When my hubby and I decided to pay off our $117,000 of student loan debt in just three years, we knew we’d have to drastically cut our expenses. Saving money helps, but at a certain point, it’s impossible to save more.
We already had a bare bones budget, so we needed to increase our income. We both found higher-paying jobs and we found ways to make a little extra cash on the side.
I love blogging. I enjoy inspiring others to make smarter financial choices and it’s amazing that I can make a little side income through this blog. This money goes straight toward the debt snowball on my student loans.
Hi guys! I’m excited to share my third post in my side hustle series. I’ve mentioned before that frugality only goes so far – we can scrimp like crazy and be frugal weirdos, but at a certain point, it’s impossible to save more.

Today, there are more than enough online materials about making a steady side income from the comfort of your home. However, most of them are sales pitches and designed to convince readers to sign up for some training session, webinar and more.
I love blogging. It’s interesting, rewarding, and often opens my mind to new and different perspectives that I hadn’t considered in the past. I also enjoy feeling like I’m making a difference in other millennials’ lives. Reading personal finance blogs inspired me to pay off my massive debt as quickly as possible and to start making better financial choices. I hope to inspire others to make smarter choices too.
Hi guys! I’m excited to share the second post in my “side hustle” series. I’ve mentioned before that frugality only goes so far – we can scrimp like crazy, but at a certain point, it’s impossible to save more money. This is why making more money is a crucial part of the “getting out of debt” equation.

For those lucky enough to make all their ends and luxuries meet with no problem or worry, congratulations! The rest of us regular folks can attest to at least one occasion in our lives where we have been low on money or left with an unfulfilled desire to splurge on a whim.
My husband and I are working on paying off six figures of debt in just three short years – on entry-level salaries. Living frugally only goes so far – we can scrimp like crazy and be frugal weirdos, but at a certain point, it’s impossible to save more.
We can only save so much, but we can always earn more.
Increasing our income is an essential part of our goal of paying off $117,000 of student loan debt in three years. As such, I’ve been looking into several ways to start “side hustling” and increasing my income.

When I first started blogging, I did what many naïve new bloggers do: I focused 95% of my time on creating new content and 5% of my time on promoting it. For my first several months as a blogger, I shared my articles on my Facebook page and Twitter – that was all I did to promote my new posts.
Hi there, frugal millennials! I’m excited to share my first post in my new Side Hustle series. Each post in this series will highlight a particular “side hustle” (part-time job, business, or other income-generating activity). Side hustles are an excellent way for millennials to earn extra money, gain valuable work experience, and follow their passions. I hope that this series inspires you to find a side hustle that you love!
