    I put my credit card debt info in one of those calculators and received the following message: By only making minimum payments it will take 51 more payments or 4.3 years to pay off the remaining balance. Interest will amount to $609. It's time to get Gazelle Intense!!

    Has anyone else gotten the notice from Chase they are increasing the minimum payment from 2% to 5%? I read on MSN it seems to be targeted toward customers that took advantage of low interest rate balance transfers. I cannot imagine how this will affect some people. At least we will have the...

    NO!! So you have a $15,000 credit card balance at 18% and you only want to make the minimum payment every month. Not a problem..., for the CC company! If you only make the minimum payment on the above scenario and you minimum is based on 2.5% of the balance your first payment will be $375.00...

    Minimum payments on credit cards are supposed to start going up by the end of this year. See article here We only have one credit card with a balance and it's at 0% for the next year. Still, I'm getting concerned. I've been working on our budget, and we are barely staying in the black each...

    The problem with housework is that it's 24/7 and the temptation is to go into all or nothing mode. If you do it all, all of the time, you are doing too much, that is inefficient but if you do nothing, sooner or later you have to play catch up and meanwhile the stress of living in a mess eats...
