Debt can weigh on you and affect your ability to move forward with your plans. So here are some creative ways to clear that debt quicker…
1: Yard Sale
Round up all the household things you don’t need anymore and have a yard sale. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. If you find some individual valuable items then you might choose to sell those online so you can reach a greater audience.
2: Coin Jar
Save all your spare change and put it in a jar. When it is full, take it to the bank and make an additional payment off the debt of your choice.
Not just for obsessive couponers! Use coupons to save on your everyday shopping, then bank the money you saved against your debts.
4: Hire Yourself
Instead of paying someone to cut the grass or clean your kitchen, do it yourself and use the money you would have spent as an extra debt payment.
5: Paid Opinions
Sign up to take online surveys for money, then put your earnings against your debts.
6: Bank The Extras
Do you still get birthday money from Great Aunt Muriel, or a Christmas bonus from work? Don’t blow it on junk you don’t need, put it against your debt.
7: Cash In Your Talent
Do you have a hobby that could make you some money? Then sell your services to the community.
