We just got notice that DH's student loan payments are going up from $400 a month to $675. Its not like I wasnt aware that his payments would increase every couple of years but jeez this just stinks. We so cannot afford even the $400.

Just my little vent......

awwww... I'm sorry. That sucks. I am not looking forward to my increases. *sigh* I am going to have to have a job before then. I have two years yet at the current payment.

Wow, that sucks.

Jewelry for yourself, or for a friend. Breastfeeding aides, beautiful bracelets, earings and more.

That' s a bummer for sure. Has he consolidated them yet? Frequently, that will drop the payment amount ...

Are his loan on a graduated repayment plan? We stuck with the regular same payment every month for years on end!!

Are there things you can cut down in your budget to help make up the difference in payment?

My sister will have about 125K in student loans by the time she is done-YOWSERS!! I'm glad I don't have to make that payment!
