Studies show that you tend to spend much more than originally planned when using credit. I have seen studies that show people at fast food restaurants spend 20 to 25 percent more when using credit cards instead of using cash. Paying cash eliminates a lot of risk for me. To each their own, my business is debt free and doing very well and I sleep better that way.
Theres 20 year olds all the time posting pics of the equiptment they paid cash for to get there business going or in some cases expanding it.
