Credit Card Debt Management, How to Avoid the Credit Crunch


Visitors: 184

Credit Card Debt Management

Gas prices are through the roof, home heating bills may double by next winter- even food is costing Americans more than ever before.   Many of us have resorted to using our charge cards, not just for big ticket items like flat screen televisions and vacations; but to cover the expenses of everyday living.   While living on credit seems like the only option in the short term, in the long run it can be disastrous. Especially in light of uncertain economic future.

Avoiding the Credit Crunch

The idea is to avoid the “credit crunch" long before it happens, years perhaps, with forward thinking budget practices and sound financial planning.

"The best thing one can do for their financial well being and peace of mind is to formulate a working household budget and stick to it.   Unfortunately most of us don't do this, and miss out a very effective way of creating a financial cushion" Mr. Hawley of National Debt Counseling Corp. observes.   “If we sit down and actually go over all of our income and expenses when we are still okay financially, and honestly take a look at certain expenses that we can cut out of our monthly expenditure, we will be able to set aside some money that we can use for a rainy day. "

Credit Cards have their Place

Many corporate executives use credit cards to track expenditure to simplify receipt submissions. However, many people look at credit cards as not spending the money or never having to pay them back. You need a sound financial backbone to manage credit cards or they quickly become high interest bearing burdens that lead to debt and eventually a credit crunch.
