PfcToday, pull out your last credit card bills.  Read them. The whole thing.  Maybe use a highlighter to show the most important information, or anything that doesn’t make sense to you.  Call your credit card company if you don’t understand what you are reading.  Knowing your interest rate, or the way your balance is calculated, is a good thing.  Hopefully this won’t be too hard!
