I wanted to share this here in case anyone missed it when it was on Lifehacker. It is totally inspiring to me, to see that it's possible to climb out from under so much debt. I have $80,000 in student loans and $10,000 in credit card debt, so some days it just feels like I'll never be free. I'll never have a home, or be able to save for retirement, or feel financially responsible. But she did it, and I want to get there someday, too.
