Can you Really Be Debt Free?

Apr 12, 2008
As the amount of money you owe increases it is hard to image what it must be like being debt free; your financial fate is actually in your hands and to improve your situation you will have to start looking into your options. It is important to recognize you have problem and decide to do something about it and seek a debt relief solution. Debt has become a major problem in many countries but it is important to reduce debt burdens seriously if you do not want to live with less worry.

Many people do not think clearly when this is going on around them but it is imperative you keep your head. Even if you have taken out a large loan perhaps to pay off previous debts, it is imperative that you continue to pay if you want to clear the outstanding balance.

Until you sit down and create a list of all your monthly expenditure, including everything you pay money out on a regular basis, you will not have a true picture of where all your income is going. One hard action you will face is to slow down or stop the use of your credit card then start using cash again and you will find yourself being more careful.

Any spare cash you have can be put towards a debt relief fund which, as it grows will help to clear other debts which will leave more cash free to save. If you are someone who enjoys going out for a meal of other entertainment on a regular basis then you need to cut back and you will be surprised how much money you can save each month.

No-one really wants to increase their mortgage repayments but many homeowners see their only option is to refinance their home which can work but just increases the amount you pay in the long term. You may consider this your only option but if it is just to ensure you have extra cash in your pocket each month, which is ok, just think about whether you really need too.

You can use cash to pay for your credit card debts and so reduce the monthly payments and help with your debt relief and although your cash flow will increase, so will the amount owed on the credit card. If your debt is so high that you have to file for bankruptcy because a re-mortgage option hasn't worked then you should consult a bankruptcy attorney for the best advice.

There are occasions to avoid bankruptcy, individuals use the money that has been accumulating in their individual retirement accounts but it has serious consequences for your future financial security. A good solid debt relief method should never include using your retirement funds so be aware of how risky this is.
