    Make 10 a day October 2016 Everybody Welcome 30th Sep 16 at 10:43 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody


    This is the 110th month of this challenge, which was first started by Batgirl, in September 2007.

    Thanks to Batgirl for starting it, lynnejk, Rawdinosaur, Emmaglet, Nat21luv, Monkeynut, Sweetpeas, Purpleroses, JesaRose, 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. Some of the content has changed

    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, over and over. 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.

    It also doesn't have to be 10 each and every day - some days you make more and some days you make less, but aim for 300 extra at the end of the month.

    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
    Income from a second job
    Daily clicks
    Interest
    Vouchers
    Mystery shopping
    And much, much more.

    This board moves pretty quickly, so be sure to subscribe and read it regularly. Below are some ideas to get you started and a great place to read when you're in need of inspiration.

    Sell your old books/DVDs/CDs/games here:
    Amazon.co.uk, play.com, webuybooks, zapper, CEX

    Ebay - a place to sell anything and everything.

    Gumtree, Preloved, cquot, ebid, craigslist, vivastreet, netmums.com, trade-it , Friday ad, priceminster - these are all places you can sell items too.

    Survey sites - mysurvey and pinecone, prolific academic tend to be the best but there are many more it really depends on you finding the ones that work best for you - toluna, harris poll, valued opinions etc

    also join topcashback and Quidco - type in surveys in the search engine and some will pay you to join up with them.

    Sealed Pot Challenge 2016 - basically you put your change into a jar over the year so in December you should have a nice pot of money to help

    Mobile phone to recycle? try Martin's mobile recycling comparison site first to see where you may get the best deal!

    Music Magpie - have cds/dvds you haven't been able to sell at carboots or online. Try your luck here. Is you do sell your albums/dvds be sure to go via quidco to get a few more pennies

    etsy and folksy - If you enjoy making crafts why not have a go at selling them on etsy or folksy. They've been getting increasingly busier each year.

    Collect Boots points while shopping online.

    Don't forget to search for your online shop at nectar.com before you buy, and earn nectar points for buying online, including ebay.

    Trying to find other ways to make money? Check out the Boost Your Income board. It 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 300 (or any amount of course!) lynnejk is assisting me and will create the challengers list and update it. She will also be answering any questions she can help with and here for general advice. Having been a challenger for a while, she knows her stuff Thank you lynnejk for your help.

    Good luck everybody. Remember to post any questions or comments that you have, and let's go on encouraging each other throughout this month.

    We can and we will do it. Who's in?

    Evening everyone

    Not sure if I have updated this month so excuse me if I am repeating myself. 34.94 from topcashback, 1.50 Shopmium and 7.50 MOC from sainsburys so total so far is 43.94.

    Think my mortgage is finally sorted and should have the money next week so will be able to clear credit cards and loan, finish work on house and sort out some other stuff and repayments will be less than half what I have been paying for the last year! I am so excited but still can't quite believe it's finally happening - will feel better once funds are in my account.

    I am determined to keep on with the money making though and not be complacent or frivolous although I am thinking I might book a weekend away for me and OH. Things have been very difficult for the last few months and I think it would be good for us to get away for a couple of days.

    Hope to check in a bit more often from now on although I do read the thread but feel I should contribute a bit more and try to be more helpful to my fellow money makers like Aesop, Lynne and CBC. I totally agree that it is so nice on here and everyone is friendly and not at all judgemental like they can be on some other threads/sites.

    Thanks everyone xx

    Nothing to report since my last update really, my grandma gave me 20 to help me along with uni, which I'm not really wanting to include as I want to do this off my own back selling stuff and being resourceful, but I'll add it for now since I've had a quiet week.

