    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 - rarely use QuidCo, but will remember to do this daily. 2 prize draw entries for me today.

    By the way, today's clues are Thomas Cook and Made.com.

    If anybody is struggling, as I was, try using your phone to browse to QuidCo.com. It didn't seem to do anything when I searched on my laptop, but as soon as I tried on my phone the prizes popped up.

    Hi all, thanks for the new thread. Sorry I haven't been around much, struggling somewhat, I love my job but can't stand the attitude of some of the people I work with, and having a hard time - management aren't interested and I don't know what to do. It's affecting my mental health, and I am trying to work out how I can give up work!! (I wish)

    Still, I'm in for the new challenge this month, aiming for £7 a day, total of £210. I've had £3.47 from Qmee, so I'm off the mark!

    Good luck everyone

    Ok bit late off the mark but can I rejoin for November please.

    Oct went so well I want to up may target to £25 a day, so £750 total.

    MB £98.62 and writing £25.52 so far so a great start.

    Unfortunately at the end of last month OH went to try to fix the leaky sink waste pipe again-we had been keeping the kitchen going till we saved up the cash to get it sorted. Unfortunately a u-bend change then led to the old waste on the sink crumbling away and coming off in his hand.

    We couldn't get a new sink the same dimensions-old was was weird shape and very old. Also once sink was out the worktop was rotten and crumbled away as well. Ordered new worktops from a brill local supplier who cuts them to size-joints and everything.

    Unfortunately the worktop removal showed us how rotten the cupboard carcasses were and black mold down the back of the wall!!!

    So queue ripping out cupboards and washing up in the bath for a weel .

    My lovely Sister and Mum both have alot more cash than us (don't begrudge them at all we choose to have 4 kids, Sis has a career she is brill at) BUT they both immediately offered some cash to help towards it so that was £150, they also both said do we want B & Q vouchers for crimbo as well. THEN inlaws heard about it as as we had recently sorted some stuff out for them fuel savings and helped then claim back £1000, gave OH another £200.

    TBH we are gobsmacked how lovely all the family have been although I feel a bit bad taking their money, even tho if I had it and they needed it would do the same for them.

    Even with the cash off them and budgeting carefully we still had to use up alot of what I managed to make extra in October.

    Still walls treated for mold and allowed to dry out, then painted to seal. New bottom cupboards in and done holes for hob and sink in worktops. OH is out working at mo but oven is in so I can use that and hopefully sink and hob in tonight or tomorrow morning.

    Just doing some drawer insides myself. So far looks good and is so nice. Will need to do the tiles and top cupboards as we go along and cash comes in, and could have done with waiting till the new year, but hopefully should look good for crimbo.

    Most expensive ubend ever tho

    Trying to see it as doing us a favour as we do tend to prevaricate rather than getting on with things, now no choice lol.
