The first and easiest step to take is to destroy all your credit cards so that you are unable to have access to any more credit purchases. The next step is to draw up a monthly budget so that you can work out how much you can afford to pay towards your credit card debt. With these calculations in hand, you can approach your various credit card institutions and begin negotiating a lower interest rate or monthly repayment schedule that you can afford. Most credit providers will negotiate with you as they would rather see some of their money on a monthly basis than none at all.
In the individual cased where a creditor who will not negotiate with you, find out if one of your other credit providers will take over your debt from that creditor. Once you have negotiated amounts that match your monthly income and expenditure, make sure that you keep your promise to your credit providers and ensure that you make each payment on time.
