www.taxcalc.eu suggests that your take home should be nearer €3,800. Can you clarify the details of your payslips perhaps? Are you sure that you are claiming all relevant tax credits? Does the €3,500 figure reflect additional deductions such as CU repayments? Are you making pension repayments too by any chance?

What rates of interest apply to your various debts? Have you stopped using credit to fund your normal outgoings?

What are the details of your mortgage - original amount and term, outstanding amount and term, rate, rate type (fixed, variable, tracker), property value etc.?

Why did you rack up that amount of unsecured debt?

just ended up etching up that amount of unsecured personal debt as bank kept throwing money at me. and i bit the hook.. am a single person.
house value 400,000 under current conditions.
mortgage of 220,000 remaining fixed until mid 09. term of mortgage remaining 23 years approx.

the 3500 figure includes my credit union savings and loan payments 75 euro per fn. i also pay 6.5% pension.

the personal loan is a fixed rate loan. have no idea of the rate, but its fixed and 4 years left. i plan on stopping using the credit card, but at this time of year its tough, plan to stop using it now..

am claiming all tax credits. and i plan on never taking a personal loan again. also plan on setting up an emergency fund ...

Is the pension contribution to avail of some level of employer matching of contributions? If not then you should probably consider stopping the pension contributions while you tackle your debts first.

Forget about the emergency fund until you have reduced your debt in my opinion.

Have you contacted MABS and read the various debt management/budgeting tips in this forum and the Banking/Budgeting forum?
