    I’ve been off of credit cards since 2004, and never financed a car in my life, and think it’s great that the younger crowd are embracing a debt-free lifestyle! I remember when I started college in the 90’s there were people set up at tables all over campus constantly trying to sign everyone up for every card under the sun.

      I got debt free except for my house several years ago. I’m hoping to hold onto that as my sons go off to college but after that I should be able to always live the cash lifestyle. It’s awesome.
