    APRIL make £10 a day challenge ~All Welcome~ 27th Mar 09 at 2:17 PM
    Hello to all newbies & regulars and welcome to another Make £10 a day challenge

    I know this first post is long, but please read it as it gives tips and info on how this challenge works!

    Batgirl started this challenge over a year ago and is now taking a well deserved break and thanks to JesaRose and Mizmir who also keep this thread going!

    If you're new to the challenge don't be scared - here's how it works:

    The aim of this challenge is to make £10 extra a day everyday for the month. A lot of people think this is impossible but this is some people's 20th month and it can and has been done (and in some cases some show offs have even doubled or tripled the monthly challenge).

    If you feel £10 is too much why not start at £5 or if you're brave join those who aim for £20 a day! Anything extra you make is great so set whatever target you think you can manage.

    The idea is that everyone posts how they are making extra money or saving 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
    What can: overtime at work, savings in shopping, daily clicks, sales, interest, vouchers

    Feel free to add any extra money earned (above normal wages) or any money you saved when out shopping. For daily clicks and sites like quidco its up to you when you add the money earnt there. Some add it when an amount tracks others when it's paid out - its your challenge so its up to you what you want to count and when you want to count it.

    This board moves so fast so here's some ideas for people to make money. (click the links for some shortcuts to threads on each subject):

    Amazon.co.uk, play.com, Green Metropolis - sell your old books/DVDs/CDs/games here. (Green met is for books only)

    Ebay - a place to sell anything and everything. There is a whole board about ebay which gives you ideas, hints and tips about selling

    Survey sites - I've found lightspeed and p!nec0ne to be the best (p!nec0ne is hard to find but well worth trying to find it!) but there are many more it really depends on you finding the ones that work best for you - toluna, ciao, harris poll, valuedopinions etc etc

    Daily clicks - go to EagerLearners thread on this board and ask for her guide. Last i checked it could get you £3 per day. Although clicks take time to add up its worth it in the end if you have the time to spare.

    Mystery shopping - Get paid to be a mystery shopper - I don't do it so know nothing about it but many on here do so ask if you need any advice.

    Up your income board - full of great ideas!


    Free Daily Scratchcards - a few of the b!ngo sites let you play one of their scratch cards each day for nothing (twice on Sundays) link: http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.html?t=1412565&highlight=scratchcard


    Everyone is welcome - just post your target, update your signature and get going. If you have any questions just ask here and someone will help

    Please post your intention to take part and your target and I will add you to the list. Challenge starts April 1st - £10 a day this month will be £300:

    I'll have my usual £5 please purple. Having a week away with the boy so will be working pretty hard to make it this month (then again last month looked like a bust until the last week).
    Itís not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you werenít doing it.

    Please put me down for £15 this month ... managed £20 last month but only because I had loads of matched betting to do. This month will definitely be slower.

    Have been doing this challenge on my own for the last few months as I kept forgetting to officially sign up, however I will now have been doing it nearly a year, so the time has come to take the leap from £10 a day to £15 a day. This will be made doubly hard this month as we're on holiday for two weeks, still, aim for the stars and all that!
