How to get out of Debt

Most people at one time or another will have a debt of some sort.

A debt is a liability that you owe to someone else and most people will not be 100% debt free but there is a way that you can manage your debt more efficiently. Depending on the depth of your debt you have a few options in how to manage it. Either by yourself, with professional help or if it has gone too far – to start bankruptcy proceedings.

To avoid getting that far here are some points to follow to better manage your debt:

  1. Don’t get further into debt.
    Stop using your credit cards and watch your other debts such as your car hire purchase payments or your mortgage costs.

  2. Manage your cash.
    Start monitoring when your cash comes in and where it is going. By keeping a note of this you will see your spending habits and where money is being frittered away. You can use a pad or an excel spreadsheet or an accounting software program that will analyse your spending patterns. Total should be calculated at the end of each day, week and month.

  3. Implement a plan.
