The Savings vs. Payoff Debt Dilemma
Should you save money, pay off debt first, or split your funds between both?
Most experts recommend that you establish a solid emergency savings account and pay off credit card debt before you begin to pay down fixed-payment debt. When it comes to debt like credit cards and personal loans, you have a choice—pay off debts with the highest interest rate first or pay down the smallest debt first and then move on to the next one.
