How To Stick To Your Budget and Avoid Repossession

Oct 22, 2007
A lot of people go through trauma of having their cars or their home reposed simply because they failed to take some precautionary actions while they can. In most cases, it is easy to avoid repossession. Your creditors do not really want to take your car or your house in the first place and if you can only give them a reason not to take your home or your car, they will gladly do so.

There are many ways to ovoid repossession. Some of these things are very simple do to. For instance, to avoid repossession, make sure that you only get the things that you can afford to pay. Take a closer look into your income and compare it with your expenses. To do this, you need to list down all your sources of income in one column and then list your monthly expenses on the other column.

You can determine your monthly expenses by adding all your bills for the month and all the receipts that you accumulated over a months period. Once you have determined your monthly expenses, subtract the amount of your monthly expenses from the amount of your monthly income. The remaining amount of income after subtracting all your expenses is your free portion or your savings.

If want to get a car, make sure that the monthly amortization of your car is not greater than your monthly savings. Ideally, you have to use up a maximum of 70 of your monthly savings for the amortization of the car.

Once you get you car, you will need to revise your monthly budget to accommodate the amortization of your car. Income the schedule of the amortization of your car in your schedule of payments for the month and then set aside the amount of the amortization right after you have received your pay check for that period.

Once you have set aside a certain amount for the payment of your cars amortization, do not attempt to use that amount for any other purposes. Never think that since the due date for your car payments is still a few days away, you can borrow the money for other purposes. In most instances, you will not really be able to pay back that about in time. If you really need some money, you better get that money from your savings.

If you cannot pay your amortization on the due date, make sure that you make your payment within the same month so to avoid accumulation of the amounts due. As soon as you have the money, pay the amount due for the month.

Do not wait until next month because you might end up using the money for other purposes. Always bear in mind that once you start falling behind in your payments, it will be difficult for you to bring things back into the right track. Think about it when you are behind, the next month you will have a double payment due. If you can barely afford one payment, how will you be able to pay two at one time
