By Edited Nov 6, 2015 1 2

Being in debt is never good. You are always worried about trying to pay it off and you need to pay it off if you ever want to progress forward. This guide should help you.

Things You Will Need

Intention to Lose It
A Plan

Step 1

First you need to figure out how much money that you owe and who you owe it to. You need to know how much you owe to your bank, on your car, your morgage or maybe even a friend or neighbor.

Step 2

You will definitely need to start working it off of it is a lot. So find a job, if you do not already have one, and start saving and paying off your debt.

Step 3

You need to assess why you got in debt in the first place. Really look at your budget and see if you are simply spending too much on things like entertainment or designer clothing. If you are, you need to cut your spending of that by half or all until you pay off your debt.

Step 4

Now you need to organize your payments. If you have debt to more than one category (credit, mortgage, car payments, friends) then you should start figuring out which one you want to pay off first. It works different for everyone, but usually if you only owe a few dollars to someone you should pay that off first.

Step 5

Start paying off your debt in every category bit by bit. You also should be aware of the interest rate. If one has a vert high interest rate you should begin paying that off first. Once you have one completely paid off, keep going until all of them are.

Step 6

Always make sure you have a plan on how you will pay it off. Keep striving to be debt free. Array
