    Thanks x

    Hi, beckytravis:hello:

    Don't ever worry about asking what you think might be an obvious question. We've all been newbies at sometime or another;). We're always happy to help with any queries anyone may have, that's why it's such a lovely, friendly thread to be part of:j

    Sold another voucher on zeek for £15 was one of DS's birthday presents so will put into his savings ac.

    Also earned £7.50 doing an hours cleaning (I do it on an ad hoc basis for an agency so not my main job) I have a bid on the item I'm selling on ebay so will hopefully be able to add that soon. And nearly have enough in my panel base acc to withdraw too :)

    I'd not heard of roadkill either. Will have to take a look at it!

    I've made £8.25 from ebay, £2 from Textbroker and 50p from Prolific.

    I also did some trials of gambling sites using quidco links. Cashback has tracked which would give me a profit but won't count these until they confirm. I did win £45 on one so will count £15 profit from that one, as I had to deposit £30. I keep track of these in a spreadsheet and have been pretty lucky, in that I have won more than I put in on over half, plus I only do trials where the cashback is equal to or more than the initial deposit.

    Another one that I did a while ago paid out on Topcashback today, so that is £9.42 to add to the total.

    £49.33 to report from a mixture of eBay listings. Including my first foray into the world of well worn and trashed shoes! Not for everyone, I know, but being extremely liberal minded and loving a challenge, I had to have a go.

    Besides, money for something that would normally only be fit for an incinerator was too good a chance to pass up. I may be hooked :rotfl::rotfl:

    Don't think I actually got around to updating my last months earnings either - £146.71 by the looks. So not far off my fiver a day target. Fingers crossed for this month, although I will say I'm hindered by the death of my phone. It took a suicide leap into the toilet. Yes, WITH pee. The last one got itself trapped in the washing machine on a hot wash. And the one before that took a vacation on the shelves of Tesco, never to be seen again.

    I'm 'that' person. The one phone insurance is designed for....:o

    Love the phone escapades Surfchik :rotfl:!

    Update for today... £2.37 from surveys and 5p found in the foyer of 4sda (pretended to do up the lace of my shoe as I picked it up!). Hubby managed to get hold of one of the Metr0 beer vouchers today, so I'm guessing that's worth about £5 :beer:.

    £27.76/£100 :)

    Earned a £2.50 amazon voucher through opinion outpost. I'm doing a mini challenge where I have to earn as close to £43.04 (exactly what the next 6 upcoming birthday presents come to in my amazon basket) as soon as possible. So far I've got £12.50.

    Also received the Metro free beers, claiming £3.50

    I know it's not funny really - but sorry, I had to laugh :laugh:


    :T: everyone making monies already this month.


    I must admit to having a sofa day today due to the fabulous tennis and then football so not much done. I did manage £2.30 on surveys though to add to the pot :j


    Hope you all have a great Thursday
