On February 1, 2015, I lost my grandfather. This is the second loss in my family within just a few months.

I will be absent from blogging for who knows how long, but I do plan to return. In the meantime, I’m going to spend time with my family and focus on what is truly important.

Until next time,


I’m going to take a break from my usual “reselling” posts to talk about one of the additional ways college students and/or college graduates can take to pay off their student loans. After all, paying off student loan debt is what this blog is about.

Back in September, I cashed in the remaining $893.42 I had left from my Americorps educational award in order to completely eliminate one of my student loans. If you read that particular post (found here), then you would know that my goal for the month of September was to put an additional $1,500 towards my student loans, but I wound up doing more — to the tune of $2,463.42. My original intentions were to save that $893.42 for a rainy day if I ever decided to go back to college to further my education or to take a class that interested me, but looking at how close I was to completely paying off a loan caused me to pull the trigger a little early and use the money to knock out debt.

While I hope that my usual readers get something out of this post, I should note that this post is actually geared towards those of you who are looking for additional ways to pay off (or down) your student loans. I have been getting a lot of search engine traffic to this blog from searches related to earning extra money to pay off student loans and I realize that I only talk about one of the ways to do that which is via reselling low cost items for profit.

Now, you have two options.
