I'm lucky enough not to have any at the moment. However, I know some people who have up to $9,000.

Yeaaa! NONE! Well, someone stole my credit card last week when I made a donation to Susan Komen online. But it isn't MY debt.

NONE! I only have 1 credit card and I hardly used it. I think I only purchased like 4 things on it and that's about it.

At the time of this writing I am roughly $2 in debt. I've got a nice paycheck coming on Thursday, but for the next three days I have to sit at home and eat nothing.

$2 in debt? Seems like you could pay that off pretty easily.

Right now we are at about $3500 on a card that has a $4000 max. And its our only card. Uh oh! Fortunately, we pay off about $1000 a month, we just keep using it too.

I don't have any. Be smart and don't use credit cards, if at all possible. It is easy to charge and difficult to pay. Most people don't seem to understand how the cost of having something before they can afford it ends up drowning them in debt. Too many people pay the minimum due on a high interest card and have little hope of ever getting it all paid off.

I still think its a good idea to have at least one credit card in order to establish a credit history. While it can really hurt you to have bad credit, having no credit is just as bad.
