    What I found helpful in times past was to go to my local bank and consolidate all my debts.

One payment is convenient, but paying more in interest defeats the purpose of paying off debt.

    Maybe not 'looking up', but at least things are not looking down so much. Meanwhile, our noses are still above water, and, at least at the present time, a fee is not charged for breathing air.
