    Debt is an ugly word. In fact, most of us don't even realize how much debt we actually have. It silently accumulates, like lice, but it's your money! The average American household has $15,762 in credit card debt, has $27,141 in auto loans, and $48,172 in student loans! The good news is that loans and credit cards can be really helpful and rewarding- just remember to pay them off! Source: The U.S. National Priorities
