We have no more credit cards either. We have a savings account set aside for the money I make at one of my jobs--mostly for taxes, but it serves as an emergency fund as well (like when we had to buy a new vehicle last summer when an uninsured driver ran a stop sign right in front of us). We repaid the fund and added extra to it to build up more of a reserve for that kind of emergency. I refuse to pay the credit sharks any more interest.

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
