On this episode Sarah and Georgia firstly discuss the breaking news and then they talk about the 3 main ways to pay off debt. Georgia then gives her tips for staying warm without having to turn your heating on.


There are 3 common methods for paying off debt: debt consolidation, the snowball strategy and the avalanche strategy.

To start with, write down the different debts you have, the amounts that you owe and the interest rates on those debts.

In brief, debt consolidation is where you combine several small debts into one larger debt and therefore only make one payment a month towards your debts (ideally with a lower interest rate).

The debt snowball strategy is where you put any extra money towards paying off the smallest of your debts first (once the minimum amounts are paid on all your debts) and once this is paid off, then you put the extra money towards paying off the next-smallest debt.

The avalanche strategy is where you pay off the debt with the highest interest rate first and the lowest interest rate last.

The method you choose will be the one that's right for you and your circumstances.
