Total debt. Card, school loans, everything.
EDIT: For the poll, don’t include mortages because that varies so much area to area.
Maybe include mortgages in the comments if you want just to keep the poll results consist.

@freshflowers: I am not 30, but just wondering if you are including mortgage loans as well? I assume you are, but just clarifying. That would significantly increase some peoples totals.

I’ll be 30 next month and I have no debt.

When I turned 30 – 0. Later in the year above 300k.

None – paid off all my student loans by 30 and I don’t have a mortgage. We probably will never own unless we move out of the city.

Just edited the original post.

@freshflowers: None, thankfully.

I’m 28 and have not had debt since I was 21 other than the mortgage.

In that case, I have over $40k in student loans…ridiculous considering California’s public schools are “free.”

I can’t vote since I’m not 30 yet. At 24, I have 18k of student debt. That’s it. By 30, I’m hoping it’ll be like 10k (it’d be zero but I plan on needing to take out student loans for my SO & I both when we go to grad school)…it could be less if SO’s dad actually does pay for her to go to grad school like he’s said he would. That’s super iffy though.

Other than my mortgage, I had (and still have) $0! I used to travel for work and on long car rides I started listening to Dave Ramsey. If you can cut through the preachiness, his advice is pretty solid if you’re trying to pay down your debt!

@freshflowers: At 30 I had paid off my car, didn’t have a mortgage and didn’t go to college so no school loans. I had a grand total of $900 in credit card debt. I’m up to $1500 in debt now, but will easily pay that down once I’m employed again.

@freshflowers: At the age of 30 (PS I am 37 now) I was just about to kick my ex out of our home. I had $8,000 in student loans an d $107,000 mortgage on the house. So $115,000 total.
No car loan, no credit card debt.

My husband & I have are both well under 30 (27 & 24 respectively) & no debt other than our mortgage (254k). We own our car, pay our visas off every month & never accumulated student debt since its subsidized by the government here.
