The amount of debt you can safely carry depends on your income, your living expenses and your current debt.
As a guideline, your debt should be no more than 20% of your take-home pay (not counting your mortgage).
To figure how much debt you can afford, subtract your mortgage from your take-home pay, then multiply by 20%.
