LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER 
by Scott Bilker

I'm hearing more and more reports that banks are calling to beg us to use their money. I got a call last month and they said, "We noticed you've made a large payment. Did you transfer your balance?" Oh, yeah! To a 0% offer.

They went on to offer me a low rate, actually a choice, either 1.99% for 6 months or 5.9% fixed on purchases and balance transfers forever! I took the latter.

Other friends of mine have reported receiving the same calls. Those banks are hurtin'. It's tough competition out there for our business. Always keep that in mind. You do have options!

Regards, 
Scott

FEARLESS BOOK'S REVIEW OF "TALK YOUR WAY OUT OF CREDIT CARD DEBT" 
by D. Patrick Miller

In this informative and often entertaining manual, Scott Bilker tells credit card holders how to really take charge of their debt situation by showing exactly how he does it for himself and his friends. Each chapter briefly introduces a topic like "Lowering Your Interest Rate" or "Disputes, Chargebacks, and Errors" before providing transcripts of actual phone calls that Bilker made to various bank officers to strike dollar-saving blows for the common man. Besides disguising the names of the guilty...

TAKING CONTROL OF YOUR KITCHEN 
by Gregory Thomas

Those who keep a watchful eye on where their money is spent, have long conquered the kitchen woes. No last minute panic trips to the market. No longer needing the "give-the-kids-$20-for-fast- food" solution. This is no longer a problem or even a concern for the "Kitchen Master".

You too can be a 'Master Of Your Kitchen'. All it takes is...

HOUSEHOLD MATH™: WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OTHER DOLLAR? 
by Scott Bilker

My father told me this one when I was a kid. Always stuck with me. Interesting accounting puzzle. Enjoy!

Three men checked into a hotel room and were charged $30 for which they paid $10 each. The next day, the manager realized that the men had been overcharged since the real price is $25 for the room. The manager gave the bellhop $5 to return to the three men. On the way to their room the bellhop decided to keep $2 for himself so he wouldn't have to make change. The bellhop gave $1 to each man. The three men had now paid $9 each, or a total of $27. This, plus the $2 the bellhop kept for himself, makes a total of $29. What happened to the other dollar?

CLEANING HOUSE: IMPROVING AND REMOVING DEBT 
by Damien Del Russo

Over the last year or so, I did a bit of financial reorganization. Without getting too far into the details, I'd like to recount the steps, as one or more may be helpful for others.

First, let me stipulate that I had lots and lots of debt. Suffice it to say that the amount far exceeded the value of my assets. My debts consisted of student loans, credit cards, a car loan, personal loans and a house loan.

First, whatever the reasons for getting into debt, the goal should be to...

NO MORE STRUGGLE: SEVEN STEPS TO STAY OUT OF STRUGGLE AND IN THE FLOW OF SUCCESS 
by Michael Angier

I've worked hard throughout much of my life. I still work hard and I like doing so.

What I don't like is struggle. And I've done that, too.

Working diligently at something we're excited about doesn't seem all that hard. When we're confident that what we're doing matters and we're making noticeable progress, it rarely seems like hard work.

Struggle, on the other hand, feels...
