This helped me significantly. I paid off my credit cards in no time.
Thats something we can do but my mom is 70 and my dad took care of all that. She kinda knows what she is doing but since she wont let me or my brother help her what can I do. She needs help determining if her other condo is worth keeping and refinancing and so forth. She needs someone to help her...
