  • Pay down holiday debt as quickly as possible

    Even with the best intentions, it’s too common: People rack up debt during the holidays. If you have some holiday debt, chances are that you want to get rid of that debt as soon as possible.

    First, stop using your credit card to make more charges. But don’t close any longstanding accounts with a positive payment history as that can hurt your credit scores. You don’t want to put other areas of your finances at risk, so keep paying on any secured debt such as for a car or home or student loans.
