    Make 2016 in 2016 23rd Dec 15 at 6:52 PM
    Hey Guys!


    We saw mennie's post back in 2012 encouraging everyone to make 2012 and Its been going ever since! I've decided to recreate the challenge for 2016 as last year it massively helped me to be more creative and get out of debt!

    So, the challenge here is to make 2016 in 2016. Whether that's from savings or by boosting your income somehow, it all counts!

    mennie suggested setting up a spreadsheet to keep track of your earnings using the following categories...
    • Selling - Ebay, Amazon Market Place, Music Magpie, Local Paper, Boot Fair, Swapping, Green Metropolis
    • Surveys - You Gov, one poll, Pure Profile
    • Paid to Click - Archer Fish, Pigsback
    • Cashback - Top Cashback, R Points, Free Fivers, Quidco, FatCheese, My Shopping Rewards, Misc
    • Mystery Shopping - Grass Roots, Gap Buster, Retail Eyes
    • Freebies - Applied for, Blagged, Multibuys, Chance, Try me free
    • Coupons - Applied for, Blagged, chance
    • Loyalty - Club Card, Nectar, local garden centre, east coast, cafe nero, advantage cards
    • Complaints - Train delay, voucher, cheque, product
    • Trials - Tesco, Boots
    • Misc - unfranked stamps, overtime, bonus, competition wins, money found on floor, Interest
    I'm happy to keep track of those signing up to the challenge below! Let me know if you would like to join and happy money making!

    This is very inspiring. Never done matched betting but have looked at it on and off for two years without taking the plunge.

    7.53 from Topcashback and 25 gift voucher from work for taking part in testing. Used my voucher to redeem against Christmas presents :-)
    #27 2016 in 2016 = 763.61

    #42 2 Savers Club = 160

    [I]*Savers Club not included in overall 2016 savings until the tin is opened and my estimates have been confirmed later in the year.
