The craziest thing people do to repay student loans

Advertisement

Some people go to extremes in saving to pay off student loans or other types of debt. Some people think it's cheap, others think it's creative. The following men and women have made great sacrifices - for example, to give up their basic comfortable life and live in unusual places in order not to be in debt. A couple uses washable clothes instead of toilet paper. Yes, you read it right. This is absolutely extreme. It's a little disgusting. We can't help asking how much money they've saved. [/ P>

Amazon lists a 308 piece giant roll, six sheets of toilet paper in a bundle, for $6.99. It must last for weeks or a month. Is it really worth the trouble? The couple also burn wood as a heat source, forage in the wild and sew clothes for their children. They finally paid off $89000 and saved $20000 to buy a house. The guy brought and cooked his own food in a restaurant while sitting with his friends.

He really wants to go, but he doesn't want to pay for the meal. He brought the brisket from home, asked the waiter for hot water, and cooked it on the table, while his friends ate their own. Logan later felt sorry for being so cheap, but two years later he paid off his $20000 loan. A woman was deliberately homeless and moved into her boyfriend's car.

They "camped" in the woods near the city. She can achieve the economic freedom she pursues, and her boyfriend can save enough money to buy a new Prius and a sailboat. He does it in cash. Christine said she would do it again without hesitation if she needed to. The couple refused to buy holiday gifts for each other (or anyone else)

everyone likes gifts from time to time, but for a couple, it's a luxury they can't afford. A man named Richard and his wife made various attempts to pay off their debts, including cutting a terrible haircut at home. They decided to give up the traditional way of giving gifts on birthdays, Christmas and Valentine's day. Gifts on anniversaries and weddings are also prohibited. The couple won't buy anything from each other unless it's investment or real estate related. The two also refused to participate in social "obligations" that cost them money. They acknowledged that they had violated the expected social norms. The family moved to a bad community, where they raised their children happily.

apart from being homeless or living in a car, another option is to move to a less ideal community. A woman named aja is in debt of $120000. Her solution is to move into a "hood". It's too bad there. There are bullet holes in the back door. However, the place is free, so they decided to do so. Aja doesn't regret moving. She eventually raised her children there and really loved the community. While many may not have made the same decision, it is the right choice to repay a large amount of debt. The couple spent $1 on a car. Photo source: Artur widak / nurphoto via Getty Images. One of the problems is that they only have one income, and their wife Alice takes care of their baby. They save money and sell things on Facebook. They also added water to the spaghetti sauce to extend its use (which is not good for the taste buds). This is certainly a risk, because a car of such low value may have some problems and may cost a lot of money. A person moves to South Korea. Photo source: deastini / Getty Images

you will think that traveling abroad will increase your debt, but for a person, it will help fight against debt. This man made a lot of money teaching in Korea. The company he works for pays his rent, and his expenses are very low, so he can save a considerable part of his salary. It's certainly helpful to live rent free when paying off student debt (or any other type of loan). If your salary is good and you can live in another culture for a while, it looks like a win-win situation.

a woman named Sarah graduated from university and obtained a student loan of US $23000. As a full-time teacher, she refinanced whenever she had a chance, but found that all the extra money had to be used to pay off the debt. In addition to after-school tutoring, she decided to give up owning a car and take the B cycle for three years. It must be a good exercise (good for her heart, too). It also enabled her to pursue a master's degree. When she can't ride a bike, she carpools. When she paid off her debts, she entertained herself with a new iPhone.

some women use sexual attraction to repay their student loans. A woman under the pseudonym of Brooke told debt.com that she would be in debt of $100000 after graduating from Stern School of business at New York University. In 2014, she joined the "looking for arrangements" website, which links "sugar baby" with "sugar dad". Sugar dads are often older, wealthy men who pay young women to meet their needs. It doesn't necessarily mean that men and women sleep together. It's a way to pay the bill, Brooke said, which helps those who seek "a higher level of education without heavy debt.". In her spare time (private swimming class), the girl did an extra activity to earn extra money and decided to pay off 28000 yuan of student loan and 10000 yuan of car loan. Her daytime job paid just $12 an hour, so she decided to look after her children at the weekend for $15 an hour. Not enough. At that time, the licensed lifeguard decided to teach a private swimming course for $50 an hour. This summer, Lauren made an extra $1000 in "busy while busy", and her efforts paid off. It took her only 18 months to pay off the loan, and just before her 24th birthday, she was proud to be "debt free at 23". A couple bought second-hand furniture and set up a blog,

In order to pay off the debt, Lance also launched a blog called "money Manifesto". Their common sacrifice paid off. They had no debt for three years, and Lance's blog, initially for extra money, later became his full-time job. The couple lived in a camper for a year and almost got hit by a tornado. After graduation, the Roma school, which has more than $50000 in student loans, believes that minimizing their lifestyle will help pay the bills. They sold everything and searched Craigslist for the perfect camper. They put all their valuables in the warehouse and lived in an Oklahoma camper for 11 months (without air conditioning). They are suffering from ice storms and almost hit by tornadoes, but they believe that the experience is "totally worth it". In addition, they may have time to explore, which must be very interesting.

Nikki graduated from Syracuse University with a debt of $10000. She got a job as a software trainer in New York City, but it was only enough to pay her rent, and not enough. She decided to leave the apartment and live with her friends. She "begged and begged" everyone she knew to find a place to live for a short time. She also uses the sofa surfing website to find a place to lie down at night. In addition, she did some odd jobs, such as taking care of pets, to pay off her debts. She has no regrets and advises others to bear the sacrifice so that they can live without debt. The lady started a cake business at home.
