    Make upto 10 a day in December 2017 ~ everybody most welcome 30th Nov 17 at 11:42 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody



    This is the 124th 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. Below are some ideas to get you started and a great place to read when you're in need of inspiration.

    Sell your old books/DVDs/CDs/games here:
    Amazon.co.uk, play.com, webuybooks, zapper, CEX, MusicMagpie, and a few more too

    Ebay - a place to sell anything and everything. (You will be suprised at what sells!)

    Gumtree, Preloved, cquot, ebid, craigslist, vivastreet, netmums.com, trade-it , Friday ad, priceminster - these are all places you can sell items too.

    Survey sites
    - mysurvey and pinecone, prolific academic tend to be the best but there are many more it really depends on you finding the ones that work best for you - toluna, harris poll, valued opinions etc

    Join cashback sites like Topcashback and Quidco - type in surveys in the search engine and some will pay you to join up with them.

    Mobile phone to recycle? Try http://mobilevaluer.com/ but also check other selling sites like ebay, Facebook selling, gumtree, etc.

    etsy and folksy - If you enjoy making crafts why not have a go at selling them on etsy or folksy. They've been getting increasingly busier each year.

    Trying to find other ways to make money? Check out the Boost Your Income board. It is full of ideas, including survey companies and product testing.

    Want to help someone else out? Sign up through their referral on the referral board, and leave yours, so someone else can do the same for you.

    Keep reading for lots more ideas on how to make more money each month.

    This month's challenge is to try and make 310 (or any amount of course!).


    Thanks lynnejk for all your help with updating challengers list and all the support you give on this thread.

    Good luck everybody. Remember to post any questions or comments that you have, and let's go on encouraging each other throughout this month.

    Scraped over the (10) line on Day 1...only just. I even cashed out 0.32 on Qmee because I'd convinced myself I wasn't going to make it

    Thanks Aesop for the TopCashback Hummingbird link. I love little things like this in the build up to Christmas. There's various sites doing Advent Calendars. Tombola have one (https://www.tombola.co.uk/bingo-games/play/advent). You have to have played 2 real money in November/December to take part, which might put some off. I didn't realise I had a Tombola account, but eventually got logged in with a password I used about 7-8 years ago, and found 5.04 bonus money in the account. I played this through the Arcade and lost the lost but along the way won just over 2 real money which was enough to allow me to open the Advent Calendar. Essentially you open 1 door a day, and if you collect 3 x items you win a prize. I got 1 santa today, which is worth 10 if I find another 2 during the next 24 days.

    I'm closing in on the 800 swagbucks needed for another 5 paypal payout, and on Consumer Pulse I've just hit 11,500 points which is enough for a 10 gift card, but I'll add those to the totals when they arrive. Keep getting emails about WhatUsersDo tests, but just haven't had the motivation lately to sit down and do them, they only take 10 minutes too...I just sort myself out!

    Total today:
    10.70 - Matched Betting
    0.32 - Qmee
    11.02
    Make 500 May Challenge: 904.40 / 500 -> My Matched Betting Blog

    I am under orders to tidy the house while master is at football match.

    So decided DS needs to spring clean and declutter his room. while doing that took nearly 2 hours I am now behind on stuff. just jumped on to do pinecone surveys before they close.
