While life on credit is one option, one should be careful what type of credit he is getting into. Some credits are better than other credits are. If life on credit gets out of control, one can use some consumer credit counseling. Every credit should be carefully planned. Everybody should avoid situations that he decides to spend more money than he has and buy items he cannot afford. Many people have already fallen into the trap thinking that they can afford things that in reality they could not afford. One should be extremely cautious while applying for a new credit as it always has consequences.
