Judging by his assertiveness, the proactive fella is every bit as bent on freeing up his cash flow and, as he points out, start enjoying his hard-earned money.

But all this will now depend on how quickly he manages to pay off the two store accounts, after bidding adieu to a loan he had, as destroying the cards is only the first step in ensuring he keeps the urge of using them at bay.

Locals were excited for him while stressing that he keeps to his commitment. Others shared their own experiences about managing credit, even urging one another to check their credit report every so often.
