I used to do it how you're doing it when I first started this challenge (though I can't even remember how long ago that was ) but started losing track, and just taking forever to keep track of that I realised it was more hassle then it's worth, so just add things when I actually have the money.
So for example I wouldn't add 1 or 2 from Consumer Pulse when I entered the products, but would just add the 10 when I get the voucher.
Sooooo much easier (especially with sites where you have to work out the monetary equivalent of vouchers, which can vary as different values of vouchers work out different values in point etc etc!

This is how most of us do it, so whilst it's totally up to you what you want to do yourself, the way the majority do it is much much easier and quicker. (Even if it does feel a bit heartening for the first few weeks until things are up to redemption level!

Hi Sampsun

It is a great motivation, i never realised how much i make from sites until i started aiming for 100 a month, now it really motivates me when the survey invites come in and i have already ordered two vouchers this month

If you need any help, ideas, referrals then just ask, the guys on here are great x

Thanks for the replies regarding how you all keep track

I think i'll carry on doing it how i am for December, then in January i'll make a fresh start and do it once i receive the money/voucher as doing it the way i am for more than a couple of months will get incredibly confusing.

Thanks guys

I hope someone else enjoys it
sorry to hear about your loss SanFran

It is sad letting go of something sentimental but you know that the next person will enjoy it and a lot of love went into making it, so that will be shared. xx

it depends what policy you took out

haha sorry I had kind of misunderstood - I too only count things when I 'cash out' as the add 10phere and there on onepoll for example would drive me mad...

however I do add them when I cash out as long as I know i'll receive it so paypal I would consider to be 'safe'...

I have a shiny (well actually rather scruffy) 5 to add from the sale of some earrings... and found 5p when tidying some little pots in the kitchen...

total up to 100.95

Hugs to all of you, and xxxx San Fran. xxxx

I still have no money
Doing awfully this month, which is typical as it's the month we seem to need the most!
Doing a few Ebay listings, just 3 and 5 days ones mainly to try and get rid of a few more bits before Christmas, but I don't think people are wanting to spend too much money on non Christmas things at the moment so not holding out much hope really

Ebay free listings was a complete waste of time for me, the internet here has been playing up lately, so i have hardly had chance to get online all weekend. I did manage to get my relists done

Monkeynut - I'm feeling the same with regards to ebay, not selling anything I have listed at the moment.. think everyone is just looking to spend their money on Christmas items. Trying to think of where else I can make money this month..

The 17.67 refund from BT has landed in the bank, so adding that, even though technically it's something I paid them in the first place - we haven't even been with BT for almost a year, and I'm doing awfully this month, so seeing as that's what made me finally sort it out, I'm adding it anyway
And 3 vouchers through from Pinecone.

Oh and
REDEEMED ON YOUGOV!!!!!!!!!!!
Not even going to look back and see when I actually joined, as it's my first redemption, but at least it's all added up at last. Don't know how long it takes to hit my bank account, so will wait before I add it here, hopefully this month though or I may well struggle to make double figures
