Snowballing the debt means when you've paid off a card, you apply that payment to the next card, and so on, and so on. By the time you reach the last debt, you're throwing a pretty big chunk of change at it each pay period.Example:Mastercard 1000 bal 100/mo pymtVisa 2000 bal 180/mo pymtCar loan 5000 bal 285/mo pymtAfter paying off the mastercard, you continue to pay the 100/mo, but now you're adding it to the Visa payment. After that, you'd end up paying an extra 280/mo toward a car payment (nearly double payments- all that extra goes toward principal- very Foolish). This is a great way to quickly get out of debt. It take some discipline and isn't easy, but well worth it.Good luck!
