stumbled across your post -- what did you decide?

 

I've never used debt consolidation.  Were you thinking of using a third party to collect the payment from you and distribute it to your creditors?And assist you in negotiating a smaller monthly payment?

 

or were you thinking of refinancing - that of paying off all the individual loans by taking out a larger loan?  Which could be helpful if your new interest rate was less than the previous loans.
