					Determining What Your Current Debt Is
Quote: The safe way to double your money is to fold it over once and put it in your pocket. - Frank Hubbard The very first thing that you need to do to address your current financial position and reduce and eliminate your debt is to determine exactly what your current debt is. Now this probably comes as work out might seem very obvious and when you ask most people they would say that they know how much money they owe but more often than not it a great surprise to them when they sit down with a pen and paper to exactly what the current debt actually is.

It is very difficult to remember precisely how much you owe on so many different areas of debt and it is only when you do take account of all the individual debts and add them up that you can actually see the extent of your debt. Be prepared for a surprise because that is what happens most often and it will give you a really good picture of why you are struggling to make ends meet each week and why all the income that might seem reasonable isn't enough to cover your outgoings. So step number one on your debt management program is to address the situation. It is only after you have done this that you will be able to create a budget that will help you move towards eliminating debt from your life. You will be able to compare your monthly spending to your monthly income and that will give you the opportunity to see how much is left over if any to start reducing your debt. When you are making a note of your debt you must ensure that you put down everything that you owe even the most minor of debts because at some stage they need to be settled and even small debts that are left unpaid can give you a bad credit rating.

Budget to Gain Control
Quote: We can tell our values by looking at our checkbook stubs. - Gloria Steinem
Once you have calculated precisely how much money you owe then it is time to create a budget that will help you to use your income more efficiently by covering all your necessary expenditure and working towards the elimination of your debt. A budget can be prepared in a book or more effectively online using a program such as Excel. Now when you prepare your budget you need to take into account everything that you can think of relating to income and expenditure and this budget will need to be updated on a regular basis as more things come to mind when there are changes in your financial position. For More Information Budgeting http://www.homemoneyhelp.com/ebookadpage3.html

This is why it makes it a lot easier to use a program such as Excel where totals can be added quickly and you will be able to see in a matter of seconds which direction you are going in and whether the steps that you have made have resulted in positive changes towards your financial well-being. Where you are unsure about specific parts of the budget such as how much money you spend per week on food and other essential items, you will have to make an estimate initially until you are able to take notes the next time you go to the shops and see precisely how much you spend. Once you get some of these figures you will be able to determine whether you are overspending in particular areas and what you can do about reducing such expense. Your food shopping is one area where you can save a considerable amount of money because most people don't have any strict limits on their food spending. Once again changes can only be made if you know precisely what you've been doing in the past and where you can make the changes in the future. It might mean that you have to completely change the types of foods that you are buying and often the benefit of doing this is you improve your health along the way by buying food that is better for you. Budgeting is your way to gain control over your finances once again. In fact it is the only way for you to gain control. It is a lot easier than you might expect and once you begin to use a budget you will wonder how you ever managed your finances in the past without having a budget.

Making the Right Moves when Debt is Excessive
Quote: There is a very easy way to return from a casino with a small fortune: go there with a large one. - Jack Yelton
While the budget will help you to manage your debt and to begin eliminating outstanding debt if you have excessive amounts of debt then you are going to need to take a little more action to reduce the impact this will have on your life, your credit rating and your future. If you have a lot of creditors or a lot of debt owing to creditors then you will probably need to contact them and try to work out some deals were you can pay them off in installments over a period of time that is manageable. If you're already paying installments then they might need adjusting so you can handle them more easily. For More Information :. Debt Free in Three Years http://www.debt-free-in-three.com/

Your budget should have the details of all of your outstanding debts and the amounts that you should be paying. With this information you can work out accurately how much you can afford to pay and then present that to your creditors to see that they are happy to allow payments at a reduced rate if necessary. Expect them to try to pressure you into higher payments but if you let them know that your budget only allows for a specific amount to be paid per period then more often than not they will agree to it knowing that the debt will get cleared in that manner. Sometimes it is necessary to borrow more money to pay off existing debt and while you will be reluctant to borrow money it can be beneficial where consolidation of debt reduces costs in the form of penalties and interest. You should only borrow if you can find money at a lower interest rate than the debt that is currently owed. You can also get help from good credit counseling agencies that will help you to prepare a budget and negotiate with your creditors to reduce payments. Often they will give you other advice that will help with the management of your finances and will be invaluable to helping you improve your financial position. And finally if worst comes to worse and you really can't afford to pay off the excessive amount of debt that you have built up there might be no alternative but to file for bankruptcy. You will need some professional advice as to when and how to do this as it can make the difference between eliminating your debt completely or alternatively giving you three to five years to pay off what is owed.

Managing Debt Collectors
Quote: My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income. - Errol Flynn
Debt collectors have a job to do and they are paid accordingly as a percentage of the amount of money that they recover from you. Obviously it is in their best interest to recover as much money as possible and many of them will resort to all sorts of tactics in order to extract funds from you whether you can afford it or not. Debt collectors are also aware that the majority of people don't know the laws as they stand with their powers of collection and the rights you have that cannot be violated. For More information Creditors and Debt Collection http://www.eliminationsecrets.com They are only allowed to contact you between the hours of 8am and 9 pm and if you send them a written letter not to contact you again in relation to a particular debt they have to abide by that request and can only contact you again to inform you of any further action they will take in the recovery of the debt. They cannot contact you at your place of employment if you inform them that this is not allowed and they are not allowed to contact you excessively as this is classed as harassment. Obscene or insulting language is also not allowed although many debt collectors will use such tactic to intimidate people and get them to pay more than they can comfortably afford. Many debt collectors will buy your bad debt off your creditor and then it is up to them to recover their money from you so they can get quite aggressive in their recoveries. If you are in a position where you are expecting a debt collector, know your rights and don't allow them to 'bully' you into making a payment that you can't afford. Sometimes you will be able to discuss an arrangement with them to pay off the debt and this is obviously the best solution as they will get their money eventually and you will be able to pay it back at a rate that your budget has determined most suitable. Always try to work through your money problems with those involved in an amiable manner as this is usually where you get the best deals that will keep both parties happy.

Take Care of the Most Important Debts
Quote: Car sickness is the feeling you get when the monthly payment is due. - Author Unknown
You need to prioritize your debt repayment and ensure that the most important debts are taken care of first. The importance of the debt is determined by the impact that it can have on your life both now and in the future so clearing past due taxes would be one of the first debts that you would have to look at due to the penalties and compounding interest that you will have to pay and the fact that the IRS has so many powers to seize assets and make life very difficult for you. For More Information :. Debt Free in Three Years http://www.debt-free-in-three.com/

A mortgage is another debt that needs to take top priority as losing your house can impact on your ability to pay all your other debts and also make it difficult for you to find accommodation elsewhere. If you don't have your own home then you need to ensure that your rent and utility bills are kept up-todate so you have a roof over your head and are able to live in suitable conditions to be able to work your way through your money problems. Your budget will give you a clear indication of the total amount of debt that is owing to others and from there you can set your priority list where you can start working with the people you owe money to and sort out payment plans with your creditors and your own steps to clear your debt. Medical bills and court-ordered child support debt are also high on the priority list as failure to pay these can result in drastic action being taken that will once again make it difficult for you to work your way through your other debts. Car loan repayments are a priority because car finance companies will quickly repossess your car if you fall behind with the payments and this can impact on so many other areas of your life such as your ability to get to your place of employment. Don't be forced into paying minor debts at the hands of debt collectors if you haven't covered these priority debts first. For More Information :.

Understanding Debt Better
Quote: Inflation hasn't ruined everything. A dime can still be used as a screwdriver. - H. Jackson Brown, Jr. Not all debt is bad and while you might consider it to be so at the moment when all you can think about is the overwhelming amount of debt that you need to repay and the problems that it has caused, you will also need to understand that often it is worthwhile having debt. For a start having debt on appreciating assets such as a mortgage on your home can be a good thing because the value of your house will be increasing at a rate that is far greater than the amount of money that you could save and quite possibly you would never be able to save the amount of money required to purchase a house in the first place. For More Information Budgeting http://www.homemoneyhelp.com/ebookadpage3.html

For most people this will be the only type of debt that is worthwhile having simply because the advantages far outweigh the cost of the debt in the form of interest. The debt that is incurred for purchasing items that can't be regarded as assets, for example motor vehicles where they are depreciating and you are losing money the longer you own them, can't be regarded as good debt. Credit cards are one of the biggest causes of financial problems in the country but they too have their uses and in particular when you're trying to rebuild your credit history by taking out smaller amounts of borrowings and paying them back on time all the time. Getting small amounts of credit card debt and repaying it, can help you to move on to personal loans and then eventually you'll have the opportunity to get a mortgage to purchase a house again even if your past create history has been bad. So you can see that in the right circumstances there are various reasons why debt can help you have a more fruitful life. Racking up restaurant bills and purchases of the latest fashion items on your credit card can never be regarded as good debt in anyone's books.

