Interested in being the hottest thing on 4 wheels? We all know that nothing says sex appeal like your mom's minivan circa 1996, but once and a while it’s nice to have your own bit of freedom.

Having a strategy and some savings can make a world of difference so you can focus on the more important aspects of college life.

When Attiyya first got married, she and her Marine husband had just graduated from college and were focused on paying off student loan debt. They had both attended private schools and had sizeable loans. Then three months after the wedding, the couple found out they were pregnant with their first child.

The first year of their marriage, says Attiyya, was a balancing act between paying down debt and saving for the future.
