The rules are simple - you do not need to make £10 every day, you just aim to save, earn, win or raise an EXTRA £1000 over the period of 100 days. The 100 day period begins on Thursday 1st January 2009 and ends on Friday 10th April 2009, which happens to be Easter weekend.

All income that is not part of your normal, regular income can be counted and gets used to either pay off a debt, buy something special, neutralise your current spending or to increase your savings.

Feel free to join us and compare notes on how we each earn our extras. Last challenge saw some spectacular results! There's matched betting, free bingo, free scratchcards, cashback, vouchers, competitions, decluttering via online auctions & classifieds, car boot sales or you may even decide to work extra overtime, take on a second job, set up a home-based business or even start a cottage-style industry. Whatever you do, have fun finding those extra pennies that make the pounds that make the debts disappear and the rewards much richer! Above all, have a great year debt-busting and saving.

Small print - if in doubt about how this extra income may affect your current employment contract, tax, national insurance or any benefits you may receive etc, please check with the relevant agencies or authorities.

The less I spend, the more I can afford!
Now running Frugaldom as a lifestyle social enterprise! :D
