Make £10 a day in May 2019

Hello and welcome everybody :hello:

This is the 141st 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.

Thanks to Batgirl for starting it and for everyone who has kept it going for more than 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:
Income from a second job
Daily clicks
Mystery shopping
Survey income
Profit from selling on eBay etc
And lots of other ways too. Check out the boost your income guide on this website for lots of ideas.

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?

    Could I join please. I used to do this back in 2013 for a couple of years and actually managed to pay for a holiday to Florida with the money I made. Back then the majority of the money came from mystery shopping and there just isn’t as many of these jobs around these days so I’m going to have to have a little look at how I can do this.
    So I’m going to start at £5 a day please.

    Starting with a £10 payout from NatWest My Rewards.
