Even if it is only for a short term the additional money that you will earn and can mark off against your debt can have a huge impact on the time that it will take you to reduce and eliminate your loans.

You might be able to refinance some of your loans for a shorter term by being able to make bigger monthly payments.

The additional money gives you more control to budget better and to make the most of discount opportunities and interest rebates for early repayments of loans.

If you are already working long hours and can’t possibly fit in an additional job or more hours at your current job them maybe it is time to start looking around for other employment that pays you more. There are always other opportunities and even a small increase in income might be all you need to get over the next hurdle.
