Get Rid of Student Loan Debt with This Game-Themed Chart

Over one-third of young adults have student loan debt. The median debt for those who have student loans is $17,000--and some of us hold higher balances. It can be so draining to constantly be paying Sallie Mae for a degree you completed years ago!

Each month, you envision the day that your hard-earned money will go back into your pocket instead of straight to your loan provider. Fortunately, it is possible! You don’t have to keep your student loans around so long they seem like a pet. With dedication, determination, and the right tools, you can pay off your student loans fast.

Because so many of you are so dedicated to paying off your student loans, I created a special game-themed chart to help motivate you along your journey. (And, like all my debt payoff charts, it’s completely FREE!)

Gaming to Debt Freedom

My first game-style chart, Debt Free Land, was so popular that I decided to make some more! I created game-style charts for your car loan, credit card, student loan, and starter emergency fund.

Grab one or more charts to get started! Did I mention they are FREE?

How to Use the Chart

This chart is made for one student loan. There are 100 spaces on this chart, so simply divide your goal amount by 100 to determine the value of each space. For instance, if your loan is $5,000, each space is worth $50. So, if you make a $150 payment, you get to color in three spaces! I love the childhood game style of this chart.

If you have multiple student loans, or other debts to keep track of, check out these other free charts to help track your progress. One reviewer, Stephanie, writes, “My student loan payoff journey has been pretty long and it’s not over yet. So I love this [student loan] chart for helping me track my smaller payoff goal for an individual year! It gives me the ability to stay motivated in the short-term, while using the Debtris chart for the long-term balance goal!”

Have other debts? Keep this chart in a binder or on a bulletin board with your other charts to break up the bigger number into more manageable pieces. And, of course, to celebrate your wins along the way!

I like coloring my charts with fine-tip markers or Zebra Pen Midliners, but any old highlighters or markers from the junk drawer will work, too!

Conquer Your Loans

Reviewer Kristine D. writes, “This makes the loan payments so much more enjoyable! I feel like I am conquering territory with each payment!” 

I love this chart! It helps keep my student loans on the forefront of mind and adds another layer of accountability for me. I have a competitive personality and enjoy the board-game-like setup with the goal of reaching the end! - Madeline K., reviewer

Great resource to make finance visual and fun

I purchased and downloaded many of the money/debt tracking charts. I like that you can color them how you want or purchased color print versions. When I look at our finance board in our room it looks less daunting and more achievable just from these charts. Thank you for these wonderful resources to help us little people stay on track and keep our money strait!

I want to say thank you Heidi for these amazing charts. I love them and use it for everything. I have forms on my bathroom wall where i can see my progress. I currently have the Christmas chart and I'm saving for Christmas. I am almost halfway from my desired goal. Our currency in South Africa is in Rands and my current savings is R10 000. I have my daily challenges in order to save small amounts of money and it really adds up. Even saving R5 a day makes a huge difference . Coloring in those charts are fhe fun part because you can see the progress. Saving for a car as well. Have been driving my one for almost 14 years but I want to buy a car cash. Thank you for giving me the ability to do that. Then I have the 2 that I'm paying of debt. Progressing very well. I have shared these charts with my sister and friends and are super excited. Wish I could sent a photo of my charts. I'm super excited. Thank you Heidi. You have taken me to a place where I will be debt free one day. You have given me the tools to do that and I am ever grateful to you. May you be blessed in abundance for what you are doing for us..you are awesome