    70ish now

    Evening all

    Thanks for the positives about my little op. Suppose I'm making a 'mountain' but hate anything to do with eyes, ears etc. Very nice consultant, who will do the 'op' herself, and it will be only a local anaesthetic she said "unless there are any probs" Another worry is that it's genetic not age-related, so the other one will prob need doing as well in the future. Oh well - could be lots worse eh

    Getting a bit worried about you being so tired all the time Aesop ? Maybe it's time to pop along to the local quack and get a check-up. It maybe just doing too much and not enough sleep, but equally you might be anaemic or low on certain vits. Worth having a look

    I haven't read that book CBC, but will try to order it from the library - thanks. I too have experience of lots of committees, both good and bad. Wonder if the chair/deputy of the one Aesop's on found it didn't have much support in previous years and are just used to having to do most of the work. Still doesn't excuse them not informing the committee of changed meeting though

    Everything crossed for you Shariann that the monies come through for you. Sounds great if it means you can get all your debts etc sorted. Though pleased to hear you're not intending to leave us

    Lurve the attitude Connor - but money's money and it all counts

    Just 2.40 on surveys today but at least better than nowt

    Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday

    thanks CBC I will.look for that book. I will find time to read it.

    I have been told today my money has been put through for the big job I did. so pleased as was worried I was going to get docked.

    Lynnejk, completely understand bejng worried about op. I hate ops now having had a few and every time go Dr my bp rises and they make me sit for 10 mins before taking it again.

    I did have blood tests recently. think a mix of things. too many late nights and then woken by DH at 5am and then rushing around. not eating properly and exercising either. I need to sort that out ASAP.

    it's a new chair and vice chair. they are friends and I think over enthusiastic and probably thinking they have to do everything themselves . will see how it goes. can always resign lol.

    I've had a flurry of things coming in - 8.37 from an Amazon sale, 81.74 interest (a regular saver matured this week) 90.58 from a mystery shop and a regular survey-type thing (quarterly payment). I've sold something on eBay but won't count that until I get paid - for some reason I get a bad feeling about it so not sure if it will complete.

    A short break away with OH sounds like a really good idea after all you've been through. Please don't feel guilty about spending money on it. Sometimes there are things in life that are much more valuable than money


    Thanks for including me in the same 'helpful' group as Aesop and Lynne. I do my best to support others as I've received such encouragement and help on here myself but I haven't been able to offer anything near the level of help that Aesop and Lynne have. I'm usually the one asking for their help

    Evening lovely peoples

    Well done all the money-makers this week

    Pleased to see you have been paid for that work Aesop. I agree with you about the committee - new brooms and all that You must make some time for yourself though - even if only 30 mins sitting with a cup of tea (or whatever) and some music or a book - p-l-e-a-s-e.

    You certainly are a help and support CBC. Your lovely posts, full of chat and info, and the support you give to all others on the thread is such a positive thing. You're an in your own way.

    Shock ! Horror ! This morning my phone line, and therefore my broadband, were missing totally After quite a long mobile call I was given an assurance that they would deal with it urgently - I admit that I did crawl a bit Well I'll give TT their due - both restored after about an hour thank goodness I was soo relieved.

    I have 20.50 to add today - 50p from a survey and 20 from daily clicks on inbox surveys - how much patience is that ??

    Hope you all have a thrilling Thursday

    I thought I was in for a 'throbbing Thursday' instead of a thrilling one as I woke up at 5 with toothache.. Miraculously though, it's gone. Mustn't get complacent though as it definitely needs attention sooner rather than later. I just keep putting off the visit to the dentist


    Just dropped in to report receipt of a 5 Morrison's voucher which I forgot to mention yesterday, plus 6.29 from Amazon which arrived in my bank overnight.

    Had a lovely surprise this afternoon when a courier delivered a prize which I'd forgotten I'd entered to win as it was weeks ago. I had no email, phone call or anything to tell me I'd won, just a big mysterious box arriving. Not that I'm complaining or anything, I love unexpected happenings (when they're nice)


    I went to a big food/cookery fair ages ago and entered every prize draw available. This one was for a set of 5 Stellar 3000 pans. They are absolutely gorgeous in bright shiny ruby red. A nice prize, just been online and they sell anywhere from 117 on eBay to 134 on other sites.


