I've been the one in charge of finances but I don't like to tell anyone no...especially my Hubs since he works so hard. When we first got married, I was the one with the career and the good paying job. We threw that out the window when the kids were babies and my husband enlisted in the Army. I was able to be a SAHM for many years.
We accrued debt but would always pay it down one way or another...however in the last few years it's a mountain I can't get us out from under. Let me say, all of our bills are paid and up to date but we're still hovering @ $25K in credit card debt. I just never knew how to tell anyone to put the brakes on.
Last night the Hubs was in my email and saw a note from our bank that they received the statement from a creditor. He was shocked at the balance. He wants to know how much we owe and I am so scared to tell him. I quite literally couldn't sleep last night and feel like the world is going to end.
I do have a seasonal job with a tax company and we are facing another move mid-summer.
How can I begin to fix this? I tore up all the small cards and most of those actually have small balances hovering from $300 - $600.
I know I'm a terrible person....
