I’ll be honest with you.
As I write this, I can’t really answer this for myself. I have a pretty good idea and could come up with a pretty close guess, but I haven’t yet added it all together.
I’m guessing you might not know either.
Unless you’re rocking your financial life. But if that’s the case, why are you reading this? Go drink some mojitos and celebrate how awesome you are!
However, if that’s not you, but you’d like to be that person drinking celebratory mojitos, then it’s time to find out how much debt you’re in.
I know it seems scary. But let me tell you. The first time I decided to gather up all my debt numbers and add it up, I was terrified.
I figured if I didn’t know how bad the situation was, I didn’t have to deal with it, right?
I knew that eventually my credit cards would spontaneously burst into flames inside my brand new (and way too expensive) handbag, so I better just see what the damage is now before it gets worse.
And you know what? After I added up all my debt that first time, I felt relieved! I honestly didn’t know what number I was expecting it to be, and once I knew what it was, it seemed both higher and lower than what I was afraid of.
It felt like so much weight dropped off my shoulders once I knew how much debt I was in because for me, the unknown is always scarier.
And you’ll never be able to pay off all your debt until you’re clear on what the situation is. You need all the info in order to create a debt payoff plan.
So if you’re really serious about getting out of debt, it’s time to gather some information together.
I've created an Excel chart to help you get all the info you need in one place so you can quickly and easily make a plan to pay off your debt in a way that will be easiest for you to stick to.
