    I still think we should also do ratios. $45K of non-mortgage debt is a ton if your HHI is $50K/year. It’s a little less worrisome if that HHI is $200K.

    Our only real debts are two cars. Has anyone tried doing one of the 0% APR/transfer games to effectively finance a car at 0%? Unfortunately the manufacturer had no 0% deals available at purchase time.
