I am now close to 40Gs in the hole :(

As Salaamu Aalaykum,

When I started blogging my student loans were close to $30,000 they are now close to $40,000. :( I called to straighten some things out and the customer service rep was horrible. I'm angry and heavily in debt.

Time to hustle. I'm trying to get debt free in 3 yrs. I've had enough of this garbage.

InshaAllah. May you find a way to pay off your debt.

It looks like a lot of money. How do you plan to pay it all.

I'm graduating soon too and I'm trying so hard to get a job. I want to get rid of my loan within 2 years so that I can continue on with a graduate program. InshAllah we will pay back our debt asap. =)

That's bad how it can go up like that! I hope you manage to be debt-free in those 3 years. Would be a lot of sacrifices and hard work I'm sure but you can totally do it. Good luck!

@SimplyMe, AMEEN.I'm still thinking. So far I've worked on Ramadan Battle Plan a planner and I'll see if I can make some money of it too. insha Allah.

@Nur Amirah. inshaAllah. :)

@Candice. I DON'T KNOW! with the expected 3 year payoff it means we will be living after everything (rent, food etc) is paid on about $200 a month. So if there are any unexpected sickness or expense we are screwed. :(

I would really suggest that you give yourself some breathing room in the plan and put that breathing room money away in another account on all months where nothing happens (like sickness or other). But at least if something does happen the money is available.

@Candice, our plans have already been affected and it hasn't even been a month.
