    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.

    Yes. I do try to do that when I can... I am forced to cuddle a baby at night and so it all depends on when he is ready to wake up as I can't reach the phone.. usually I can get some running whilst I am getting breakfast. It is just annoying as I am so close... now only 7 away which is nothing!!

    I am actually still finishing running the apps for today as have been so busy. I think I have about 10 SB left to earn so it should work out pretty much perfectly...

    Am getting behind in my calculations... still need to add stuff in, probably about £15. Will do it as soon as I get time!

    On the plus side, I rang work and it sounds like they are potentially much more relaxed re: flexible hours... they are going to liaise and get back to me this week. Fingers crossed!

    Excellent news Jess - sounds like everything is starting to come together for you.

    £25.94 MB'ing for me today. Much slower than everybody else at Swagbucks, I lack the patience for it, but have started leaving the apps running occasionally, and doing a few of the smaller daily tasks and I'm starting to build up SB's. Currently up to 729, so will be able to redeem soon.

    A great start to the day here months ago I challenged our council tax band as we were in a higher band then neighbours even with much larger properties.. I researched and supplied lots of evidence including what my home would have been worth in 1991 (how they calculate bands) and today received a letter saying that they agree my band is too high and they are reducing us down by a whole band and our bill will be reduced accordingly and backdated to when we purchased the property just under 2 years ago! Being a band lower will save us £194 a year!!!!

    and I complained to jus rol after buying some ready to roll pastry for a pie last week which was sticky and thin and a nightmare to use (I use it often and its not normally like this) and they sent me £3 in vouchers to apologise. Am adding the £3 to my total.

    Hope the rest of the day is as profitable!

    Big congratulations to all money makers this month. Not the easiest time of year to do it so anything anyone made is a great achievement


    Commiserations and hugs to anyone having a bad time. Things can only get better. Onwards and upwards eh?


    Snowing really hard here since first light this morning. My car looks like an igloo. Good thing I don't need to go anywhere today

    Stay warm and safe, everyone

    OK.. finally sorted myself out and am claiming £223.15 for the month with a small bit of interest yet to come. Not too shabby for the month.

    I think the last items I went through were:
    eBay sales £12.81
    Citizenme £1.02
    Curious Cat £1.01 (new app I am trialling... easy to cash out the first £1, but being screened out of most of the surveys so not sure whether I'll keep it or not. You do get 1p for trying a survey, but not really worth it if you get screened out all the time).

    Must remember to relist my eBay items tonight; I forgot last Thursday! Only got a few bits and bobs left of very low value, but every little helps.

    Thanks everyone for your good wishes... hopefully it'll all work out now. As soon as something looks up, something else goes wrong doesn't it? My sky box hard drive is caput and as we don't have a TV aerial, it sadly is the only option (or pay for an aerial)... but DH likes sport and so has always paid for Sky as I refuse... so actually it is free for me! Annoyingly the box is running slow and even watching TV is difficult, so relying on the laptop to watch stuff.. again annoying as I need it to run Swagbucks!

    Need to get an engineer out... DH needs to sort it out as it's all in his name.. Oh well.

    I've just been sat here adding my November up. I've had a really good month! Rounded totals were:
    £38 from haggling, £30 ebay sale, £160 vouchers used, £17 tax refund, £10 cancelled commitment, £30 Nectar points, £7 Tesco points, £17 wool to knit with found in charity shop instead of bought new, £23 surveys, £42 interest & £25 saved by shopping in Lidl not usual more expensive supermarket
    So altogether that's £399
    & cumulatively my April to November 244 days is £2,697 so I'm still saving £10 a day.
    Hoping for a good December. I've got several surveys about to pay out and stuff listed on eBay.
