I graduated with my bachelor's degree without any student debt or credit card debt whatsoever. Because I saved my money effectively in high school, earned quite a few scholarships, and got some help from my family, I can afford grad school and I have the funds to start my own small business. It wasn't easy though. I lived at home so I could save money, my schoolwork was done on a very slow, very aggravating six-year-old laptop, and I still drive a car that's technically financially totaled, but these sacrifices allowed me to still get everything I needed to get done without accumulating debt.
