    Make upto £10 a day in November 2017 ~ everybody most welcome 30th Oct 17 at 9:20 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody



    This is the 12 3rd 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 £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.

    A must for all newbies if you are not already doing any of these:

    1. Apply to PineconeResearch here. They pay a guaranteed £3 per survey. You are never screened out, they don't send out lots, but when you get one, you know you will be paid within a few days.

    http://mysurvey123.com/pinecone-research/

    2. Apply to Shop and Scan - this is not the same as Nielsen Home Shopping Scanner. Shop and Scan is a hand held scanner, that you scan the barcodes of your shopping, you are paid 1100 points weekly for scanning, nothing if you are on holiday. You can cash out for various vouchers at 10000 points. Not much work for a good reward. They also send emails with questionnaires that are worth extra points.

    https://www.volunteer4panels.com/

    3. Quidco and topcashback toolbar notifiers - a must have for those who forget to check for cashback when browsing online before buying.

    http://www.quidco.com/cashback-reminder

    http://www.topcashback.co.uk/cashback-notifier

    4. Printable coupon thread

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4906235

    5. Referral board

    6. Freebies, no spends required

    Just a reminder,

    You can mention earnings from matched betting, known as MB, bingo sites, etc but do not make a lengthy discussion about the pros and cons of MB., bingo sites, casinos, etc.


    There is an Mse board for those things already and this board is for making money.

    Not everyone has the opportunity to do things like MB and other sites, or cannot do it for personal reasons.

    There are plenty of other creative ways to make upto £10 a day, so get posting your ideas.

    Hello, please count me in for £300, £10 a day.
    Thank you to Aesop and Lynne for running the thread.
    Thank you to all you other lovely people for the on-going encouragemnt and inspiration.
    I'm getting to a point where I am going to have to start to be a bit more inventive in terms of what I am selling to make money. I am still decluttering and have plenty of items to shift but for the first time am thinking, this will run out sometime!
    I have some large items to sell though that could be a good amount by themselves maybe. (Computer towers and a china tea service - so random!)
    I was delighted to sell an office phone system for £150 this month - I hope I can get a similar result with the computers - I'm paying for an IT man to clear them down for me.
    I'm also continuing mystery shopping when I feel like it - had a lovely meal last night - gave the place 10 out of 10 - they have authorised my report in record time and I now have about £25 due on the 10th so that's a bit towards my total.
    I find that doing surveys (apart from YouGov) numbs my brain for the time spent vs return so I was pleased this month to be a bit more 'adventurous' (Ha - is that the right word?) and used Zeek and webuybooks - those were nice bonuses.
    I might manage a car boot sale we will see.
    Apart from doing this challenge I have been working hard and increased my earnings, touch wood I am so pleased about that. It's not yet six months since my best friend and business partner died so I am proud of me to have got where I am up to!
    Decluttering my house is helping me feel brighter.
    Sorry for the ramble but wondered if me mentioning specific stuff I have done could be helpful.
    And of course I have confirmed I have a 'lost' pension due so that's great.
    Good luck all for November.
    Make £10 a day, 12 months 2013-2014: £8973.51
    Make £10 a day, 2017: July: £375.16 August: £993.10
    September: £296.69 October: £398.87 November £136.62
