Set a goal to pay off debts in a way you feel is most manageable. Credit can be a useful tool if used wisely, but mismanaging credit can get you off track quickly.

Remember to pay yourself

Your financial plan should include savings as part of your short- and long-term goals. Whether for retirement, buying a new home, or just for a rainy day, saving is an important part of achieving financial freedom.
