Credit cards have become a part of the financial mainstream, but they still feel like a monkey on your back that can make you crazy. In 2007, the average American family had $7,300 worth of plastic debt. At a 2% minimum payment per month, this means the typical family spends roughly 146 dollars on card interest. Simply put most people owe card issuers something.

DINKS finance has written a great deal on credit cards.
