You probably know that debt liquidation is paying off your debts. What you may not know is how to effectively rid yourself of debt. If you have lots of debt, the idea of paying it off can seem daunting. It may feel like you’ll always have debt hanging over your head.
There are some people that recommend not saving any money until all of your debts are paid, however, I feel like this can lead to more debt. Listen in to learn why.
I advise my clients to save a bit of money while they are paying off their debts that way they can have a bit of an emergency fund in the meantime.
How to use the snowball effect to pay off your debts faster
If you have multiple types of debt like student loans, car payments, credit cards, or home equity loans, I recommend using the snowball effect to get it all paid off.
Snowballing is done by paying the biggest chunk of your cash flow towards the loan with the highest interest rate. Once one loan is paid off you can take the funds that you were using for that loan and put it towards the next one. Just like a snowball rolling downhill, this way, your individual debt payments get bigger and bigger as you move down the list of loans until they are all paid off.
Now it’s time to get serious about paying off your debts. While many people feel that they need to direct all of their cash flow into debt payments, you shouldn’t neglect your savings while liquidating your debts. It is important to build up a healthy emergency fund so that you won’t slide back into debt at the first bump in the road.
Listen in to learn tips on how you can finally get those debts under control so that you can begin living the life you truly want.
