Can you believe that it’s almost Thanksgiving? I really haven’t processed that summer is over yet– it took our first snowfall yesterday to really open my eyes. Why does it feel like the older I get, the faster time goes by? That seems cruel. Does anyone else feel this way? Anyway, with Thanksgiving next week, […] The post HOW TO MAXIMIZE YOUR SAVINGS ON BLACK FRIDAY appeared first on DEEPLY IN ...

There’s so much uncertainty surrounding pregnancy. Will you have a boy or a girl? How will pregnancy impact your health? Will you be able to work while you are pregnant? When will that baby *actually* come? One thing should be certain though, and that’s how your student loans will be impacted if you are banking […] The post PSLF AND MATERNITY LEAVE appeared first on DEEPLY IN DEBT. ...

When my husband and I graduated from dental school and law school (respectively), we sat down and assessed our finances, including all of the student loan debt that had accrued while we were in school. I knew we would graduate with a lot of debt but seeing the actual numbers paralyzed me with fear. How […] The post THANKFUL FOR DEBT appeared first on DEEPLY IN DEBT. ...

I feel like Halloween is already over because we celebrated so hard this weekend. Our neighborhood does a really fun Halloween parade followed by a big celebration with trick or treating, bouncy houses, all that good stuff. I also ran a 15k, we had a church Halloween party, and Danny’s work threw a big Halloween […] The post CHEAP THINGS YOU CAN DO FOR HALLOWEEN appeared first on DEEPLY IN DEBT. ...

I started this “10 things” series a few months ago and I’ve really enjoyed it. It feels like a journal entry and it’s been fun to go back and read older ones. I don’t edit these much– I’m just saying 10 things that are in my head at the moment. So here we go. For […] The post OCTOBER’S 10 THINGS appeared first on DEEPLY IN DEBT. ...

A few weeks ago, I had a good friend tell me about her father in law who is a successful surgeon and crazy frugal. When I asked her what “crazy frugal” meant, she shared some amazing examples. She explained that when their family goes out to the movies, the father in law will rummage through […] The post FRUGAL LIVING HORROR STORIES appeared first on DEEPLY IN DEBT. ...

Since it’s October and we’re talking about all things spooky, I thought it was high time we chatted about what happens to your money when you die. If you are reading this, there is a good chance that you are younger than 40, are riddled with student loan/other debt and you might think you don’t […] The post YOUR MONEY WHEN YOU DIE appeared first on DEEPLY IN DEBT. ...

Do you think you could go one day without spending any money? What about two days? Three? A full week? Every now and then, we do a “no spend challenge” around here. A typical no spend challenge is where, for a set period of time, you basically are in a spending freeze with your finances. […] The post NO SPEND NOVEMBER appeared first on DEEPLY IN DEBT. ...

My son M was born my last semester of law school. People frequently ask me how I survived being in law school with a new born. It really wasn’t that bad, but to be fair, I don’t have anything else to compare it to! The hardest part for me though was keeping our spending in […] The post FINANCIAL MISTAKES NEW PARENTS MAKE appeared first on DEEPLY IN DEBT. ...

A few weeks before I graduated from law school, someone in our financial aid office spoke to our class about choosing a student loan repayment plan. To be perfectly honest, I don’t recall what was said in that meeting. But I do recall exactly how I felt afterwards– completely lost, confused, and stressed out about my student […] The post CHOOSING A STUDENT LOAN REPAYMENT PLAN appeared first on DEEPLY IN DEBT. ...
