I used to live in mortal fear of money. This completely silly phobia was born out of a ridiculous shopping problem when I was in my late teens (I hadn’t quite understood the concept of a credit card back then, i.e. that it wasn’t my money). Fortunately, my baptism by fire into managing finances has actually led to me becoming quite intimately acquainted with my bank account and learning to really redefine my relationship with money, especially as I’ve developed a career in which I manage all aspects of my business so I kind of have to have a good relationship with my finances (or you know…completely and utterly fail). Naturally, I was so excited when the Interac Association reached out to me to share their Interac  21 Day Credit-Free Challenge as it’s driving a message home that I really believe in – click through to read more!

Sometimes, a credit card can come in very handy—when I’m booking a flight, travelling abroad or setting up an online order, my credit card is absolutely indispensable. But using it every day (for that afternoon pick-me-up coffee, that bag that caught your eye while you were window-shopping the other day, the last minute cocktails with a coworker) can lead to you racking up debt and getting too comfortable with spending money that you don’t really have.

I’ve been taking part in the Interac 21 Day Credit-Free Challenge for the past few days and already feel like I’m learning so much, whether it’s the wisdom in teaming up with a friend (well, live-in boyfriend in my part—getting your partner on board makes such a difference!) or the beauty in loyalty rewards points (like Nordstrom’s Debut Rewards program that allows you to still use your money while racking up points), by signing up, every day for 21 days I receive a new piece of financial wisdom from finance expert Gail Vaz-Oxlade.
Why 21 days? Well, it takes about 21 days to both make new habits and break bad ones. So with Gail in your court and your Interac Debit card in hand in place of your credit card, you can make some real and most importantly, long-lasting changes to your spending habits.
Of course, there’s no better way to be held accountable than making your goal and progress public, so once you’ve signed up to the Interac 21 Day Credit-Free Challenge, go on your social channels and connect with others using the hashtag #21DaysCreditFree (or if you’re Francophone, #21JoursSansCredit). Good luck and happy saving!

    A replica bag will accept abounding of the http://www.louisvuittonbagshandbags.co.uk aforementioned appearance as the aboriginal yet will not buck the aforementioned marks, stamps or branding as the original. A acceptable replica may accept appearance that are abundantly abutting to the absolute thing, but there will be just abundant aberration to analyze it. Replica bag makers try not to run afield of the law, and absolute artful is a abiding alley to cher action and fines. Compare the belt on action with belts in the archive on the LV website or in a LV authorization in a admired store. It may not be a affected if it is not accessible in the abundance or the catalog. Examine the logo brand and consecutive amount on the aback of the belt. The logo brand should be centered precisely. All LV belts accept a consecutive amount irrespective of the design. The aback of the belt should be formed “Made in France,” but LV articles appurtenances in Spain, Italy, Germany and the United States as able-bodied as France, so there will be “made in “ stamps from these countries on merchandise. Disbelieve any agent who says that LV articles abandoned in France. Investigate the price. LV belts amount upwards of $500 so why would anyone wish to advertise a absolute one for $50? However, this is not all-important a assertive adviser all of the time. The omega replica commodity in catechism could be an exceptionable allowance to anyone whose aftertaste is not LV. Examine the packaging. The belt is placed in a dust bag and the amalgamation is captivated with a covering string. Accurate items could abridgement both dust bag and string, but a non-leather cord claiming to be an aboriginal is a fake. Examine the buckle. There should be a amplitude amid the basal of the letter V and the basal of the letter L on the LV catch logo. Accurate LV belt buckles are never accumulated with any cyberbanking apparatus such as a corpuscle phone. On the Daimier checkerboard architecture belts for men, the catch is placed on the additional axial abounding aboveboard in the axial bandage from the end of the louis vuitton replica belt. Examine the stitching. It should be even and not frayed. LV stitches are advised to last. Any abnormality or abrasion is a warning. Bond on the belt autogenous should be as absolute as the rolex replica exterior. Another change will be in the superior of the materials. Aback the amount is lower, the bolt will be cheaper. This agency gold-plated accessories instead of absolute gold ones, or alveolate alternation accents rather than solid. The covering acclimated ability be absolute but will not be as adaptable or soft. Closures aswell may not be as solid or sturdy. Just because a bag is a replica doesn't beggarly it has to be shoddy. A acceptable replica bag will be fabricated of acceptable abstracts and complete well. Expect a absolutely nice one to amount up to 20 percent of the replica watches absolute bag's price. The best replica accoutrements may amount hundreds. A low-quality replica, however, ability amount abandoned $25. These accoutrements don't accept the backbone of a higher-end bag and are generally from abject sources. These are abundant if the bag appearance is acutely of-the-moment.
