2 Keys to Managing Credit Card Debt

2 Keys to Managing Credit Card Debt

One of the best ways to establish a good credit score is with credit cards.  And, when it comes to managing a new credit card, there are two key habits to keep in mind:

 

number one  Include Your Credit Card in the Monthly Household Budget

Identify all major, monthly household expenses and calculate your budget available for paying at least the minimum balance owed to your new card.  Use our budgeting tool to get started.

 

 

number two  Tackle Higher Interest First

When you own more than one credit card, change the approach to your budgeting technique.  Understanding your credit balances and the interest rates with each of your cards is key to paying off higher-interest rate debt first.
