Put bills on credit cards when I lived beyond my means because I grew up poor and was never taught how to budget properly. 5 years ago I paid that car off, still drive it to this day and plan on driving it until it dies on me. Consolidated my CC's into a low interest loan with automatic payments. 28 more months and I'll be debt free
