Helping a friend with debt Helping a friend with debt
by Scott Bilker
My best friend is having severe credit card debt problems after a period where he had to use the cards after being laid off and having difficulty finding work and also unexpected medical bills that accumulated during his time off work. He has a balance hovering around $33,000.00. Using your suggestions I have helped him get reduced (temporary) finance charge percentages and have transferred some of the debt to lower interest cards (thanks to you!). The problem is, while he is currently able to make the monthly payments he is BARELY able to do so. Should he seek credit counseling or debt reduction?

You Cannot Afford To Say, You Cannot Afford To Say, "I Can't Afford It"
by Michael Angier
Every week I get emails from people thanking me for all the great stuff we send their way. But many of them also apologize for not buying some of our other products or the products and services we very selectively recommend to them.

We are reinforcing this false belief.

Get rich quick by auto-surfing leaves my friend in the red Get rich quick by auto-surfing leaves my friend in the red
by Denise R. Troy
Having grown up surrounded by extended family, I spent many a Sunday dinner listening to my grandmother recount stories about her life in which hackneyed expressions such as "look before you leap" and "if it's too good to be true, it probably is" were the moral lessons of that day. Some may say these seemingly trite expressions should be dismissed as old-fashioned.
Yard Sale Etiquette Yard Sale Etiquette
by Nancy Twigg
Just call me the Miss Manners of garage sales. You see, I believe there's a certain moral and ethical code governing the sacred act of selling and buying secondhand stuff. Contrary to popular belief, a yard sale is not an anything-goes, no-etiquette-needed free-for-all. As in any social situation, there are certain things you do or avoid doing in order to be polite.
