helps identify exactly where your money comes from, and where it goes. This will
help you identify areas for improvement and savings.
How Does Budgeting Relate to Debt Consolidation and Debt Relief?
When you're considering debt consolidation,
an important first step is reviewing all your income and expenses. Once you have
your entire budget laid out, you'll begin to find items that can be reduced or eliminated.
This helps you find more money to put towards your monthly payments which will help
get you out of debt in less time.
"When I first started to apply extra money towards my debt relief plan, I did it
in small amounts. However, when I started seeing that just $25 more a month was
taking months off of my estimated completion time - and decreased the interest I
was going to have to pay - I got excited! I started challenging myself to find more
ways to cut money so that I could apply more money to resolving my debt."
- Monica D., CareOne graduate.
