the nightmare stories about spending gone bezerk. However, there
is a great way to combat overspending. UCMS recommends that you
track your transactions similarly to the way you track your checkbook.
You want to record purchases, update balances and register payments.
We have a simple device that we can give you. Just send us your
name & address and $2.00 for shipping and handling and we'll
mail you a handy "transaction recorder" that fits over
you credit card. You'll never be surprised by your balance ever
- don't let the tide of unpaid interest swallow you up.
