The Strategy

Save Your Way Out of Student Loan Debt

I’m so excited to share this post in hopes it might help someone else in their student loan journey. This past week, I was thinking about creative ways to cut cost while still being maintaining a normal life. 

In looking at ways to cut cost, I took to Google and started searching methods on how to do Do-It- Yourself projects. 

The first stop started with me determining areas where I spend extra cash.  I don’t spend money often for spa treatments. Whenever I do it adds it up. The most recent event I participated in was for a good cause, but I cringed every single time I swiped my card. All I could see were the receipts adding up. To cut cost going forward, I decided to take a trip to Dollar Tree to purchase items for mani, pedi, facial, and teeth whiting.  I spent all of $9 opposed to spending $110 for a salon facial, mani, and pedi treatment alone. Of course, the teeth whitening is only a treatment in between regular treatments, but I thought it would be good to still do that as well. Baking soda was only a dollar so I thought why not?! All the other ingredients I needed I already had at home. 

Just calculating my annual cost alone, I will be saving a few hundred bucks.  I am most happy about for the savings alone.

As I find other ways to cut cost, I will definitely share those with you throughout my journey.
