Make a Debt Plan
Now that you know how much debt you have, it's time to figure out how you're going to pay it off. Don't worry if you think you don't have enough money to completely pay off your debt. There are steps to help make the most of your income and get rid of your debt for good.
Setting a debt-free goal that's too aggressive will only frustrate you when you can't make the payments you need to be out of debt in such a quick time frame. There's a right time to get out of debt and this lesson will teach you how to figure it out.
When you read this lesson, you might argue that these debts are in the wrong order - credit cards fall at the bottom of the list. Compared to other debts on the list - like your mortgage - they're less important. Falling behind on your credit cards damages your credit, but falling behind on your mortgage payments does that and puts at risk of being homeless.
When it comes to paying off your debt, you have several options. You can pay it off yourself, you can enlist the help of a debt management company, or you can file bankruptcy. Weigh the pros and cons of each option before you proceed.
This is a guide that will show you step-by-step how to make a debt payoff plan. There's even a link to a free worksheet you can use to create your plan.
