  • You will have a better paying job won't you? Student loans are pretty small monthly payments with low interest rates. If yours isn't, try refinancing through your bank. Good luck.

  • I started working from home. I dont have kids in school yet but the company I am with has given me the assurance that I should have all my debt paid off in less that 1 year!!!!!!!!

  • I was in the same situation as you. I had a 2 year old when I finished school and lot of loans. My loans had a 6th month grace period where I didn't have to start paying on them until 6 months after I graduated. Yours might have this to. You should check into it.
