Don't say "I'd give an organ to pay off my student loans" if you don't actually mean it.

MyBankTracker polled 200 of its readers to gauge how desperate they are to pay off their student loans, and in response to the question "Would you sell an organ?" 30% answered yes. Do you know what's sadder than that fact? Selling an organ probably wouldn't even fully cover the costs. I did a little research, and learned that after all the ancillary expenses that go with selling an organ (I went with a kidney, since that seems to be the most popular organ to sell), they only sell for $1,000 to $10,000 a pop. The average amount of student loan debt in the U.S. is nearly $30,000 dollars.
