It looks like the economy has changed and gas and food prices are going through the roof. If you are like the rest of us you can feel the pinch of rising cost and no rising income. Like the rest of us you are using your credit cards and getting into a situation where you have more debt than you once had before. Everyone likes to go out to eat or get away for a few days on vacation and the easiest way to accomplish this is to charge it. The big problem with this approach is it puts us further in debt and makes it harder to pay the minimum required by most credit card companies.

We need to decide what are we going to do to make the changes to get out of a debt situation. We must look at our financial situation and ask ourselves which is the best option so we can reduce out debt. You can do a Debt Consolidation which will allow you to take all of your credit cards and consolidate them into one loan. The benefits are you usually can get a lower interest rate than you are paying separately on all of your credit cards. Secondly it will allow you to make only one low monthly payment so you do not have to worry about keeping track of all your credit card payments.

Also if you find that your credit cards are just way out of control you can opt for a Debt Settlement where you can negotiate with the credit card company a lower amount that you can settle with them for. The benefits is you will not have to pay the full amount, the downside is it will show up on your credit report as a settlement and some lenders may frown on this.

It is important to do your homework whether you are Reducing your debt with a Debt Consolidation.
