Check out 5 money "rules" meant to be broken and find out what money rules you might have been following but don't necessarily have to be.

Dude! A former roommate tried to convince me that the last one on that list was true. She was all, "You only earn credit when they charge you interest and you make a minimum payment. If you always pay off your balance, that doesn't do anything." Uh...no.

I like that they mention the mortgate payoff stuff, too. With interest rates so low now, you really can make more investing than you'd "make" building equity. Cool article.
