cutting ceremony

I had some time this morning and finally got around to going through my stack of credit cards. Half hadn't been used in a while and were already closed due to inactivity as I learned when calling creditors. This practice used to annoy me when I wanted to use the card again, but for once I've learned to appreciate it. The eulogy was moving, but short as there were a few cards to eulogize. The beagle was solemn throughout. Truth be told it was the cutting that took the longest due to the cheap scissors and my anal retentive need to be thorough with each cut. The ceremony convened in the kitchen with refreshments. Coffee, mini cinnamon rolls, water, and pupcorn (I was out of punch and pie).

My checkbook/wallet kind of looks like it was on a crash diet because it's thin again.


  1. That's awesome. I love that kind of stuff. Goodbye, cards. You ARE the weakest link.

  2. Congratulations!

    Keep up the good work ... I'm down to just a few myself, and everytime I pay one off, I raise the automatic monthly payment on the next target card in line. I also add $10/mon to my spendable income as a personal reward.
