    Make upto £10 a day in December 2017 ~ everybody most welcome 30th Nov 17 at 11:42 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody



    This is the 124th month of this challenge, which was first started by Batgirl, in September 2007. A link here to the original thread as I am sure some of you are interested to read where it all began.

    Thanks to Batgirl for starting it, lynnejk and ALL posters, for helping us to keep the thread going. Thanks to previous challengers who used to run this thread too, Rawdinosaur, Emmaglet, Nat21luv, Monkeynut, Sweetpeas, Purpleroses, JesaRose, MizMir.

    I have decided to rename this challenge as reading posts, it seems to put people off thinking they HAVE TO make £10 a day.

    You don't.

    The original purpose of this challenge was to help people to try and make an extra £10 a day on top of their normal income to help things along. Ie paying off debt, making savings, paying for holidays, overpaying mortgages etc.

    That is exactly what this challenge is about, attempting to make extra income on top of your normal income to help you wherever you need it.

    People start the challenge by setting a goal of £1 a day. Then when they find they are smashing this regularly, they up it to £5 a day. Some of us gluttons for punishment go for £10 a day. It really is entirely upto you. We only ask you to post what your goal is to help you keep motivated. Some days you make more and some days you make less, but aim for extra at the end of the month.

    The idea is that everyone posts how they are making extra money and these shared ideas help all of us to learn new ways to help cut debt or earn/save money.

    What cannot be added:
    Wages from your main job

    What can be added:
    Overtime
    Income from a second job
    Daily clicks
    Interest
    Vouchers
    Mystery shopping
    And much, much more.

    This board moves pretty quickly, so be sure to subscribe and read it regularly. Below are some ideas to get you started and a great place to read when you're in need of inspiration.

    Sell your old books/DVDs/CDs/games here:
    Amazon.co.uk, play.com, webuybooks, zapper, CEX, MusicMagpie, and a few more too

    Ebay - a place to sell anything and everything. (You will be suprised at what sells!)

    Gumtree, Preloved, cquot, ebid, craigslist, vivastreet, netmums.com, trade-it , Friday ad, priceminster - these are all places you can sell items too.

    Survey sites
    - mysurvey and pinecone, prolific academic tend to be the best but there are many more it really depends on you finding the ones that work best for you - toluna, harris poll, valued opinions etc

    Join cashback sites like Topcashback and Quidco - type in surveys in the search engine and some will pay you to join up with them.

    Mobile phone to recycle? Try http://mobilevaluer.com/ but also check other selling sites like ebay, Facebook selling, gumtree, etc.

    etsy and folksy - If you enjoy making crafts why not have a go at selling them on etsy or folksy. They've been getting increasingly busier each year.

    Trying to find other ways to make money? Check out the Boost Your Income board. It is full of ideas, including survey companies and product testing.

    Want to help someone else out? Sign up through their referral on the referral board, and leave yours, so someone else can do the same for you.

    Keep reading for lots more ideas on how to make more money each month.

    This month's challenge is to try and make £310 (or any amount of course!).


    Thanks lynnejk for all your help with updating challengers list and all the support you give on this thread.

    Good luck everybody. Remember to post any questions or comments that you have, and let's go on encouraging each other throughout this month.

    SORRY TO HEAR THIS. hate buyers like that. we should be able to make them pay a fee for wasting our time. block both buyers so they don't do it again to you.

    Hey all - £5 Amazon voucher from swagbucks top bring me to £200. Waiting for the remainder of results before I add in MB.

    Another difficult day today.. teethy baby is still teethy and fighting sleep despite being very tired, which is very wearing. Still BF as teethy baby likes it for comfort and refuses my attempts to stop right now. Lying next to him finally asleep now, although I had to go to bed with him. Spent the last hour googling post natal depression, but concluded it's just a very bad day and this BF lark is just a lonely business, so just feeling sorry for myself really.

    Must get back to Swagbucking as I have been neglecting that recently. Done lots of surveys today as teethy baby fell asleep and trapped me for 4 hours (!) with just a laptop and the TV remote in reach. They got quite dull after a while though!

    Fingers crossed for some teeth soon as I am sick of this stage and want my chilled out, happy baby back.

    Hope everyone had a good money making day.

    Evening all. Well our house is a mad house at the moment. The 3 yr old has been to the pantomime with nursery today, first time for her, and that was followed by a visit to nursery by Santa Claus himself. Oh my she is excited! The 3 month old however has his first cold, and isn't feeding (or sleeping) particularly well as a result.

    £16.38 MB'ing for me today.

    Happens every year, but I sat down and watched the semi-final of the Apprentice this evening, and then spent a couple of hours figuring out how that could be me next year. All just one big pipe dream. For now I'll settle for my £10+ a day MSE challenge

    How is everybody else getting on with the Tombola Arcade advent calendar?

    I'm only 1 away from £20 or £100. The £100 would be very nice!! I got the £5 bonus early on, but had to wager it, and ended up with nothing from that.

    I great day for me today - put £10 on Jackpot & left £175 up
    £6 from Pinecone credited today.
    Another voucher code for £12 off Sainsbury shop so have used that to stock up xmas essentials.

    Well and truly smashed my target which is nice as I thought 'd struggle this month
    Lets hope next year goes well, as we now need to get the debt right down and try to save for a mortgage deposit alongside paying rent

    Just checking in really, but nothing to report money wise! Had a bit of a chilled day and just dipped into a few money making activities. Needed a break, but back to it tomorrow.

    Nearly there for valued opinions and so need to get on with those surveys so I can cash out there.

    Although I don't check that much, I am sure I am getting nowhere near as many steers as I used to on Vypr. I used to be able to cash out twice a month and now I am lucky if I can do that once a month. Is it just me because I don't check enough?

    Oh - totally forgot, but I did cash out the princely sum of £1 from Curious cat..
