Section Four: Staying The Course

Look For Opportunities To Earn Extra Income

As you move forward, you’ll begin to get excited about getting out of debt. Now is the time to look for ways to supplement your income. Consider getting a part-time job. Look through your closets for items you can sell on eBay or Craigslist. Have a yard sale (or two). Take advantage of you talents and look for new ways to use them.

Learn To Celebrate Your Victories

When you pay off your first credit account, take some time to savor the moment. If you are married, schedule a special dinner with your spouse. You don’t have to spend money in order to celebrate! Simply take an afternoon off and read your favorite book or spend some time listening to your favorite album. If you have an accountability partner or good friend, share your news with them. Getting out of debt is a big deal, and you should feel good about your progress.

Start Over

Have you stopped following your debt reduction plan? Are you discouraged? Have you had emergencies or unplanned expenses, which have hampered your progress? We all face challenges and obstacles. Take a few deep breaths, gather your thoughts, and start over. Take a look at your calendar and block out a few hours for yourself. Sit down, reevaluate your plan, and get ready to move forward. Remember, it took time to get into debt and it’s going to take time to get out.