    Obviously I'm not going to include the price in my total as I would never have bought anything so luxurious/ expensive myself. In fact I wouldn't have bought any pans at all until my current mis-matched collection wears out and that could be years away.


    Bit of a predicament though. Should I sell them and make some handy cash (in which case I would count the proceeds in my total as it would be 'free' money) or do I keep them for a day far in the future when I need them? It's a bit like those survey questions that ask whether we WANT the product or NEED it. I don't need these pans at the moment but I sure as heck want them. Can't stop drooling

    Sounds good to me and I'd keep the saucepans, carboot the old ones and use the new ones tomorrow - enjoy

    Yes, they're very heavy duty, they look as if they'll outlast me

    I doubt anyone would want to buy my current ones though. Some of them belonged to my mum. Not exactly antique as such but almost as old as me. They made things to last in those days. They aren't non-stick (which probably wasn't invented when they were made) so there isn't all that much to go wrong with them. They just look shabby after decades of using, scouring and washing. There's a mix of enamel(various colours), aluminium and stainless steel. No two alike. Some have dents from being dropped. I don't have them displayed when not in use so it's never bothered me what they look like.

    Might do that. Thanks, and thanks too to Lynne for the original suggestion. I certainly wouldn't try eBaying them.


    I once had loads of pan lids, mainly from Mum. She never threw anything away that might come in handy (I wonder where I get it from?) and they didn't fit any of her or my current pans. I sold them all at a car boot sale, they were snapped up really quickly. I was only selling them for a few pennies each though. I wasn't bothered about the money, it was nice to think them having a new lease of life.

    Well done CBC on your win. I agree with everyone else that you should keep them.
    Another 5 paypal this morning from SBs. The sale is still on so I am swagging like mad at the moment.
    Keep up the good work everyone.

    Evening lovelies

    Golly it's quite on here. Are you all off on a 'Jolly' ?

    Decided it's time to bite a bullet. Both mine and DH's phones have been playing up for a while now. Getting slower and slower, sometimes sticking and eating battery. I suppose being as they are now nearly two years out of contract they are due replacing

    So have spent quite a bit of time looking on tinternet for new ones. Trouble is, being neither of us are very techie, and DH must have a reliable phone, we are loath to leave the network we are on and happy with Sammy phones. We also want to be able to 'pop back to the shop' if we have any probs or queries. So we are going to go visit the nice man in the car telephone shop t/m - wish us luck

    Made a paltry 2.20 on surveys today

    Hope you all have a sizzling Saturday

    I was thinking the same thing Lynne about it being quiet on here. I expect a lot more people will be back as we get nearer to Christmas and need all the extra money we can muster.

    I wrote a post yesterday and it disappeared. It was only to say I hadn't made any money but I rambled on a bit about Mystery Shopping which I think I might have another go at. I used to do it years ago but the cost of travel to assignments mostly wiped out any profits I made. Would be even worse now with petrol going up. Plus, I didn't think all the fast food I had to survey and consume was doing me much good. Didn't seem to get much else offered.

    I've been getting emails again recently from one of the companies I worked for and their assignments look much more varied and interesting. I know even Aesop has problems sometimes with her submissions and payments and she's an expert so I worry that it's all gone a bit too high-tech for me nowadays. I don't have all the devices either, just a laptop and now, a secondhand digital camera off eBay. One of the car dealership assignments looked appealing though and well-paid too. Still thinking about it (although not that assignment as it's probably been snapped up by now). I saw they had some mobile phone shops as clients too

    Just checked my bank online and see MySurvey have paid me 6. Nothing else to declare although am off to Morrisons in a few minutes and I think I'm due a 5 voucher. Will add it later.

    Well done to anyone who's quietly making any money and hasn't reported in. No tabletop sales planned for the next couple of weekends for me so might investigate Etsy a bit more and get some things listed.

    Have a good weekend everyone.


    Good luck with your mobile phones, Lynne.
