The Debt Snowball Plan

In this lesson, you’ll learn how to use the debt snowball method to start feeling relief more quickly while digging out of debt.


The debt snowball is a plan to pay off your smallest loan or credit card first while making minimum payments on the rest of your loans and cards.

You can then use the extra money you have to pay off larger and larger loans and cards until you’re completely debt free.
