Day 276 and temptation
Yesterday in the mail we got a letter from Fingerhut temporarily increasing our credit limit to $1400 through the end of December! We can use it to shop from the big holiday catalog that is coming out soon. Best of all, if we spend it all, they'll leave it increased after the first of the year. Geesh. First off, we paid off our Fingerhut account years ago and closed it. All of a sudden, the last couple of years they're sending us stuff again. The sad thing is, with Christmas coming up, this could be very tempting. I plan to throw the catalog away as soon as I get it. We have gone almost an entire year without incurring any new debt (besides the auto parts store which we're paying off). I do not plan to let temptation get me now. But it's always there, isn't it?
