Thank You Sallie Mae!

Sallie Mae and I aren’t good friends. I think it has something to do with me owing her a lot of money in federal college loans.

However, we have a problem. I planned a few trips too many in the next 6 weeks and I’m being kicked off the family cellphone plan I’m on. This means a lot of expenses in a short period of time. What is a woman to do?

Take some continuing education classes! I’ve been meaning to take some extra classes to keep myself occupied and learn new things. By doing this my payments are getting deffered to end of term. It’s a win-win situation! I’ll get to take classes, which total to much less than one loan payment. I’ll also continue to pay the interest and what of the principal I can afford, but I’ll be able to also have extra money for these major expenses coming up soon.
