AUSTRALIANS have been warned to keep a greater watch on their personal savings to stave off a potential downward spiral into debt.

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission is concerned consumers are taking on too much without knowing the risks associated with their borrowings.

The financial watchdog wants Australians to make monitoring their money one of their most important new year's resolutions.

ASIC estimates that many people now have up to three loans with a mortgage, credit card and personal or car loans.

..and this one shocked me...well, it didn't really

Australians have one of the highest debt levels in the world, particularly for housing.

A recent report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development found Australians generally owed more money than they earned.
