Our group responses are as follows: Organize Your Accounts & Credit Cards
Step 1: Collect Your Statements
Keep until they are reconciled then trash or if necessary keep for tax purposes
Step 2: Separate Statements by Account Type
Credit and store cards; Bank accounts; Retirement, 401K; Personal loan
If you have a lot of debt we suggest you consolidate your bills by getting all your outstanding bills together and then use credit counseling agency or bank they pay the bills off and you pay a monthly with a small monthly fee. If you go through credit counseling they can get the interest off or your credit card. If you use a credit counseling agency or bank take your monthly bills and out of pocket expenses. They have to leave you enough money to live on. Then they will determine how much per month you can pay.
We suggest you only carry one credit card for unforeseen emergencies i.e. car breaks down; on vacation and need to get home, inclement weather where you need to spend the night in a motel/hotel, etc. All other credit cards should be cut in half so you don’t use them.
This step is an ongoing process for me
