    Rule 1: avoid paying interest. Exception: mortgage.

    Rule 2: repeat Rule 1 until you get it in your head.

    Rule 3: marry someone who agrees that you have to live within your means.

    Rule 4: Enjoy life WHILE you live within your means.

    That is enough to stump most young people today.....

    Rule 5: If you have 2 or more monthly payments and you pay one loan off, apply that payment to another loan as an extra payment instead of just spending it.

    Your wife will just ask for the kids during the divorce!
