May has been a fantastic month for side hustles! It seems like so many things just magically aligned this month, and looking back on it, even I can’t believe I managed to earn $760, almost completely passively in a single month.
This is an outlier month for sure, as far as side hustles go, but I’ll take it!!!
Here’s the breakdown:
$261.11 from Ebates
$190 from Facebook Marketplace Sales
$309.74 from blog income (affiliate sales + ad revenue)
And that equals $760.85, which all went straight to debt!
Are you side hustling during your debt free journey? What’s your favorite one?

via @buzzfeednews || Jordan Long would have been part of the class that billionaire Robert F. Smith pledged to help. “I was in a state of shock and also happiness," Long told BuzzFeed News. "Happiness for my friends and late seniors who are graduating and getting their debt paid off ... but also sadness, and, like, Dang, that could have been me." Long said his choice to drop out of Morehouse was the result of a failing institutional problem in the US. "If these other billionaires paid their fair shares [of taxes], I wouldn’t have had to drop out," he said. (📷: Jordan Long | 🎥: Morehouse College)
This is where we stand on May 1, 2019 with only two loans left. 🙌🏼❤️
We have come a long way since we started in October 2014. We have paid off 12 credit cards, family debt, a car loan and Rick’s student loans. I know what is like to feel hopeless and scared. To stress out about money and look at a mountain of debt. I’ve been there and I’m rooting for you! Let’s have patience together! Let’s give each other hope. One day this debt will be out of our lives forever! 👟⛓
Sell baby sell!! Guys - I'm doing it!! I've washed and cleaned and vacuumed my truck and listed it for sale on FB. This is huge! I really enjoy this truck, but I know I'll enjoy not having payments even more. I've been going back and forth on selling it since February. 😬
I've never sold a car before and I've done a ton of research on KBB, Edmunds, and browsing local markets to see what going prices are. I'm definitely intimidated to do this as a single woman (and it's a truck no less 🙄). I would be so appreciative of any tips the #dfc may have. 🙏🏼 I owe a lot on this but I owe less than it is worth so I'm hoping to get enough to springboard me into a Dave car. My goal is to sell it before registration is due: about 2.5 weeks! Is it reasonable? Can I do it?
Oh the unknowns..😐
I just wanted to make a quick post for the people thinking about getting into Law and Law School.
This is my stack of law books for this semester - only a few of these are for personal development for conduct inside a court room.
You do not have to read the whole book, but keep in mind you have to be somewhat familiar with many of the cases in these books.
Think long and hard about whether you can commit yourself to this every semester for 4-6 years before even applying, because I have watched many people drop out in their first couple over weeks and when its too late and have already incurred debt.
Today On Our Three Types of Credit Accounts Series... ↪️ ... We're closing with installment credit account ↩️ One word to sum up instrument credit account is loan. Whether it be a car note, mortgage, or funds to finance furnitures, there's usually a collateral involve. Except, in the case of student loans. The main concept of installment credit account is that there are a set of number of payments calculated to be made at issuing. For example, you may be familiar with a mortgage being for 15 years or 30 years, and a car can be financed for 36 months to 84 months in some cases. Although student loans can be calculated for a set number of payment, they can usually go past that projected period of time due to your ability to defer your loans, or applying for forbearance. In addition, you could elect to choose from a multitude of income driven repayment plan. To be honest, student loans as a topic deserves a series of their own. One unique characteristic of installment credit account is that they have a projected close date. Many people would argue that it's best to just pay for something cash to avoid extra charges due to interest. My belief is that it comes down to finding balance. You can be in debt without feeling like you're drowning. In fact, there's such a thing as positive debt. As far as credit scores is concerned, since having a mix of types of credit helps, and it's more unlikely to obtain open credit account, I'll lean towards saying it is a better viable option. Plus, it is easier to manage into your budget in my opinion. As always, be responsible my people. Until next time, peace. ☮️ #creditrepair#credit#creditrestoration#creditscore#creditrepairservices#realestate#financialfreedom#entrepreneur#badcredit#business#money#loans#creditcards#tradelines#debtfree#creditkarma@creditkarma#goodcredit#studentloans#finance#creditcard#debt#mortgage#bankruptcy#fixmycredit#success#realtor#homeloans#creditrepairagent@creditczar@lynxskillz#ifixcredit#TheOasisFirm@theoasisfirm

Currently at work training I’m the youngest (24 years old) with the average age being about 45. Everyone seems to believe I am in need of their life advice. Do not get me wrong, I understand that I’m young and have a lot of life experiences ahead of me but I will not take advice that getting out of debt is a bad idea. Tonight at dinner two of my coworkers seemed upset that my husband and I never took a honeymoon nor did we have a vacation planned for this year. I explained that we chose to put our money towards paying off our debt instead of extravagant vacations. (Although, we still do small inexpensive day trips when our days off align.) I got “you’ll always be in debt!”, “you need to get out while you’re young”, and “just wait till you have kids, you’ll be back in debt”. I responded calmly with “don’t worry, we are going to be debt free after September and then we will save up for vacation”. My coworkers were not satisfied by my response but got the point that I was not interested in their advice to stay in debt. How do you handle explaining yourself to normal people? Or do you just not even try? We’re determined to be weird and I’m not going to let anyone convince me otherwise especially when they are in debt themselves. No, thank you! I do not take financial advice from broke people! #debtfreecommunity#debtfreejourney#broke#weird#daveramsey#studentloans#coworkers#advice#financialliteracy#financialfreedom#financialadvice#nothanks
