Tip for dealing with creditors when you are short on cash

When money becomes an issue and you do not have money to pay all your creditors, start at the top of your priority list and list how much you have to pay the creditor to keep yourself out of immediate financial problems.

You can successfully turn even current bad debts into a positive credit rating.

Remember you will always obtain a better outcome when you negotiate directly with a creditor rather than with a collection agency.
