According to Gail Cunningham, senior director of public relations for the National Foundation for Credit Counseling based in Silver Spring, Md., consumers mired in debt make common financial blunders, most of which can be prevented with discipline and behavior changes. Learn from these mistakes and start paying off your debt.

But most people continue to charge on the new card and wind up with more debt once the teaser rate expires, says Cunningham.

"Anything you can legally do to repair it you can legally do for free," says Cunningham.

Cunningham suggests that if you enjoy watching TV, but don't tune into a majority of the 300 plus channels you have, consider cutting back on your cable package instead of cutting out TV altogether.
For a detailed household spending plan, try our home budget work sheet. Or, get help creating a budget with our budget calculator. Plan for future costs by figuring up the total amount you'll owe and divide by the number of months you have until that day, says Cunningham. If you have money due next month, divide by the number of weeks you have and save that amount every week.
Bad Habit No. 5: Using retail store credit cards to take advantage of discounts Chances are that card carries a high interest rate you'll be forced to deal with if you don't pay off your balance each month.
Try this: If you must charge your purchase, use your general purpose credit card, says Cunningham.

"That rainy day will happen," Cunningham says. "It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when. If your tire goes flat and you can't pay upfront for the replacement, for instance, you're stuck with charging it or reducing funds earmarked for necessities. That's where the emergency fund fits in.
Try this: Maintain an emergency fund of at least three to six months' worth of living expenses and keep your insurance plans up to date. Work toward that goal by socking away 10 percent of your take-home pay each month in a liquid savings account, says Cunningham.

Try this: "Pay for living expenses first," says Cunningham.

"Creditors are constantly reviewing your credit activity, and if they see you falling behind with one creditor, even if you have a perfect pay history with them, they can raise your interest rate," says Cunningham.

By paying interest on interest, you lose any savings from buying a dress on sale, Cunningham says.
Try this: If you can afford to pay more or in full, go ahead and pay as much of the balance as you can. You never know when you're going to have a tough month. Pay in full every month and you can avoid interest charges altogether.
Or, if paying more than the minimum proves difficult, consider working part time or decreasing your expenses -- or both, says Cunningham. Put all of your earnings toward the debt.
