Can I join? Only £5 a day to start off with though.

I've fallen off the savings wagon in the last year and really must get my bum back on it.

I've signed up for Pinecone today. Started using TCB religiously and I'm doing my surveys so hopefully I'll meet my target.

Morning

Just thought Id pop in and update where I am so far:

£4.87 leftover in bank account I have decided to use for this challenge.
£5 money saved by not buying anniversary cards
£6.85 left from what we had budgeted for meal.

Also OH had his staff night out and came back with most of the money he went out with so will add that when I can manage to get it off him!

10 items on eBay ending on Friday getting lots of bids and watchers so that should do quite well, mainly bnwt tags stuff and a few plus size bits from when I was bigger and I know they always do well. I've got the dentist this morning and then someone coming to look at some damp in house (we rent) this evening, and in between need to get stock for business but will try and maybe find another 5 or so items to get listed on the bay. Once I've got a fair load on there I'll be able to do relists as the bare minimum at least! Not in work tomorrow either so may look into some mystery shopping then. How much are people making a month on these at the moment if you don't mind me asking?

Woo hoo off the starting blocks today with £15 Amazon voucher for helping out at uni the other week which was a nice surprise...

Saved £4 at the £ shop...

(And got another £2 off voucher but won't count it til i've used it...)

saved £8 on wine this weekend and got free delivery from Iceland and I bought only the win and some pretzels so I didn't have to get a taxi... (I'm not counting the taxi as a saving - but I couldn't have walked with 6 bottles of wine, and all the rest of my shopping...)

I'm going to have to take out a line of my signature to update

I have a sale of Ebay which I need to post tomorrow - only a 99p job but it all counts...

good luck to all, and it's nearly Christmas...

Total so far £27...
Third year here I come!!!!!

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!
Thanks for this yes the jeans are absolutely perfect but not as nice as the ones I got with the £15 in And there is no spiders in the pockets so dont worry
