Make £10 a Day in October

Here is a nice new thread for October. . 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 will be AWOL for a few days, so see you all when I am back.  I am just going to set a target of £125 for myself this month as I will miss the first few days.
