Daily Juice 023 – Debt “Snowballing”

In previous episodes, we discussed how to decide what debts to pay off first, how to prioritize them. Today I’d like to share with you a concept called “Snowballing”. You might be wondering what it has to do with debts?

Well, Snowballing debts means, setting up a schedule of what debts you will pay off first.

  1. Arrange your debts by Highest Interest or Lowest Balance
  2. Dedicate how much extra per month we will devote to our payoff schedule
  3. Add this additional money you will add to your minimum monthly payments
