Hey Fellow Fools! As a fresh new Fool, I need some advice. I'm going to finish college this December, but my wife is already done and has a $21K loan which we are paying on. By the time I graduate, my loan will be around 28-30K and I'm wondering how am I ever going to start investing while I'm staring at 50K in loans! We've accumulated a large amount of debt while getting ourselves through school, but this should be completely paid off by Sept 99. I know through reading that you shouldn't start investing until you are debt free, but attempting to do this will take me another 5+ years before starting( I'm 35 years young). The loans are around 8.5%. We are investing 6% of our pay to our 401k programs were we work at, but should we attempt to put any money into investing other than our 401k's?Thanks,MinteerFool
