    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 126th 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.

    Link to previous thread.

    So who wants to kick 2018 into a financially working for you year?

    Join this challenge and let's make those bank accounts fat, mortgages paid off, holidays paid off, savings account grow fatter, debts paid off and much much more!!!

    Nothing much happening here Mike except general plodding along and the usual couple of days tips to add...

    9 for mon and tues

    Matched betting is still something Id like to investigate but not sure where to start really and need some days off work to really look into it. Have a week off coming up so might set some time aside to do some research.

    Hey all.. not much happening here, just getting a bit overwhelmed by life at the moment and just need some time really to refocus what I need to do... (not likely!).

    Anyway, I did go a bit mad on the MB'ing over the weekend and early this week as I felt I was falling behind and should have tried harder. Made 132.43 and now over my target for the month (but still telling myself it isn't good enough.. I will learn to give myself a break one day!).

    KM - I'll pop you a PM, probably tomorrow/Friday with some tips, or at least places to start researching. If I don't, nudge me. The term 'Matched Betting' itself puts people off. They instantly assume it's gambling. It's not. Providing you take your time, and complete each offer slowly, it's completely risk free, with guaranteed profits. Of course there are elements that can become gambling - I won't discuss that here, and you'll understand what I mean once you research it, but there's absolutely no necessity to do those offers/bets if you don't want to. I very rarely do anything that isn't 100% risk free. Any way, that's enough of that talk

    Well done Jess, that's a great amount! Don't over do it though (I'm one to speak, I know!). Make sure you find time for yourself, and if you're making 100+ on MB'ing or anything else, then give yourself a break and use some of it to treat yourself.

    Closing in on that target Shariann - keep going!

    Early night for me...I've an all-day meeting tomorrow to look forward to. The joys!

    47.73 today, MB'ing.
