    Update for the first week:

    £20 in vouchers

    Slow start but I have exams coming up so not much time to invest at the moment. I have just switched bank accounts so that will be £125 on the way in a month or two and I also have £80 pending in TCB which should be with me in a couple of months.

    Hi I'd like to join in. I've been meaning to sort thorough some things for a while and sell them on or do a local car boot sale so a target will get me motivated.

    So far I have £6 of interest come through for December.

    Do discounts like BOGOF deals count or only vouchers?

    Hi everyone, the end of the first week I have the following - £35 payout from Prolific, £25 premium bond win, £33 interest, £10 M&S voucher from credit card points and £3 Halifax reward.
    This challenge is really making me think about not wasting anything. I thought I had a supermarket voucher but when I came to use it, it had expired. Grr. Will try not to let that happen again!

    I have a meager £3.50 to start this week off, hopefully will have a better week next week, trying to do the surveys each evening when i get home so they haven't expired by the time i get to them, also have been waiting for a £70 payment for market research a while ago which i hope will come through this week.
