Hello and welcome everybody :hello:

So, new year, new financial goals! Let’s see what we can achieve together in 2019.

This is the 137th month of this challenge, which was first started by Batgirl, in September 2007. Here is a link to the original thread as I am sure some of you are interested to read where it all began.

https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=542835

Thanks to Batgirl for starting it and for everyone who has kept it going for 11 years! I would especially like to thank Aesop who ran the thread for the last few years.

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 up to 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.


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
Survey income
Profit from selling on eBay etc
Cashback
And lots of other ways too

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.

This board can move pretty quickly, so be sure to subscribe and read it regularly.

So who wants to join us?

Good luck everyone and thanks to shariann for the original post!

    A few ideas to help us get started.

    A good place to start is the referrers board below. Lots of websites, apps etc have a referral scheme and most of them can be found here

    There are a few paid to click sites where you can make small amounts every day for completing tasks such as watching videos, taking surveys and searching the web. The best known of these is swagbucks and mse has several dedicated threads. There is a post below with links to various other posts explaining different aspects of swagbucks (if that makes any sense)

  • Any survey suggestions that’ll help?

    Hi. I’m out at the moment but here are a few survey sites I can think of off the top of my head. Some of them have referral schemes so it is a good idea to search the referral thread on here before you join - then you can help someone else out and post your referral code/link too.

    Prolific academic- this is lots of people’s favourite as the surveys are interesting, well paid and you only get offered surveys you are eligible for.

    Valued opinions

    Opinium

    Opinion people

    Maximiles

    Swagbucks

    Gifthulk

    Mint vine

    Qmee

    There are loads more but that’s a fair start

    Hi everyone

    I sometimes attempt this challenge, but never quite seem to get off the ground. I'm currently off sick long-term (waiting for a lung transplant), so I need something to keep me busy - maybe 2019 is the year I can finally crack it!!

    Please put me down for £10 a day :)

    Happy New Year everyone

    Emz xx
