Well Here I am again after vowing I would opt out of Decembers challenge. Please put me down for 10.00 a day. Thank you.

And I am out of the starting blocks with a bit of a bonus
Had to purchase some new jeans as mine were all too big on me
Paid 2.95 in a charity shop as I always doWhen I went to wash them 15 fell out of the pocket So dilemma do I return the money to the shop or do I add it too my total ? What would you all do ?

I don't think you can beat being sat at home in a warm cosy house, with pyjamas still on because im not moving out today and making money

158 made from ebay so far today still got a few bits ending later but no bids so far, and only a few watchers.

Mavvymoo, I'd keep it

Thanks for all your ideas on my 15 find
I will keep it but will donate 4 pairs of nice jeans which do not fit me to them to sell. That way I will feel better about it and they will get at least 12-15 for them.Karma and all that
Oh and another 10.00 from e*ay.
All in all an excellent start to the month

Debt free and Mortgage free thank you to all for your encouragement and advice

Mavvy: I would keep it, I used to volunteer at a charity shop and it was ingrained into all the volunteers to check everything. Including bags with spiders. It's the shop's own fault. Also regarding giving your jeans, make sure that all the buttons on and no stain at all, my old shop refused to sell any jeans with faults.

Nimbo: When I was at uni (last year) I used to use surveys and other activities as short breaks to my study. But good luck with all your uni work!

I have 25 sitting in a survey site which I can't get at because they aren't changing my details. It's driving me up the wall!
Aims for 2014: Complete up to AAT level 3, save 7K and stop fearing learning to drive.
