FEBRUARY Make £10 a Day Challenge

Hello to all newbies & regulars and welcome to another Make £10 a day challenge motocanaglia_welkom.gif

I know this first post is long, but please read it as it gives tips and info on how this challenge works!

Batgirl started this challenge over a year ago and is now taking a well deserved break and thanks to Jesarose and Mizmir who also keep this thread going!

If you're new to the challenge don't be scared - here's how it works:

The aim of this challenge is to make £10 extra a day everyday for the month. A lot of people think this is impossible but this is some people's 18th month and it can and has been done (and in some cases some show offs have even doubled or tripled the monthly challenge).

If you feel £10 is too much why not start at £5 or if you're brave join those who aim for £20 a day! Anything extra you make is great so set whatever target you think you can manage.

The idea is that everyone posts how they are making extra money or saving 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
What can: overtime at work, savings in shopping, daily clicks, sales, interest, vouchers

Feel free to add any extra money earned (above normal wages) or any money you saved when out shopping. For daily clicks and sites like quidco its up to you when you add the money earnt there. Some add it when an amount tracks others when it's paid out - its your challenge so its up to you what you want to count and when you want to count it.

This board moves so fast so here's some ideas for people to make money. (click the links for some shortcuts to threads on each subject):

Amazon.co.uk, play.com, Green Metropolis - sell your old books/DVDs/CDs/games here. (Green met is for books only)

Ebay - a place to sell anything and everything. There is a whole board about ebay which gives you ideas, hints and tips about selling

Survey sites - I've found lightspeed and p!nec0ne to be the best (p!nec0ne is hard to find but well worth trying to find it) but there are many more it really depends on you finding the ones that work best for you - toluna, ciao, harris poll, valuedopinions etc etc

Daily clicks - go to EagerLearners thread on this board and ask for her guide. last i checked it could get you £3 per day. Although clicks take time to add up its worth it in the end!

Mystery shopping - Get paid to be a mystery shopper - I don't do it so know nothing about it but many on here do so ask if you need any advice.

Up your income board - full of great ideas!

Free Daily Scratchcards - a few of the b!ngo sites let you play one of their scratch cards each day for nothing (twice on Sundays) link: http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/...t=scratchcards

Everyone is welcome - just post your target, update your signature and get going. If you have any questions just ask here and someone will help

Please post your intention to take part and your target and I will add you to the list. Challenge starts February 1st - £10 a day this month will be £280.

    I am totally new to this site but have read some super things.

    I would love to do this challenge but ill start with just £5 a day please :)

    Any hints and tips would be amazing to start me off :)

    Thanks in advance

  • (Wipes brow, deep breath, holds nose, takes plunge) I'll go for £10 a day in February.
  • I've always seen this thread and thought... I wish!! Well s*d wishing put me in for £10 a day... I have no idea how I'm going to make this amount... I sometimes earn extra money at the weekend at bar job so that's bound to help towards the total... my computer is broken at home at the moment, but I've ordered the charger to fix it, so then I'll start on the ebaying and get back onto lightspeed (blocked at work!).

    I also need to start doing valued opinions as I'm signed up but tended to ignore the emails and concentrated on lightspeed before. Now I'll need them as well. I signed up and looked into daily clicks, but it just wasn't for me.

    I love my books but if all comes to all then I guess I'm going to have to get onto amazon.. lets leave that for the moment though!

    I think the final thing is going to be scratchcards... I think that'll be better for me then daily clicks.. I'll look into that tmw lunchtime!
    Wow if we make this challenge that's an extra £280 towards debt (and that's where it will go) :)
    Debt Free since 2012
    Current Savings £1,400
    Current Mortgage £143,398.27
  • Going for it again.
    £20 a day please!
