Amazing how this works. My CC1....I paid the minimum, which for a day made it look like I was making progress....then they added back in the interest.
So the balance went up about $300, due to interest.
The rate on this card is 19.24%. It is eating us alive. And there is nothing I can do. I tried to get it lowered, and all they did was cut my credit line (and tried to make it sound like they were doing me a favor). All I can do is what I am doing...keep plugging away.
Right now, I need to reset my expectations that we are not going to get OUT of debt...more that we are not going to create new debt.
