New Year's Resolution: Getting Out of Debt in 2017

 Wouldn’t it be nice if all of your debt from 2016 would just disappear? Unfortunately, we cannot wave a wand and magically get out of debt that easily. Debt can become even more daunting if you are attempting to pay down your debt on a small budget. No matter how much available funds you have. AmeriCash Loans has a few tips to help you get out of debt in 2017.

Set a Payment Plan

Planning will go a long way in reducing your financial stress, and is a perfect way to understand where you stand. Start the process by evaluating how many lenders you owe. You can then evaluate which debt bucket you should pay first. The amount owed and interest rate should be the driving factors in which you choose to pay off first. Now that you have an understanding of exactly who you owe and how much you owe, it’s important to figure out the total amount you can afford to pay per month. Setting a monthly payment planno matter how little it iswill go a long way in your pursuit of being debt-free.

Setup Auto Pay

If you find yourself making excuses like: I will make payment next month, it is time to take advantage of the automated payment option that many lenders offer. This will allow you to have scheduled payments taken out of your account. Setting autopay will make it easy to pay your debt without having to remember to actively make your payments.

Monitor Spending Habits

In most cases, bad spending is the root cause of accruing debt. In order to understand where all of your money is going you should take a step back and categorize your spending over the past year. To do this, you will need to classify your major expenses such as food, clothing, rent and entertainment. Categorizing your spending will allow you to cut costs and avoid overspending on unneeded items in 2017.

A good tool that can reduce financial pressure and give you some extra cash is an installment loan. AmeriCash Loans makes getting installment loans of up to $4,000 easy. Apply online or at an AmeriCash location in South Carolina, Wisconsin, Illinois and Missouri.
