How It Works
The first step to an effective budget involves tallying up all of your debts. This will help you get a clear picture of just how much you owe and how much you need to repay each month. Then, you’ll need to set a realistic budget that you can actually stick to. Lastly, you need to prioritise your debts. This means paying off the highest interest debt first, usually credit card debt. Depending on your situation, you might want to consider refinancing or another debt solution to help manage your debt repayment more effectively.
