6 Side Hustles That Can Help You Pay Off Debt
Many people are in some type of debt. Whether it’s student loan or credit card debt, people are feeling its burden. It doesn’t have to be forever, though. Many people are taking charge of their situations and are paying off that debt with different side hustles. Today I want to share with you 6 side hustles that can help you pay off debt.
The 1st side hustle that can help you pay off your debt is to sell items on eBay. I’ve been selling on eBay for a few years now. People will buy almost anything. Anyone can sell on eBay. It’s free to setup an account. When deciding on what to sell all you have to do is check their website and do a little research. Some items that have sold for me are old Air Jordan shoes and coffee mugs.
Selling t-shirts is another side hustle that you can do to make some extra money. In the past, you would have to spend money on designs, printing, and inventory. Now, more than ever it’s easier to design and sell shirts for free. There are websites such as Teespring and Spreadshirt, which allow you to upload or create a design and sell it. You can make money on every shirt that sells. If you have a design that goes viral, you can possibly make thousands of dollars on it.
The third side hustle that you can try is online surveys. While you will not get rich by completing them, you can make a couple of hundred dollars per month if you work hard at it. There are several legit survey sites to choose from such as Swagbucks or Amazon Mechanical Turk.
Freelancing is another side hustle that can help you pay off debt. The sky could be the limit for you when you freelance. The more you work, the more money you can make. It’s that simple. There are several types of freelancers out there such as writers, photographers, web designers, WordPress support, and social media assistants.
Helping people with their yard work is the fifth side hustle that you can do. Not everyone likes to or can do their own yard work. If you own a lawn mower and some lawn tools, you could be in business. You can advertise your services on Craigslist or your social media accounts.
The final side hustle that can help you pay off your debt is getting a part-time job. If you work a 9-5 job, you can work a part-time job on weeknights or on the weekends. There are always food delivery driver and restaurant staff opportunities available. If you need to pay off debt, you should check out some of those part-time jobs today.
To summarize, the 6 side hustles that can help you pay off debt were selling things on eBay, selling t-shirts, online surveys, freelancing, doing yard work, and getting a part-time job. If you are in debt, realize that you don’t have to be there forever. It will take some hard work, but you can be debt free.
Have you tried any of these side hustles before?

I have been doing online surveys to offset the cost of my manicures. I just spend a few minutes each day with it and I can do surveys in my jammies! lol It would take a lot more effort to make “real” money, but as a way to offset a $50-$70 a month expense, it works well.
That’s a pretty good idea to help offset something that you enjoy so you don’t have to pay for it. Nice job!
All of these are good ones! If I needed a side hustle, I would probably start a painting business. The people who paint houses around here make bank!
Nice ideas on side hustles. I am doing freelancing and would probably consider selling T-shirts as this generates lots of income. Yay! So excited to make a design. Thanks for sharing those T-shirt design tools.
Thanks for sharing. I’ve thought about doing some of these and just never got enough motivation (I actually used to do some surveys but those fell by the wayside). Maybe it’s time to revisit and make a few extra bucks.
I’d really like to beef up my freelance writing portfolio. One thing to note is that freelancing online is very difficult to break into because so many people want to do it. Be ready to put in the work to constantly pitch potential clients.
I’m not a huge fan of online surveys because the hourly wage does not seem to cut it for many people, although there are always exceptions. The other side hustles are all great ideas though. I especially like the T-Shirt enterprise because it has the possibility of turning into something passive if you build up an online shop. With Spring here, yardwork has the possibility of being something quick to get somebody started. I have a friend from high school who turned this into a full-time business!
