Make £10 a Day in September

Here is a nice new thread for September. . Get creative and lets see how we do this month.

Threads like this have been going for a while now and really seem to motivate people. So come on everybody, this is the place to post how much money you have made each day, over and above your normal income.  This can be from selling stuff on line or at car boots etc, doing surveys, mystery shops, receipt scanning apps, bank switches, cashback, or anything else you can think of.  Do you have a side hustle? Are you crafty? Do you bake cakes to sell?  Let us know and share your tips and ideas as well.  

£10 is a nice round figure that everybody seems to like, but if you want to aim higher, that is brilliant.  Or if you think you can only manage £5 a day, or even £2.  Whatever target suits you best.  Personally I like to aim low and then I feel better if I beat it, but one day I'll branch out and go for the full £10 a day.  

In the mean time, let us know you targets and how you are doing so far. ...Welcome to previous posters and newbies.

  • I'm going for £5 a day, so a target of £150 for this month. Nothing to report today, but I have been a bit busy to be looking for surveys today. So hopefully will get off the mark tomorrow. 
    Good luck everybody

  • Thank you for starting the thread @Makingabobor2 :)  I'll go for £5 a day so £150 for the month.  Good start as I'm on £37.04 from overtime and bank interest.  However the next 4 days are hectic, so the money making will go quiet for me.

    Hi all, can I join you this month? 

    I'm going to aim for £5 a day from surveys/selling etc. Up to 30p so far, so a bit of catching up to do 😂😂

    Also aiming for another £5 a day from casino free spins offers, but that can go down as well as up so I'm tracking separately - down £9 on this so far. 

    I've been doing lots of this stuff on and off for many years bit get quite sidetracked... Looking forward to being a bit more proactive with all of this and learning from the rest of you 😊
  • You can make a few hundred pounds relatively easily buying & selling. You need some money to start with, the ability to negotiate, to know the items that sell well and what they are worth.  You can use the seasons to your advantage e.g.  buy lawn mowers in winter & sell in spring, buy portable air con in winter & sell in summer. Buy heaters in summer & sell in winter etc. A bit of practice and away you go.


  • Off the mark at last for this month, with £5.83 today from P/fc. Hope the next week is a good one.
