    **Make 10 a day February 2013 Challenge** 31st Jan 13 at 6:09 PM
    and welcome to all newbies and regulars.

    This is the 66th month of this challenge, which was first started by Batgirl, in September 2007 Thanks to Batgirl for starting it, Nat21luv, Monkeynut, Sweetpeas, Purpleroses, JesaRose and MizMir for keeping the thread going.

    I know this first post is long, but please read as it give tips 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 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, daily clicks, interest, vouchers, mystery shopping...the list is endless.

    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/links on each subject):

    Sell your old books/DVDs/CDs/games here:

    Play, CEX, zapper, we buy books, Amazon Trade In.

    Have old mobiles/laptops/cameras/satnavs/consoles? Trade them in here:

    http://mobilevaluer.com/

    Sell everything else at Ebay, carboots, jumble sales.

    Can you craft? Take a look at "etsy and folksy

    Collect points while shopping online for those sites you cannot get cashback for.

    www.nectar.com , http://www.treatstreet.boots.com/ref/pghome_nu

    Sign up for https://www.quidco.com/sign-in/ and http://www.topcashback.co.uk/home

    If you have decent clothes to sell,try https://marketplace.asos.com/help/selling or you might want to try http://www.cash4clothes.co.uk/

    Ink Cartridges to recycle? Try these - http://www.therecyclingfactory.com/sell-ink-cartridges

    Got foreign coins you will no longer use? Cash them in here
    http://www.cash4coins.co.uk/

    Apply to join the Shop and Scan panel here

    http://www.volunteer4panels.com/

    Trying to find ways to Up your Income? the board is full of ideas, including survey companies and product testing.

    Want to help someone else out? Sign up through their referral on the referral board, and leave yours, so someone else can do the same for you

    Keep reading for lots more ideas on how to make more money each month

    This month's challenge is to try and make 280.

    Good luck everybody.

    I have tried to put some useful links on the first post. There is so much information out there, that it is difficult to fit it all in the first post.

    If anyone has any questions about anything, like how much do shop and scan pay? How do I join consumer pulse, pinecone, etc. just ask

    What is trending this month?

    Apptrailers on mobile phones. Can be found at google play store.

    Qustodian can be found at google play store.

    Swagbucks can be found on Up your Income board.

    Found a new app today it's called appxpert and it pays you in paypal, amazon or iTunes to download apps and review them. Not sure how many are available each day as I've only just downloaded it. Nice low payout though of 5 for paypal. Just got 20p for 2 mins work. Looks like it will be around 5-10 a month for 5 mins a day.

    Anyway, could put me down for a mahussive 30 a day please Aesop. Determined to get a wedge in!
