COOL QUOTE

To The Man in The Arena by Theodore Roosevelt (1910)

"It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER 
by Scott Bilker

Hi,

We're working on technical issues at DebtSmart.com so I do apologize if you experience any difficulty using the web site. Thank you for your patience!

My friend just showed me an application for a credit card he received recently. It's 9.9% for purchases but 23.9% for cash advances! If that isn't bad enough, check out the fees...$29 setup fee (one-time), $95 program fee (one-time), $48 annual fee, and a $72 participation fee (annually). That's a total one-time fee of $124 to get the account and a $120 per year annual fee!

Last issue we asked many questions about your health insurance. You can read all the results at:
http://www.debtsmart.com/cgi-pl/go/030226_en.cgi?10&7428 

Thanks again for reading the email newsletter!

Regards, 
Scott

WHAT IS CREATIVE FRUGALITY? 
by Nancy Twigg

Most people understand what creativity is, and have a good idea what it means to be frugal. But the idea of putting the two together is a little hard to grasp. Because creative frugality is one of those things that is easier to show than to tell, here is a quick list of dead giveaways for identifying creative frugality in action.

It's making something out of little bits of...

HOUSEHOLD MATH™: SANDWICH COUPONS COST 
by Scott Bilker

Every time you order a sub, whether it's a whole sub or a half- sub you get a coupon. When you accumulate 15 coupons you get a free whole sub. Four (4) of us from work are going out to lunch, everybody is going to order the Cheese, Boiled Ham, Proscuittini, Cappacuolo sandwich which costs $7.45 for a whole sub and $4.70 for a half-sub. Each person eats a half-sub for lunch and we plan on going here all the time.

We've already collected 11 coupons. Is it better to get 4 half- subs now and get the free whole sub next time, or is it better to split 2 whole subs this time and next time, and get the free whole sub on the third lunch trip?

THE TRUTH ABOUT MORTGAGE LOANS 
By Doris Dobkins

When you close on a new mortgage, your loan papers state the interest rate you will be paying for your loan. But is that interest rate really as good as it looks? Out of your monthly payment that you faithfully make each month, do you know how much of that amount is actually going towards interest?

During the signing of your loan papers, you might have noticed a large sum being...