Improving Your Credit History
Quote: I am opposed to millionaires, but it would be dangerous to offer me the position. - Mark Twain
Improving your credit history is basically about doing the opposite to that which caused you to get a bad credit history in the first place. You got a bad credit history by not making good the debt that you owed to other people either on late payments or failure to make the payments at all. This bad credit history remains in your name for 7 1/2 years and any time you go to borrow money, rent accommodation or virtually anything else that involves the need to check your credit standing you are going to be at a disadvantage. For More Information Life Without Debt http://www.extremegetoutofdebt.com So what can you do to make up for your past errors? Simply by doing the opposite to what you did in the past and borrowing small amounts of money but ensuring that you pay them back on time all the time to start to build up a good credit history will begin to compensate for your past efforts. When many people get on top of their debt problems they are very reluctant to go back to borrowing again however in order to get your own house and a mortgage that will be necessary in order to buy it, you need to start rebuilding your credit history and unfortunately the only way that that can be done is by borrowing and proving that you have changed and can meet your responsibilities to the financers. You don't have to borrow a lot of money and in fact it is better to do smaller amounts at various different places so you get good credit reports from a wider range of people. Credit cards are the easiest way to get started rebuilding your past and then buying the occasional item provided it is a necessity and at low cost on hire purchase where you make monthly payments over a set period of time and don't miss any payments as the next step towards your goal of getting lending institutions the confidence to work with you further.

Understanding Why You Spend
Quote: They who are of the opinion that Money will do everything, may very well be suspected to do everything for Money. - George Savile
We all have reasons why we spend and aside from the necessities in life many of us love to spend for various different emotional reasons. Just as some people 'reward' themselves or find comfort in chocolate there are many more who spend money in response to certain emotions. Are there occasions in your life when something has happened where you immediately feel like you need to go out and celebrate by either buying something or having a meal at an expensive restaurant? For More Information Life Without Debt http://www.extremegetoutofdebt.com

Many people buy material items in an attempt to make them feel better about themselves. It is not uncommon for people with low self-esteem to spend money on items that they think will give others a higher opinion of them. People buy expensive cars or yachts to boost their ego. Some people buy when they are happy and some people buy when they are sad. Many people these days buy with no thought about the future and the fact that they are going to have to pay off the debt that they have just incurred today for the next year or so. Impulse buying can be particularly dangerous as it is generally for items that you don't need and the debt that comes with these types of purchases is something that you definitely don't need and will possibly regret for a long time. If you can define precisely why you buy then you will be in a lot more control over your financial future and you will understand that the short term benefits that you get from your buying sprees are certainly outweighed many times over by the stress and worry of the financial burden that they bring with them. It might even be necessary to see a professional for consultation to help you change these bad habits that are getting you into financial strife on a regular basis. More often than not they are just bad habits and we are unaware of what we do a lot of the time. For More Information Life Without Debt http://www.extremegetoutofdebt.com

Income and Spending
Quote: I cannot afford to waste my time making money. - Louis Agassiz
Gathering the information necessary to compare your income with your spending can be quite eye opening for most people. By doing this over the period of the last year you will get a better understanding of where your money has been going and why you have landed in a situation where the debt is overpowering you. The income is easy to sort for those people on wages as that will be fixed for the year and it would be relatively easy to make a list of the fixed expenses such as your rent or mortgage your insurances and other such factors where you know the exact amount that you will be paying each month. You can make estimates of how much you spend on your shopping for necessities and while you might make an attempt to calculate how much money you fritter away from one week to another almost everybody who does this exercise finds that they have underestimated considerably the amount of money that they have been spending.

For More Information Budgeting http://www.homemoneyhelp.com/ebookadpage3.html
If you are able to calculate how much money you had in the bank and how much debt you had at the beginning of the year and then add and subtract your income and your expenses as you have already calculated them you should come up with a balance of where you would expect to be now. The next step obviously is to calculate exactly where you are now and the difference between that figure and the previous figure is the amount of money that you have frittered away without realizing that you've been spending it. So where did all this money go - you might ask yourself. Often it's the little things that you don't consider worthwhile recording such as the cup of coffee you have every day with the occasional take-away that you have once or twice a week. Maybe it's the magazines that you buy each week or some other relatively small expense that adds up with all those other relatively small expenses to create a big deficit in your finances over the term of the year or so. These are the areas where you can cut back or eliminate spending that will have a huge impact on your ability to reduce your debt and remain debt free once you have put yourself in that position. Many little expenses add up to one big debt.

Changing Your Attitudes to Money
Quote: It is an unfortunate human failing that a full pocketbook often groans more loudly than an empty stomach. - Franklin Delano Roosevelt
You will begin to understand why there is a need to change your attitude towards money as it can make your life a whole lot easier if managed correctly just as it can present you with ongoing stress if it is mishandled. The fact that you have created a problem of excess debt is due to having the wrong attitude towards money. By going through the process of preparing a budget and seeing exactly where your money has been going and how much waste there has been you will be able to change your ways and never get in a similar situation again. When you consider the things you might have been able to do with that 'lost' money you will begin to see that the alternatives are very often so much more appealing and the habit of frittering away funds will be able to be corrected.

For More Information Debt Free in Three Years http://www.debt-free-in-three.com/
Often the amount that people waste on minor expenses, such as daily coffees and takeaway foods can represent a luxury holiday once a year and surely that would be much more appealing. Money is not something that can solve your emotional problems and spending money on luxury items that aren't necessities might give you some short term satisfaction but the long term stress and worry that excess debt brings with it is something that I am sure you will want to avoid ever having to deal with again. It is your choice to take charge of your finances and it is as simple as starting a budget and setting realistic short term and long term goals and then making those goals become a reality. Money can make you very happy and give you an excellent lifestyle if it is managed properly but even those who are earning huge incomes frequently fall into financial strife due to an inability to manage their finances. If you follow the proven steps to financial survival you will be better off than the majority of people and in the long term you will be able to afford more of the things that you desire than you would do otherwise. Your attitude towards money and debt has a huge bearing on the quality of your lifestyle.

Managing a Budget Deficit
Quote: After a visit to the beach, it's hard to believe that we live in a material world. - Pam Shaw
If your expenses are greater than your income then you have to contend with a budget deficit and there are only two ways you can deal with this. You can earn more money or you can spend less - it is as simple as that. Unfortunately it is easier said than done some of the time and that's why many people get into debt in the first place by topping up the deficit with money from credit cards and other high interest loans. Your budget will help you to focus on areas where you can cut your spending. Obviously you will be looking at luxury items first and those non-essential items that will be easy to eliminate. If you can eliminate your budget deficit by getting rid of these non-essential items then you are in luck however it might not be quite that easy for you to reduce your spending enough to make up the deficit. If that is the case then you will have to go back over your budget again and see the areas where you can cut your spending to try to close the gap between income and expenditure.

For More Information Budgeting http://www.homemoneyhelp.com/ebookadpage3.html
If you are putting a percentage of your income aside a regular basis for some type of saving scheme then you might need to consider canceling that saving until you have managed to reduce your debt to such an extent that you are able to cover your costs with your income. Once all areas of cost-cutting have been exhausted you are left with the only other alternative of increasing your income and you will need to look at whether you're able to increase your hours of work or possibly even get a second job to bring in enough additional income to cover your expenses. One way or another unless this budget deficit is eliminated you will be destined to continue accumulating debt and the more you do that the more difficult it will be to bridge the gap.

Which Debts Need Paying First
Quote: The real measure of your wealth is how much you'd be worth if you lost all your money. - Anonymous
The debts that need paying first are the ones that will cause you the most grief if left unpaid. It goes without saying that taxes are at the top of the priority list as the IRS has more powers than anyone to recover the monies owed to them and failure to pay their account on time will not only result in interest but also penalties that can quickly mount up to more than the original debt. Medical debt is also high on the list of priorities and it is essential that you look after your health and that of the members of your family. Without good health you will need more money to pay for your health care and if you can't provide sufficient health care for yourself and those who are under your care then the long term problems that can come about from that are often much more costly than the original debt.

For More Information Creditors and Debt Collection http://www.eliminationsecrets.com
Student loans and child care support are both top priority as they are debts where government departments get involved and they have wide reaching powers to recover monies owed to them to such an extent that they can actually make your debt reduction program more difficult to achieve. You should learn to prioritize all aspects of your life from the debts that you need to pay first to the tasks that you need to get done each day. Time management will help you through your daily tasks and financial management will ensure that you have the least problems possible with your creditors by paying those who must be paid first. Just because a debt collector starts putting pressure on you to pay a minor debt doesn't mean that other more important debts should wait for payment. Take control of the situation in all instances where possible and stay with the budget and the process that you have created for efficient debt control.

