The Easier Way to Be Debt-Free by 2017

How to Become Debt-Free by 2017

For example, consider this situation: you have a credit card with a $5,000 balance and a 12 percent APR. “If you pay the minimum monthly payment of $100, it will take you 70 months to pay off the card and you will pay an additional $1,966 in interest,” Wong explains. “But, if you raise your monthly payment to $120 per month, you can pay off the card in 50 months and pay $1,500 in interest.”

The easier part is paying an additional $20 per month on your credit card. The harder part will be convincing 2017 to wait 50 months. ;)
