    ~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've cashed out from them 2-3 x and now not quite halfway through the last 40 one before it drops to 25. I do remember the surveys disappear close to the end with about a pound or so to go, but if you keep checking they do come back again. I thought I read somewhere it is because it takes them 5 days or so to validate on their side before you get to cash out (and then of course it takes them 28 days to do that), but not sure where I read that or if that is true!

    I vaguely recall it took a couple of weeks to get the last pound.

    Hello!

    Please may I join in? I was recommended over here by a super savvy turtle in the NST challenge thread.
    Part of that challenge is earning a little extra so here I am!

    Just signed up to pinecone and will look through the other suggestions later.

    I'll try for 10 per month to start to see how I fare.

    I've not done cashback sites before, do they give cashback on everyday stuff like groceries? And is it all online sales or receipt scanning?

    Thank you!

    Quidco, Topcashback, Kidstart don't tend to do groceries and just do other online purchases that you might make. Kidstart is good for giving cashback on Amazon and John Lewis as no one else seems to give cashback on these. For groceries there are apps out there to give money back on specific purchases etc - give Shopmium, Clicksnap, Checkoutsmart and GreenJinn a try.

    Hey all.. despite my thoughts that I could get ahead this week and therefore make it feel much easier to get to my monthly target, real life got in the way and ended up taking a sick baby to the doctors and looking after a sick and slightly grumpy baby 24-7 for the last few days.

    Baby is fine again now and I am likely to be seriously behind now... will tot up later. Just thought I would pop in this morning before a busy day. Keep going everyone, you're all doing great!

    Baby all better now I think.. just keeping an eye on him. Totted up my efforts and did well today and my total is none too shabby.. almost met my target for this week, so fingers crossed I can catch up a bit tomorrow as well. Also got two cashouts I am waiting on which should bring me another 17 next week.

    I swear this post is magic...

    So I posted this (sorry quote not working from mobile): "So exciting! I keep wishing I will suddenly get a nice chunk in from somewhere..I can dream, but in the meantime I will keep plugging away!"

    I just used a free casino bonus and won 125! Total now 214.77 for month.. close to halfway already!!

    Maybe I should post that I hope to win the lottery

    I know I've got major money problems and am not living the lifestyle I might have chosen if things were easier but I've always been truly grateful for a lifetime of good health and far fewer life problems than a lot of others have to cope with. I suppose it was only to be expected that sad/bad/difficult things would come along and affect me eventually. Just seems hard that they are all turning up at once

    I haven't time just now to reply to people individually, sorry, but I just want you to know that I am truly touched by the very caring comments and condolences from so many of you about the situation with my brother's illness. The kindness of strangers is very humbling and lifts the spirits no end. Thank you all


    Got to dash, OH has been ordered by me (and he's heard me for once) to take another carfull of his 'rubbish' to the tip. They only open 4 days a week now so we need to get on with it. I'm helping to squeeze as much as poss in to make use of every available space in his car


    Will try to be back later. Have a good day everyone especially if the sun is shining where you are as it is here for a change

    Sorry I haven't been here much, although I did say early in the month that I wouldn't be joining in the challenge as such while we are in a frenzy of emptying (pigs might fly eh?) the house ready for the building/electrical onslaught. Moving stuff is one thing but finding the time to sell any of it is another. The charity shops have had a bonanza this past week.

    I was hoping a lot of last year's misery was behind us and I was really approaching 2018 with a kickass 'onwards and upwards' attitude. Sadly have been hit with a major blow in that SIL phoned me on Tuesday to say my DB has stage 4 cancer. Spread from his bladder (for which he was being treated) to his lung. No possibility of removing the lung and radiotherapy not an option. Just going to have to rely on chemo. The consultant has given him 'months'. We hadn't been particularly close in recent years (physical distance more than anything else) but it came as a lightning bolt all the same. Needless to say I have slowed down considerably on my clearing/sorting which I really can't afford to do. He lives about 300 miles from us and as soon as my cold clears up I'm going to see him. At the minute he can do without anyone passing on infections to him.

    Well done everyone who has got 2018 off to a great money-making start


    Specially for newbies (and a warm welcome to you) I'd like to echo what Lynne and QueenJess said:







    QueenJess Sorry to hear baby has been ill but great to hear that things are improving


    Have a good weekend, everyone. Take care.
