4 Sacrifices I Made to Pay Off Student Loan Debt Faster

Check out the latest guest post by Jacob regarding 4 sacrifices he made to pay off his student loan debt faster.  Check out his bio at the end of the post. 

Student loan debt always sounds like a good idea when you first learn about it as you enter into college, but I can tell you that it is not as dreamy as it sounds. In fact, once you graduate from college, you will receive a bill for the amount you borrowed PLUS interest.

Yep, interest.

Therefore, in many cases, if you do not pay off the student loan quickly, you will end up paying double the amount in student loans than what you borrowed.

Unfortunately, when you have student loan debt, it affects your life and you may feel completely defeated as you try to pay down your debt. Not only will you have a monthly obligation, you will notice that the loan balance does not seem to fall when you make payments on it, or at least that much.

Below, I will talk about 4 sacrifices I made to pay off student loan debt faster.

How to Save Money on a Road Trip

Hey, Fabulous Followers!  Check out the latest guest post from David about how to save money on a road trip.  See his bio at the end of the post. 

As a traveler and a family man, I know how challenging it can be to go places. There are so many things to worry about especially the expenses. My family and I have been traveling by RV for six months now. I admit that it is an enjoyable experience, but there are also many things to consider.

One thing that we have to worry about is the budget. We have to make sure that we have enough food on top of fuel and maintenance fees. In the past, when we didn’t have an RV yet, we traveled by car and worried about lodging which adds to the expenses.

Since we have a daughter, it is essential that she enjoy the road trip as much as we do. My wife and I make sure that we research free attractions to pass by whenever we go on trips. We want our daughter to grow up adventurous and to appreciate the simple things in life. Vacations and road trips need not put a hole in your pocket; you just need to be resourceful and plan wisely.

I have decided to write about my traveling experiences and share tips on how to save money on a road trip. Hopefully, all you travelers out there learn many things from this article.
