Follow along as Mr.C & I tackle $43,000 worth of student loans while trying to stay sane + still sock away dough for the future.
Our goals are to:
be frugal, but spend wisely
save for the future, but still pay down our debt
get a handle on our finances,
but not to be so miserly + obsessed that it feels depressing + unrealistically restrictive
to be financially responsible, but still be able to enjoy life
to be able travel, buy new things, and go out without breaking the bank
