How To Get Out of Debt
First important point when starting on the road to debt freedom is this. Don’t think too far in the future. It will certainly take longer getting out of debt than the way you got into it. With a little determination it can be done, and the end result is less stress and a better quality of life. What ever the reasons are that you are now drowning in debt the first step means analyzing your situation and making a sensible and workable plan to follow to get free from the debt chains. The fastest possible way to pay off your debt is by moonlighting to earn a second income. The convenience of earning money on the internet may certainly be appealing.
What the experts say.
Before even considering to start getting yourself out of debt you need grab a cup of coffee and sit down with all your latest bills in hand. They may look like a huge mountain right now but with some common sense you can conquer it. In my case I had a total of 6 credit cards between me and my wife 7 loans, 2 clothing accounts, college bills, a book account, vet account, two car hire purchase agreements, my mortgage, and a few other bits and pieces. Although I knew it was bad it really frightened me when it was on black and white. Who said things looked better when they were written down. Bah…. In any event the road to rehabilitation took a little bit of planning and after a few months I really started seeing progress. I did use the internet to make more money and through my experience have built a blog with guides tips and links on how they can do the same.

The Next steps…
Before you do anything else you need to take a hard look at how much your income is each month and then subtract exactly what you need to survive. The essentials, meaning food, mortgage payments, gas to get to your job, are things you obviously cannot do without. After you subtract all of this you will be left with disposable income.
Now you should consider disposable income as money for entertainment, luxuries, and dinners out, fast food and so on. Cutting back on these and rather servicing debt is a real sensible beginning. This is the road I took and it was pretty miserable but I kept in the back of my mind the long term goals to keep me motivated.
Your debt situation probably looks a whole lot worse than what you think right now. You sit with three amounts, your total debt, total income, and money for extras. Now you have to work out a plan of action and the day you are going to start implementing it. Get together with the family and discuss different scenarios of working through everything. As a team you will see that everything will work out.
