So, the first thing you'll want to do is create margin in your cash-flow and start building up your own "holding account."
And if you have debt, balance your "holding account" accumulation with making extra payments toward paying off debts.
When paying off debt, you'll want to use the strategy that works best for your cash-flow and saves you the most interest.
Also, if you're having trouble finding any margin to pay off your debts, you may need to look for ways to cut your expenses.

Mathematically, there's no doubt that your financial perspective will change for the better when you have a "holding account."
