When my hubby and I decided to pay off our $117,000 of student loan debt in just three years, we knew we’d have to drastically cut our expenses. Saving money helps, but at a certain point, it’s impossible to save more.

Are you struggling with student loans? I know how difficult it can be. When my husband and I got married, we had a combined total of $117,000 of student loan debt. Being buried in six figure debt is overwhelming – I felt trapped and hopeless.
