    ~The Final MAKE 10 A DAY in December Challenge for 2011 ~ Everybody Welcome 28th Nov 11 at 11:00 PM
    Hello to all newbies and regulars and welcome to the final 10 a day challenge of 2011!!!! .

    This challenge first started in September 2007, so this will be the 50th Month that this challenge has been going . So thanks Batgirl for starting it and Sweetpeas, Purpleroses, JesaRose and MizMir, who also keep the thread going.

    I know this first post is long, but please read it as it gives tips and info on how this challenge works!

    If you're new to the challenge don't be scared - here's how it works:

    The aim of this challenge is to make 10 extra a day everyday for the month. A lot of people think this is impossible but it can and has been done (and in some cases some show offs have even doubled or tripled the monthly challenge).

    If you feel 10 is too much why not start at 5 or if you're brave join those who aim for 20 a day! Anything extra you make is great so set whatever target you think you can manage.

    The idea is that everyone posts how they are making extra money or saving 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 at work, income from a 2nd job, savings in shopping, daily clicks, sales, interest, vouchers, mystery shopping...the list is endless.

    Feel free to add any extra money earned (above normal wages) or any money you saved when out shopping. For daily clicks and sites like quidco it's upto you when you add the money earnt there. Some add it when an amount tracks others when it's paid out - it's your challenge so it is upto you what you want to count and when you want to count it.

    This board moves so fast so here's some ideas for people to make money. (Click the blue words (links) for some shortcuts to threads on each subject):

    Sell your old books/DVDs/CDs/games here:
    Amazon,, Green Metropolis is for books only.

    Amazon Trade in, trade in your old books

    Ebay - a place to sell anything and everything.

    Gumtree, Preloved, cquot, ebid, craigslist, vivastreet,, trade-it ,

    Also, join topcashback and Quidco - type in surveys in the search engine and some will pay you to join up with them. famous for shop and scan. They may also ask you to join their other panels :

    Shop and Scan gives 1100 points a week, plus a bonus 500 if you upload a receipt.
    Food on the Go - upto 5000 points a week (200pts for the first 20txts sent weekly - none after that. Plus 1000 points just for sending. If you have no submissions, you can also just txt to say that and still get 500 pts).
    Petrol Panel - 2500 points per month for all petrol submissions.

    Daily clicks - EagerLearner's thread - PM and ask for her guide. Although clicks take time to add up it's worth it in the end if you have the time to spare.

    Mystery shopping - Get paid to be a mystery shopper!

    Up your income board - full of great ideas!

    Challenges for 2012
