Tired of reading blogs about how someone paid off 60,000 dollars in 3 months? If you’re like me, I don’t even make 60,000 dollars in a year.
I live in the fast growing city of Nashville. Rent is off the chain. I have a roommate and we live conservatively in a suburb, outside of town. We split a 1,400 a dollar a month apartment. I spend around 500 dollars a month in student loans and 310 dollars on a car loan payment. I pay normal stuff like insurance, phone, Netflix, internet. Annually I pull in about 42,000 (with my recent 6% raise) at my full time job. I spend my money very conservatively and I’m on the struggle bus with trying to pay anything more than a minimum payment.
All last year, I worked a second job to make an extra 400-500 dollars a month. This allowed me to payoff a credit card and one of my student loans. The downside to working two regular jobs is physical and mental strain. I was 100 percent tired all the time.
This year I have been on my side hustle game.
Side Hustles I currently use.

These are my current side hustles. I babysit and pet sit privately, not through any apps or websites. I make much less money regularly than I made with a part time job, but now I have much more time. In June, I made around 200 extra dollars with my side hustles. Throughout this blog I plan on trying other side hustles, investments and and ways to become debt free.
