    How much personal debt do you have?

    If you're comfortable....how much personal debt do you have? Do you think you can be debt-free anytime soon? Do you follow a certain plan to achieve your financial goals?

    Had a coil go out on my car last week and had to charge it.
    So about $230ish.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    0, but I am not going to vote. Feels wrong to when I can still live under my parents.

    Re: How much personal debt do you have?

    OOPs I voted 0 when it should have been under a $1000. I forgot I make dinky payments every month to pay off medical bills.
    Otherwise, I am relatively poor, but debt free.
    Hey, wouldn't that make me wealthier than someone driving a new car with payments and living in a fancy house with a mortgage?
    Whoo Hoo, I'm rich!

    Over 100k if you include the house
    about 40k without the house (mostly student loans)

    Working on paying it off.

    Re: How much personal debt do you have?

    I have about 200K left on our mortgage on a piece of property I bought for 475K and is now worth a couple million So I guess I have that much debt though the current value of the land has skyrocketed (was farm land, now the stuff next door went for 100K an acre)

    I guess net I have no debt but on the books I have the morgtage

    If you don't count the house, less than $2000. If you do, probably around $75,000 total, although the house is now worth about a million and a half.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: How much personal debt do you have?

    I have about $20k in my name (all student loans). I'm also paying off another $25k in parent plus loans that are in my parent's names.

    Re: How much personal debt do you have?

    I don't know. I've got a bunch of medical bills for me and my kids, from before we had insurance.
    Bill collectors call me all the time, but I just ignore them. I never plan to pay it, and it doesn't affect my life any. I don't know the amount, nor do i care. I'm sure it's over a hundred thousand, all told.

    Other than that, i don't think I have any debt.

    I learned from my dad to save and pay upfront for everything except a house and then pay that off as soon as possible. I know that's not always realistic, but I cringe when I see friends putting luxuries on credit cards. That's just stupid.
