Depending on your age, I am in my 4 decade now. The depression age from way back then had it bad too, They lived off dried goods and stored up goods. They had back up skills too. We lost that and now we have to relearn that. I now go to second hand stores for books and movies, watch stuff online instead of going to the movies. I am now learning how to sew and cook, shocking--I never really learned how to cook real meals but now I am learning. I am also trying to re-educated my self on new job skills. Some jobs require state licenses, I don't need to go the school for that, I can learn that on my and test for it. I buy bulk my paper products too. All that is left is learning how to budget and that is a day by day thing, I will learn eventually. Good luck all :)
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
