Later, we will discuss three payment strategies according to the arrangement of the items in your credit list.
4. Read your list carefully – majority of books about debt will tell you to tally the amounts and highlight your total debt. Doing so might intimidate you. Getting out of debt is both an act of determination and of motivation. Making a grand total of the amounts that you have in your list will most likely make you worry. Worry leads to feelings of helplessness and lack of motivation. If you make a total, you will probably go “How on Earth did this happen?” and the big figure will discourage you. A better plan would be to take on your debts one item at a time, and before you know it, you have scratched them all.
It is impossible to find a solution to a problem if you do not know what the problem is. Just like ‘knowing your enemy”, once you know how much you owe, it would be easier to plan your payment strategy.
How Will You Pay?
Before planning the payment strategy, you would have to think if you are capable of paying at all. If you that think you cannot pay off your debts, STOP RIGHT THERE AND GET HELP. The ability to pay is not only about your income, it also factors in your willingness to pay. If you think that after going through your list, you are financially incapable of paying anything you owe, it is time to let your loved ones know. They can help you find the money, they may even loan you some money without interest. Remember that taking on another loan to pay for other debts will only make it worse.
If you think you are financially capable, but you think that:
a) it is tedious to make a payment plan,
b) it is easier to just pay whatever bill is in front of you, or
c) everything is alright, I’ll worry about it when I get a Final Notice – then you need to get professional help.
Every day, credit card contact centers are bombarded with calls from customers who were asking how in the world did their
credit jumped from 1,000 to 5,000 in just a few months.
It would not do you any good to ignore your bills. Their interest rates, late fees, processing fees, and all other miscellaneous charges pile up in time. Accumulated additional fees are going to haunt you if you do not make your list and plan your strategy NOW.
Assuming that you at least have some income, and that you are determined to live a debt-free life, you can consider following strategies:
Set a Monthly Budget
Having a clear goal will define your direction, not only in making your way out of debt, but also in life. Targets will give you a sense of achievement. Setting up a short-term target will make the ride easier for you. How exactly do you do this?
You can follow the steps detailed below:
1. Assess your income – How much of your monthly income can you actually set aside for paying debts? Do not compromise your needs just to pay your debt. Doing so will make you feel deprived and may discourage you. While living frugally
will greatly help in saving money to pay your debts, it can be depressing if you’re doing it just for that purpose. Set aside a realistic percentage of your income for debt payment. The best way to do it is to subtract your monthly expenses (rent or mortgage, food, utilities, transportation, medical expenses, etc.) from your total monthly income. From what is left, set aside 5% for unexpected expenses or emergencies. The remaining 95% should all go to paying your debt.
2. Check your credit list and prioritize – What is the due date of the first item listed in the version of your list that is arranged by date? Would you like to pay the smaller debts first? Are there any items in your list wherein the principal amount has already been paid, but the interest piled up? Your answer to these questions will determine which of the three versions of your credit list will be of greatest use to you. Remember that your monthly budget for paying debt should be determined before you start your payment plan. The reason for this is because any excess should be carried over to the next month. There will be some items in your list that are either above or below your monthly budget, but do not worry about that for now.
Just think about this first: Do you want to decrease the number of creditors, or is paying larger debts more important to you?
3. Pick a date and stick with it – The items in your credit list may have different payment dates, but your income will generally be available to you in a fixed date. Pick a date after you get your income and before the next payment schedule. This will be your fixed payment date. This will help you avoid late fees and penalties. This will also help you have a mindset that paying the debt is a part of your monthly schedule. Most people who experience piled up interest are those who forget to pay on time. You can use a calendar and circle your chosen date, set an alarm on your phone, or set an email reminder for yourself.