What to do with a Budget Surplus
Quote: The only reason a great many American families don't own an elephant is that they have never been offered an elephant for a dollar down and easy weekly payments. - Mad Magazine
Where there is a budget surplus you should apply those funds towards clearing the debt that you are paying the highest rates of interest on. Where you have accounts that offer a discount for early payment you should also take advantage of those discounts by applying the budget surplus towards them. Until you have cleared your debt you shouldn't consider using the surplus for investing, as the money you will receive from the investment, less the tax that you will pay on that income, will be less than the amount you will save in interest payments for clearing debt.

For More Information Debt Free in Three Years http://www.debt-free-in-three.com/
Always look for the most benefits for each dollar spent and in almost all cases there is no better benefit than clearing debt. Of course once you get to the stage where you have your finances in order and everything is under control budget surpluses can be better spent on investing in appreciating assets such as property, provided the property market is rising, and only where you will be able to make more money from borrowing to buy the property than you would using the money elsewhere. That is something you can look forward to once you have managed your debt and with your ability to budget well you will be able to calculate the ratio of income to expenditure and determine whether it is a good investment that you will be able to handle comfortably before you spend your money. You will be able to make all your decisions based on simple steps that will eliminate all the guesswork and ensure that you don't get into financial difficulty again. Sometimes you only need to change a few factors in your life to go from a budget deficit to a budget surplus and that is what you will be aiming to do as soon as possible. The more of the budget surplus you apply to debt the bigger the surplus will become and this affect begins to accelerate over time.

Slashing Your Spending
Quote: I'd like to live as a poor man with lots of money. - Pablo Picasso
The first step towards eliminating debt is to look at all areas of your spending and slash the items that aren't vitally necessary for your survival. You are in survival mode now so you need to think in that manner. Luxuries are off the menu until you are in a position to sleep peacefully at night and not fear the phone ringing thinking it is a debt collector on the line. Day to day spending of 'petty cash' adds up to a considerable amount over the course of a year and it could be enough to clear one of your outstanding high interest debts. Even buying one coffee a day can amount to quite a bit of money at the end of the year. Not only will that reduce part of your debt but you will also be saving interest that you would have been paying on that debt and the compound effect is more significant as time goes by.

Making your own lunch and taking it to work rather than buying it from the shop can also save a lot of money and you might be doing your health a lot of good in the process by eating better food. Cooking your evening meals at home rather than going to takeaways or restaurants is one of the best ways to start slashing your spending. Maybe you spend a little too much on clothing and you really don't need to have the latest fashion item when other suitable clothing is still hanging in your closet unused. Are there any places that you could walk to rather than drive the car and save money in gas? There are so many small areas where it is quite easy to slash your spending without impacting on your lifestyle all that much and it is these little drains on your income that are happening on a regular basis that are responsible for a lot of the debt that you have to be concerned with today. This is the sort of money that you don't even notice going out of your pocket but you do notice the debt that accumulates because before you know it your creditors are knocking on your door asking for repayment. Prepare a shopping list before you go shopping for groceries and make sure you stick to that list rather than buying anything that catches your eye while you are in the supermarket. Supermarkets are designed specifically with the way the items are placed to make people buy and having a list of items you require before you enter the shop makes it a lot easier to manage the temptation that they put before you to buy. Write down every dollar that you spend for the week and then add that spending up to see just how much money you waste without realizing. Add this to your budget and then work towards slashing as many areas of spending as possible.

Making More Money
Quote: No matter how hard you hug your money, it never hugs back. - H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Besides reducing your spending and making the most of the money that you earn the other way that you can reduce debt faster is to make more money. Whether you are self employed or work for a wage you should be looking at ways to work longer hours where possible to make more money. There are two opportunities to get ahead when doing this.

For More Information Debt Free in Three Years
http://www.debt-free-in-three.com/ Firstly the increased income can go directly towards reducing debt and by doing that you will be reducing the interest you will be paying on that debt and secondly there is the added benefit of the fact that you be either too busy or too tired to spend money elsewhere. Even if it is only for a short term the additional money that you will earn and can mark off against your debt can have a huge impact on the time that it will take you to reduce and eliminate your loans. You might be able to refinance some of your loans for a shorter term by being able to make bigger monthly payments. The additional money gives you more control to budget better and to make the most of discount opportunities and interest rebates for early repayments of loans. If you are already working long hours and can't possibly fit in an additional job or more hours at your current job them maybe it is time to start looking around for other employment that pays you more. There are always other opportunities and even a small increase in income might be all you need to get over the next hurdle. Ask for a pay rise and you might be pleasantly surprised to find that you get one. You need to think in a manner that you have to survive and you should take the courage to do all that you can to get through your financial turmoil. What is worse - The stress of debt or the fear of asking for a pay rise? You need to take action right now and you can change your future. The benefits are too great to let opportunities go by without seeing if they are available. When it comes to debt management there is no better time than right now to make proactive steps towards resolving your problems.

Handling Your Creditors
Quote: Waste your money and you're only out of money, but waste your time and you've lost a part of your life. - Michael Leboeuf
What is the best way of handling your creditors? You will need to look at things from their point of view to understand the way that they will react to the fact that you haven't paid your account. They have given you a product or service that has cost them in time or money and all they expect in return is for their account to be paid. They are trying to run a business and for all that you know they might be faced with financial difficulties themselves where they are reliant on getting the accounts paid on time to cover their expenditure.

For More Information Creditors and Debt Collection http://www.eliminationsecrets.com
So when you are faced with a situation where you can't pay your creditors you need to contact them as soon as possible to explain the situation and assure them that you will pay the account as soon as you can. You need to make them feel satisfied that they will be getting their money even though there will be a delay and that delay has only been caused because you simply have no alternative. This communication will reduce the chances of creditors taking legal action against you to recover the money. It will make them feel a lot more comfortable than for you to remain silent and not let them know what is going on and have one month dragged into the next when your account hasn't been paid and they become ever more frustrated at the fact that you are not responding to their requests for payment. Treat them as you would hope to be treated yourself if you were in a similar situation. Remain in contact with them on a regular basis even as you are paying off your old debt to keep assuring them that full and final payment will be coming. This will help to build some form of trust between you and your creditor and they will begin to understand that you are making a concerted effort to clear your account.

Consolidating Your Debt
Quote: Money is a headache, and money is the cure. - Everett Mmor
Consolidating your debt can help you to manage your debt more easily by helping to pay off many creditors at once with the use of another loan. While this is generally only a transfer of debt from one place to another you can often get better interest rates on these new loans, particularly if you get it through your bank as a personal loan or by using your home as equity and that in itself can save you money. By consolidating your debt at a lower interest rate you will be able to reduce your debt faster and in the process have the ability to pay off your high interest debts sooner.

It might also give you the ability to take advantage of saving money by making your loan repayments earlier and sometimes you can get discounts for paying debt on time. Having one loan rather than a number of individual debts can make your budgeting a lot easier and can also reduce the number of debt collectors who could be calling at your door seeking payment of outstanding debts. If you do decide to consolidate your debt then calculate precisely how much you need, to cover the various debts that you want to clear, and use the new loan to pay off that debt immediately otherwise you might be tempted to use the money elsewhere and in doing so create even more debt. It might even be worthwhile having your new consolidated debt payable over a longer term to reduce your monthly payments and help you to focus on other more important or higher interest debts sooner. The whole idea of debt consolidation is to improve your financial position and you should be looking at ways that you can do this. You must make sure that the interest payable on your new consolidated debt is fixed at a rate that you can budget for as it is too risky getting a variable interest rate loan where the rates could rise and leave you in a more difficult position than you would have been had you not consolidated. If you are working with a credit counseling agency then discuss your intentions with them beforehand and get their expert advice on what the best solution for you will be.

Credit Counseling
Quote: This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy. - Douglas Adams
Credit counseling agencies can offer you a lot of help in reducing your debt. With the experience that they have they will be able to quickly sort out a budget for you and show you how to manage your budget, your income and your expenditure. Get recommendations from people within your area who have used specific credit counseling agencies and have been pleased with the results because there are many who don't deliver what they say. A good credit counseling agency will be able to review all aspects of your budget and set you realistic goals that you will be able to achieve.

