We can not pay all of our credit cards, loans, and revolving credit off. Which is the best to start with? Should we use the money to pay a couple down to zero or speread out the money and pay on them all? Thanks!


U want to focus on the revolving credit first, IMO. It factors into ur util. That is the first step. u want ur overall util to be low, so play with the numbers of ur balances/CL to find out what might be best.
