By: A.C. West

Are you looking for credit card debt help? Like so many other people, you may have charged your cards to the max and now it is time to get serious about paying those balances off. But with finances being so tight, you may think there is no way to accomplish paying off the balances. But rest assured - you will not be in debt forever! Just follow these 6 tips below to help get out of credit card debt.

1. You are going to have to cut back on your spending. Do not spend more than you actually have in cash or in your checking or savings accounts. Only spend money on necessities not luxuries. All of the money you save will go towards getting rid of debt.

2. Gather all of your latest bills from your creditors. Write down your balances, annual percentage rates and minimum payments. This will help you make a plan of attack.

3. Make your plan in one of two ways.

a. The first way is to take the account with the smallest balance and pay it down first. Try to double the minimum payment due but if that is not yet possible, pay as much extra each month that you can afford. By achieving the goal of paying the smallest account balance first, you will become more motivated to continue on your quest.

b. Alternatively, the second way would be to take the account with the largest annual percentage rate and work your plan of attack on this bill first. Again, try to double the payment or at least pay as much extra as you can.

4. Continue following the plan you have chosen. Make the minimum payment on your other accounts while putting all extra money towards your first chosen credit card to eliminate.

5. Once your first bill is paid off, take that same payment you had been making and apply it towards your next credit card. This extra amount, along with the minimum payment due, will really begin to take a chunk off that balance.

6. Keep following the plan until all credit cards have been paid off. Do no use those accounts again to keep the balances at zero.

By following these 6 tips for credit card debt help, you will be on your way to to becoming debt free. Just stay focused, determined and positive. You can do it!