They will understand your requirements and help you to work around your problems while still maintaining a reasonable standard of living. They will review all your finances and make suggestions on whether or not you need to refinance, consolidate your loans, or anything else that needs immediate attention. If you find yourself a good credit counseling agency they will work with you over the long term tuning your budget to suit as your needs change and your debts decrease. They can also help you come to arrangements with your creditors and other lenders to help you pay off your debt and to ward off legal action for the recovery of outstanding money. Check their fees before employing them as there are many who charge excessive amounts that will get you into more debt than they can help you get out of. Some of these agencies are non-profit but don't assume that they are without checking their credentials and that can be done by getting a copy of an IRS approval of non-profit status. The genuine non-profit credit counseling agencies will be the cheapest but just because you won't be shelling out a lot of money doesn't mean you won't be getting the best of advice. Often these non-profit organizations have a better understanding of the difficulties that the ordinary person faces handling their finance. If you are to expect the best results then you will have to reveal everything you can about your income and expenditure, your debts and the problems that you have had with payment of your debts, and your credit history. It is only when they have the full picture that they will be able to make the best decisions to see you progressing towards your goal.

Managing Past Due Mortgage
Quote: Life shouldn't be printed on dollar bills. - Clifford Odets
Nothing damages your credit history more than a foreclosure so you will want to avoid it at all costs. Add to that the emotional strain of losing your most valuable asset and the time and effort that has gone into building your equity in your home and you can see why it is ranked as one of the most distressing events that can happen in a person's life. The information here is a general overview of the terms that apply to most mortgages. You will need to check the terms of your mortgage to ensure that the same terms apply to you.

For More Information Debt Consolidation http://www.ultimatedebtguide.com
You will have 15 days after the due date for payment before you will be charged any penalties for late payment of your mortgage. After that you will be charged a late fee and the bank will generally contact you to find out when payment will be made. Once 30 days are up and you haven't made payment the bank will most certainly be in contact and need information as to why you haven't paid them. If you are still having difficulty making the payment then you should contact one of the government agencies such as the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development to get some assistance to work with your lender to resolve your payment problems. Between 45 and 60 days the process moves to the next level where the lenders attorney will get involved and issue you with a notice of default which will detail the amount you need to pay to clear the arrears unless you have already contacted your lender to come to an arrangement for payment. After 60 days if nothing else has been worked out you will get a notice of acceleration which means the total amount of your loan and not just the past due amount is payable in full. You will also be told the date when your property will be sold to cover the mortgage if you can't pay it beforehand. This is the start of the foreclosure. You still have time to avoid the loss of your house at this stage however the longer things are left the harder it gets to retain ownership. Even after 3 months and before the house gets sold the lender will usually be happy to come to a suitable arrangement where you can clear the past due and get your payments current again. This also depends a lot on your past history and whether you have regularly missed payments. If you fear that you will be unable to make the necessary payments due then make sure you take action as soon as possible. Contact a bankruptcy attorney as this will halt the foreclosure and allow you some time to decide whether there are any alternatives that you can look into.

Automobile Debt
Quote: Inflation is when you pay fifteen dollars for the ten-dollar haircut you used to get for five dollars when you had hair. - Sam Ewing Along with credit cards automobile debt is one area that gets a lot of people in financial strife. Most people don't realize that one of the most profitable parts of the car dealership business is in the financing of the motor vehicles. There is often more money to be made from the financing than from the sale of the vehicle itself. And guess who pays for it? You do! And you pay considerably more for it than you would from many other types of borrowing. You are probably paying interest on not only the purchase of the vehicle but also the insurance, the warranty and any other additional items that the dealer talked you into at the point of sale. This makes for a very expensive vehicle and before many people know it they find themselves in difficulty making the monthly payments. So how do you get out of the situation?

For More Information Debt Consolidation http://www.ultimatedebtguide.com
You need to consider what alternatives you have to reduce your automotive debt and that might mean selling your expensive motor vehicle and getting something a little more realistic considering the situation you are in. Cars are very often an emotional buy, where the impression that your new vehicle might have on friends, family and neighbors might influence your decision into buying a more expensive vehicle by borrowing more. You need to look at it a bit more realistically and consider what you have to deal with on a daily basis trying to make ends meet due to your car payments and then look for a better alternative. If you can manage with one car rather than two, then offload one and use the money from that to reduce debt. If you can get rid of your expensive vehicle that you have financed and have sufficient funds to pay cash outright for a lower grade vehicle, provided of course that it is reliable, then that would be a wise move and have a huge impact on your monthly budget. It could also be the fast track you need to get back into a better vehicle sooner without all the debt.

Keeping a Place to Live
Quote: A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don't need it. - Bob Hope It can be very frightening to get an eviction notice or to find that the bank is going to foreclose on your house mortgage. Having a roof over your head is one of the essential requirements that you expect to have for you and your family and to see that security disappearing due to your inability to pay your debts is one of the worst things you could imagine. No matter how well you get on with your landlord you have to understand that at the end of the day it is purely a business arrangement for him and money is all that really matters. It might be that the landlord is also working on a tight budget and needs your weekly payments to pay for his debts.

For More Information Debt Consolidation http://www.ultimatedebtguide.com
The first thing to do is to pay the past due amount as soon as possible. If this is not possible then work through your budget and see how you can make payments to reduce the amount as soon as you can. Once you have some figures approach your landlord and discuss your situation fully and present your plan to eliminate the debt. The peace of mind that you give your landlord for doing this might be all that is needed to avoid an eviction. In some situations you might even be eligible to qualify for government assistance or you could possibly get help through a church group that you belong to. You need to start asking around to find out what all your options are and the sooner you do that the better. You might even be able to negotiate with your landlord for a reduced rate for a specific period of time to get back on your feet with the assurance that you will pay the deficit at a date that you both agree on. Failing that you might need to cancel your lease or sub lease the accommodation to someone else while you find cheaper residence elsewhere. Getting a roommate is another alternative that will help to share the expense. You need to do all you can to avoid eviction as quite apart from the inconvenience of the eviction you will find it more difficult to find new accommodation with reference to your eviction on your credit report.

You might have to pay a larger than normal bond on any new rental accommodation due to your poor history.

Medical Bills
Quote: Business is the art of extracting money from another man's pocket without resorting to violence. - Max Amsterdam
As one of the leading forms of consumer bankruptcy medical debt is a major problem that many people had to contend with. Even if you have health insurance there are quite often additional expenses when medical care is needed that can amount to quite a large sum of money. Unfortunately for those people who are already having difficulty in paying excessive debt, they quite often have to stop paying medical insurance to cover their other financial needs. Without health coverage medical bills can build up to such an extent that there is never any likelihood of a person being able to afford to pay them. It is easy to see why so many people are made bankrupt due to their medical debt.

For More Information Debt Consolidation http://www.ultimatedebtguide.com
Unfortunately the medical practitioners are getting tougher on having this debt paid and resort to all means available to them for the recovery of their money. This can mean you will be getting a visit from a debt collector to recover the funds or the medical practitioner might decide to sue you for the money in which case your assets can be seized and your bank accounts frozen. There are also becoming many more instances where people are refused medical attention simply because they haven't paid the past due debt and only cash upfront payments will see that they get the medical attention that is needed. This is even happening to people who have been having ongoing medical care by a practitioner and have been unable to pay the full amount of that care to date. Even care for serious health problems has been refused due to monies owing. Where possible you should always try to keep some form of health insurance cover and when needed ensure that they pay for everything that they should. Review the expenses that are charged to you and be sure that they are correct before paying as it is common for errors to be made that can be extremely costly particularly when you're already having difficulty making ends meet.

There are some options available where you can get medical discounts and if so make the most of these and get all you can. These apply particularly to people on low income and those who don't have any form of health insurance. Consider getting Medicaid which is available in most states to help cover any future medical expenses and also help to pay medical bills up to three months old. Ask if you can set up an installment plan to pay off your past due medical bill to allow you to continue to receive medical care from your practitioner. Always look at all the options that you might consider available to maintain proper health care.

Child Support
Quote: Always borrow money from a pessimist, he doesn't expect to be paid back. - Anonymous Child support is a high priority debt that you must pay no matter how difficult your financial position might appear to be. There are a number of reasons why you need to make child support payments top priority. Quite apart from the fact that your children shouldn't have to suffer for your financial dilemma and the necessity for you to provide them with the necessary support to ensure their welfare is looked after, you also need to be aware of the consequences of not paying child support. Any child support court order that was written or modified after the 31st of December 1993 will automatically be deducted from your wages if you are employed. If you are self-employed or unemployed you are still legally required to make the necessary payments.

