Here are 4 steps by following which you can solve your debt/credit problems all by yourself.
1.Assess your financial condition: In order to solve your debt and credit problem, at first you should get an idea regarding how you?re spending your monthly income; only then you?ll be able to plan your expenditure accordingly. So, take into account all your income sources and make a list of your variable as well as invariable expenses.
2.Plan a budget and reduce expenses: When you?ve made a list of your probable monthly expenditure, it?ll be easier for you to assess where you can cut down your expenses. Try to reduce the amount that you?ve allotted to each item instead of omitting an item altogether. For example, allot less amount of money towards entertainment as well as grocery shopping. Search your local newspaper to collect grocery coupons and use them while shopping for daily necessities.
3.Restrict credit card usage: It is quite important to reduce the usage of credit cards. Make cash purchases as much as possible. Even if you use credit cards, make sure you pay off the balance every month so that you don?t have to pay any interest on the outstanding amount.
4.Pay off/get rid of debt: Use your monthly saved amount to pay off your existing debts. You can consolidate your multiple bills/debts if you?re facing problems to manage them. In order to consolidate, transfer your high interest credit card bills to a card with comparatively less interest rate and make a single payment every month to repay the outstanding balance. You can also take out a loan and replace all your existing bills/debts by a single one. If your outstanding debt amount is too high, then you can negotiate with your creditors to reduce the payoff amount so that it becomes easier to repay them.
