Today I cancelled the last account I had with a shop - my Edgars card has been scrunched up, paid off and thrown away. And boy did it feel good.

You see, I'm serious about sorting out our finances this year. If there's anything that's taking an extra cent from me, it's gone. Sure it's convenient to put things on a store card - and the Edgars card worked at a few different shops - but I'm taking back control over my cash, and cutting down on the junkmail I receive at the same time.

Funny thing is, I didn't plan to cancel it when I left the house. But when I walked into that shop to pay my monthly installment plus extra, I decided I really didn't need it anymore. So it's gone.

One more step in the right direction! Yay!
