To Be Or Not To Be In Debt

As the amount of money you owe increases it is hard to image what it must be like being debt free; once you have admitted that there is a money problem, you can start making arrangements to clear the debts. It is important to recognize you have problem and decide to do something about it and seek a debt relief solution. To avoid the situation worsening it is important to manage your money carefully and eliminate debt as early as you can.

The first thing to avoid is being disturbed by the situation as this will hinder any positive action on your part. The order of the day is to continue paying your debts regularly unless you want your credit rating to plummet.

Create a budget for yourself by adding up all your income, payments and expenses which will help you check where your money is being spent plus your budget will highlight all the small, unnecessary expenses that can be eliminated. Cut the credit card purchases by introducing a habit of paying in cash as this will restrict your expenditure to the amount of cash you are carrying.

Any spare cash you have can be put towards a debt relief fund which, as it grows will help to clear other debts which will leave more cash free to save. Placing restrictions on how much entertaining you do whether it is a complete stop of all restaurant meals or a dramatic reduction you will ensure your fund grows faster.

No one really wants to increase their mortgage repayments but many homeowners see their only option is to refinance their home which can work but just increases the amount you pay in the long term. Before you go down this route you must think about why you want this option when there are others that can be used.

An easy, but expensive in the long run is to take out cash from your credit card to pay for the monthly bill, although this is not really a good idea. If none of these options can work, including the mortgage refinance then you may have to consider bankruptcy but take advice from a bankruptcy attorney first.

Unfortunately, some people in debt avoid bankruptcy and resort to using their individual retirement account to help pay their debts but you are on a slippery slope if you take this route. Although this can be a method of debt relief; be warned that it is not the best way to proceed.
