My Credit Card Debt is Too High, So What Can I Do?
When checking your monthly credit card statements, you may have a jaw-dropping realization that your spending has gotten out of control and wonder how your balances have become so high.
Whether you’ve only been paying the minimum monthly payments or just relying on your credit cards too much, getting a handle on your debt is vital for a healthy financial future.
Learning that your credit card debt is high can be pretty overwhelming. Here are some tips to help you bring your balances down.
Pay attention to interest rates
Interest rates can be a big culprit in high credit card balances. It might seem like it won’t be a problem paying off the items you charge when the bill comes in; however, when the interest rate is tacked on, coming up with the extra money to pay off the balance can be difficult if it doesn’t fit within your budget.
Contact your credit card companies and inquire about a lower interest rate. There’s a good chance that they may be able to help you, but you won’t know unless you ask. If you are courteous, can prove that you have been a loyal customer, and can show that you make your payments on time every month, credit card companies may be willing to work with you and lower your rate. One phone call could help you save a significant amount of money, which you can use to pay down your debt.
Consider a Debt Relief Program
If you have multiple credit cards, a debt relief program could be an effective way to lower your balances.

Control Your Spending
It’s tempting to swipe a credit card when you want or need something but don’t have the cash available. However, this is not a habit you want to be accustomed to. The leading cause of high credit card debt is charging more than you can afford to pay.
Make sure you keep tabs on your spending and know when you shouldn’t use your credit card. You shouldn’t use a credit card to pay off other debt, to get out of a financial emergency or when you can’t afford to pay off the balance in full. Doing so could end up putting you in financial dire straits.
