So if you’re ready to become debt free, let’s get started!

 

1)  The very first thing you need to do is create an emergency fund of at least $1000 in a savings account.  This money is for emergencies only, not shopping trips or vacation.  Once you’ve accomplished that, start putting every extra dollar toward your debt.  Of course, you always want to pay for your basic needs first, things such as food, rent, and utilities.


2)  List all of your debt balances in order from smallest to largest. Do not worry about interest rates right now.  You want to see results as soon as possible so start by paying the smallest debt first. Pay the minimum amount necessary on all your other debt while you’re putting everything you can toward the lowest balance.

3) After you pay off the first debt, you move to focusing on paying off the next debt from your list. When you start seeing results, it will motivate you, even more, to become debt free. If you want to speed up the process of getting out of debt, you might try some other ways to earn more income. Have a yard sale or try buying some stuff at a yard sale, fix it up and resell it on eBay or Craigslist.
