You know saving money and pay down any -- that I had and because I was kind of science save up every day and put in my plays I would see.
You know -- contracts that balances that I have and it gives me -- feedback when I pay it down rampant credit cards and point of points that I can play with.
And how long has this site been up and running about six to eight months about that right.
That's right and what we launched it earlier in in the end of last year and went public and live with that in January and -- and how many.
Who we don't release exact numbers but we have tens of thousands of people from all across the United States I -- that you would recommend for people out there start paying down magnet.
I think the most important thing is out to consider small changes.
So where people can make cuts to things that are regular expenses -- you are have a big package on your cable bill and maybe you don't need all of those things.
Those kind to have it's definitely can make a shift.
And also wherever you can automate your word change your deposits so take things straight out your payroll and put -- to your credit card payment.
Or take it straight -- your payroll and put it into your savings so that you don't even think about it and it gets done for you every month that those are the kinds of suggestions that we think are really good plus refinancing debt.
-- right now for those people that can qualify for it can also be a good time because of interest rates being pretty low right now.
-- common question that people ask you.
When they're trying set either save money or get rid of -- -- little bit -- both.
I think the most common question right now is how to prioritize if I have both debt and not very much savings.
What should -- focus on first right and I think that in most important thing is start with your highest interest rate debt.
Focus -- and getting that debt down.
And then next focus on a short term emergency type of savings -- And that being a really important thing and then also make sure that you're doing the basics so that you don't get in a crisis -- and that is things like making sure that you have a small amount savings and you have you've put yourself in the position to you don't have to take -- -- -- again.
