    I'm going to have to disagree with everyone and say "Charge it up!"

    Deep debt is your friend. It's the smart thing to do.

    Brad, I couldn't agree more. But you forgot one thing - it's also just plain FUN. What could be more fun than serious debt?
    Just a few years ago I maxed out a couple of credit while not making enough money, made minimum payments and sometimes late payments. I got to pay on them for years! (without reducing principal - the gift that keeps on giving) What fun! I got to enjoy the fun of a 29% APR and making minimum payments every month and watching my principal balance go up - what a hoot! Sure, I'd recomend that to anybody.

    In all seriousness though, know what is fun? Paying them off and seeing how they hate it. I got back on top of my finances and earned & saved more money - sent Providian a chunk of money and on my very next statement they had a "special offer" for me - It seems that they would alllow me to skip my next payment with no penalties. I decided I'd decline their offer and I sent them another chunk of dough and the next month they had a different offer - I could skip my bill for up to 4 months with no penalties. I payed the ballance. I hope they cried.
