    Yes but I have a plan in place for a couple things. And for the rest, that can be sorted as I hope to find something better paying for my final gap year before uni.
    Put it on a balance transfer card? You won't pay interest for a while and can work it out from there, or put it on a low interest credit card

    I would. However I don't have a good enough credit rating for one of those.

    Student loans aren't proper debt :P
    I second that, you really have a choice to pay back, so to speak.

    I have. An overdraft and a provident loan. They're all paid off now but I struggled a lot in my late teens.

    I realised my debit card wasn't working a couple of weeks before uni so I went into debt for a few days.

    STUDENT DEBT DOESN'T COUNT.

    I am currently in debt, but what about you guys, and how do you deal with it?
    No debt at the moment nor in the future.

    The lessons on the value of money was never lost on me. As a result, I only buy things I have the money for. If I don't have the money, I don't get whatever it is I want. Simple.

    I voted no but student debt should count. Just because it's been sold as not being in debt doesn't mean you should believe it. It's a different sort of debt but is going to be a big problem for most of us. My parents have kept me out of debt so far, they say they aren' doing it in future.
