    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.

    I had that book! My boys were complete horrors as toddlers, double trouble as they're twins and both have communication difficulties. I do remember it being a useful book and like you say entertaining too.

    I once took my boys to have a professional photo taken when they were about 2 and the photographer said he needed a Valium afterwards

    12 moc used yesterday and used lots of extra points coupons at sainsburys giving me an extra 1,450 nectar points.

    Updating since my last post, 27.98 matched betting, 25.28 articles written and 10 drawn from top cash back.

    Not far off another voucher with SB and loving another swago board yay.

    Quick question which site would you choose to sell alot of paperback thriller type books, got loads and most have only been read once and I won't read again so in good condition, prefer to box up and sell all at once rather than drip sell on a site like ebay tbh.

    Recommendations appreciated

    Totals so far 300 from:

    51 fleabay sales
    3 bank interest
    246 overtime

    Doing ok but could be so much better if I put in the time and effort but I'm getting totally lazy now I'm afraid and totally lacking motivation. Going on hols in December and think I'm in wind down mood already which is not good for money making but we'll struggle on.

    Hope you're all doing well xx

    A very small ebay sale 2.50 after postage & fees but it all counts and as it was something I didn't pay for in the first place it makes it a bit better

    5 from ebay/facebook sales.

    Slow going at present but lots listed including few larger items which would really help my total.

    Downloaded checkoutsmart last night and already earned 3 not going to add to totals until I withdraw though.

    I've just done a swagbucks survey for 650 swagbucks so that was an easy 5 amazon voucher if anyone wants to have a look.

    I'd only just redeemed another one too so 10 worth of Amazon vouchers to add to my total.
