I have a little debt a House, 2 Cars, and 1 Credit Card with $12,000.00 @ 4% interest no additional fees. I have very little savings only $3,500.00. Should I take this $3,500.00 and make a payment on my Credit Card or should I keep my savings and just start making payments on my Credit Card? Starting Jan 1st I will be making 1,200.00 a month payments on my Credit Card to get it Paid in Full. Please advise what to do with my $3,500.00. Thanks
If $3,500 is your only savings, make the minimum payment on your credit card this month and hang onto your savings. I suggest this because a good general rule to follow is to have 30% or 50% of your monthly earnings as in a savings account. This savings should be set aside for emergencies and unexpected expenses.
