How to Get out of Credit Card Debt?

Back to questions list

Every second American fell into the debt trap. Still, getting out the debt is possible, even though it’s quite complicated and requires a thorough self-control. The first thing you should do is to forget about the existence of your credit card. You can cut them or throw them out – you must somehow get rid of the dependence of the credit card.

After that, you must learn to manage your income and expenses and connect them with your debts. Pay attention to the credit cards with higher interest but try to pay off payments of every credit card each month, even though the payments aren’t substantial.
