4 Steps to Get Out of Debt

Are you in debt? Here are 4 steps that can help you to get out of debt.

Make Small Payments

Break your large debt balances down into smaller and more manageable payments based on a realistic budget. Making these smaller payments over time will help you to pay off your credit card in a more manageable way.

Pay Debt Faster with Accelerated Payments

If you want to pay off your mortgage faster than you should accelerate your payments. You can change the monthly payments to semi-monthly, bi-weekly or weekly if you can. This will reduce the amount that you owe and the time that it will take to pay off your mortgage.

Avoid Impulse Spending

It is a good idea to track your spending and see what you are spending your money on. You might be surprised about how you spend your money and those impulse buys can quickly add up.  Have a look at where you can make cuts and use that money to pay off debt.

Create a Spending Plan

You should create a spending plan or a budget that shows your monthly expenses and what free money you have. This will also help you to identify areas where you can make cuts and the amount of money that you have spare each month, which can go towards debt.
