Paying off a huge student loan balance without a bailout is a huge accomplishment. That’s exactly what a fellow blogger did on the Double Debt Single Woman blog.
Her student loan balance started off at a whopping $112,258.42. That’s more than double mine, plus she had additional credit card debt of $30,340. That’s freaking insane. Her journey took a total of 21 years, can you believe that? She switched jobs, had bosses from hell, roommate drama, but still managed to contribute to a six-figure retirement account, for a net worth of almost $200k.
Here is where she started: https://doubledebtsinglewoman.com/2016/03/19/the-epic-student-loan-saga-begins/
And her latest update from last week: https://doubledebtsinglewoman.com/2019/11/20/ddsw-is-debt-free/#more-5108
I’m inspired by her tenacity, have been reading her blog posts for years at this point. I still plan to be completely debt free in a few months, barring any emergencies. Then on to the massive wealth accumulation phase.
Hope we continue to see more blog posts Woman! Thanks for sharing your story with all of us!
