How much is TOO much?

The 20/10 rule

This general “rule of thumb” helps you understand how much credit you can afford Credit cards are loans, so avoid borrowing more than 20 percent of your annual net income on all of your loans (not including a mortgage).

And payments on those loans shouldn’t exceed 10 percent of your monthly net income.
