    WELCOME TO THE '1000 IN 100 DAYS' CHALLENGE

    1st January 2009 - 10th April 2009

    It's 100 days, no more and no less.

    Link to 1st challenge -
    Link to 2nd challenge - 1st January 2009 - 10th April 2009
    Link to 3rd challenge - 11th April 2009 - 19th July 2009

    The rules are simple - you do not need to make 10 every day, you just aim to save, earn, win or raise an EXTRA 1000 over the period of 100 days. The 100 day period begins on Thursday 1st January 2009 and ends on Friday 10th April 2009, which happens to be Easter weekend.

    All income that is not part of your normal, regular income can be counted and gets used to either pay off a debt, buy something special, neutralise your current spending or to increase your savings.

    Feel free to join us and compare notes on how we each earn our extras. Last challenge saw some spectacular results! There's matched betting, free bingo, free scratchcards, cashback, vouchers, competitions, decluttering via online auctions & classifieds, car boot sales or you may even decide to work extra overtime, take on a second job, set up a home-based business or even start a cottage-style industry. Whatever you do, have fun finding those extra pennies that make the pounds that make the debts disappear and the rewards much richer! Above all, have a great year debt-busting and saving.

    Small print - if in doubt about how this extra income may affect your current employment contract, tax, national insurance or any benefits you may receive etc, please check with the relevant agencies or authorities.

    I think I'll do this rather then the Olympic Challenge this time as it seems to have a lot of familier faces who are also doing the Live on 4k challenge. Sign me up Nyk. Thanks.

    Morning. I'm in. I want to go to Jordan at the end of March - So need to raise about £1k by then. I reckon I can do it on ebay, as I have a ton of stuff, but am somewhat lacking motivation at the mo. :0(

    Long time lurker on MSE, watched the other thread, and wanna join too!

    Wanna make 1000 in 100 days from nothing ( surveys, clicks, comps, ebaying freebies/gifts, free bets).

    10/day challenge seems a bit too unrealistic for me, and quite a few dont seem to be making the required amount each day on that challenge, so better to go for a challange with a longer term goal, where i can make up for days when i make nothing
  • shabbychicfan
    Right - Never joined a challenge before so am up for this one!

    Wish I hadn't just made 300 on ebay, I could have counted it and it would have given me a great start! :rolleyes:

    Onwards and Upwards, now what Debt shall I pay my 1k to?

  • BlueSky333
    Just been looking at the last challenge, most of you did extremely well!! Even over the magic 1000!

    Dont think I can make that much, but gonna give it my best, anything I make is still better then nothing! Just the thought of having an extra 1000 in 100 days is motivation enough! Roll on Jan 1st!
