You should use your credit card carefully. Things you don’t really need can lead to debt. Credit cards can be used in emergency situations, such as a mobile phone bill that’s due before your next payday. Think about your credit card as a temporary loan to yourself, and then pay back the amount as soon you can to avoid interest charges.

  • Pay off your balance
