The Real Reason You're Drowning In Debt

Debt is one of every parent's worst fear. It threatens your financial ability to look after and provide for your children, and that in itself is enough to make you never want to experience it, but unfortunately, getting stuck in debt is a lot easier than people seem to expect. People think it will only happen if you're terrible with money and never pay attention to what you're spending, but in fact, even the most minor of decisions can end up leaving a huge negative impact, so it's important to know how to avoid this as much as possible.
Here are some of the most common reasons.

No communication skills.
If you have a partner, it's essential that you both communicate openly about your finances, especially if you're living together. You should always feel as though you can openly bring up your financial situation when you need to - even if there isn't an issue - talk about your different spending styles, future goals and your problem areas. Discuss budgets and figure out who's covering what costs. Will you alternate, or will you split everything down the middle? Look on for tips on starting the conversation.

If you've just come out of a job, a lot of you may believe it will only be temporary. - A couple of weeks to a month max before you find something else. - While this positive thinking is encouraged, you may not be thinking as realistically as you should. Sometimes it just doesn't work out how we had assumed, whether that be lack of work available, or motivation, and this means you're not making an income, but still have monthly expenses to pay. Although you can't always avoid bad situations - you can work your butt off to make sure you're never left without an income.

Taking out a loan can seem a good idea at the time, whether you need to put down a deposit on that house, or the car, or the holiday. The problem is when you take out multiple loans to feed into your wants and overlook the priorities - like paying your bills on time every month, ensuring there is food on the table, and paying off your existing loans. Sites like can help you do this by providing you with a final loan in order to pay off all of your existing debts. That way all you have left is one sum as a pose to multiple numbers and costs.

Not saving enough.
One of the easiest ways to fall into the debt trap is by not saving up enough, if anything at all. As soon as you get your paycheck, the first concern is putting the money aside that cover the monthly bills. Then whatever is leftover, leave ten to twenty percent for your general spending money, and put the rest into another account that isn't allowed to be touched. If you do that every month, you'll make it to the end of the year with a wonderful number looking back at you. The temptation is real, but the end result is so worth it.
