Reduce Your Debt

The first in line creditor to pay isn't necessarily the creditor who hollers the loudest or the most frequently. Creditors who shout the loudest oftentimes do this simply because they have no other means to get the money owing them. Of more concern are creditors who not only threaten you , but who can in reality take fast action against your home, your car, or any other valuable asset you may own.

Pay back creditors that could take the fastest action to hurt you and your family...Not those creditors who are yelling the loudest and phone you the most. This will reduce your debt without having to lose any of your valued possessions.

You should apply your fixed resources to what is most needed...usually food, article of clothing, your home, and power and heating. Regrettably there's no magic trick to use to decide the order in which you should pay debts. Everyone's position will be different. Some have been successful using Debt Consolidation and Management, but keep in mind that not all of these services are created equal...Research the company before signing any papers.
