Summer is officially upon us, and with it the promise of warm sunshine, longer days and happy memories. But if you’re one of the 37 million Americans with student loans, that debt can feel like a constant storm cloud over your head – no matter what the weather outside may be.
Rather than let another lazy summer pass you by, why not use the next few months to make a dent in your education debt? Research shows that you’re more likely to achieve your objectives when they’re specific, measurable and time-bound, making summer the perfect time to set goals and see some progress by the time fall rolls around. And it doesn’t take much – when it comes to reducing your loan balance, a few small changes can have a big impact.