For More Information Debt Consolidation http://www.ultimatedebtguide.com
Your failure to do so against you including getting issued with a circumstances you can payments. can result in various different actions being taken debt collectors coming to retrieve the necessary funds, court order to recover the outstanding money or in some be put in jail until you make your past due child support

You can see now why Child support is a high priority debt that needs to be paid before many other debts. There are State Departments that have wide reaching powers to collect the past due money.

If you can't pay this money then contact them as soon as possible and work out an arrangement where you can pay off the outstanding amount by installments and then include this into your budget and prioritize it accordingly. There are so many other areas that are affected by non-payment of child support that can impact on your ability to clear the rest of your debt including the sale of your assets to cover the cost and liens on your assets to stop you borrowing against them to clear debt. Once your past due amount exceeds $1000 the debt will be reported to the credit reporting agencies and anyone who accesses your credit reports such as creditors, insurance companies, landlords and so on will see that you have fallen behind in your payments and this certainly doesn't help your cause when trying to sort out your debt problems. Make it your priority and make your life easier in the process.

Paying Overdue Taxes
Quote: If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it. - Anonymous
It is top priority to pay all your overdue taxes as soon as possible due to the compounding problems that occur. With penalties and interest on overdue taxes it doesn't take long for the total to mount up where you will be paying more for those than the original amount outstanding. Federal taxes are one of your most important debts to clear as there is no one quite as ruthless at recovering debt than the IRS. They have more powers than anyone else to recover debt. They can take assets to cover the debt and that even includes your home so you don't want to be messing with the IRS.

For More Information Debt Consolidation http://www.ultimatedebtguide.com
If you know that you won't be able to pay your tax when it falls due then you will need to look at all alternatives and that might even include the necessity to use your credit card to pay your account simply because that will be an easier debt to manage than the IRS and the interest and penalties that they will impose. If you have enough equity in your home then that is another solution because the interest you will pay on your home mortgage will be a lot less that the IRS interest for late payments.

You will probably be reluctant to use your house to borrow the money, and rightly so, however in the case of federal taxes you could stand to lose your house if you didn't pay anyway. If you have already incurred penalties and interest for outstanding taxes then it is possible to come to an arrangement with the IRS where they will reduce some of these charges provided you can offer them some reasonable explanation as to why this happened. An example of this would be an illness that stopped you from working and earning enough money to make payments. Often you can arrange a payment plan with the IRS to pay off your debt and if they agree to that use your budget to work out how much you can reasonably afford to pay without getting in difficulty and defaulting. Once you get a payment plan sorted you won't want to miss any payments under any circumstances.

Student Loan Debt
Quote: Every day I get up and look through the Forbes list of the richest people in America. If I'm not there, I go to work. - Robert Orben
The percentage of people who are getting behind and defaulting on the repayments of their student loans has been steadily increasing over recent years. It can be very difficult when you finally graduate and find that you owe thousands of dollars in student loan debt and the job that you have isn't paying quite enough to cover all your living expenses and the payments required on your loan. Many students get into difficulty paying back their loans and they begin their working career with bad credit due to defaulting on their loan. You don't want this to happen and you will need to factor into your budget the repayments of the loan.

For More Information Debt Consolidation http://www.ultimatedebtguide.com
While payment is due once you graduate or stop with your education there is often a grace period of 6 to 9 months after that date, depending on the type of loan that you have. The first thing you will need to do if you are having problems paying is to determine what type of loan you have and what options are available to you. This grace period will give you time to find a job to help make the payments. With some loans you will begin to make interest payments immediately whereas others will allow you to pay the interest over the term of the repayments or at the end of the repayment of the actual loan.

This is why it is important for you to find out what type of loan you have and what options are available to you to help with your financial planning and make sure that you don't default on the loan repayments. If you do default on the loan there are various consequences that you need to be aware of. The full amount of the debt could be called up for repayment in total or it could be turned over to a debt collection agency. You could incur additional late fees and collection fees and your credit history will be damaged. There are many more areas that will impact on your life so it is wise to work through any issue with your lending advisor and do so with the assistance of the budget that you will have already prepared. They might be able to arrange a consolidation of debt that you help you pay off your loans at a lower interest rate thereby reducing your overall payments that need to be made each month.

Improving Your Credit Rating
Quote: If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments. - Earl Wilson
Once you have paid back your outstanding debts you can concentrate on rebuilding your credit rating. Although you can't do anything about the bad history that you have and the fact that previous debt problems will show on your credit report for 7 ½ years you can start to rebuild your credit and eventually have more positive information on your credit report than negative. You will do this by applying for small amounts of credit and paying them off on time all the time to start building a good credit record.

For More Information Debt Consolidation http://www.ultimatedebtguide.com
You should only start doing this once you have sorted out all your debt problems and are in a financially stable position where you know that you will be able to make all your payments on time. If there were specific reasons why you got in debt in the first place that haven't been completely resolved then it would not be wise to get this additional credit until you have that part of your life sorted. You will only get more credit after you have created an updated budget that will allow for the repayments and show that you will be able to manage the new debt repayments without undue stress.

Lending institutions will look at the positive results you have had with your credit in more recent times and this will make it easier for you to deal with them in the future. While you will be wary of getting credit cards again, and rightly so, they can be useful for rebuilding your credit. To do this you will get a card that has a relatively low interest rate and a small credit limit and you can use it to buy essential items only. You will need to pay back the full amount at the end of the month so you don't start building debt again. If you purchase and pay back within the month you won't be incurring interest charges but you will be building a better credit rating. Later you can make some bigger purchases on essential items once again and then pay them off over a period of time making sure that you always pay the minimum amount required, or better still more than the required monthly payment. After you have had your credit card operating successfully for some time and paid it off you can apply for personal loans and build your credit by paying them back in full, on time, all the time. Eventually people will be more interested in your recent good credit history and they will not focus on the problems that you had in the past.

Once You Have Control of Your Debt
Quote: Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons. - Woody Allen
It is a great feeling to get on top of your debt and know that you are able to make all your payments each month and not have to worry about debt collectors or paying for your groceries but now is not the time to stop doing the things that have helped turn your life around. You will have become accustomed to using a budget to get your life in order and take control of your money and this budgeting should continue so you can move to the next level where you have additional money that can be used for investment and adding security to your life as you age.

For More Information Budgeting http://www.homemoneyhelp.com/ebookadpage3.html
You will probably have a different outlook on life where you understand the difference between wants and needs and as you will have experienced the lows of constant financial stress you will not want to go back there in a hurry. So continuing along the proven path to financial security of reducing debt and managing the daily flow of your cash will give you a lot more freedom to build wealth now rather than focusing all your energy on reducing debt. It is a more

positive phase in your life and you will see how much the debt encroached on your lifestyle and freedom. You should have adopted an attitude whereby you will only ever spend less money than you earn and where you will never buy luxury or non essential items if you have to go into debt to get them. You will only consider debt if it is to buy an appreciating asset that will deliver you more return for your money than the amount you are paying in interest. This new attitude will also include better time management skills and that in turn will give you more time to do the things that you like. While those times of excessive debt are extremely hard to handle the process of reversing your monetary situation is an education that will set you up for better things in the future.

Ignoring Your Debts
Quote: Budget: a mathematical confirmation of your suspicions. - A.A. Latimer
Ignoring your debts won't make them go away. As much as you would like to think of something else you cannot address the situation without facing it. If you put your head in the sand then someone is going to come along sooner rather than later and give you a big kick in the butt and it's going to hurt because you won't see it coming. That kick will come from a creditor who you haven't contacted to work out an arrangement for payment of an outstanding debt or possibly even the bank with a notification of a pending foreclosure on your house.

For More Information Life Without Debt http://www.extremegetoutofdebt.com
You might find yourself getting a notice of eviction simply because you didn't contact your landlord to make a payment arrangement while you get your finances sorted. You need to face the facts that you have a problem and then set yourself goals to resolving the problem. Problems that are left usually present themselves as bigger problems a short way down the line so today is the day that you need to start looking at your debts.

Taking action now can result in savings of interest and late payment fees. People who have money generally pay less than those who don't because they are able to pay debt on time and don't have to fund the additional expense of late payments in one form or another. There is one thing that is certain and that is the fact that people who owe money might forget what they owe but those who are owed always know how much is due, so you might prefer to forget but your creditors won't. Also - more often than not a creditor will adopt a far more positive attitude towards you if you explain the situation you are in and let them know that you are currently working towards full and final payment of the debt as soon as possible. Communication can do wonders for your debt reduction program.

