Brilliant or Baffling: Freezing Credit Card in Ice Block

Keeping your credit card close by can be temping on shopping trips. While I opt to simply leave mine at home when out for a day of browsing, ABC News Consumer Correspondent Elisabeth Leamy has a more dramatic solution for those who have trouble curbing credit card spending.

Leamy suggests placing your card in a container of water and putting it in the freezer, subsequently putting "your credit card spending on ice." If you need the card for an emergency, you'd just have to defrost the block of ice. Is her idea brilliant or baffling?
