We’re into October. Those last minute Labor Day trips are now a memory that you have likely posted on Facebook or backed up in digital form to your hard drive. You have also likely received your October credit cards statement with a harsh reminder of how much that trip cost you. The charges can add up quickly and if you didn’t plan ahead with your finances you might fall into the danger of carrying a balance while you pay off your summer travel debt. Here’s a good article with some tips on how to pay down your credit card debt from your summer travel.
These are some great tips for those that can utilize them. If you are not fortunate enough to have good credit for a balance transfer or can’t qualify for a personal loan, you might need to consider other options. I would recommend that if you are now overwhelmed with your credit card debt, you might want to seek out an attorney that can review your debt situation to determine what options you have to get rid of your credit card debt. Carrying a balance isn’t the answer. Neither is ignoring the problem. Take action now before you find yourself deeper in debt or worse, missing payments when they come due.
