Debt settlement strategies work differently. Your advisors in debt settlement program will force you to save money in your own bank account or in one of their holding accounts. Meanwhile, they will talk to your creditors and convince them to reduce your interest by 50% to 60%. Once that deal is settled, financial experts will start paying your creditors in batches. The advantages of debt settlement strategies are these. You don't need to starve to pay minimum monthly payment by neglecting any unforeseen emergency. Also, you get time to save and change your lifestyle.
Ultimately, it is always wiser to avoid debt trap. If you can manage your finances in such a manner that you owe nothing to creditors, then you are smartest man alive! If you are thinking that can happen only in a utopian world, you are highly mistaken. There are many who plan their finances in advance. Make a budget for yourself and whole family at beginning of month. Live by it and swear by it. Don't buy things that you don't need. Don't buy stuff just because your friends are buying it. Live life in your own terms. If you can't resist temptation of credit cards, hide them somewhere so that you don't get to use them often. Carry cash; this will help you stay in control.
