    Make upto £10 a day in November 2017 ~ everybody most welcome 30th Oct 17 at 9:20 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody



    This is the 12 3rd 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 £300 (or any amount of course!).
    lynnejk is assisting me and will create the challengers list and update it.

    She will also be answering any questions she can help with and here for general advice. Having been a challenger for a while, she knows her stuff. Thank you lynnejk for your help.

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

    Thanks Aesop. I've never really got to grips with Swagbucks, but will read the useful info you post on it and give it a proper go... I logged in and have 330 points, so I am not starting at 0 this month! Will see if I can cash out today by following the guides!

    So I factory reset my laptop lastnight/this morning. it seems to be behaving itself now.

    I need to earn money to buy an external hard drive as it was hard work taking everything off onto dvds.


    fingers crossed it remains functioning.

    Going to have to give up for the night, but I made it to 605 total.. just 15 short of cashing out to Amazon. Will definitely be able to cash out tomorrow. Was hard work, although I actually tried a survey which I qualified for and had a reasonable SB amount which was unusual. Tomorrow might be harder!

    Out of interest, does anyone regularly make £10 a day without overtime, matched betting or selling? I need to rethink my plan as my selling is coming to an end, although time will definitely be a factor.
    Originally posted by QueenJess
    I don't get overtime, do MB or sell anything except the very occasional box of books - though probably will try to sell some 'stuff' nearer the time we leave.

    Over the years I have made my money from mystery shopping, surveys, haggling, saving vouchers, getting discounts on everything I possibly can and using store-cards and MOCs. I don't make a regular £10 a day as such, but it usually adds up to making that over the month - though have missed it a couple of times

    Well done on all the money-making everyone

    I've nothing to report today but am just a gnat's snitch off some pay-outs so hoping they come good this month.

    Hope you all have a great Wednesday