Missing Your Car Payments
Quote: I'm so poor I can't even pay attention. - Ron Kittle Missing your car payments can create all sorts of problems in many different areas. As most of us rely on a car to get us to work it is essential to make sure you have enough money set aside to make the payments and if your budget shows that this is placing too much of a strain on your finances then you might need to downgrade to something more affordable. Finance companies are legally entitled to repossess your car without getting a court order if you miss your payments and they can do so without warning. When this happens the repossession will be noted on your credit records and will remain there for the next seven and a half years so this is one area of your spending where you will need to make the appropriate decisions in advance of anything happening.

For More Information Creditors and Debt Collection http://www.eliminationsecrets.com
Once your car has been repossessed the finance company will generally advertise it for auction to help recover the outstanding amount of the loan. Unfortunately for you the problem of debt doesn't stop there. If the vehicle is sold for less than the amount still owing on it, plus the costs involved in repossession and selling the vehicle, then you will be liable to repay that deficit to the finance company.

So you will have lost the use of your car which will impact on your ability to get to work and earn a living and you are still lumbered with the debt that will need to be repaid to the finance company. If you are struggling to make the payments it is better to contact the finance company in advance of any action to see whether you can refinance the vehicle over a longer period where the repayments will be a little less and more manageable. They might also give you the opportunity to pay off any outstanding debt by coming to a suitable arrangement. This could give you enough time to sell the vehicle paying off the loan and finding something that is more suitable for your current financial position.

Trying to Get by Without a Budget
Quote: If you make money your god, it will plague you like the devil. - Henry Fielding Don't even try to get by without a budget as you will be setting yourself up for failure. It's as simple as that. Without a budget you can't hope to have control over your finances as most people will find that once they start doing a budget they realize all the additional expenditure they have in their life that they hadn't noticed in the past. It is the little bits and pieces of expenditure that accumulate into a bigger debt problem. Creating a budget is one of the first things that you should do and using that budget daily will keep you on track to getting out of debt.

For More Information Budgeting http://www.homemoneyhelp.com/ebookadpage3.html
If someone were to ask you right now to write down exactly how much it costs you to live day to day, week to week, and month to month -- could you do it?

If you are honest you would probably have to admit that it would take quite some time as you would have to look through your card statements, monthly bills, shopping lists and more to get a clear picture of what money you are spending. In addition to that you would need to look at any expenses that occur at irregular intervals either quarterly or once yearly. You would also need to make allowances for additional spending during the festive season and the extra interest you would need to pay on the credit card debt that you would drum up over that period. On top of that you would need to make allowances for maintenance on your vehicles and household maintenance. The more you look into the expenditure the more that will be revealed and that is why a budget is so important. Most people get a big shock when they prepare a budget for the first time as they never realize how much money they spend on things that they don't think about. And that is why you must have a budget. There is no suitable alternative. You can't run a business at its best without a budget and you can't run a household without one either.

Credits Cards
Quote: It frees you from doing things you dislike. Since I dislike doing nearly everything, money is handy. - Groucho Marx No doubt if you have got financial problems then you have already got credit cards that are probably maxed out to the limit and costing you big bucks in interest each month. Credit cards have got more people into financial difficulty than anything else and the banks are only too willing to give out more cards and increase credit limits encouraging people to spend more and more money. So what can you do about your credit cards? Well if you are managing to make minimum payments each month the first step is to cut them up and not use them any more because that puts a hold on that source of spending and immediately brings into effect some control over your finances.

For More Information Life Without Debt http://www.extremegetoutofdebt.com
You should certainly stop using your credit cards but you might need to keep them intact in the interim if you have debt where you are paying even higher interest rates than the cards, to allow you to juggle your money around so you're paying off your high interest debts first.

You might be in a situation where your credit cards don't have the highest interest rates of all your debts so rather than paying them off target the other debt before your credit cards. You should look at consolidating your debts and paying off your credit cards with one loan of a lower interest rate. This will not only stop you from buying things on the card but the savings on interest can go towards debt reduction. Credit cards make it all too easy for people with bad habits to slip up and fall back on those bad habits by buying things that they think they need just because they want them. Don't fall into that trap and if you feel that you might then make sure the cards are rendered useless so you can't use them. Consider how good your life would be now if you had no credit card debt and no need to pay installments each and every month. Surely that's enough to make you want to cut them up right now and never use them again.

Borrowing Against Your House
Quote: We live by the Golden Rule. Those who have the gold make the rules. - Buzzie Bavasi There are pro's and con's for borrowing against your home and they all need to be taken into consideration before you proceed with any additional borrowing. On the one hand the money you can borrow on your home will be of a lower interest rate than most other forms of loans and this can help you to reduce your monthly repayments by using the house money for clearing more expensive debt. With the ability to spread the term of repayment over a much longer period you can generally make quite an impact on reducing your monthly outgoings.

For More Information Life Without Debt http://www.extremegetoutofdebt.com
Use your budget to determine how much you are paying on all your outstanding debt and then calculate what the payments would be if they were all consolidated under the one loan against your house. This will show whether that is the best decision to make to help you manage your finances more easily. Where house prices are rising, you will have increasing equity in the home that will allow you to borrow more against it since the time you originally arranged your mortgage. The downside of borrowing against your home is where you are already struggling to make your home mortgage payments and by borrowing more you will be putting your house on the line and risk losing it. You certainly don't want the banks to

foreclose on your loan and if that looks eminent then it would be unwise to increase your borrowings. If you calculate that you will not be able to make the additional mortgage payments then it is better to sell off other items that you have borrowed against to reduce debt elsewhere rather than risk losing your home. It might also be necessary to consider downsizing on your home and buying something of a lower value so you can reduce your mortgage accordingly until you get your feet back on the ground. Your home is your most valuable asset and you should always do all you possibly can to retain ownership of it.

High Risk Loans
Quote: There are several ways in which to apportion the family income, all of them unsatisfactory. - Robert Benchley
It is often tempting to get a loan from a non-traditional lender such as a bank or a reputable finance company when you are having trouble paying off your debts. Usually these lenders will use your house, car or other assets as collateral. They will 'sell' their service to you as a solution to help get out of debt whereas the reality of the situation when dealing with such lending institutions is the fact that you are more likely to get into even more financial strife and lose the assets that have been put up as collateral for the loan.

For More Information Creditors and Debt Collection http://www.eliminationsecrets.com
If you look closely at the terms of the contract with such loans you will find that you will be paying excessive interest payments and that is precisely what you should be trying to avoid as the big interest loans are what gets most people in trouble in the first place. A lot of these finance companies work on the basis that they know you will eventually fall behind in your payments and they structure their business where they will repossess your assets to cover the past due monies. High risk loans should never be an option worth considering simply because there is no benefit to be gained at all from getting such a loan and they only appeal to those people who are in desperate situations who can never make good the payments anyway.

More often than not the interest that you will be paying over the term of a high risk loan is almost as much as the original amount borrowed. Even if the loan is only for a short term you will be paying excessive interest rates and there is always a better alternative even if you need to come to an arrangement with other people you have borrowed money from to pay off outstanding debt over an extended period.

Borrowing from Friends and Family
Quote: Wealth - any income that is at least one hundred dollars more a year than the income of one's wife's sister's husband. - H.L. Mencken
There are many factors that you need to consider before borrowing from friends and family. First and foremost you need to discuss, with whoever you are borrowing from, your financial situation so they can make a decision whether or not to lend you money based on whether they are comfortable that you can repay them. There is no quicker way to lose friends or cause family strife than to get in a situation where you have borrowed money from them and cannot pay it back when they need it.

For More Information Life Without Debt http://www.extremegetoutofdebt.com
It is also recommended that you only borrow money from people who have excess funds that they have invested elsewhere and where you can pay them interest for the use of those funds so that they aren't losing out on the deal. In situations like this you will be able to borrow money at a lower rate than you could get from any of the financial lending institutions and the person lending you the money could also get a better return than they would get by investing their money in those same institutions or at the bank. So it is quite possible it could be beneficial to both parties in the deal but once again I need to stress the importance of total disclosure of your financial position as they need to know that to determine whether they are happy that you are a safe investment or not.

Friends or family should not feel obliged to lend you money no matter how bad your financial position is because it could put them in a similar situation. It is better fair you to leave the risk with financial lending institutions if you have any doubts whatsoever of paying back the money borrowed from those close to you. Some people are only too willing to take advantage of the opportunity to earn a little more interest and if that's the case then well and good - they have decided that you are a worthwhile investment. Let them have a look at all your books and your budget and possibly even get them to help you work through your budget and to sort out a plan of repayment for their loan to you.

Handling the Stress
Quote: When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old I know that it is. - Oscar Wilde
There's no doubt about the fact that being in financial difficulty is one of the most stressful things that you will need to handle in your life. How you handle the stress will determine how well you come out of your financial problems and more often than not how quickly you can turn your life around so that your debts are paid and you don't need to deal with money problems on that scale again. Stress can cause all sorts of problems and in the extreme it can cause you to become depressed and not be able to go about your everyday tasks including your employment that will help you to get out of your financial problems.

