Pay it off and Pay Yourself!

Submitted by Kate Mielitz--GRA Extension

build wealth, not debt

If you want to save, but you’re struggling to find the best way to start, start with paying off credit card debt! Paying off high interest credit card debt allows you to stop paying interest and start accruing it instead.

Getting out of debt is one of the most popular reasons people say they decided to take the Saver's Pledge! Are you struggling to pay what you owe every month and still have some money left over to save? Check out these questions about determining if you might need to work on getting your debt under control!

If you need help figuring out where to start, you can reach out via AFCPE for financial counseling and coaching or to the  Financial Therapy Association for a financial therapist.
