  • I’m annoyingly waiting for 2.91 to clear on Prolific so I can claim a fiver off it. Come onnnnn!

    I’ve realised, though, that I did a bunch of effective overtime this week. I’ll try to work it out and post it here later, but it’s over £100 for sure. In the meantime, I’ve received £1.60 cash back from the bank. Going to list a few items of clothing on Vinted this weekend too (stupidly took photos and put them back in the wardrobe without taking a note of the size 🤦🏻‍♀️)
    So it turns out I’ve done in the region of £380 of overtime! Plus another £0.11 cash back that cleared immediately after my last post (naturally) that puts me at an unexpected £398.99 😱
    That's fantastic - well done!!

    I've been out all day at my side hustle! It's absolutely exhausting work, but £110 up and he's asked me to do next Sunday as well!  B) AND a few days in October and November

    OMG! I'm on £1003.25  :o I do not even know how this has happened.... :o

  • Just found this thread and realise I am very late to join for this month, but hopefully I can join in late and then carry on to October. So far this month I earnt an extra £12 by selling a bag, and have earnt £30.89 from surveys. So nothing fantastic but when you break that down it is just over £2 a day, which if I can keep it up could be well over £700 in a year, towards the DMP. mortgage overpayment or holidays/Christmas & energy bills.  As I'm quite new to all these things, I don't have a signature set up yet, but I'm sure once I do, it will motivate me more to see the debts coming down and the savings going up.

    Hi @Makingabobor2 !

    Good luck with it! That's a great start and little extra payments really make a big difference.

    I have just been reading this page, so if you're looking for some inspiration...

  • congrats everyone so far. 
    I am finding this month harder as people are feeling the pinch now that school is back. I added $139.49 to my total and pushing to make a little more. 
    EF - save $1000 in 2024 $70 saved

    Annual Grocery shop $496/3000 - had to increase by $500 in March as groceries were so expensive, this is now $250 per month.
    March February $300 January $196

    My Grocery vouchers not included in the annual total - I have $100 costco (Used January)
    Still have $35 Walmart and $25 Save on.

    Started a diary to help me stay on track … @Time to slash the shopping budget and use up the store cupboard

    One week to go and I've sold an Air Fryer for £75 (was gifted to us, so I'm delighted with that!)

    Tomorrow I'm going to list a pressure cooker and see about selling some books and jigsaws outside the house....

    New total is £1078.25
