ouch.

i'm working on my debt too:

car loan: 11,000
house: 134,000
credit cards: 9,000

just payed off my studen loans though, were originally 11,000, they were jacking up my interest rate, so I payed them off first, now turning attention to credit cards.

I am trying to do the same at the moment. I wish my debt was only $50,000 but it's quiet more. And I don't even own a home just yet. But hubby and are are working on it as we can. Mine is mainly medical and stupidity not CC debt.

Well, since we're keeping tabs ;)
About 35k in CC debt, and about 50k in Student Loan Debt between hubby and me :)  
Workin' on it slowly but surely- CC debt sure racks up when you get in a car accident- well, 5 in my case :)

Am I allowed to pay people using just checks and cash?  I don't want to use my CC that often, and I won't buy much.  I need a good job.

I owe close to 25,000 myself....all student loans.  I'll probably be paying them off until 2020 or so =/

You can for the most part, but that will get tricky when you want to buy something big, like a house or a car. Most people can't walk up to a car dealer and hand them $20,000 in cash, or afford to lose all that money at once. Also, if you are going to go to college you probably will have to take out student loans, unless you have lots of money. It is also smart to at least get a credit card, even if you dont use it that much, because you will have a much harder time getting good interest on a loan or approved at all, if they have no idea how you will handle paying off loans; and they know how well you do that by looking at your credit score.

There are lots of ways to get money for school other than student loans and government grants.  Fastweb is one of many places where you can search for all kinds of different scholarships for a wide variety of majors given away by all kinds of organizations. :)

So true.  Also search your local, state, and government websites in order to find available grants to help pay your way in school if you can.  Also If I recall, I think there is a national website now in order to find just such grants for all of that.  If I can find it, I'll post it on my website for info for you guys.
