It's no secret that college can be expensive. Usually, students are left with debt for many years following their graduation, and their degree winds up useless. If you find yourself working at McDonalds after spending four years on an accounting degree, follow** these seven easy steps to erase your debt in no time!
1. Sell Anything You Don't Need.
Sure, this won't make you tons of money, but there are plenty of apps where you can sell old clothes, electronics, books, etc. to make a bit of spare cash.
2. Do Small, Odd Jobs.
Again, it won't make you tons of money, but doing little odd jobs for the elderly is both noble and provides you with a bit of tax-free money.
3. Cut Off Contact With Loved Ones.
This might be the hardest step, but it's a crucial one. In order to truly become debt free you'll have to run away from home, and to make yourself truly untraceable you can't have any contact with your loved ones. So kiss your mom goodbye and hope she'll understand that this is what's truly best.
4. Create An Alternate Identity.
If you're going to truly disappear, you'll have to leave behind every trace of the person you once were. You'll have to create a new sense of style, name, job, etc. Think of this as a fun activity!
5. Pick A Place To Move To.
Don't spend too much time on this part, since it won't matter a ton in the long run. You may find you want to keep on the move, or cross borders. Usually, keeping on the move is the safest option.
6. Buy Plane Tickets.
Sure, plane tickets are expensive, but you'll only need a one-way trip. Besides, sometimes you need to spend money to save money. A plane ticket might be a few hundred dollars, but it'll enable you to leave behind thousands worth of debt.
7. Run Away To Start Your New, Debt-Free Life.
Sure, you'll never see your family again and you need to start a new life with a completely new identity, but hey, at least your loans are waived.
**Disclaimer: Don't actually follow any steps after number two but like, it's your prerogative, I guess.
