Jim over at Blueprint for Financial Prosperity has been very supportive of my efforts to reduce my debt. Quite a few times he’s linked to my blog with nice words. He noticed my post the other day about how much I’m paying in finance charges now and he asked if I’d write a guest article for his blog. I said sure.
I wrote 6 key things I did to reduce our finance charges, and discussed each of them for the article on his blog. Here’s a recap:
1.) Tried calling my credit cards to see if they would lower my interest rates
2.) Paid off as much of our debt as I could
3.) Worked to increase my credit score
4.) Took advantage of balance transfer offers
5.) Used my husbandâ€™s cards
6.) Looked around for other ways to decrease my interest rates
Please visit Jim’s site for the full article. You also may want to look around his site a little bit for he has some great information over there.
Thanks Jim, and everyone else for your support. I can’t believe its almost been a year!
