All debts need to be managed — remember not to commit to more debt than you actually can afford to repay or need. Try paying your credit card off in full each month to avoid interest. Paying off debt as soon as you can might be the best money move you’ll ever make.
Just in case the unexpected happens, make sure the important stuff’s covered, like your car and contents. Remember your biggest asset is your ability to earn, so it pays to be covered if an injury or illness means you can't work. Check out your insurance options.
