    **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:

    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. ,

    Sign up for and

    If you have decent clothes to sell,try or you might want to try

    Ink Cartridges to recycle? Try these -

    Got foreign coins you will no longer use? Cash them in here

    Apply to join the Shop and Scan panel here

    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.

    that sounds fab they are getting their hands into so many pies at the moment. Just looked on their website, they are going to take over Arbitron too, who I currently do mobile with, they look at what websites I visit on my mobile etc. and I get paid £5 a month for it

    But here is an e-mail address you can contact them on and they will let you know how to access your account to see how you are getting paid!

    A good start with £13.00 from some clothes I took to C***4C*****.

    Going to go for £5 a day this month please as I wont have much time - working some weekends which will bump up next month but for Feb I've managed £15 already, £10 debs voucher from consumer pulse and £5 amazon from SBs.

    Well done to everyone kicking off with great ebay sales - might have a rummage around the house tomorrow for inspiration!
