    ~Make upto £10 a day in September 2017 ~ - everybody most welcome 31st Aug 17 at 10:30 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody



    Happy anniversary Batgirl, your original forum thread is now 10 years old Same age as my DS this year.

    This is the 121st 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.

    A must for all newbies if you are not already doing any of these:

    1. Apply to PineconeResearch here. They pay a guaranteed £3 per survey. You are never screened out, they don't send out lots, but when you get one, you know you will be paid within a few days.

    http://mysurvey123.com/pinecone-research/

    2. Apply to Shop and Scan - this is not the same as Nielsen Home Shopping Scanner. Shop and Scan is a hand held scanner, that you scan the barcodes of your shopping, you are paid 1100 points weekly for scanning, nothing if you are on holiday. You can cash out for various vouchers at 10000 points. Not much work for a good reward. They also send emails with questionnaires that are worth extra points.

    https://www.volunteer4panels.com/

    3. Quidco and topcashback toolbar notifiers - a must have for those who forget to check for cashback when browsing online before buying.

    http://www.quidco.com/cashback-reminder

    http://www.topcashback.co.uk/cashback-notifier

    4. Printable coupon thread

    For every Steer you complete elsewhere (e.g. at home): 20 - 50 VYPR points.

    Redeeming your VYPR points.

    When you reach 10,000 VYPR points, you can easily redeem these points for £5, paid via PayPal, or you can also donate a proportion of your VYPR points to charity.

    Happy 10th anniversary to the thread. I don't think Batgirl envisaged the thread going for as long as it has over the years and evolved so much.

    Thank you Batgirl for your first every inspirational post and for keeping it going for as long as you did.

    So we shall once again have a couple of challenges as it's the anniversary month of the thread.

    1) Selling challenge with a twist - last month we had an ebay challenge thread, will have to wait for results from last month, once we have all totalled our amounts.

    This month.... what is the most unusual item you can sell and for how much? You have until the end of the month to find something and sell it.


    2) 1500 posts this month challenge! well it is the anniversary month thread, so let's get posting peeps. Don't be shy.

    Morning all - thank you Aesop, Lynne, Carbootcrazy for the thread and for all the encouragement and inspiration. Thank you everyone else for sharing your ways of making money - which helps as I go along.

    Loving the most unusual item challenge - last month for me this was a sporron and some 'garters' that hold socks up when you wear a kilt!

    I have a house full of clutter to shift so we will see what the most extraordinary thing among this is!

    My target is £300 or £10 a day.

    This will hopefully come from selling and mystery shops. I'm not big on surveys - I don't have the patience. I should also get a little bit from Top Cashback and I need to find out about cashback and interest on my Santander 123 account, I'm going to add that for the last 2 months as well when I manage to sort out accessing my account as it hasn't been added so far.

    I'm off to a slow start as I have lots of work to do and am going away for a night tomorrow but I need to list loads of things on eBay and Facebook. I have £12.25 confirmed as a mystery shopping payout on the 10th so far but have a few jobs lined up.

    Good luck all xx
