In order to have a better look on our financial situation we need to know the amount of money we get every month and the amount of money we spend every month. It is a very common situation that we reach the limit of not having more money to deal with till the next salary.
This is when we spend money that we actually do not have. This is the part when we can say that we are in debt and if we don’t feel like we have money problems now, more than likely we will soon have them. In order to solve this financial burden we need to get organized very well.
There are many solutions for clearing debt. First of all we need to have a precise list on the money income and the money spent. We should consider the option of cutting back on expenses. This will help us in getting money from the things we usually pay more for and now we can pay less for those things and have some money free to put aside for paying down debt.
Our main goal can be to make more money than we spent monthly. We can maybe give up on our credit cards and think twice before we use them. This option on cutting down expenses might be difficult at the beginning because we have to give up on some things that we got used having, it is much easier than to get some extra job for example, or trying to get another $10,000 loan to cover expenses.
It is possible that with careful and disciplined approach to this solution on cutting down expenses we can get enough money to be debt free. If the debt amount is bigger than our cutting on expenses possibility than we would probably need to decide on another action we are going to take in order to solve the debt problem. We might need to cancel the credit or just negotiate with the creditor for alternative ways to pay them back.
