How Do I Know If I Need Help with My Debts or If a DIY Program Will Work?

When to ask for professional help with debt or diy and struggle to pay off what you owe.Q: My sister asked if my husband and I want to join them again for a winter get-away.

We’ve always enjoyed vacations together, so I don’t know how to tell her that our credit cards are maxed, we have a lot of debt and money is really tight. My husband and I both have good jobs and earn enough, but our pay cheques only seem to be going to bills and minimum payments. Please help!

My problems started when my roommate left to move back in with his parents. The lease is in my name and isn’t up for another 6 months so I’m stuck paying rent I can’t afford.
