Just wanted to add, everything you've heard is great advice. But let me suggest two things:
1 is a repeat, can you find a 0% transfer deal? If so, you might just do one card at a time, snowball that card and then move on.. etc...You really need a no-interest deal on some of this. But regardless...

2: I don't recommend BUYing anything, not even Quicken or Money. Get out a pen and paper. I mean don't buy ANYthing... no cable, no cell phone unless for work, sell a car if possible, no soft drinks. Some may disagree and may say I am too severe, but you are fighting for your financial life and the next few months are critical. Good Luck...
