    Make 10 A Day October 2019 30th Sep 19 at 3:13 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 146th 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.

    https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=542835

    Thanks to Batgirl for starting it and for everyone who has kept it going for more than 11 years! I would especially like to thank Aesop who ran the thread for the last few years.

    The original purpose of this challenge was to help people to try and make an extra 10 a day on top of their normal income to help things along. Ie paying off debt, making savings, paying for holidays, overpaying mortgages etc.

    That is exactly what this challenge is about, attempting to make extra income on top of your normal income to help you wherever you need it.

    People start the challenge by setting a goal of 1 a day. Then when they find they are smashing this regularly, they up it to 5 a day. Some of us gluttons for punishment go for 10 a day. It really is entirely up to you. We only ask you to post what your goal is to help you keep motivated. Some days you make more and some days you make less, but aim for extra at the end of the month.


    What cannot be added:
    Wages from your main job

    What can be added:
    Overtime
    Income from a second job
    Daily clicks
    Interest
    Vouchers
    Mystery shopping
    Survey income
    Profit from selling on eBay etc
    Cashback
    And lots of other ways too. Check out the boost your income guide on this website for lots of ideas.

    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 board can move pretty quickly, so be sure to subscribe and read it regularly.

    So who wants to join us?

    Hi, can I join in please? I'm going straight in for 310. When do we consider the money 'earned' - once you know you're going to get it (IE completed the work) or when it is paid and in your bank account?

    Thanks

    Hi. Can I join please? I'd like to aim for 310, knowing that I've booked in some overtime later in the month.
    I've just had a rough month with a lot of bills and need the motivation to keep topping up my income each day.
    One of my savings accounts has interest paid monthly, so can I also add in the 2.52 I was paid yesterday straight off please? Thank you.
    Original mortgage total: 140,000.00 (July 2015) Original mortgage end date: June 2040
    Mortgage free start date: 16th October 2018 Mortgage total at this point: 132,829.12
    Current mortgage total: 125,386.23 Current mortgage end date: June 2038
    Total overpayments so far: 1445
    MFW 2019: 1345 / 3000
    Daily interest: 7.59 > 7.23
