So, are you ready to pay off all that debt? What’s the best strategy to go about that? The Debt Snowball, that’s how!

Make a list of your debts including the balance, the minimum payment, and the interest rate. You should have already created a budget where you included all the minimum payments for these debts and hopefully you have some extra money left over to accelerate debt repayment. Which debt do you attack first? There are two schools of thought:

  1. Go in order of interest rate or balance. Paying off the highest interest rate debts first will save you money in the long run but paying off from smallest to largest balance will build you up mentally.
  2. If you need to see progress and achievement to keep you motivated, then pick off those lower balance debts first and kiss them goodbye!

With either method, once you put the extra money each month toward ONE balance (while paying the minimum for all other loans) and pay off that loan, ALL of that money can be funneled toward your next highest loan.

Here’s an example:

     Student Loan – $150 per month

     Car Loan – $250 per month

     Credit Card – $500 per month

     Extra – $500 per month


     Attack the credit card first by paying $1000 per month (credit card minimum $500 + extra $500).

     Once paid off, pay $1250 toward the car loan each month.

     Once paid off, pay $1400 toward the student loan each month.

You can see how the last loan will be paid off at a quick rate because you’re throwing so much money at it per month! This is a tried and true method for debt repayment!

    I oversee a vape shop web directory and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the United States that additionally sells CBD product lines. A Month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been restricted and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop directory. We do not offer for sale CBD product lines such as CBD oil. We simply provide marketing services to CBD companies. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Leading Health and wellness Retail store and if you take a good peek, you will witness that they sell a reasonably extensive range of CBD items, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It emerges that PayPal is administering double standards to many different firms. As a result of this restriction, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related web site. This has restricted my payment options and presently, I am heavily dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have spoken with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law firm in London and they explained that what PayPal is doing is absolutely against the law and inequitable as it ought to be applying a consistent standard to all firms. I am yet to talk with another legal representative from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. Meanwhile, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.
