    ~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.

    Well done! Nice to be up and running so soon

    Viewers Logic sounds interesting. Can I be nosy and ask what it is please, it's a new one on me?

    Thanks again for posting this thread! I completely failed last month so put me down for 10 a day this month. Prolific Academic sent me 30.36 this morning so that is a good start.

    Carbootcrazy, yes, you can sell your unusual item anywhere.


    Think we will take a group vote at end of month on who's is the best.

    You have sold some pretty unusual stuff in the past.....


    How's the postcards coming along?

    So cashed out 5 sb this morning and got an email hours later to say paid


    Love it

    Wish swagbucks could do that all the time.

    I also won 1000 swagbucks, thanks to a wonderful Facebook group and the generosity of swagbucks. It is the first time the group has run a competition like this and it was really y good.

    Not made anything else so far.

    Got a busy weekend ahead, sorting out DH business again. Then need to sort Scouts accounts too.

    I've forgotten what I was going to say lol.
