    I am happy to end the dept looop and see an end to it. 4 years is better then 11 years to pay off those balance. I only use my debit card from now on.

    • Tracy East says:

      Glad to hear it – debit cards are a great tool to end the credit card cycle and still have the ability to do things that need a credit card payment.

  3. Kelly says:

    Debt Management sounds great! I just want to payoff my cards, get rid of some and lower the credit limit which has gotten us in trouble.

    I would like to know how this works I pay u the monthly payment and u pay my bills I have listed

    • Tracy East says:

      Hi Jodi – With a Debt Management plan, you make one monthly payment to the Credit Counseling Agency handling your plan, and they then take care of the payments to all of your enrolled creditors. In addition, they provide ongoing education and support as they continue to work with you and your creditor to eliminate your debt.
