10 things you can do to get extra money to pay off your debt💪🏻

Spiralling debt is a nightmare(especially when its a compounding debt) and most of the time our income barely covers our expenses and we don't have enough money to commit towards clearing our debt.
There are two ways to get more money to pay your debts. Increase your income or reduce your expenses.
Below are some ideas to achieve both. If you can find 10 different things then you could save at least £50 a month which is £600 a year. Not all of these will apply to you but if you adapt a few and make a few sacrifices you will reach your goals faster. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Decrease your expenses:✔

  • Cook at home instead of eating out (£30/week)
  • Premake your work lunch ( £25/week)
  • Swap meat for cheaper protein
  • Make a grocery shopping list and stick to it
  • Don't shop whilst hungry, you will overbuy
  • Use coupons for things you actually need to buy
  • Buy store brands
  • Drink water rather than soft drinks