For More Information Life Without Debt http://www.extremegetoutofdebt.com
People all handle stress in different ways but there are certain things that you can do that will ensure your stress levels will be lowered and they don't even need to cost you any money. Simply taking a bit of time out for a walk or some form of exercise will go a long way to relieving stress. Yoga is probably one of the best forms of exercise to relieve stress and you don't even need to go to classes to do yoga. You can even get books and DVDs from the local library that will give you enough basic exercises to do to ensure that you maintain a better balance in your life. Your energy levels are liable to increase which will help you to handle more throughout the day and in doing so get to your goals sooner. Simply having a little quiet time to yourself and reading a novel can be enough to give your mind the rest from the constant worry of the debts, creditors and juggling the money to make ends meet.

Many financial advisers even make a small allowance in the budget to allow for a reality check to help you remember there is more to life than just worrying about money and on occasion you can spend a few extra dollars on something that will reward you for the efforts in tackling your debt problem.

Letting Others Know of Your Situation
Quote: The economy depends about as much on economists as the weather does on weather forecasters. - Jean-Paul Kauffmann
Quite often it is better to let others know of your situation and while you might feel somewhat embarrassed to tell friends and family that you've fallen into financial difficulty you might be quite surprised to know that many of them have been in a similar situation in the past or are currently in the same situation as you. If anything you might be helping them to address their financial problems at the same time.

It often takes a lot of the pressure off when people know that you don't have the money to spend and it allows you to adjust your lifestyle accordingly to help cope with the situation. Often friends and family will be only too willing to help in many different ways whether it be, by offering you the opportunity to do more work to earn more income or to help you make better decisions with your budget and other aspects of your finance to help you get back on track. Sometimes it is good to have somebody to talk to who you can trust to relieve some of the tension of having to deal with the situation on your own.

Putting Things into Perspective
Quote: I am having an out of money experience. - Anonymous
Sometimes the overwhelming size of your debt and the fact that it has gone on for so long makes it difficult for you to put things into perspective and handle the situation in a manner that is as stress free as possible and will result in an optimum solution. Now consider this for one moment because it affects a lot of people who are in dire financial straits -- your health and well-being are more important than any problems that you have with finance at the moment.

For More Information Budgeting http://www.homemoneyhelp.com/ebookadpage3.html
That and the well-being of those you are responsible for, particularly if you have young children is your number one concern. If you make sure that that part of your life is being handled in the best manner possible, and only after that has been attended will you be able to start making moves towards sorting out your financial position. Some of the richest people in the world have been bankrupt at some stage in their life and while hopefully that will be something that you never have to deal with, it is sometimes worthwhile just considering what is the worst scenario that could happen to you as far as your finances go. Once you have dealt with that you will be able to put everything else in your life into perspective and will help you to deal with the situation at hand in a more orderly and businesslike manner where emotions aren't going to hinder your chance of reaching your goal of financial freedom. Too many people have let financial problems get out of perspective in their life and cause them to do things that they will regret for the rest of their life. It is not necessary and it is certainly not wise no matter how bad the situation might seem at the moment to let money ruin your life.

There is always an answer and to some people the path to recovery is just a little longer than others but provided you are moving in the right direction you will certainly get there one day.

Habits and How You Got There
Quote: Money isn't the most important thing in life, but it's reasonably close to oxygen on the "gotta have it" scale. - Zig Ziglar
The situations we find ourselves in and in particular where this involves financial difficulty are often caused by the habits that we have. Humans are habitual beings and most actions in our life are caused by the habits that we have adopted which are very often difficult to break. None more so than habitual spending on the wrong things or the things that we don't need but feel we want. This is going to take a bit of work on your part to have an honest look at the way that you spend money and see if there are any habits that are attached to your spending that caused you to get in your current financial strife. This might be as simple as having the desire to have the latest fashion clothing at all times or to be seen in a brand new car.

For More Information Budgeting http://www.homemoneyhelp.com/ebookadpage3.html
It could be that you prefer to eat out all the time rather than cook your own meals at home because that is something that you've always done. There could be any number of habits that are causing you to spend money were you shouldn't. What is causing you to spend money when you should be saving? What is causing you to go into debt and the stress that goes with it for the sake of having what everybody else has or what currently happens to be trendy? You could just be in the habit of buying the wrong food every time you go shopping simply because you don't have a shopping list written in advance where you know exactly what you should be buying and sticking to that list rather than buying whatever takes your fancy.

Sit down with a pen and paper and write down the areas where you think habits are affecting your life and your decisions with the handling of your finances. Most people if they are honest will be able to come up with a reasonably long list of things that are affecting their decisions in life and once these are revealed you can go about changing them and thereby changing your whole lifestyle where you understand the importance of the balance that will bring about health, happiness and financial well-being.

The Future
Quote: Money will buy you a pretty good dog, but it won't buy the wag of his tail. - Henry Wheeler Shaw
What will the future hold for you once you get over your debt and finally become financially free of the burden that has stressed you for so long and stopped you from sleeping at night? With your debt cleared, and excess funds available each month over and above your expenditure, you need to consider the best way of handling this additional money. What you don't want to do is to get back into the situation you were before where you start spending on things that you don't need and building your debt back up again.

For More Information Debt Consolidation http://www.ultimatedebtguide.com
Just consider how much better your life is without the debt and compare that to the time when you were always stressed out and finances were on your mind day night. Then ask yourself was it worth it and do you want to go back there. Most people will admit that it is unpleasant to be weighed down with the stress of overwhelming debt and by having followed the process that reduced and then eliminated your debt you can continue to use that basic model of having a budget and sticking to that budget to build up a nest egg of funds that can ensure a good quality of life as you age. You will probably have a different attitude to wants and needs and find that the quality of life doesn't depend on the material things that you own but rather the things that you do that are memorable on a day-to-day basis. You need to continue setting goals but now the goals won't be to reduce debt but rather to invest money that will create long-term wealth for your future. A future without these is the most wonderful position to be in as that gives you the freedom to do what you like when you like and that is more than most people will ever get to appreciate.

Quote: When you let money speak for you, it drowns out anything else you meant to say. - Mignon McLaughlin
While it might be hard to look at your current situation with a positive attitude there is a good opportunity for you to learn from this and ensure that it doesn't happen again. By following positive steps towards reducing your debt and understanding why you got in debt in the first place you will know precisely how it happened and what to do to avoid it happening again. You will have a better understanding of the things that you need to enjoy a happy and fulfilling life and those things that you might want but not need that can cause financial turmoil and all the stress that goes with debt levels you can't handle. You will learn how to budget and have total control over your finances and know when you can and can't buy those luxury items.

Containment of Debt
Quote: People are living longer than ever before, a phenomenon undoubtedly made necessary by the 30-year mortgage. - Doug Larson
Sometimes when you still trying build up your income to cover your outgoings it is quite difficult to keep on top of specific items of debt on a monthly basis. One such area a lot people have problems with is credit card debt with most people having several credit cards and a lot of money owing on each one. A technique that you can use while you are building up your income or eliminating other debt is to contain specific areas of debt such as your credit cards.

For More Information Budgeting http://www.homemoneyhelp.com/ebookadpage3.html
Let's say you have five credit cards and they are all almost at the limit. It's likely that payments of these will be at various different times throughout the month so with a little bit of planning you can create a situation where you have containment of your credit card debt by using a revolving payment solution. What this means is you pay off what is required for your monthly payment of one credit card and then draw out sufficient funds to pay off the monthly payment on the next card and so forth. So one card pays the next card and you are containing the debt within each of these cards are not spending any more money on the cards while using one to finance the other until you can start chipping away at the balance. All you will need to concentrate on is the actual interest portion of the debt in total of all the cards for the month. While this is not the optimum solution it might be your only alternative until you can get on top of some of your other debt so you will need to determine when you're working at your budget whether this is something that you will need to do and then you will need to work out exactly how much the interest portion will be and calculate how you're going to come up with that portion from your income. Once you have this sorted and can manage this from one month to the next you have contained that particular debt for the short term until you can address the problem. You will only do this if you have other forms of debt with the interest rates that are higher and you will want to reduce the debt on the ones with the highest interest rates first. It might even be necessary to get a low interest credit card to help you to do this.

