This week’s post is by Jamie Griffin. Jamie Griffin is a Middle School Teacher and Blogger who runs the site MrJamieGriffin.com. He and his wife are working hard to pay off their student loans and teach others how to Do Money Differently.
My wife Jenna and I started our plan to aggressively pay off our student loans in 2013. Since then we have paid off nearly all of our debt, increasing our total amount paid every year. It has been a long road, and while the end is in sight, I want to reflect a little on how we got this far. I know that most people reflect sometime in January, but March is still pretty early in the year right? Better late than never! In 2016, we had our biggest year of debt crushing, paying off a crazy $29,586.55!!! Looking back at our year in review, I will show you how we did it.
