5 Side Hustles That Can Help You Pay Off Debt

5-side-hustlesMany 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 sports jerseys and coffee mugs.

Selling T-Shirts

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 make thousands of dollars on it. Benny Hsu has made over $100,000 selling t-shirts. That is motivation right there.

Online Surveys

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. I’ve collected quite a few gift cards from Swagbucks over the years.  Check them out today here.


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 and social media assistants.  If you need a freelance writer, feel free to contact me.

Part-time job

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 5 side hustles that can help you pay off debt were selling things on eBay, selling t-shirts, online surveys, freelancing, 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 it can happen.

  1. For three years I worked a part time job in retail in order to pay off debt and save money. I was in my early to mid 20s so I actually enjoyed the job. At this point though, there are so many non-traditional ways to make extra money. I don’t think I would go back to a retail job.

  2. I sell things on ebay and Craigslist on a regular basis to clear out the house and get a little folding money.

    If you’re feeling bold, you can always get into storage auctions to build your inventory. Just get ready for a lot of work and a lot of runs to the dump!

  3. Great tips Jason,
    I’ve actually tried all of these at one point in time. I sold a camera on eBay. Never tried to make it an actual business though. I tried to start a t-shirt company when I was younger. I’ve tried surveys but found them to be a waste of time. I’m currently trying freelancing and have certainly had my share of part-time jobs. Thanks for sharing!
