How You Can Get Rid Of Your Loan Debt

Dec 4, 2007
It seems like everything in the news these days is debt related from housing, credit and medical problems. Our society has become driven by debt. Therefore, more and more are fighting this trend and are fighting to reduce and eliminate their personal debt demon.

Let's take a look at this journey ahead for most of us to see if possibly any of these recommendations will help us on our own road to freedom as we begin managing our loan debt.

Don't wait to act. It's no secret that getting started is the hardest part of almost everything. The sooner you begin, the sooner you'll arrive.

Change your life. Make firm decisions from the beginning that you are going a different way and reassess your living expenses and find smart ways to downsize in every area. This should include clothing, food, driving, entertainment, phone plans, etc.

Organize your financial records. You need to know exactly what you have in order to organize a visible plan you can work on and see the changes as they occur. It is also a good idea to talk with friends and family so they understand what you are doing and can offer support.

Stop using credit. Now this is a difficult one because I do believe in having a credit card incase of emergencies and for necessary identification purposes. Yet this is one of the worst problems in occurring financial debt and should be stopped altogether.

Create a written debt plan. Who should I pay first? Usually the smallest debt or the loan with the highest interest rate if it is in reach should be paid off first. Are you in a position to negotiate lower rates?

Dedicate whatever you can to debt. Some people are able to dedicate their bonus money or tax refunds. Remember, "You can live like a student now and a professional later or you can live like a professional now and live like a student later."

Make sacrifices. Now is the time to use your head wisely. Perhaps a card instead of a gift, or a book from a discount book store instead of a sweater for a present are tokens of remembrances that work best at this time in your life.

Well, here are several great ideas that should prove helpful in the war against debt. It will not be an easy journey, however, the knowledge when you are finished will be most valuable.
