Well, as someone recently off the scrolls of student loan debt, I can tell you this -

Save. Don't spend it. Save it. Invest it wisely.

Paying my shit off gave me an incredible sense of freedom, even though I still have a wife and kid and household to maintain, the usual job pressure, etc. I thought about it, and the sense of relief was from knowing that I was free of debt service, so the best thing I can tell you is to save your money and not make a single interest payment more than you need to.
