When Your Bills Are Piling Up Here Are 6 Different Ways to Consolidate

When it comes to debt consolidation some people dream of day when all their bills will disappear. Next to hitting the jackpot, a debt consolidation loan is some times the only way out for a debtor. No more playing “pick the bill out of the hat” to see who gets paid, all you have is one affordable check to write each month and pretty soon the balances quickly disappear. WAKE UP! Come back to reality, it isn’t quite that easy, however if you do it right it works pretty well.

Different Ways to Consolidate

People ask me “What’s the best way to consolidate debt?” and of course “What’s the catch?” Well, it just really depends on the situation. There are all sorts of ways to do it and some folks get really creative too. I’ll tell you about some of the more popular ones and the pros and cons you get with them.

Just remember because it looks good doesn’t mean it is. The advertisers now a days are pretty good about disguising those higher interest loans with payments that go on forever because all you see is the lower payment. So try and ignore that sweet pitch for a lower payment if it means you just dug yourself a bigger hole and put yourself deeper in debt.

First things first. Let do a little wake up call. If you are just barely trending water because you are in to much debt, just realize that not all these options will work for you. And some times, no of them will. If that’s you, keep your head up high and don’t drown. Many people can really cut their debt without ever consolidating.

And don’t forget, if you do decide to get a debt consolidation loan, don’t think the fairy god mother is going to make thing all better. After all, once you do a debt consolidation you will still have to make a payment until that loan is paid off.
