How does someone lose $15,000?
I just came to a sobering realization that I have lost at least $15,000 over the past eight years. How?
Credit card interest.
I estimate I’ve paid over $15,000 on credit card interest since I first started taking on debt in college. The figure could be higher…as I haven’t been able to bring myself to do the actual addition, but I know $15k is the minimum.
Just a couple years ago $15,000 was half my annual salary.
$15,000 is how much my car cost.
$15,000 could be a down payment on a condo.
$15,000 could take me back to grad school.
So the next time you want to swipe that credit card when you don’t have the cash to pay up, think about my $15,000.
