#MoneyMondays “Why Debt Consolidation Isn’t Worth It”

Question: What are your thoughts on debt consolidation?

Answer: This is gonna be a long one! For those that don’t know, debt consolidation is when you take all of your debts and roll them into one lump sum. Folks usually go this route to get a lower payment or interest rate.
