Number 4 is the best ! Great advice

Don't pay interest, collect it. Stay out of debt. If you can not pay off the bill at the end of the month don't buy it. Delayed gratification is key. Respect yourself and act like a lady (think Audrey Hepburn). Dress appropriate, the booth shorts need to go away. Don't wear PJs outside your house-ever! And grown up panties do not comeIn a multi-pack.
