I invite you to put on your “thinking cap” and test your credit knowledge. Below you will find common statements regarding credit and you need to determine if it’s Fact or Fiction.

What's the best way to pay

What's the best way to pay off debt? It depends...

When it comes to debt reduction, we all want to be rid of our debt like yesterday. We can’t pay it down fast enough. “What debt should I target to pay off first?” I’m happy to hear this question because it signals that real thought and commitment is going into debt reduction. The conventional solution is to target the bad debt with the highest interest rate first. Most accountants will tell you this is the only answer. Home loans, student loans and even car loans can be considered good debts because they allow you to build equity and net worth or learn a high paying skill or just get to a potential job.

Something Borrowed- A Bride's guide planning a wedding on a budget

Love is in the air and my husband is on the phone, booking his next gig. I married a DJ, the perfect match for a music nerd like me. When it came time to plan our wedding, he proved to be my greatest asset. As a wedding professional, he will tell you that the biggest part of your budget should go to music and photographer. “The mood and memories should last a lifetime.” I will say that the photo of him “spinning” a few at our wedding is priceless. Planning your own wedding can be stressful but fun. Share your ideas with each other and don’t be afraid to say “no” to something that you don’t like.
