Early 20's, finished college a little while ago.
No debt other that a grip of student loans. Don't even have a credit or debit card, no checking account either. Currently not working, but very little to no expenses at the moment, and am a very frugal/ascetic person.
I currently have enough in a savings acct to pay off all of the student loans in full, in cash.
Is it worth it to drain all of my life's savings to pay off my student loans in full? I haven't checked my bank statement recently, or my exact loan balance, but I'd probably only have a few hundred dollars left over if I were to pay everything off in one shot.
I realize I cannot earn more on my savings at the moment than the interest rates on the student loans. But I've also heard student loans referred to as "good debt" before.
So foo, in my situation, what would you do? Other general advice or suggestions/anecdotes welcome. Or suggest me some links/books/resources etc.
