dig out of debtSo, take a deep breath and consider the following tried-and-tested-debt-busting techniques very closely:

Calm down.

Just because you are in debt doesn’t mean you’ll have to deal with this problem for the whole year. Some people may seek out the wrong help or drastically take action because of panic. But doing so may only worsen your situation. What you should do is to relax so you can evaluate your situation objectively and come up with an effective and realistic solution.

 

Check your report.

Order a copy of your credit report from each of three credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, TransUnion). Take advantage of your opportunity to receive your annual report for free from annualcreditreport.com. Carefully examine your credit report and make sure that there are no unauthorized charges or inaccurate details in any of your accounts. Checking your report will also enable you to see the exact status of your debt.

Minimize expenses.

You will need every possible cent you can save to contribute to your debt repayment. As early as today, look for practical ways on how you can cut back your expenses and save money.

For example, do you really need to maintain your magazine subscriptions? One magazine subscription may cost anywhere from $20 to $30 each year. Consider switching to online magazines while you are working on debt repayment.

 

Distribute your income.

It’s important to allocate your monthly income according to your priorities immediately to avoid unplanned expenses. See to it that you set aside a budget for your personal necessities, utility bills, insurance, and debt repayment. If your salary isn’t enough to cover for all costs, concentrate on paying of your debts first but make sure that you’re not skipping payments on accounts that carry interest.

[TIPS: Good Credit Habits That Should Last a Lifetime]

 

Speak with your creditors.

The best way to manage debt is to speak with your creditors and try to come up with a repayment term that you can keep up with. Explain your present situation and let your creditors know that you are doing your best to stay true to your obligations and avoid defaulting from your debts. You’ll find that most creditors would be willing to modify their terms to help you out.

 

Avoid new debts.

As you continue to pay off your debts, see to it that you are not adding up to your pile of debts by using your credit cards on unimportant purchases. If you’re having a hard time controlling your spending, it might be necessary to seek professional help. In this case, a trusted credit counselor will be able to guide you on how to manage debt repayment and keep away from new debts. Check out the National Foundation for Credit Counseling or NFCC (www.nfcc.org/) for a list of legitimate agencies in your area.
