However, there are times that you just don’t have the money in order to pay your overdue monthly bills. Such situation becomes worse when you’re studying or only working in a part-time basis. And if you own a credit card, failure to pay your bills definitely makes the entire situation progress from worse to worst.


Listed below are the things that you must do in order to prevent the situation where you cannot pay your bills.

  1. Keep your expenses at a minimum as much as possible. The most effective way in keeping up with your monthly bills is to reduce your expenses as a whole. This is possible if you can minimize your electricity, water, heating (if you have) and internet bandwidth consumption. If in case that you’re one of those who own a credit card, you can minimize your expenses by making sure that you only use it in order to buy important things or necessities.


  1. Find other means of financial income. If your salary still can’t cover up the monthly bills, you may need to find other financial income sources. If you have an internet connection and a computer inside your house, you can find some part-time jobs online that will pay you real money.

If this is your case, contact your creditors beforehand so that you can minimize additional and unnecessary credit card charges.


  1. Always try to find a long-term financial solution. If you don’t want to get bugged by monthly bills in a constant basis, you must make sure that your financial income solutions must be on a long-term, if not permanent basis. In addition to that, make sure that such financial solutions will enable you to save some money aside from paying all of your bills at the same time.
