This Debt Free College Education post is part of a sponsored collaboration with Bloggin’ Mamas and the Florida Prepaid College Board as part of the Florida Prepaid Mama’Bassador Program. However, all experiences and opinions are always 100% my own as this post is written by me in its entirety.
Debt in general sucks. So many Americans are trying to pursue the American Dream only to find themselves living off of loans from parents/friends, credit cards, and worst of all – Student DEBT Loans.
Attending college should be an experience. While incurring small student loans can be built into that experience to teach responsibility, many college students find themselves lost before they even graduate. Owing thousands upon thousands for a degree that will take far more years to pay off than it did to earn, student loan debt puts them into a rabbit hole without a ladder or rope to the top.
When we opened a college savings plans for the girls we did so with the hopes that we will give them priceless gift – the gift of education – DEBT FREE. By starting early we have found affordable options that can fit most any budget – without it becoming a burden for ourselves.
By doing so we’ve also invited our friends and family to be able to contribute to their future, education and success. With the Florida Prepaid college savings plans available, everyone can participate and contribute – as much or as little as possible. Helping them boost their overall earning power with each higher education degree they obtain.
Debt Free College Education
Most children have more than enough toys to last them for a while. Instead of receiving more and more unnecessary toys for the holidays, birthdays, and other celebrations, you could ask your friends and family to use the money for a better purpose – helping they finish college debt free.
I recently talked to you about saving for college: 5 reasons to start now. But there really should be only one reason…to give your child a fighting chance once they leave college – DEBT FREE!
Graduates today talk about one main thing – their student loan debt. Estimates from 2011 show college students start their real world life experiences at least $26,000 in debt. Feelings of despair when trying to figure out how they will ever get it paid off should not be a requirement of attending college. Traditional savings accounts don’t provide the same security needed for your child’s future education.
Student loan debt can be a heavy burden for any student to carry – fortunately we have the tools to make it possible to lift that burden without burdening ourselves, it’s never too late to start because Starting is Believing!
