People often used credit cards to buy things that they want to get, not things that they need. This behavior leads them to use the credit card all over again. They often think that they could pay it off when they get their salary.
Some of them do that, and some others decide that they only need to pay the minimum amount so they could have more money to spend. Then, after they spend the money, they saw something that they want, use their credit card, and the cycle repeats. In the end, they realize that they have too many debts that they could not pay.
When they reach this point, they’re starting to search several ways they could do to pay off the debts. Some of them choose to do the debt consolidation that proven to ease their burden by make a smaller monthly payment. However, they tied themselves to a very long debt payment time. This could range up to 10 years to pay all of it. In the meantime, the desire to keep buying things that they don’t need will roar again and again, and they use their new credit cards to buy the stuffs that they don’t need.
