It is not uncommon for people these days to have money problems, or more to the point, debt problems. Or if you want to become even more specific, in this day and age, it’s not uncommon to find that many people have credit card debt problems. This seems to be the latest fad of the century – you get a credit card, you buy, buy, buy; then you pay off only the bare minimum on your credit card account at the end of the month, and repeat the process all over again.
Which, if you will but take a step back and look at it logically, is only going to lead to disaster upon disaster happening to hapless you who is unable to pay off your credit card, and which will ultimately, lead you to have credit card debt problems.
This unfortunately, is the type of life we lead these days, and something that we just can’t seem to get out of. Most of us spend more per month than we have available to us, and then try to struggle and keep up with payments to pay off the excesses of last month.
Credit card debt problems are very easy to fall into, and many of us do this almost without thinking about it. We go out, we see something we want, and hey presto! because of our credit card being with us at all times, we are able to give in to our desires and buy what we want, when we want, without a thought to the consequences.
The trick to getting out of all your credit card problems and staying out of them, is to first realise where you are going wrong. Once you have pinpointed the fact that you are actually spending more than you earn, or more than you can afford to dish out for a month, you can then go about trying to set things to rights. And the best way to do this, is to start by leaving your credit cards at home; or, if you find that this is a problem for you, then have your credit limit capped.
This is the only way to get out of any existing credit card debt problems which you might have – leave the cards at home or cap your limit until you can pay off that debt you have accumulated. In this way, you will be able to diminish your existing credit card debt problems without adding to them! And once you have accomplished this, you can then set about making sure that you don’t do the same thing again by leaving your credit cards at home.
