Cash Loans

The excuses for more will keep adding up, and here’s this company ready and waiting to hand you a wad of cash. Cold hard cash. The kind that’s easy to spend, because it’s in your pocket (burning a hole) instead of in the bank (waiting for bills).

Why not? Because if you don’t have the money you need saved in the bank, it shows you have a hard time controlling your spending habits, and you’re probably going to have a hard time paying off cash loans. This means a new set of weekly fees that you hadn’t
planned. Before you’re through, you’ll end up spending much more than you borrowed just in interest and late fees. Stop the mad cycle of easy cash loans and payday advances. You might have no choice but to borrow, but following a few simple steps can help
eliminate the painful after-math of a cash advance.

Only borrow as much cash as you need

This might be one of the hardest parts. When you’re applying for a cash loan, and you know you’ll be out of diapers before your paycheck comes, it’s so tempting to add a few bucks of spending cash to the credit line.

Stop yourself right there. Ask yourself a few questions.

  • Do I need this money right now?
  • Will I spend the money immediately on something that is necessary?
  • Can I do without the money by conserving my resources?
  • Will I actually use the money on this excuse, or will I end up blowing it on something frivolous?

Can you wait for the extra money? You probably can. It’s nice to have everything you want without waiting for it, but it will save you a lot of money if you just hold off until payday.

Will you spend this money immediately? If you want to advance an extra thirty bucks so you’ll have enough to for gas on Friday, you should reconsider. If you know for certain that you’ll need it, fill your tank on the way home. Don’t carry the extra cash in your pocket, because you’re likely to spend it on something else.

Can you find another way to get by? Most of us are surprised by what we can accomplish when we’re strapped for cash. Use only half the soap for laundry loads. Buy the cheap hotdogs for supper tomorrow, and reheat last night’s meal for tonight. But don’t use credit.

Are you really going to spend the money on what you think you’re borrowing it for? Cash is hard to hold on to. You know your habits. If you’ve blown the grocery money at a restaurant before, then don’t borrow it.

Don’t let the late penalties kill you

You’ve followed good sense and only borrowed what you needed. You skimped by on as little as possible, and now your pantry and gas tank are empty. You want to stop at the bank, cash your check, and buy a few things before going to the loan company to take care of your advance.

Here’s where you’ll make your biggest mistake. When you have your paycheck, go straight out and pay off that loan…all of it. The groceries can wait. The movie rentals can wait. Your only concern should be to get out of debt. Most loan companies can cash your check for you. This will make it easier to do all at once. Don’t spend a single penny until your debts are satisfied. If you delay your payment, or only pay it partially, you’ll start that ugly cycle again, and who knows when it will end, or how
much extra you’ll spend. Sell all your toys and eat macaroni and cheese for the next two weeks, but settle that loan.
