“Thought I’d get a prize at the end,” I casually said to my wife last week as we made the last payment on our student loans. This rather anticlimactic event marked the end of my personal journey to pay off over $83,000 in student loan debt and be completely debt free.

We did it! Like most people I thought I was going to be in debt forever. I started to really get serious about debt re-payment in 2013 and continued each year to lower my loans. The payments seemed endless, but on January 23, 2017, my family became completely debt-free. No bills to no one. The only way is up from here. Here’s how I did it.

First, Learn To Seriously Save Money

Next, Avoid Spending Money

That’s my secret. Save money and don’t spend it all.
