Our credit cards are mostly for emergencies. I could not imagine having this much credit card debt.

We are working our way out of credit card debt. It is a struggle but very worth it. Thankful we didn't have the debt she does.

I love seeing tips from others who have struggled with debt and how they managed to knock it down bit by bit. No matter how much you know there are always ideas that I have not thought of and some of them have proved very useful!

Just the thought of that much credit card debt petrifies me.

Both of my parents buried themselves in credit card debits when I was a child. To this day, my father is still struggling with his debts. Because of that, I'm too scared to use credit for more than absolute emergency situations.

We pay our credit cards off every month and we have a rule that the first time we can't is when we will stop using them. It's easy to let that debt get out of control.

I am always extremely careful when it comes to where I use my credit cards.

I agree with her. Pay it off each Month so I do not end up in Debt over Credit Card Debt. I keep a small stach of Cash to keep me from using my Credit Card. Emergency only if I can.
