From the headquarters of Ramsay Solutions Broadcasting, but all our car rental studios. If that day, Brown please we're dead, is dumb caches. King in the paid off home mortgage has taken the place of the Bmw how's, the status symbol of choice,
I'm diagrams your host, thanks for being with us, open phones, AAA eight to five five, two to five. That's AAA two five, five, two to five. Is whether such Massachusetts. I welcome that. I'm sure. Who do you think you someone for taking my call chirp? What's up so where? the whole damn they re envy way of. Why I'm so we're just starting number to an end question is, credit cards are in question. We haven't made payments on them, not even minimum so How I have one was dead, smallest, How many of them are? They are there that are in collections. Right now, there's two better question and aren't you ve not paid any payments on them for how long. Honestly, I think like two years, mocha? Don't?
those in your debt, snowball! Ok, is that the only thing that you're that far behind yes, sir, we have other than that current on your paying home. It's all of your current on your cash You work your normal dad. Snowball until everything is paid off, but your home, how much debt that you have not counting the to credit cards and collections. Both of us nine, be no eighty thousand dollars and half a by more than half of that is to know on what the other half. I'm a cop- that's ok, most of that in his student wound and one of our eighteen thousand Carl on the assistant, and what your household income
I have called income right now is sixty four thousand dollars a year. My husband works to jobs we thought that and National Guard foe, I wouldn't get rid of the eighteen thousand other car. There's a lot of car as broke his jailer. Yes, yeah one fourth of your dad and it's you know it's if, if ever the English paid off. You could have car if you paid for it. But it's it's really a big chunk of your life Much. Do you owe on these credit cards that are in collections, One is two thousand and one in six thousand win get ready to address them there. Those are big enough that there eventually sue you. Little ones will never get around and allowing their eventually going to show you know: you'll have plenty a notice when they do sue you you may have
stop. Your death snowball, amended and pile up some money, an old credit card can usually be settled for somewhere around a quarter on the dollar so meaning a four thousand dollar lump sum settlement offer on a six thousand dollar two year old credit card to she has been paid on, or probably saddle that with some arguing in some haranguing in a bunch of whining and a bunch of listening to their grasp it all up, but the other you keep Baden on improbably, shall it for about a quarter on the dollar? Ok, ok! So, at some point in the process, as you're gonna save up a lump sum, I'd like for it to be at the end, although you have a pile of that and not a lot of income it's gonna, take you gotta, while the big, through their so I don't know if you're gonna get by with not deal with these, until all the other that's gone like I was originally saying, as you ve gotten. It's you just can't be their le while so Matthew and sue you. It's not like,
have twenty seconds to come up with the money. Ok, I saw you must wear them for thirty days, you mess with them for sixty days. Not and so you, if they actually do it, they'll, threaten for two years before they get around to it. So you can't use new could tell a credit card. Collector is lying in his mouth is moving So you can't believe all the bluffs and all the carrying out an You're, gonna? Settle it wear them. You have to get it in writing in writing, and it cannot be. Not have electronic access, your checking account. Does it clean you out when you do get around to settling it about a quarter on the dollar in writing and doing that. So, if you're going along in this thing, you ve solved the car in your plan through the student loans and your two years down into this thing and not for years since you put on the credit card and they have been we get around found soup got some time while you're doing that to negotiate with them start
your national bomb pile up the floor for granted settle among lump sum. No payments came ok not sure. That's all you have done, but you got your rather car. It's killing tell me is whether in Georgia high time, we welcome that I've Ramsay show. How do you think you could take him home cheerful up, I'm having bars remorse myself, but you know back in September, purchased a cookie on my back story, I am your marriage with an automotive manufacture, an Irish A car amount of eight hundred dollars a month and so Will you get the car allowance, whether by the car not know you Do you have to have a vehicle either you have purchased? Why will you have two weeks what in order to keep a car my on from male yeah? Ok, what do you work for me?
Nissan! Ok, ok, so that, but the deal there offering you at Nissan is its maintenance, its everything right. Maybe it's a bargain this is, it does not have this not a car purchase. This isn't employ benefit it here. What they're, giving you don't think, give you tyres, maintenance, gas, everything in the deal the up and You can't drive a car that cheap anywhere else So an you, don't have to keep it. You can turn it in one month at a time right. All young people have to keep it like a year a year. Ok you're keeper year reaching flip around every year. If you want to, but it's not it's not like a normal car payment or normal Charlie's. Now if our information be doing that deal, we purchase a truck
might like they are trying to leave, not my hope and after a long shot. You didn't do that Nissan deals. Are you actually bought a truck or you're doing the Nissan biometric. Ok, so we bought the truck, but give me the eight hundred dollars in my paycheck. Not while why don't you do the day or they pay for everything that will be and I told him I was happy to the eight hundred every month. Anyway, let light by your. You figure that eight hundred dollars they can pay him. Now you got car payment. Now your dad I am trying to compete to sail the true one thing: not yet I would do the deal outward
the least with them is not a standard car lease unless they elect. You often means in your programme, at least on its eight it some it's a rental program that includes all of your maintenance, Oliver Insurance, all of your tyres. Everything is built into it and you can't drive a car is cheapest areas. There are least programme is unemployment benefits, not least by regular harlings, and so that's the way I would do it. I wouldn't buy a car go into debt, get a car allowance from them.
Folks. I don't have to tell you what your student loans that is doing to your budget, get rid of it got a splash financial, dotcom slice Ramsay and see if you qualify to refinance your loan to a lower rate. Unlike other refinancing, splash has no fees, I'm talking no application feet, no closing costs not even an early pay off fee and if you qualify, you'll get lower rates to help you get out of that faster sounds like a no brain or to me, stop wasting time go to splash financial dotcom slice. Ramsay check your interest rate in minutes and see if you qualify as with a girl book with a vibrant, you do. How can help trying to be a good

Looking at the budget
Yeah they shine on what I've been doing harm in order that these are what our in cutting edge him, how to break it down and to all the different expenses, but he's Eustace, giving a certain amount of money out of the bank for his pocket money each weaken arm he doesn't seem to want think about changing how much you spending what some version of this, and I usually sarcastic version.

Was that you had to be in a place that you wouldn't be emotionally the financially spiritually healthy moving towards that. Ok- Dave Ramsay, was all across the profile. Oh my god! Oh god, I had not heard much about you. I had a few people from work, mention you and so when I met, though I was kind of a place where I was a single mom, I owned a home, really was too much hops. For me. And so I was at a place that I needed get out from underneath that house and so thought

What motivated me and gay offered for me. It is making sure that everything that we did with strategic we'd thought long. I'm not just short term solutions.
