resolve to make smart money management decisions throughout the year—and beyond.
To make debts more manageable, consolidate them into a loan that charges a low interest
rate so more of your payment applies to the principal. For homeowners, a home equity
loan is generally the best option. The rate is low, and the interest is usually
tax-deductible (consult a tax advisor). If a home equity loan is not an option,
consider a low-rate personal loan.
