crazy furniture prices

Chairs “on sale” for $479? Each? I love my posterior, but not THAT much! haha… that’s seriously a lot of dough. I’d ask if anyone disagrees with me, but it’s probably pointless on a blog dedicated to personal finance. It really does amaze me, though, that there’s a market for this stuff. And even worse, this is probably on the lower side of high-end furniture. Can you imagine dishing out a couple thousand for a single chair? *shiver*

It reminds me of those loonies who pay $10,000 for a balled up piece of gum once chewed by Britney Spears. Well okay, maybe not, that’s kinda cool depending on how you look at it ;) But do you think they actually believe it’ll make them happier, or are they just feeding another vice like the rest of us?

Either way, I’ll just pretend they spend their waking hours promoting peace, and saving future generations from starvation and disease. And in that case, by all means spend away!

(but seriously, if you ever catch me buying this stuff go ahead and punch me in the face.)


Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!

If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!

What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!

PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
