How to Win the Credit Card Debt Fight

How to Win the Credit Card Debt Fight

By TheBudgetnista -  Tags: , , ,

Okay, time to rip the band-aid off a very uncomfortable topic: DEBT. 

Ever had this feeling?

You go to the mailbox and quickly sift through the contents. Behind a pile of junk mail, you see that monthly credit card statement from your credit card company and immediately experience heart palpitations. Whew!

Trust me, I know the feeling. At one point, I had $300,000 in debt and student loans (more on that in this video). 

I sure wish I had known about the good folks over at for smart, free guidance on my credit card/student loan mess.

To keep it simple, debt is when you owe money to another person (agency, organization… etc.)

Debt is tricky…

On one hand, taking on debt is necessary (for those of us non-Rockefellers) when it’s time to buy a home… to pay for education… or when purchasing a vehicle. On the other hand, the weight and pressure of owing someone is oh… so... unpleasant. 

Especially when it’s something like credit card debt... and you get to thinking about all the things you shouldn’t have swiped your card for in the first place.

Yup, debt and stress go hand-in-hand. According to an American Psychological Association study, 72% of Americans said they felt stressed about money. Twenty-two percent of the participants noted “extreme stress.” 

Remember those heart palpitations? You aren’t alone.

Debt 411

Speaking of not being alone… you also aren’t the only one who may owe “dem people”. 

According to the New York Federal Reserve, consumer debt was approaching $14-trillion after the second quarter of 2019. (And that’s pre-Rona!) 

There are several types of consumer debt in the United States, including: home, auto, student, and credit card. 

And, with credit cards -the average holder has at least four cards… with up to 40% of us unable to pay more than the minimum on them. Yikes!

Why the freak-out?

FUN FACT: Credit card debt is one of the most expensive types of debt because it has higher interest rates than most other debt. 

The Federal Reserve reported (February 2020) that the average interest rate on credit cards ranged from a scary 16.61%, all the way up to a frightening 30%. 

This means that you end up paying MUCH more than you borrowed, which puts you in even more debt. *can’t win*

It’s sneaky too. 

People easily fall into credit card debt because they have the opportunity to open numerous credit card accounts with varying terms and credit limits. 

Problems really start to somersault when credit card balances creep up to where you can’t afford to pay them off each month...

And, there’s still even more NOT to love about credit card debt because it can also negatively affect your credit score. 

Credit reporting agencies pay LOTS of attention to how much of your credit limit you’re using for each card (called credit utilization). High credit card debt can tank your credit score… quickly.

I hope this doesn’t have you over there thinking: “So basically, I should give up…” 

No way! 

Not when I have a friend (who has some friends) who can help with all kinds of debt (including credit cards)!
