Simple debt advice - with no up-front costs

DebtWizard's top 10 tips

Tuesday, 29th September 2009

There is nothing wrong with debt provided you can manage the repayments.

Unfortunately many of us need to have some amount of debt in order to be able to function in today’s world so here are some useful tips on how to keep those debt issues under control;

  1. Never borrow more than you can afford - obvious!
  2. Do a budget wizard; learn to live within your means.
  3. If you have a problem re-paying a loan then speak to someone sooner rather than later.
  4. Borrowing can be expensive so think very hard before you commit yourself to a loan, look at the amount per month you have to pay and check the total amount paid back of the loan, this includes interest, all admin charges and any insurance.
  5. Sometimes it’s better to ‘save to spend’ rather than ‘borrow to spend’.
  6. If you have a mortgage why not think about fixing this on a low interest rate.
  7. Borrowing money on credit cards is very expensive and review the interest rates on your existing borrowings.
  8. When you are thinking of buying something ask yourself, 'how am I going to pay for this?', 'what is the cheapest way of doing this?'
  9. Make a credit card work for you by paying the balance in full every month, that way you will not pay any additional costs but get purchase protection under the card.
  10. If you don't need it, can't afford it then don't buy it!
