Taking school one class at a time has been my strategy, like the little engine that could from my bedtime stories as a child, I just keep reminding myself that I can do this. I've faced financial struggles when I went through a divorce and found myself a single mother of two with no child support coming in while I tried to go back to school and complete my degree. I've continued to plug away for years at this goal by just taking one, two or at most three classes each semester as I could afford it. I also rented books online or bought them used whenever possible to save money there. Now, I have only 3 classes left after this semester, and I'll be completing my Bachelor's degree in 2016 with NO DEBT! It takes a lot longer going to school while working to pay for it, but it will feel great once I've achieved my goal and have no debt when I'm done.
