Is there such thing as good debt?

If, like many people in Tennessee, you have a lot of debt and are feeling overwhelmed about being able to pay it all off, the concept of there being good debt probably does not make much sense. However, debt can certainly work for you when used in a responsible way.

How emergency savings can prevent unnecessary debt

Between monthly expenses and paying down debt, saving for a rainy day often takes a backseat for many Tennessee residents. However, having an emergency savings fund can be vitally important. If something were to happen that required immediate cash, people without emergency savings may resort to using their credit cards and incurring debt unnecessarily.

Are there any alternatives to taking out a payday loan?

If you are hurting for money, a payday loan may seem like a quick and easy way to get some cash fast. However, these types of loans are almost never a good idea because you will likely end up paying an exorbitant amount of interest. In fact, interest rates on payday loans in Tennessee can be as high as 390 percent, according to NBC News. However, you do have other options if you need to get your hands on some money quickly without resorting to taking out a pricey loan that you likely cannot afford.

How do I know if a student loan relief program is legit?

Unfortunately, there are many scammers out there looking to take advantage of people in order to make a quick buck. If you have student loans, the payments can be costly and it may be tempting to accept an offer of help from a company who promises to lower your payments or have your debt forgiven altogether. However, if that company requires any sort of upfront payment or charges you monthly fees, you can rest assured that it is not a legitimate company.
