Debt management expert

I was feeling a lot better today, as I was able to sleep late this morning. My overtime really takes all my energy, but I am glade that it’s finally over. Today, I made the minimum payment on my credit card. I did one balance transfer, one of around 300$ from RBC Visa to TD Visa at the rate of 4.99% for 6 months. Once this transfer is complete (it could take until next Wednesday), I will transfer 2 589.38$ I have in debt at TD Visa to RBC Visa at the rate of 3.99%.

At RBC Visa, the special interest rate of 3.99% end at the end of October. Which mean I have until the end of October to pay off the debt of 2 589.38$... I can pay off this debt, but only if I sale of one of my investment. I pick Desjardins Fidelity True North Fund. I will sell this investment. I have 1 000$ in it. From what I calculate, by the end of October, I will have 400$ left to pay on my credit card. But this will work out as I have a bit more than 300$ in my ING Direct account…

I have to find a way to withdraw the money from my ING Direct account. I think the only way, without having to pay any fee, is to proceed to a debit with their banking card. I remember receiving it a long time ago, but I cannot find it anymore… I have my high interest saving accounts with ING Direct since, I believe, 2005.

Life will be a lot easier for me when my 2 500$ little debt will be completely paid off.

About my other debts

Provincial student loans: 1 199.21$ at 4.75%
Federal student loans: 8 821.55$ at around the same rate
TD credit line at 8%: 4 865.68$
For a total of: 14 886.44$

Fact is, I don’t have too much debt. But I am slowly getting into the point where I am getting enough of debts. In a close future, I will look forward to pay some debts, while trying, at the same, to continue to invest. But in order to do so, I need more cash and more cash = get a second, third, fourth job, like I was doing before. I just have a couple of things to take care of. And even to transfer 2 of my investment into RRSP with Scotia iTRADE, I do not even have the money to pay TD Waterhouse the transfer fee, which is of around 25$ per transfer… I am that broke…. But things should get better soon once I work into my debt management program. Dealing with money problems is never easy, but there’s always a way out.
