We’re Dealing With $180,000 in Student Loans | JEN TALKS FOREVER
Like many Americans, my husband and I took out student loans to pay for our college education. Between the two of us – that racks up to approximately $180,000.
I have a B.A. in Communication, while my husband attended culinary school. We’re in the process of getting out of debt, and I wanted to share our story as a cautionary tale.
We’ve been able to pay off our student loans faster by using proceeds from house sales toward the debt. Living below our means and budgeting our money is also a big factor.
