I haven't been posting or checking in here for awhile because frankly, it's just been same-old, same-old--just schlogging along one bill at a time with no apparent end in sight.

Yesterday, though, I got an offer in the mail from a credit-card I already have (an old business card) to transfer other business-related balance to this card for 0-percent interest! I was thinking well, I don't have any other business-cards but why can't I get a lower rate on this one? It is currently 21.49%! So I called and gave them the old

"I'm shopping around for a lower interest rate and I'll switch to something else if you don't give me one" routine. They lowered my rate to 13.99%! Whoo hoo! Now I'll be able to pay off this silly card even faster...

Here's to progress (any progress is good progress!)

Good for you! You've inspired me to call Discover card and get the final payoff balance so I can close the account. Thanks!

Oz that's great news! Thanks for sharing it - and hey - I think it's much more than a minor victory :)

I'm glad to see you posting - I was thinking about you the other day - I sort of dropped of the planet here during my wedding planning, and was really hoping to see familiar "faces" when I resurfaced.

Here I am...and here you are!

All my best,

Danni
