    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.

    Hi, can I join again, please? I haven't been able to update much for the last 2 months, but I'm very grateful to everyone for the ideas and hope to take more part this month.

    I think I'll just aim for £5 a day this month, so £150 total.

    Good luck for November everyone.

    Did you all read Martins newsletter last Thursday about the bank account that pays to switch?

    I had allready done this with tsb a few months ago. But if any of you haven't switched banks lately...... Might be worth getting a second account.

    Just seen that offer is finished but worth having a look at some of the other offers.

    I'll go for £10 a day please and will see where I get to.. might be a tall order, but lets see.

    Still working on sales this month to offload the rest of my pile of things. Got a load of very low value items, so unlikely to make £300 with that and will need to supplement with surveys. Will see how the month goes. After this, I will probably need to lower my target as hopefully I will have finished clearing out everything and won't have any sales to supplement my income!

    Hello and welcome to everyone for the November 's challenge.

    Some of the phone apps are not currently working. I have left them up in case they do start working again but namely people. Ios, Shopprize, luckyleftovers are currently not available on app stores or not redeeming rewards.

    to be honest, I didn't read it in detail, most of these accounts yes, would like you to close your old account. But you don't have to with all to get the new account. Worth reading t and c if interested in some of the new bank switching offers.

    yes iphone users are complaining of a white screen.

    vypr have a solution on their facebook page


    vypr

    There seem to have been a few gremlins in the latest update. Please could you try the following:

    1) Delete/uninstall the app from your phone (but donít worry you wonít lose your points)
    2) Then, shut down and restart your phone (this part is essential as it that usually helps clear all the caches)
    3) Go back to the app store and download the VYPR app again.

    And let me know if youíre still having problems.
    Thanks, Michelle

    Morning all,

    I have £13.46 to add:

    £10 for 2 £5 buy it now items on Ebay - a top from years ago I never wore and a battered board game.
    £3 for a top I put on a local facebook selling group after wearing it last Thursday and realising it was far too big for me.
    46p from Qmee searches.

    Nice start for me, anything a bonus x
