Creating a spreadsheet with all of your debts, balances and monthly payments is the first step. Enter each payment that you make so watch as they decrease over time!

There are many debt relief companies out there that will charge you fees to dispute errors on your credit report. But not all these services deserve the trust of consumers, so be careful!
Credit counseling programs are an excellent way to get the information and resources you need in order to pay down your debt.

Debt Elimination Tips
When you’re working towards debt elimination, it can be hard. But with the right plan in place and some patience for your efforts to pay off those debts over time – they will disappear!
These are additional tips that might help:
It’s important to have an emergency fund in place before you divert any extra funds for debt repayment.
As you pay off accounts, I encourage you to start paying toward other debts. This will help keep your credit score healthy and ensure that if there is an emergency with one of these loans or cards in the future (i.e., medical bill), then it can be paid off quickly without worrying about whether or not they’re current on their payments!
Knowing that your credit score is going up can be an excellent motivator for paying off debt. You’ll want to keep track so you know when it’s time to make changes to maintain good standing with the banks!
It’s important to reevaluate your budget and financial situation if you change income during debt repayment.
When your debt is paid off, don’t stop there! Continue to use the budgeting process in order to keep yourself out of new debts.
