    Belated New Year wishes Scott but very sorry to hear the sad news of your aunt's passing.

    Well done though on your survey earnings for 2018.

    Right i am back apologies for my disappearance, i hammered myself into work in January and early feb after my aunties funeral.

    Well whats new with me i have decided not too update my signature with my survey earnings being truthful i dont have the time. The last 3 years it has being easy 1000-1500 every twelve months earned via surveys and cashback.

    re surveys i am flying with Qmee anyone who doesnt have it get it, i am hammering it and frequently earning 10-15pw. Another app i have put on my phone is receipt hog, thats an app where if you purchase anything you upload the receipt and get paid for it.

    All else thats new with me is my bike collection has grown, i now have a Cube mountain bike and i have a Kinesis cyclocross frame i am building slowly up. A mate and myself are doing a novice triathlon in April so when i am not working i am either running/swimming or cycling.

    Good to see you back mate, I was definitely concerned about you.

    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    I think receipt hog works in the same way, ie you snap pics of any receipts you get and you get points for the receipts. I have a feeling with receipt hog the payout amount is quite high but being honest i am not concerned.

    My main survey earners are the usual

    Opinion Outpost
    Qmee
    Prolific
    Swagbucks
    You gov and One poll and opinium research.

    On the debt busting front i love saying this another will be biting the dust come friday. I have a debt relating too a lloyds overdraft that has 35quid too pay. I have being paying a fiver a month off it for ages and i have being taking extra chunks off it with survey earnings. It will be awesome when its gone. That will take me down too 9 debts in total rather than the 15 or 16 i had 3 years ago.

    re my total debts i will double check and post up later.
