Another large expense that should be looked at is debt and how much that debt is costing you each month in interest alone. Figure out how to pay off you credit card and loan debt. Start putting more money toward the ones with the highest interest rates. Look into balance transfers to get a zero percent interest rate - but make sure you read the fine print and fully understand the contract. You can also call your credit card companies and ask about a rate reduction. If you need help, search for community networks or even debt consolidation companies who may be able to help. Shop around to find the right people with your best intentions at heart.
Another revealing study done in May 2018 found that 40% of Americans cannot cover $400 in the case of an emergency expense. This fact alone shows a major failure in the traditional banking system. Banks do not give quick, short-term cash loans. They only provide large loans, for specific purposes and have lengthy application processes that require good credit for approval. But this more recent study shows that what the public needs are quick loans that provide immediate relief.
In an emergency, coming up with an extra hundred dollars can feel impossible, and for the 26 percent of Americans without any emergency savings, it is impossible — unless they're using fast cash loans. These short-term, small-dollar loans address gaps in your cash flow. If you got sick and took a lot of time off work or had weather-related absences that showed up in the form of a reduced paycheck, paying the bills this month may be more than a struggle. Fast cash loans can help you make up the gap until your financial situation improves.
