Stop Charging and Start Using Cash
If your credit card debt is getting out of hand, the first thing you need to do is stop using your credit cards. Many people get into the mindset of "I'll pay it off later" or "I'm already in debt, what will a little debt hurt?".
Debt Consolidation Warning
Debt consolidation can offer a great opportunity for people that have amassed large amounts of credit card debt at unfavorable interest rates. You can get lower, more manageable monthly payments and reduce the number of bills you have to pay each month.
Don't Apply For Credit Too Often
Don't apply for credit if you think you will be denied. Don't try to apply for credit cards too frequently. Submitting too many credit applications in a short period of time can lower your credit score and make it more difficult to get credit when you really need it.
Your Spouse and Your Credit Score
Keep in mind that your credit report may be tied to your spouse's. If your spouse has bad credit habits, it could affect your credit as well.
The Dangers of Co-Signing
The chances are that someone will ask you to co-sign for a loan at some point. With a co-signer, a person with no credit or bad credit can qualify for a loan that they wouldn't ordinarily be able to get.
