Handsome couple, eh?

I found their blog, The Bizarro World Debt Elimination Freakshow last week when Basil left a comment about his garage sale experience. It cracked me up so I decided to check out his blog. This is some great stuff! I love the honesty of this blog (even though they are blogging anonymously). They had over $33,000 in credit card debt and now it is down to $19,000. Their blog is their tale about paying off the rest.

  1. My Gosh, I hope that sort of debt credit card debt is not Toooo unusual. I used credit cards to fund my company. Now it has colapsed. I owe about 50K to credit card companies– seems a plausable amount to pay off.

  2. I think its important to look beyond just the size of a debt and consider the cost of the debit as well to determine the severity. The impact on cash flow to pay a $33,000 at 18% in 20 years is almost the same as paying a $50,000 at 8% over the same time frame. The balance only tells part of the story.
