In Frugal, Phenomenal

Credit isn’t bad; the misuse of credit is bad.  Credit can be very dangerous in the hands of an impulse spender or a person who defines herself by her closet.  This can cause that individual to go into a lot of debt.  However, if used wisely credit can be very helpful.  Let’s face it.  Our credit score matters because we need it if we want to buy a home and we need to carry a mortgage, to apply for an apartment, and sometimes to even be considered for employment.  Instead of thinking that credit is bad, I want you to…
