Like many young marrieds, Leigh Mitchell and her husband started out with $140,000 in student loans. Then they bought a house. And a new truck.

Hear the story of how they got out of debt, and what Leigh is doing to try to keep other young couples out of the situation she and her husband found themselves in.
