Stewardship/Freedom 90 Holiday Tip
Avoid Credit Card Debt as Much as Possible:Be careful about how much you pay for things.Credit cards may seem like the best option, but it is a surefire way to ramp up the debt quickly.The only way you should be using credit cards is if you have the cash equivalent in the bank.Consider using a debit card only, that way you can only spend what you actually have in the bank. Anyway, this holiday is NOT about spending.
