5 steps to debt relief in Toronto
Facing debt can feel endless if we don’t have a plan. To help lighten your load, we suggest using these five steps in your path to debt reduction in Toronto:
Step 1. Create and stick to a budget
Creating a budget is the best first step you can take when tackling debt. Start by taking a look at your monthly outgoings and find areas where you can cut back a bit. Try to put aside at least 10% of what you earn each month. Doing this will help you:
- Build up a fund to pay off debts
- Have money on hand for surprise expenses
- Start saving for your future
Step 2. Prioritise the debts with the highest interest rates
If you have multiple debts, some will cost you more than others because of high interest rates. While you should always make at least the minimum payment on all your debts, direct any overpayments to the debts with high-interest first, since they grow faster over time.
Step 3. Shift your debts from high to low interest rates
One strategy to speed up debt reduction in Toronto is to transfer high-interest debts to accounts with lower interest rates. If you have a line of credit, you could use it to pay down high-interest credit card debt. You could even ask your bank to raise your credit limit to cover it.
If you own property, consider refinancing your mortgage or getting a second one to pay off higher-interest debts. This can bundle your debts into one lower-interest payment.
Step 4. Increase your income
If it’s possible, explore ways to boost your monthly income. When paying off debts, even the smallest amount can make a big difference. You might think about working some extra hours or maybe even picking up a second job. Alternatively, if you’ve got the space, housing a roommate or tenant could provide another stream of income to repay your debt with.
Step 5. Set up a personal payment plan
Repaying debt, like any other goal, requires a plan. Begin by figuring out what you specifically want to achieve in reducing your debt. Talking to a credit counselor can give you fresh tips on how to handle your finances better.
Make a calendar that shows when all your payments are due and how much you should pay. It’s also a good idea to set up automatic bill payments, so you can be sure you never miss a due date.
