On Interview With a Person Who Paid Off $48,000 in Student Loans in Four Years

I did this too, $48k (not including interest) in student loans in just over 7 years. I'm not married though, so I mainly just tried to live below my means as much as possible and when I changed jobs, keep living at the smaller salary I was used to and throw the rest at student loans. I had been paying steadily but saving a lot and then I just made the decision that it was ridiculous to be saving at .5% and paying 5% in interest on loans. It feels so good!
