Hello everyone. Happy New Year  and welcome to the first challenge of 2022.

The purpose of this challenge is to try and make an extra £10 a day on top of your normal income to help things along eg paying off debt, making savings, paying for holidays, overpaying mortgages.

If you feel £10 is too much why not start at £5 (or less if you want)  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. It also doesn't have to be £10 each and every day - some days you make more and some days you make less, but aim for £310 (or whatever your target is) extra at the end of the month.

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 is the 171st 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 14 years.

Hope you join us and see how much you can make this month! Here's to a great moneymaking start to 2022!

  • Below are some ideas to get you started and a great place to read when you're in need of inspiration.

    Sell your old books/DVDs/CDs/games here:
    Amazon.co.uk, play.com, webuybooks, zapper, CEX

    eBay - a place to sell anything and everything.

    Gumtree, Preloved, cquot, ebid, craigslist, vivastreet, netmums.com, trade-it , Friday ad, priceminster - these are all places you can sell items too.

    Survey sites - mysurvey and pinecone, prolific academic tend to be the best but there are many more it really depends on you finding the ones that work best for you - toluna, harris poll, valued opinions etc

    also join Topcashback and Quidco - type in surveys in the search engine and some will pay you to join up with them.

    Mobile phone to recycle? try https://www.onrecycle.co.uk/sell-my-phone/

    etsy and folksy - If you enjoy making crafts why not have a go at selling them on etsy or folksy. They've been getting increasingly busier each year.

    Collect  loyalty points for shopping - Tesco clubcard, Boots Advantage card, Morrisons More card, Superdrug Beautycard, Nectar card  (please let me know if there are any more loyalty cards to add)
    You can also go through Nectar to earn points for shopping at ebay.

    I've never taken part in this before but would like to start making a little extra given my fixed rate with Shell Energy is coming to an end this month! I might not make £10 every day but so far this month;

    £25 from Opinium Research surveys
    £4.50 from a survey I did before Xmas on The Viewers
    £5.44 from Prolific
    24p discount from some yellow stickered foccacia :smile:
    = £35.18

    I did a mystery shop earlier (£10) but I won't include this as it won't be paid until probably next month. 
    #2 - Save £2024 in 2024
    #35 - Save £12k in 2024
  • That is brilliant Linz, very encouraging! I won £30 from  online games so will add that to my total
