Clear your Debt, something we would all like to do. Debt is something that hangs around, like the bad apple at a party who just doesn’t know when to leave.
Debt is annoying, something that just won’t go away unless you tackle the problem head on. This can seem daunting at first, but you soon get used to it.
If you don’t know already, I too am in Debt. Quite a lot of it in fact and one of the reasons I started this blog was to keep track of my debt repayment progress. You can read more about that on this blog.
If you are just starting out in tackling your debt problem, then you need a plan. How are you going to get out of debt? Do you even know how much money you owe to all your creditors? Without a plan, and the information you need to start sorting out your debt problems, you are not going to get anywhere.
What if your Debt is too much to handle?
If you are really worried about your debt, or you just can’t handle the pressure then you can get help. If you are in the UK you can contact several organisations in confidence and without charge. I will list these at the end of this post. They can offer advice and a solution to your problems. They are worth contacting if you are struggling.
There is usually always a solution to a debt problem, no matter how bad that debt problem is. You just need to accept the situation you are in and start working out how to get out of it, or get help.
The longer you leave things, the worse they can get. Act now and start putting the issue behind you.
Sorting out your Debt
In the UK there are a few ways you can deal with your debt problems. Some of these methods are listed below: –
- A Debt Management Plan.
- An Individual Voluntary Arrangement.
There are other methods available to you as well depending on your own financial circumstances. Currently my chosen method to tackle my debts is a Debt Management Plan that I administer myself. It is not easy to keep on top of things but I am doing OK so far.
It has certainly helped with keeping making sure I am making payments and reducing how much I owe. The main thing is getting back on top of things and stopping the phone calls and letters.
All of the above options will have an impact on your Credit Rating so you need to think carefully about how you wish to proceed.
