  • HLN Money Expert Clark Howard talks to Brian McBride about how he paid off $26,500 in debt in two years

Students, listen up! In our Budget Boot Camp series, finance guru Suze Orman reminded us that student loan debt is the worst kind of debt you can have.

When Brian McBride graduated from college, he was buried under a whole lot of debt, including student loan debt. He was determined to not spend the rest of his life paying it off, so he made some lifestyle changes and in less than two years, he paid off $26,500 in debt.

We set Brian up with HLN Money Expert Clark Howard to share how he did it and what other young Americans can do to get their finances in order.
