Debt – it’s the worst four letter word you can face this year, and finding your way out once you’re there is more difficult than you may have ever imagined. Is there anything you can do to get out of debt fast and get your life back on track? Take a look:
Make a Plan
Outside of your monthly bills, you may not have any clear indication of where your money goes. It may help to make a plan. The key here, though, is tracking everything. For a full month before you make your plan, write down absolutely everything you spend. Whether it’s a dollar at the vending machine at work or a hundred dollars at the grocery store, keep track of everything so you can see exactly how much you have left. Then start building a plan to address your spending issues.
Start Paying Debt Down
Start by ending your use of personal credit cards. Take them out of your wallet so you won’t be tempted to use in them in the future, then pay down as much debt as you can every single month. If you find yourself with an extra five or ten dollars, use it to pay your debt down.
One of the biggest problems with debt is that you don’t have anything left to save every month to deal with emergencies. If you can put just a little back each month to tackle an emergency when it comes up, you’ll be more equipped to deal with your debt in the future.
