  • Ok, would you feel comfortable asking if there is a "budget" for what "some" of your bills really mean?

    Do you mean they told you they would help you out but didnt say how much or what? I would tell them thanks, and tell them what bills you have and need help with. If they are truely doing it because they want to help you out it shouldnt matter. As long as the money is going towards paying things off/down, and not being blown on other things.

  • We don't have any debt, so I'd probably pay my car insurance for the next 6 months so I could take away that monthly bill. Actually, the specific bill doesn't make a big difference. Just pay something down! ; )

  • Any bill with a high interest rate, credit cards are usually the highest.

  • I would just ask how much they are wanting to help in a $ amount. That way you can best decide which bills to pay. I would say that I would pay off the lowest bill first even if it's not the highest APR. Then once it's paid off, you can take that monthly payment and apply it to the next lowest bill and then take all of that when it's paid off and apply it to the next bill...and so on.
