WalletWorks Podcast – Episode 1: Tips & Tricks for Eliminating Debt

Tackling your debt can feel overwhelming. In this episode covering Tips & Tricks for Eliminating Debt, we’ll discuss strategies for paying down debt – like snowball vs. avalanche – and how to find extra funds in your budget without skipping a cup of coffee or clipping coupons. We’ll share ideas for reducing your expenses and how to determine if debt consolidation is right for you.
