Credit can be a blessing and a burden. Using credit wisely helps you build a strong credit history and secure loans and mortgages. However, credit use can lead you into trouble with poor credit scores and debt. Learn how to calculate if you are in the SAFE ZONE or DANGER ZONE for debt. Do you know your credit score? It's a short number with big power and impact on the interest rates for any money you borrow.
