    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.

    Good evening everyone,

    I have really enjoyed this challenge so much so I am already thinking what I can sell in December. I have my pinecone about to cash out. I'm trying to get my head my head around swagbucks and other surveys which I have added myself too, just takes time especially when you work full time, have a family and a home to run.

    Ebay Sales - 21
    FB - 72
    Pinecone 15
    Quidco 56.16

    So after initially saying I would only do 60 I have made 164 not bad for my first go at this challenge and one that I have stuck too.

    Good luck for December everyone xxx

    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.
    Originally posted by QueenJess

    you get 1p for opening everything on curious cat, apps included, even if you don't install them all (not that they credit anyway)

    but the main reason for keeping it..... ondevice owns curious cat. they send surveys that sometimes pay to paypal after the project has finished or straight to curious cat. worth sticking with it.

    No I do passive earning. I run a lot of videos and have a few referrals.

    I was doing well with videos until this weekend when I got stuffed as they wouldn't run properly and I didn't have time to sit and woke out why.

    Yeah the videos are a bit hit and miss for me but I run them when they are working.

    Thought I had put my referral link on but just checked and apparently I havent.

    Now on so if anyone wants to have a go at InstaGC I would be very grateful for even just 1 referral.

    Total failure so far today... been a very difficult day all round (I hate weekends...) and stressed about various things including how I am going to juggle a full time job with a baby doing all the pick ups and drop offs at nursery with a long commute It's now keeping me awake at night..

    Anyway, so I have made about 50p today (oops!), although weekends are harder as I find the surveys dry up a bit. I have been researching and trying to find new apps and things to trial, so will report back if I find any good ones!

    Hope everyone had a good weekend.

It is do able as long as you are willing to drop certain things to look after yourself. I have to accept a messy house so I get a rest and let her sleep with me after first wake up so I can sleep. My side money making also was next to none but I manage little bits here and there now. You can do it xxx

    Thanks for your support! Just need to organise myself better... I have already realised the use of internet food shopping.. something I can do at work!
