I am trying to reduce my debt and here is the following scenarios. Please inform me or direct me to the best avenue.

Approximately $35,000 in debt.(combination of student loans, credit card, and car note)

1) use consumer credit counseling or any other debt managment program

2) use MS Money 2001 Deluxe, which I currently own, to do it myself.

3) declare bankruptcy and wait 10 years

4) use a law firm... (credit repair)

5) Invest in the market and hope to get a huge return and use that ot offset the payments.

Note: I am also looking to buy a home within the next year, so anything that will help me get good credit rating before the home purchase.

thanks. Alot
