What would you consider "debt"?

I know the definition but I guess I mean what amount of debt do you feel comfortable with having out? I'm on track to paying everything off by at least mid November. I was hoping by mid October but looking at the numbers now I'm not sure. I've been paying off(between me and my gf) 500 every 2 weeks. It's just exhausting being broke all the time though.

I just have this thing about me that I hate oweing people. I still feel like I have to pay someone back from freshman year in hs. haha

 

So should I get down to totally zero or should I be comfortable at a small balance of about 500 on one card and take time to pay it off without stress? It would be my nfcu 5k Cl card that would carry the balance.
