Getting financially healthy
A lot of people these days are really focused on getting more financially healthy. I constantly run into, or hear from, people who are in financial classes to learn how to better handle their money, and how to get a handle on their debt. My brother and his wife were in one, and they just loved it! One good way to get yourself on the road to a more healthy financial life is consolidating. For example, student loan consolidation - often this can reduce your monthly payment up to 50%! That is a big difference! And in addition to dealing with just one lender, you can lock in a low, fixed interest rate that will not increase. Another very good thing about it is that you can work on upping your credit score, because you will have less open accounts. That right there is a great reason to do it, if you ask me! Getting truly healthy means working on all parts of our lives, and that includes our pocketbooks!
