#1 Make a budget
This is something you should do regardless of whether you have loans or not. Unless you are a very wealthy person with more money than you know what to do with, create a budget for yourself so you’ll know how much money you have coming in and how much you have going out. It will help you plan better so that you won’t come up short when your bills are due.
