Are you in debt, it seems like most people are, any advice ?
January 14, 2007 5:33pm CST
Do you see a solution to this ? I'm in debt and my credit is destroyed, I'm a full-time student and I work full-time, but it only covers my bills, I really want to get back on track. I owe about $10,000 on credit cards which I know longer can use, but I want to fix it. Any advice ? Any one in this type of situation. I'm 25 with no children and I'd eventually (soon) like to own my own home.

you need to call your credit card company an work with them on a payment plan.most of them will work with you if you are honest with them.take your tax refund an pay on your credit card if you get any refund.take they money you get from mylot an make a small payment.thats is better than a none payment

Are you able to make your minimum payments? What I have been doing, just to make my payments count for a bit more, is to pay them a few days earlier. The interest on credit cards is calculated daily, so I figure I save a few cents in interest by paying early. Whenever possible, I round up my minimum payment to the next ten. And if I have a bit of extra money, I send it in, too. Every little bit helps.

you should seek help from your local citizens advice bureau about your debt, the offer free impartial advice and can write letters to your creditors on your behalf and request that you pay your creditors the minimum payment each mo0nth which can be as low as £1, they do offer a great and quickly/easy service, plus it's all free. good luck with what you decide on doing and hope this helps! :)
