    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 
    Wow - you're doing brilliantly!

    I've another £10.50 to add from cashback, and took a bag of clothes to one of those recycling places - got a whopping £2 :)  got a lot more bags, but not sure whether to just take them to a charity shop.  Been focusing on lots of batch cooking - hoping to save money with this, and always have something in, to stop the takeaways :)

    Thank you! I'm still going, so I was trying to see if I can get to £40 a day, though, it's not sustainable at this rate, but I'm okay with that. I just want to get my Very account paid off as quickly as humanly possible!

    Excellent! I've not tried those places, and I have to say, from you've what've just said, I'm sure I could be bothered rather than just take it to the charity shop if it can't be sold. Have you got anything else you can do to get you to your target?

    I feel like I'm very close to be not being able to do any more for September now! There are 5 days lefts, but I've exhausted everything I can bothered to do realistically! I've been at my side hustle today, so that's another £100, plus I sold the King Pro for £25, so £1203.25 is my total extra for September. Anything else to sell now, I'm going to wait for October.

    Wow some really inspiring stuff here! I did not do well... instead of 300, I managed a whopping £41.94. But 41 quid is better than none.
    But I did get some jewellery valued so good prospects for Oct (just need to decide if I sell scrap or opt for private sale)
    Savings goal by 31/12/24: £22000
    Dec 23: £6945.23
