AMEX Blue is....


GONE! I've decided to take the advice of my good friend, Francois, and CUT IT UP! Because, really, why do I need it? Especially when I'm suppose to be operating on cash only? Grace had an interesting post about AMEX, which cemented the reasons why I didn't want to use credit again in the first place.

It's true that you can get sucked in based on "rewards", and if I were more disciplined, it might have worked in my favor. But, I truly believe that you spend less when you use cash.
So, thank you for keeping me on the straight and narrow, there will be no more credit cards....hello cash!
