In a follow-up clip, she said: “Today was payday so y’all know what that means.

“I am saving my three to six month expenses, also I’m saving up for my apartment so this cash has an assignment.

“In this video I did save envelopes 124 through 132 which was a total of $640 (£500), that’s how I save it, I group up envelopes.”

Impressively, Deja revealed in a YouTube channel how she managed to pay off $46,000 (£36,000) worth of debt in 11 months using a variety of methods.

In a video, she explained: “I started with my debts smallest to largest and focused on my number, what is my debt and what do I have to pay off?

“I was making sure I had side hustles and doing extra things and picking up another job if I have to.

“I wanted to be out of debt, I’d never lived a life out of debt.

“I’m trying to create a different life for myself.”
