- Advertisement -

Keeping track of your finances can be a messy experience, especially if you are not organized. However, it may be the key to obtaining a high credit score. You will need a good credit score when it is time to do things like purchase a home, take out loans, and apply for credit cards. This article provides some helpful personal finance tips.

Have a plan for dealing with collection agencies and follow it. Do not engage in a war of words with a collection agent. Simply ask them to send you written information regarding your bill and you will research it and get back to them. Research the statue of limitations in your state for collections. You may be getting pushed to pay something you are no longer liable for.

When it comes to personal finances, pay yourself first. When you get paid, put at least ten percent of your pre-tax income into savings before you use your pay check to do other things. If you get in the habit of doing this you will never miss that money and you will be building your savings account.

Pay off your high interest credit cards first. Come up with a plan for how much money you can put towards your credit card debt each month. In addition to making the minimum payments on all your cards, throw the rest of your budgeted amount at the card with the highest balance. Then move on to the next highest balance and so on.

For people who fly often, you should enroll in frequent flier programs with every airline that you routinely travel on. Look for credit card companies that offer purchase incentives which you can redeem for discounted airfare. Many hotels will take frequent flier miles in exchange for free or low-cost rooms.

When writing checks or using your debit card, always write down your purchase in your check ledger. You don’t have to do your subtracting at the very moment you make the purchase, but do make note of it. Calculate your expenses at least once a day. In this way, you will never be overdrawn.

As was stated earlier in the article, knowing that you can get out and stay out of debt is an important key to any person’s success. This article has offered you a multitude of tips, meant to help you control your financial life. Apply these tips to become more confident and comfortable with your financial decisions.
