Are You Irresponsible With Loans And Credit

Jul 22, 2008
It is just an American tradition it would seem to buy something today and worry about how to pay for it tomorrow. This is a terrible practice that we have allowed ourselves to continue doing even when we know how difficult times are getting. Those who use good sense when it comes to their finances are learning to change their spending and borrowing habits.

If you are already stretched to the limit in your budget and are not able to put back any money back for savings at all, yet you are still tempted to use some store credit card to buy that new flat screen television you want so bad, you are either just plain crazy or terribly irresponsible. We must learn that the old ways of buying whatever we want and paying for it later has to change. That is what has gotten so many into the terrible financial situations they are in now.

A lot of people must turn to check advances and pay day loans because they simply do not have enough money to make it from check to check without it. This is fine when you have a real crisis, but too many must use these services simply because they spend too much on things they can not afford. Everything from driving a car or living in and home that is costing more than their budget allows for.

We have to begin to scale down on certain things so we have enough to buy the real necessities like food. You can enjoy walking around a large apartment that is very nice, but it might not allow you the money you need to keep food on the table.

If you are certain that you have too many bills for the money you make, get serious about a budget. Calculate the recurring bills that must be paid monthly like rent or a mortgage payment, utilities, and so on. Then look at other bills that can be paid off and done away with like credit cards. Pick the one you owe the smallest amount on a start paying as much as you can to get it paid off completely.

Then go for the next one. Getting out of debt is the way to having a better future and life style, not going into debt more. When you buy things on credit, you might appear to be more prosperous, but it is only a facade that one day you will have to pay for.
