I believe a main goal in everyone’s life should be to get debt free. It’s something I’m actively working on myself at the moment- I’m putting aside other luxuries this year and primarily putting all my money towards reducing my student debt to improve my credit score. According to this post at Dale Partridge, you can be debt free by age thirty if you put together the right plan:
-Spend less than you make. Period.
-Don’t go to college unless you need to- 44% of current college graduates have a job that does not require a degree. Degree= debt.
-Never buy a new car
-Save 10% of your income no matter what
