    ~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!!!

    Ooh. I have just had a slots win paid out. Profit of £180 so total now

    £330.42

    Can't believe I have passed my target on day 3! If only I could do that every month!!!

    I'm not going to update my target yet but I had set myself a goal to pay off a smallish debt by the end of Jan. It is £417.62 so I hope to be able to pay that off with the extra I make this month.

    Other things slightly better too so I am hoping things might be looking up. Back to work tomorrow so hope that is ok

    Hi all

    Not having a good start to the new year as far as OH goes. Won't elaborate but things have been pretty dark.

    On the money making front things are going well. I had my payment for switching banks which is £130. They have actually paid it twice but I'm only adding it once as I'm pretty sure they will realise and take it back! I also have an interest payment on that account of £1.49 and £8.16 cashback from a credit card. There's something else too but can't remember what. Gotta go now but be back later with totals

    Another £30.03 to add from wins to add to my total hoping for a few sales now to keep the momentum going but not looking likely. Have a massive bag of things that havent sold ready to go charity shop as i want them out of my way, which will hopefully give me room for more decluttering.

    Well done everyone who's having a good start to the year and good luck to those of you still waiting to get off the starting blocks.

    £7.60 tips to add.

    Have ressurected my One Poll account that I last used 4 years ago

    Think I gave up on it as £40 is a huge target and seemed to be taking forever.

    I have £15 on it so will persevere again. I read somewhere that once payout has been reached, they lower the next payout threshold?
    Hopefully someone can confirm for me
