Based on your answers to the quiz, you appear to be in good financial standing with sound financial habits.
To avoid future debt problems, make sure to keep your spending under control—particularly when it comes to credit cards. If you use credit, we recommended using a credit card with the lowest interest rate and to make sure to pay off your debts as soon as possible. Maintaining a zero balance and paying off the credit card each month would be ideal—remember the creditor will charge interest each month no matter how low your balance is.
If you don’t already have a formal budget in place, we recommend creating a budget so you can monitor your finances easily and make adjustments to your spending as needed. You should review your budget at least twice per year or anytime you are making a change in your spending or income. Also make sure to check your credit report at least once per year so you can dispute any discrepancies.
We invite you to use the free resources available in our Debt Learning Centre to build your financial understanding and improve your finances overall. If you know someone who needs help or you’re ever in a situation where your finances are out of control, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 1-888-294-3130 to speak with a trained credit counsellor for free.

A few of your financial habits indicate a more serious financial problem may be ahead if you don’t get a better handle on your finances. First, make sure to create a budget that accurately reflects your spending each month.
