On Friday, Crystal guest posted about a topic that in the four years of writing Simple Mom, I haven’t dared touch with a ten-foot pole: credit cards.
But she was willing, and I love and share most of her sentiments, so I’m honored that she tackled the somewhat eggshell-walking topic. And after reading the many comments, it sounds like it is indeed a tricky subject.
Those of you who shun credit cards do so vehemently, and sincerely want others to see your perspective. Those who do use credit cards—and pay them off in full each month—might feel the need to justify their perspective. And those who feel up to their ears in credit card debt probably feel uncomfortable saying anything. So they stay silent.
So I thought I’d tiptoe around my opinion on the matter, without going in to too many details.
