Go to college, get a good job, buy a house, live the American dream. Sounds good right? I even know some people who were able to follow that plan to a “t”, but I also know some others who, after getting a college degree didn’t get that good job right out of college. So I decided that when my student loans are gone I am not getting back into debt. However I can get a house and live the American dream, whatever that will be, I am going to do it debt free.
