Description: The author of the article mainly talks about the experience of his cutting up the credit cards named maurices Card, and some additional details about the clothes he prepares for the student teaching.
I’m doing something that’s very difficult and scary, but I need to do it, Dave Ramsey suggests cutting up your credit cards, I should cut up, but ones like my Discover and my American Express, I’m trying to pay them off, but at this given point, my money always runs out before the end of the month.
I need a tank a gas, I don’t have any money, sometimes, I need to put that $20 on my credit card to get me through the month, as my finances are improving over the next few months, as I’m getting used to the envelope system, I’m going to stop doing that, so I decided that day vmz is all about baby steps.
This is a situation, I can apply baby steps, so I cut up one of my cards, I closed this account, this is one of the cards that gives me the most temptation, this is my maurices card, maurices is a store where you can go buy clothes, I go to the grocery store, sometimes, I want to go in and look around, because I’m bored and that gives me a lot of temptation.
My student teaching is coming up in September, I should buy some clothes to teach in and I can’t allow myself to do that, I cut this up before I can do that, when it comes to clothes for my student teaching, I try hard to put away some money, in September, right before student teaching starts.
I start teaching on the fifth, so that gives me a few days in September that I could go to a thrift store and try to find some appropriate clothing now, Plato’s Closet in Dubuque, they have some really nice clothing options, I took a few pieces to sell Plato’s Closet, I only got 15 bucks, it does not pay to take your clothes there.
I try to go to the thrift store and pick up a few pieces, when I get my financial aid back, I feel like getting some clothes to teach in, it will be a way to spend that money, so we do this, are you ready?
