I'm new to the boards so bear with me. I have somehow managed to accumulate about 5K in credit card debt. I would like to pay this off as soon as possible but I don't have any extra income at this time. However I do have a 2K position in the Kaufmann fund and a 3K position in the Janus fund. I make monthly contributions to each of these funds as well. I am in the process of reading the Fool Investment Guide, which says I shouldn't even be in mutuals. Should I sell my positions in these funds and retires the debt or should I just stop the monthly contributions of $100 and pay off the debt the best I can? Sorry for the long posting but any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks Ramtough
