    ~Make upto 10 a day challenge January 2018~ 31st Dec 17 at 2:53 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 125th 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!!!

    I had a random cheque for 5.

    It's very strange. Capital One wrote to my mum's house (where I have not lived for 15 years) saying they owed me some money and were trying to contact me. I gave them my new address.

    Several months later I received a cheque from them for 5 with no covering letter or explanation.

    I am at a loss as to how they owe me 5 and why they wrote to mums. The account was closed a long time ago but I know for sure they had my new addresses because I remember using the card to buy furniture when I moved out. I am also pretty sure I would have closed it. And why a credit card had a positive balance anyway... who knows?

    I also made 22p when I closed an unused savings account and they paid me the accrued interest.

    Hello my lovelies. Can I come back? Just for a tester month (or partial month)
    Anyone know if lucky leftovers is working yet?
    MobX have kicked me off for reasons unspecified. That was a nice xmas pressie.

    Anyone got an interesting saving plan? I'm comtemplating the save 1p challenge.. 1p on 1/1 10p on the 10th Jan 3.64 on Dec 31st.. ifI can find a spreadsheet I can tweak.

    luckyleftovers is working for some and not others. it is working for me but only allows 100 texts a day now no matter what you put (maximum I mean)

    I hate mobile xpressions, they are such a fickle company kicked me off I complained they escalated and said decision stands.

    so thats another one rid off.

    Hi Aesop, well last year I made 40 from it so its about 3 months for 10, but I like that its effortless. Also have Ipsos which gives you a 10 am@zon voucher every month just for keeping the app installed, but I use that towards xmas/birthdays so not counting it for this challenge
