my picture and name out there for all to see.
However, I don't need to go on; the comments do that for me. The others featured are so responsible and honorable. Love their stories.
Am I being too hard on Melody?
