If the total installments per month of the whole turn out to be more than 40% of the salary you get per month, it means you have the potential to get into debt problems in the next few months. This can still be overcome if you still have additional income, for example through a side job.

Starting to Stack Up Installment Payments because they feel heavy
Another sign to find out whether the debt is getting excessive is when you have started piling up monthly bill payments sent from the credit card issuing bank. Usually, one of the 'sickness' people who avoid problems is to try their best not to care and take care of it at all. When in fact you are piling up payments because you are no longer able to pay the accumulated installments that must be paid every month. If you come across this sign, be careful! Maybe you already have to find a way out to get rid of a lot of debt.

Start Paying Minimum Payment
Another sign that can be seen is when you start regularly paying credit card bills with the minimum payment method. Minimum credit card payment is a payment made by credit card owners by only paying (on average) 10% of the total arrears + bills that have not been paid off in the previous month (if any). This step is very popular because when you have accumulated debt, but you have insufficient money, you can remain free from the blacklist by paying a small amount.


Payment by making a minimum payment is just accumulating debt without completing it at all. You still can't avoid the interest that continues behind the payment of credit card bills with a minimum payment. Besides, if you persist in making payments using this method, all you have to do is slow down debt repayment, so that you will be freed from the shadow of heavy bills longer.
