On "Shortsighted, Cheap, and Unethical: Cash Only."

Agreed...shops have to raise prices because of high credit card fees. The consumer, cash and credit paying customers, end up paying more. I would rather pay cash and receive a 5% discount than pay full price with a card. A small shop may increase sales by accepting credit, but if most of their cash customers switch to paying with credit, their expenses become huge. That same customer would have to spend more to offset the fees.

@vanderlyn Are you suggesting that it is cheaper to raise an adopted child than a biological one?

On A Call To Abolish Employment Credit Checks

My employer completes background checks for criminal, education, and credit after a contingent offer is made. Not once has the offer been revoked due to credit history. It is more of sanity check than anything.

On Interview With a Person Who Paid Off $48,000 in Student Loans in Four Years

Awesome job and never discount the fact that it is incredibly difficult to sacrifice like you did! (even if it is a luxury to choose to live on less than you make)
