What to Do About Credit Card Debt: 5 Easy Steps


What would you do to get rid of all your credit card debt right now? That’s what researchers at mortgage servicer Mr. Cooper (formerly Nationstar) asked a group of 1,054 cardholders with more than $500 in credit card debt. Their answer: A lot. According to that survey, about a third of cardholders said they’d be willing to give up their favorite food or access to all social media for a year. Eight percent said they’d move to Antarctica for two years. And seven percent said they’d be willing to give up a kidney, just to get rid of their credit card debt. Of course, outside of winning the lottery, there’s no “quick fix” when it comes to getting rid of credit card debt. But if you’re overwhelmed by debt, there are credit card debt solutions that can help you get started down the right path - right now - so you can start feeling positive about your financial future again. Here are 5 simple things you can do:

Take control.

Stop hiding from your debt - own it. Yes, it can be uncomfortable to take an inventory of all your debts and to learn how much you really owe. But gathering up all your most recent statements - even the statements you’ve squirreled away under that pile of unopened mail on your counter - is the first critical step in getting debt free. After all, you have to know where you are now in order to chart a clear path to a debt-free future.

Know your monthly payments

Make a list of your monthly payments for each debt, as well as any late fees and past-due amounts.

Create a budget

Write out a quick budget. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy for now - just know your net income (how much you bring in each month) and your major bills, like rent or mortgage, utilities, cell phone and so on.

Speak with a debt counselor.
