Whether it's a lot depends partly on what your income will be when you go back to work, and what your capacity will be to pay it off.

Zero. I’d be happy with up to £3k. Also I’d imagine maternity leave is a joint spend?

About £500 which will be paid off at the end of the month. The interest rates if you don't pay the full amount are really high, unless you have an 0% deal.

Around 17k..... I'm working on it! Cut them up when I realized I was at 20k

Nothing. Only use them for protection for larger purchases, so they're paid off as soon as the item arrives and is satisfactory.

Zero. We only charge what we can pay off in full.

I’ve had credit card debt only once when I started my first professional job. It required very nice clothing and even came with a signing bonus to help pay for those clothes, but I had to put them on my card and wait for my first paycheck to pay them off.
