Tips to avoid the debt trap
The best tip is to keep an eye on your finances. If you have a good overview and know how much money comes in and out, you can more easily see what you can afford and how to save money. If you are organized, you also have better control over various bills and can pay them on time or see when they cannot be paid. If you have a bill that you feel you cannot pay, then do not just roll it on but contact the company and try to split the bill or terminate the subscription / service. If you let it roll on, the debt quickly becomes much larger.
When it comes to loans and credits, one must make sure not to borrow unnecessarily and above all one should not borrow money to pay interest on old debts or the like. Taking a loan costs money and soon you have to repay the loan plus even more in interest. If you continue in this way, it becomes a bad spiral that makes you fall deeper and deeper into the debt trap.
Finally, you can try to avoid unnecessary expenses. In fact, such as parking or speeding fines can be avoided by being a little cautious and staying within the laws. This is money wasted on nothing at all, which could be used for much better things. There are often also some other things that can be saved, for example, that you have unnecessarily expensive electricity contract or expensive loans that draw a lot of money.
