    ~Make upto £10 a day in October 2017 ~ everybody most welcome 30th Sep 17 at 10:36 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody



    This is the 122nd month of this challenge, which was first started by Batgirl, in September 2007. A link here to the original thread as I am sure some of you are interested to read where it all began.

    Thanks to Batgirl for starting it, lynnejk and ALL posters, for helping us to keep the thread going. Thanks to previous challengers who used to run this thread too, Rawdinosaur, Emmaglet, Nat21luv, Monkeynut, Sweetpeas, Purpleroses, JesaRose, MizMir.

    I have decided to rename this challenge as reading posts, it seems to put people off thinking they HAVE TO make £10 a day.

    You don't.

    The original purpose of this challenge was to help people to try and make an extra £10 a day on top of their normal income to help things along. Ie paying off debt, making savings, paying for holidays, overpaying mortgages etc.

    That is exactly what this challenge is about, attempting to make extra income on top of your normal income to help you wherever you need it.

    People start the challenge by setting a goal of £1 a day. Then when they find they are smashing this regularly, they up it to £5 a day. Some of us gluttons for punishment go for £10 a day. It really is entirely upto you. We only ask you to post what your goal is to help you keep motivated. Some days you make more and some days you make less, but aim for 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, MusicMagpie, and a few more too

    Ebay - a place to sell anything and everything. (You will be suprised at what sells!)

    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

    Join cashback sites like Topcashback and Quidco - type in surveys in the search engine and some will pay you to join up with them.

    Mobile phone to recycle? Try http://mobilevaluer.com/ but also check other selling sites like ebay, Facebook selling, gumtree, etc.

    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.

    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 £310 (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.

    Just drawn down another £5 amazon voucher from swagbucks, plus had a good few days on the match betting front with £183.09 total.

    Also did 2 short articles for £10.02.

    As things have gone crazy well this first 2 wks of October I have already hit my target so will now aim to double the target by the end of the month if I can

    One of the sites I use to get little articles to write asked me to join a new team so got a list of about 30 more articles to get through by the end of the month. Not huge pay per word but pretty easy and will be a big boost, just a pity it isn't every month lol.

    Evening all

    Sorry I've been MIA last couple of days but RL and not feeling 100% seem to have got in the way Ok atm and going forward again instead of in reverse

    Great to see all the efforts bringing in some good results

    Plenty of days left in the month and hope you all continue to rake in the dosh.

    The list of challengers is up to date to here and a warm welcome to the new peoples. Ejjones76 - have added you but you didn't state a total, perhaps you can post one and I'll add it

    I mentioned last week that my yearly savings account had matured. When I checked, I didn't seem to have received the correct amount of interest - in the bank's favour of course. Well, after two phone calls and a c/b from the complaints department it has now been sorted and is now in my favour by £13.60 as compensation. Not much but better than nowt and it was just a rounded up figure.

    Also have added £5.98 interest from bank account.

    Hope you all have a super Thursday

    there are issues with vypr at the moment, think people on ios are having more problems than android. They are working on it but telling people to uninstall, reboot your phone, and then reinstall, they say that should correct any issues. I dont see it making much difference in the posts I read.

    there's an issue with lucky leftovers too, they are having network problems and as they use virtual network numbers to send texts from, they are having issues there too.

    so you probably find you have pending amounts in your account that should have gone to payable by now and haven't.

    Also my daily texts have been reduced and September total is wrong.

    Not much we can do about it. they are working on trying to fix it
