Drowning in Debt Due to Overuse & Abuse of Credit Cards?

If you answered “yes” to the above question, you’re not the only one. In Q4 2022, many consumers turned to a range of credit products to alleviate financial pressures driven by rising interest rates and high inflation, according to TransUnion’s Q4 2022 Quarterly Credit Industry Insights Report (CIIR).

Budgeting is Key

Many people who overuse and abuse credit cards don’t always realize they’re overspending until they’re drowning in debt. Personal debt is at a crisis point and people are looking for ways to get out of debt as quickly and as easily as possible. So where does one start?

A budget helps create financial stability by taking into account future income and expenses for a specified period of time—usually a year. This budget keeps your spending in check, to ensure you’re saving for the future, and keeps you from overspending.

Debt Management Planning is a Solution

Your goal is good financial health achieved by using credit wisely and sparingly. To reduce debt, you need a debt repayment strategy. Debt management plans are designed to provide a safe, effective way to pay off your debts in the shortest time possible.
