    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 128th month of this challenge, which was first started by Batgirl, in September 2007. A link here to the original thread as I am sure some of you are interested to read where it all began.

    Thanks to Batgirl for starting it, lynnejk and ALL posters, for helping us to keep the thread going. Thanks to previous challengers who used to run this thread too, Rawdinosaur, Emmaglet, Nat21luv, Monkeynut, Sweetpeas, Purpleroses, JesaRose, MizMir.

    I have decided to rename this challenge as reading posts, it seems to put people off thinking they HAVE TO make 10 a day.

    You don't.


    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 upto 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.

    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.

    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
    And much, much more.

    This board moves pretty quickly, so be sure to subscribe and read it regularly.

    Link to previous thread.

    So who wants to kick 2018 into a financially working for you year?

    Join this challenge and let's make those bank accounts fat, mortgages paid off, holidays paid off, savings account grow fatter, debts paid off and much much more!!!

    Thank you I am good thank you, about to start a new job in a few weeks, much better pay but 1.5 hour commute compared to my current 20 minutes so feeling very nervous.

    I must be crazy but I've set myself the target of being debt free by the end of this year. Probably won't manage it but I need to aim high or I'll just procrastinate. I'm going to do everything in my power to start off 2019 owing nothing to anyone


    Good luck with the new job

    Not too bad at work today considering it was a bank holiday. Normally manic but think the bad weather calmed it down a bit.

    7 tips collected for Saturday and 5.20 for today.

    Good luck on you being debt free by end of year CBC. You can do it!!

    Aesop - I remember Ciao. Didn't write on there much mind. That's a blast from the past. That must be about 10-15 years ago now. Wonder if I can remember my login details.

    My total for today is 35.68. Back to work tomorrow

    I hope lots of you managed to enjoy the bank Holiday weekend without getting soaked or having whatever you wanted to do being called off.


    No money received as yet but I sold 3 books on Amazon over the weekend and some cross-stitch materials on eBay last night. Looks as if the weather was good for internet sales if nothing else. eBayers have paid but I haven't worked out deductions yet as the costs of stamps etc has gone up since my listings went live. Amazon don't pay for days anyway. Will post all parcels this morning, well OH will as I want to stay in for a courier who is delivering and taking back a returned item. Will add it all to total when it's all received.


    I'm really glad I signed up for Shop&Scan. Thanks, Aesop. I'm enjoying doing it (I'm easily pleased)and it's one of the easier moneymakers for me seeing as I don't buy all that much. They gave a 10 bonus for signing up and I've already submitted 3 weeks of barcodes and receipts so am well on my way to 20 in vouchers. The only downside is that they don't offer payment in cash but nothing's perfect is it?


    Wishing everyone a profitable week

    Hi all, long time no see. Don't think I've been part of this challenge for a year or so. Please put me down for 10 a day.

    A little bit of an update: Something has clicked recently and I've realised what I'd like my life to be like - one without clutter or a job I don't enjoy sucking up all my time. To that end, I've been listing a lot of items on ebay (some have been sitting on my side for years waiting for me to sell them) and if they aren't sold soon, they're getting chucked/donated. I'm also in the process of setting up my own business so one day I can quit my job and work from home. Currently only selling to friends but I hope to have an etsy shop up and running by the end of the month (need to take some decent photos first).

    I hope all you lovely people can keep me motivated. I've been very lazy recently and anything that isn't essential has been put in the "do later" pile, sometimes for months on end so I need to stop wasting time and just get things done

    So far, 50 bonus from work for working bank holiday. Lots of things with watchers on ebay and several orders from friends though I won't count their money until it's in my account.

    Can you put me down for 2 a day so hopefully 60 this month. Not as much as I made last month, as I don't think I'll have as much time for the first couple of weeks of April. Thankyou Aesop and Lynne!
