Pay credit debt down, used to be four words of wisdom we would always hear from our grandparents or parents whenever offering us advice about our future. If we suddenly came into money, or even if we received a generous gift from someone, you could always count on that phone call telling you the importance of you to pay credit debt down if your going to have a secure future.

With little to no growth in our economy, and with jobs hard to come by, for most people paying down their credit debt is no longer an option, let alone a goal to even consider. Of course this is not the only reason we simply fail to pay credit debt down in order to increase our savings potential. With the average credit debt higher then ever, mostly because of over use and abuse of credit cards, most people can only afford to make the minimum payments that are due to their creditors, which will keep them in debt to them for a long, long time. With all this in mind, is there a way we can still change our habits and live again by this once treasured, but now forgotten rule of achieving financial security 101.

Before we get into that, we first must start to eliminate credit debt from just our basic everyday living expenses that is nothing short of flat out being wasteful. Do we really need to order out lunch everyday at work. Start brown bagging at least 3 times a week and you’ll be surprised how quickly that adds up. Do we really need all those extra cable channels we pay for, or 2 extra pairs of running shoes that hardly get any use at all. As you see, you can eliminate credit debt from just about anywhere you want. OK, that’s a great start, now what. How do we achieve the bigger goal.

Well, first we need to look at this in its simplest form, and understand what our grandparents and parents were trying to teach us. If we were to pay credit debt down, we should expect to at some point eliminate credit debt, which would then increase our savings power, thus creating a more secure future for ourselves and family. Sounds easy enough right, but in today’s society not probable with our must have it now attitude.

Actually folks, it is that simple if we just know where to start. Lets start at the beginning. We decided were going to pay credit debt down in order to eliminate credit debt so we can then increase our savings power. First, we need to live like they did. In other words start eliminating expenses that are just not necessary.  Stop using your credit cards unless its an emergency, live within your means, and finally sit down and create a budget for your family and stick with it.

These simple steps will allow you to pay credit debt down, eliminate credit debt, thus increasing your savings potential. See, I told you it was easy.
