10 Ways I Have Made Extra Money

Making some extra money on the side is a great way to help hit your goals faster! While paying off debt, I did everything. Here is 10 ways I have made extra money.

  Extra money can be a great way to pay off debt, save money or give yourself a little extra spending cash! Depending on your financial goals, the extra money can go multiple different directions for you. If you have figured out your income and expenses and feeling hopeless, there are tons of ways to make a little extra money. When I first started paying off my debts, it was a slow roll. At first, I didn’t think I made very much money. Honestly, as a waitress/bartender I didn’t know how much I was making. Because I always had money, I never tracked how much I had. When I first got serious about paying off my debts is when I got serious about tracking my income. Then, I got serious about making more money. Once I realized that I had a decent amount of money, I realized that I could make more. I watched people online making money from a ton of different ways. I started looking into a ton of different things. Ultimately, when I am looking at different side hustles, I try to decide if the time invested is worth the money paid for the activity. Here are a few ways that I have personally made extra money. 1) Poshmark ($150)  Poshmark is a clothing reselling app and website. You can list your used clothes on the website and make money from them. It is a little like Ebay for clothing. It does take a little bit of time, but it can be great! If you want to sign up for Poshmark, you can use my “ELYLYONS” referral code and get an extra $5 if you make a purchase. Once you spend the time listing things, it can be a little bit of passive income after that. If you spend an hour listing everything, you might make money from that a few weeks down the road because sales can happen anytime. I have spent just a few hours listing things and make money over and over again from those hours. The more active you are on the app,…

10 Things I Did On My First Day Being Debt Free

After working on paying off my debt for over 26 months, I am finally debt free! Check out how I spent my very first full day of being debt free! I bet it isn't what you would expect or maybe it is exactly what you expect?

I finally did it! I am finally debt free! In case you missed it, I paid off my very last student loan after 26 months of working my tail off! Two years ago, I posted my plan to pay off all of my student loans. However, at the time, I had hoped that it would only take me 12 months. I more than doubled that timeline, but I still accomplished it. If you are new to this blog and you haven’t read my story, here it is. My name is Elyse. I am 24, not married with no kids and I am DEBT FREE! I never really thought of myself as someone who was in debt. With no credit cards and no car payment, I was not the average American.  All I had was a few student loans. Everyone has student loans, so it never really crossed my mind that I was in debt. But, it wasn’t until a few weeks before my 22nd birthday that I got a loan for a Jeep and my very first credit card. I should say credit card(s). There were two or three that “showed up” that month. For that month of December 2016, I thought it was so cool that I finally had a credit card. I was excited over it actually. I was learning about all the different rewards I could cash in and it was fantastic. Even though I had never needed a credit card, I was determined that I needed them then. I even went on vacation using mostly my credit card. I had racked up a pretty decent amount of money on my credit cards and started picking up extra waitressing shifts to get it cleared. While I have never paid interest on my credit cards, I have definitely gotten close. I was excited about all of my new things, until my student loan bill came due. I had officially been “on break” from college for 6 months. My grace period was over. A $415 student loan payment showed up in the mail. I didn’t think that I had $415…
