Slowing Spending - The Key To Your Debt Plans Success
Anyone who embarks on a debt reduction program should know the rules for success. There aretwo. You need to stop adding to your debt. You need to find extra money to pay it off quickly.
You also need to know the deck is stacked against you. The sellers of goods and services havegobs of information at their fingertips. They know where you live. They have a closeapproximation of your income. They are aware of your interests. They also know your buyinghabits.
The information to which they have access is endless. They know the age of your car through itsregistration. The appliances you have because of the warranty cards returned. Where you shopbecause of the credit and store cards you have used. How old your mortgage is and what you owefrom public recording of the deeds.
Because they have this information, you end up on a number of lists. The sorting and use of theselists are an art and science. It is the source of the mail you receive, the offers you are made, andthe advertising to which you are exposed.
This makes for very effective advertising. They can target your "known" wants and desires. Hugeamounts of money are spent to convince you to buy this or that product. You have heard howexpensive Super Bowl ads are each year. They pay this type of money because it works.
Then to top it all off they make it so easy to buy. If you don't have the cash, they provide youwith credit, easy-pay plans, personal loans; anything to make the purchase possible. Manycompanies make as much from their financing divisions as they do from selling you their products.
So what do you do? How do you fight this financial onslaught and win? It requires effort andadvance planning. You need to wring all the value you can from your money. Become adept atmaking each dollar do the work of two.
You need to budget for purchases. Even if that means that you think about it for just a fewminutes before you plunk down your hard earn money. Justify your purchases; do you need it,does it make sense, can you do without? These are questions you need to ask yourself. They mayfly in the face of the materialism which surrounds us all, but they need to be answerednonetheless.
You may find using a purchase-checklist helpful. Anytime a purchase exceeds what you have inyour pocket tick down this list and see if it really makes sense to buy it.
*How much is it?
*Is this a sale price?
*If so what am I saving over regular price?
*What will happen if I don't buy it now?
*Can I pay cash?
*Where will the money come from?
*If not cash, what will be the credit cost?
*Is it worth it at the price with the credit cost added in?
*Does the purchase fill a need or a want? (think hard)
*Why do I need this item?
*Why do I want this item?
*Can I justify this purchase to another person?
*What would I say?
*Would I accept these reasons from someone else?
This should help in slowing you down. Couple this with not taking your credit cards with youwhen you shop. It does take work, but a little extra work is better than being a slave to your debt.
Now with the money you save go to work on your debt reduction plans. Work that side of theequation as hard as you do the spending side. Place as much as you can on your bills. Reduce andeliminate them.
