    My only debt is my bills I get such as electricity but they are all paid on time or I am in credit.

    We have plans to go overseas in about 4yrs which works out to be around my 30th so saving for that atm

    Mortgage is only debt. We just started again after doing extensions. Our mortgage went up a lot, but by my calculations, we can have it paid off in 10 years.

    So sorry to hear. I hope things improve for you.

    We don't have any debt .
    We have a new car but it's leased through DH's work. So I guess it's not a debt as such.
    No credit cards, mortgage or loans.

    Approx 10 grand. I consolidated a car and credit card loan and cut up my credit card.

    I just upped the repayments recently , I'm so over it. It's 16 percent interest though as its unsecured.

    $35k thanks to a vindictive XH.

    My goal is to pay it off when the former matrimonal home sells which hopefully will be before Christmas. Then I'm all set up for a comfortable financial situation - until I buy another house LOL

    I'm sorry you've had such a hard year.

    We have a mortgage. My DH runs a business which has a credit card and car loan...but I don't count them as 'our debt'.

    We have been in and out of debt for years. Sometimes it's a necessary evil to deal with your circumstances at the time. It's a great idea to pay it off as quickly as possible so you can get on top and start saving instead.

    None, I even have money in the bank (my car is owned outright). I would like to have my own house though, so a mortgage would be a good debt to have.

    When I was 20 - 25 I had a car loan and it was the worst feeling. I hate having 'consumer debt' and avoid it at all costs.

    Default Re: how much debt are you in ?

    I had heaps of debt $17k car loan and about $12k in credit card debt from leaving the abusive ex and ending up homeless for 6 months. When i finally got somewhere to live i got a job then a second job a few months later. I was working a minimum of 50 hours a week. It took me about 2 years to wipe out all debt and save some money but i finally got there in the end.
