YES. Control your debt, OR YOUR DEBT WILL CONTROL YOUR ENTIRE LIFE!!

I see it indirectly in my profession -- lives ruined, marriages ruined, families wrecked -- over an inability to control debt. It's mind-boggling.

And RULE NUMBER 1 -- NEVER CHARGE ANYTHING IF YOU CAN'T PAY THE BALANCE AT THE END OF THE MONTH. There are very, VERY few exceptions to that rule. For God's sake, don't pay 10+% on debt. Seriously.
