Spending limits must be realistic
Refrain from using your credit to subsidize your income.
Review your statements regularly from your creditors while on the DMP. Report any unusual fees or activity to CCCS Operations Department, and send a copy of each of your statements every three months for official review.
Keep an accurate record of your cash flow and expenses in order to stick to your plan.
Make your spending habits consistent. Large expenses should be pro-rated over a period of time.
