Let’s be honest. Being debt-free is a big milestone. It offers you a lot of freedom to live life the way you want to – travel, buy a house, start a business, have a baby, get paid less, etc.
Having debt though is a reality that many of us face, usually multiple times in our lives. One thing’s for sure, if you’re trying to pay off debt, you’ve got to live someplace that enables you to enjoy a low-cost of living…while still having fun.