Wants and Needs
Quote: I wish I'd said it first, and I don't even know who did: The only problems that money can solve are money problems. - Mignon McLaughlin
Now this is the area that gets most people in financial difficulty in the first place. There is a huge difference between wants and needs and if you honestly look at your financial position and consider how you have built up the debt that you are currently faced with you might just find that it is due to over expenditure on wants. Needs are those factors that are required for you to lead a healthy happy life on a daily basis to maintain good health in mind and body for you and those whom you are responsible for. Good food, shelter, health care - These come under the banner of needs because these are the simple things in life that you need to get by.

For More Information Budgeting http://www.homemoneyhelp.com/ebookadpage3.html
DVD players, alloy wheels on your car, the latest designer clothing, cigarettes etc - These are wants and there is certainly no need to have them in your life. These are the things that get people into trouble. These are the things that cause your debt and stress and detract from your lifestyle. These are the things that make people miserable at the end of the day because you still have to pay for them, you don't need them and you certainly don't need the debt that comes with them. Take a look around your house and see how many items there are that fall under the category of wants, and then ask yourself how often do you use these items and what sort of pleasure have they given you compared to the distress that you are now feeling with the debt you have to pay back. Sure there might be some items that you still get pleasure from such as playing on your Playstation but consider once again how the time that you waste on the Playstation could be better spent on something more productive or something that could improve your health and well-being such as a walk or a jog in the park. Can you convert some of those items into cash? Of course you can and if you aren't using them then wouldn't it be better to sell them and put that money towards your debt.

Just understanding the difference between wants and needs might be all that you need to turn your life around and ensure that you never become overburdened with debt again.

Your health is of the utmost importance and this is something that you need to take care of for the rest of your life and letting any aspects of health deteriorate during these times of financial turmoil could mean that you require ongoing medical expenditure for the rest of your life. When it comes to the crunch it is better to be bankrupt than sick in hospital. You can certainly turn your finances around by following the right steps and focusing on achieving your goals however if you let your health deteriorate to such an extent that you have to live with problems for the rest of your life then no amount of money you make in the future will be able to get back that good health. While you will be looking to reduce your daily spending and reduce your food bill you also need to be aware that you should only buy foods and drink that will help you maintain good health. Don't buy soda drinks when drinking water is better for you. Don't buy takeaways when cooking your own meals is healthier and less expensive. You will even save money on gas from not having to drive down the road to buy your fast food if you are cooking at home. You can save money and maintain your health and welfare and that is something that you will need to consider when you are preparing your budget. Consider the expense of becoming diabetic.

Focus and Progress
Quote: In the old days a man who saved money was a miser; nowadays he's a wonder. - Anonymous
Focus is something that not a lot of people are good at. How often do you start something and then before you are finished you're thinking about something else or changing your mind about whether you should finish or not? It is common practice with most people to do this and the result of a lack of focus is a lack of achievement. The only way you are going to progress towards your goal of eliminating your debt is to focus on the task at hand and make positive steps every day based on the plan that you are setting forth to achieve that goal.

Preparing a budget helps you to focus on your income and expenditure. For More Information Budgeting http://www.homemoneyhelp.com/ebookadpage3.html
Writing down daily tasks helps you to focus on achieving those tasks each day. Without these processes set out for you to follow it is very difficult to focus on what you need to do to get out of the situation you are an. By focusing on your goals regularly you actually change the way that you think about money and spending and this will remove the bad habits that have got you in this situation in the first place. The more that you focus and gain the progress towards your goal, the easier it will become for you to focus on more and more aspects of your life and finish things that may have been left in limbo for some time. If you are the type of person who procrastinates a lot, then try focusing on just a few smaller things to begin with and they will be the things that you write down on your to-do list each day. Those things that need immediate attention based on your budget. Start the action that is necessary to achieve the required goal and don't stop until you have finished it. Don't move on to the next item on the list until that item has been completed. This is the way to focus and it will bring you the results that you desire.

It is a lot easier than you think to become a more focused person. It is certainly a lot easier to live where you don't have the financial burden that comes about from not being focused.

Quote: A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore. - Yogi Berra
There is a big difference between wants and needs and when you are faced with excess debt then the only thing you really need to focus on are your needs and how you are going to pay for them. You don't need to own the latest wide screen television or an X-Box or PlayStation. If you've got overwhelming debt then one of the first things you need to do is start limiting luxuries.

Once you start putting these factors into perspective you can see how the purchase of luxuries that might possibly give you a few moments of pleasure have added a whole lot more stress and strain to your lifestyle and have actually limited the things that you can do on a daily basis. Wouldn't you like to trade in some of those appliances that you never use for less stress and more time to get out and enjoy yourself? Wouldn't you like to trade them in with a chance to take a short holiday away from the worry is that are constantly on your mind at the moment? Now is the best time for you to start looking at these luxuries and consider the benefits they have given you and the downside that you are living with. When in debt limit or eliminate your luxuries and those that you have and don't need - cash up and use the money to pay off some of your debt. You will be a lot happier in the long-term.

Saving Money
Quote: Do not value money for any more nor any less than its worth; it is a good servant but a bad master. - Alexandre Dumas
At some stage you will want to begin saving money to cover costs that will be occurring in the future, however until you have paid off your debt that is costing you money in interest and penalties it is not wise to save money. You need to reduce and eliminate your debt thereby cutting off the drain on your income that is required to cover the interest costs and by doing so you will be gaining a lot more benefit than trying to build up a surplus of funds in your account.

For More Information Budgeting http://www.homemoneyhelp.com/ebookadpage3.html
You will always earn less money from the interest of funds invested than it will be costing you for the interest you are paying on your debts. Because of this if you were to save money and not pay off debts it would be a backward step as it is in effect costing you the difference between the aftertax interest you could be earning on your investment money and the full amount of interest that you are paying on your debt. In addition to paying interest on your debt often you will be missing out on discounts for early payment of accounts and this is an additional 'saving' in effect that you will be losing out on by not making payments on time. The best action you can always take is to reduce debt where possible unless that debt is associated with an income earning asset or something that you will make a capital gain on over and above the expenditure that you have to make on the interest by having that debt. Once you have cleared all your debt then you can start thinking about making savings but it is not a good business decision to do that before the due time even though it might make you feel good. Eliminate your most costly debts first, the rest of your debts second and then start saving your excess funds when all else has been taken care of.

Run Your Home Like a Business
Quote: A rich man is nothing but a poor man with money. - W.C. Fields
You need to run your home like a well oiled business. That is the only way that you will be able to get what you need with the income that you are earning and resources that you have available to you without increasing your debt. A business cannot run and survive for any length of time if it constantly has to borrow more and more money to cover the costs. Eventually the business will go under and that is precisely what will happen if your home is run in such a manner.

Any successful business manager will understand that the income needs to cover the costs for the business to survive and you have to look at running your home in a manner that will help it to survive long-term and for that to happen you need to weigh up your income and expenditure and make sure that your expenditure doesn't exceed your income. If you think along the terms of your home being a business you're more likely to take a better account of the money and see where it is getting lost and where it does not need to be spent. You will be quite surprised at the amount of waste of funds in most homes and most successful business managers would be appalled at the finances of the average household. Even people who successfully run their own business often have their own home finances in a shambles simply because it is not common practice for most people to run their home as a business and constantly monitor the flow of money. By creating your own budget that sets out all the expenditure and the available income you are instantly creating a situation where your household will be able to be run in a more businesslike manner and the efficiency that you will obtain from doing this will ensure that you have more money available to cover your costs and in most cases without affecting the quality of your lifestyle at all.

Setting Goals
Quote: He is rich or poor according to what he is, not according to what he has. - Henry Ward Beecher
The quickest way to achieve your goal of reducing and eliminating your debt is to actually set some goals in the first place. Unless you have a specific goal in mind then it is all too easy to drift and not focus on the task of reducing your debt. The best way to set goals is to sit down with a pen and paper and actually write down what you want to achieve. Once it is in writing you can refer back to it and adjust your goals along the way.

Having written goals to look at is an incentive to achieve more and do better than normal. It has been shown in many tests that this is the quickest and best way for people to actually achieve their goals. You should make your goals realistic and have long term and short term goals. So when you are writing down these goals, you should determine where you want to be in a year's time or even five or 10 years time. You should also set goals that you will like to achieve in the next week or month and that might be something as minor as being able to cope with the current budget that you set yourself for your food shopping. Once you achieve a goal - even a small one - you are well on the road to success in achieving your bigger goals and as you see more and more of these goals become achievable it will build your confidence to get out of debt and to maintain that debt free status for the rest of your life. No matter how small these achievements might be you need to consider the fact that it was all those small extra items that you purchased along the way that got you into debt in the first place and reversing the trend by making small changes in a positive direction will go a long way to eliminating your debt before you realize it.
