Credit cards are as safe as you make them. So many people shy away from credit cards because other people misuse them. As long as you are disciplined about it you will be fine!

One way in handling your credit card correctly is by using it during emergency situations only. If your financial sources run dry and you really need to pay your monthly bills, then it is the perfect time to use it.

The best thing to do is learn how to better budget your money. Personally, I would recommend Mint.com to learn how to better budget your money. This site tracks your monthly spending on various items (car, insurance, eating out, etc) and informs you if your spending exceeds your monthly limit
