Do you know your debts make other people rich?

You are borrowing from the bank, and not to mention, your future self, who’ll be less well off, less risk-free, or lead a less ample life because you need money now before you decide to afford your big expenses.

You have to pay off your debt or at least get National Debt Help. You cannot save while you are in financial trouble; it grows like cannabis. So, you better kill it!

Steer clear of debt like the plague

The only beneficial debts are debts taken on for investment. In individual finance terms, that means an inexpensive mortgage loan to buy a property or home for the long-term.

  • Everyone knows what bad debts look like:
  • Extra clothing stacked up on store cards.
  • A loan taken out to invest in your holiday.
  • Flashing the plastic to keep up with your buddies.
  • The last 7 days of every month’s expenditures being put on a bank card and never actually paid back.
  • Varied pointless things purchased on the ‘never never’ as our grandma and grandpa prudently called what we call credit.

Non-mortgage debt – bad debt – – will certainly make you very poor if you are not prospering already, and it’ll keep you from becoming rich.

Too severe, you say? All of us have debt – undoubtedly hundreds of thousands can’t be completely wrong?

I don’t agree. The buzz of debts is down to:

  • Psychological marketing and advertising by companies to encourage us that we should have things we never knew we wanted and most probably don’t.
  • Psychological marketing and advertising by financial companies, who tell us we can get something we need – now.
  • People being too excited these days to save for anything.

Actually, I know this sounds antiquated, but we have to learn some ancient ways of thinking. In financial terms, borrowing to eat makes no sense if you ask me whatever economic experts tell you about levelling ‘consumption over a lifetime’ or similar wealth-sapping bull crap.

Debts can make everything a lot more expensive. Although you are paying off bad debts, you are not investing and saving. Financial debt saps your time and efforts to earn more money.

The Gospel Truth About Debt: Don’t Take It.

My prediction is when you have got the cash in your bank, you will not desire to spend a lot on pointless gizmos and gadgets.

The final tips:

  • Chop up all your credit cards to steer clear of getting new financial debt.
  • Concentrate on the debt on your card with the highest interest rate first.
  • Try to get more cash: Sell unnecessary things, do more, go busking.
  • Pay as much as you possibly can every month to pay off the credit card.
  • Start working on your next credit card, and clear that.

Think about shuffling credit card debt onto 0% interest credit cards only if you are confident you will keep up with your monthly payments. Steer clear of falling for any debt consolidation scams!
