    ~Make upto 10 a day February 2018~ 31st Jan 18 at 9:54 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 126th 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!!!

    Hi everyone! Thanks for all the birthday wishes. I had an excellent day, bought myself a nice bracelet, a book, had a much needed haircut, but best of all I went for lunch on my own and it was bliss! I never used to like eating it on my own as I felt awkward, but knowing I could sit there for as long as I liked and eat as slowly as I wanted without rushing as danger baby will wake up and cry or just need me was brilliant. Just what I needed!

    Now I feel refreshed and ready to make some more cash for the weekend and deal with baby teething (he's getting 8 teeth all at the same time : shocked: ).

    Hope everyone's had a nice weekend?

    Nothing to report for me in the money making world but have received what will hopefully be another source of regular online income.

    Got an invite for consumerpulse completely out of the blue.

    I dont really spend an awful lot on clothes/makeup etc but have just filled in my first weeks purchases and its surprising how the odd purchases add up!!

    Looking forward to getting stuck into this one.

    To be honest..........anything that isnt moronic online surveys that most of the time you dont qualify for is fine by me.

    Anyone else on here do this site?

I don't think he counted on the rain, winds and mud everywhere especially in his tent. His pillow was soaking wet as as was his rucksack. I asked why and didn't get a straight answer. I said nothing in the tent should have got wet.

    anyone with boys.... especially little boys... always check their pockets on everything, every night!!!

    I emptied DS coat pockets to put in washing machine..... crumbs, crumbs and more crumbs, completely soaked through. What are these? Oh my buttered cracker from school that I put in my pocket and forget to eat.....

    cue me - doesn't it occur to you to tell me when you get home so I can wash your coat/clean your pockets? and what about when you put your hands in your pockets?

    No. that's why I dont put my hands in my pockets....

    all boy that one.

    I've been non stop washing clothes and trying to get them dry. Not much money making going on here although I managed both sb targets.

    i have been doing consumer pulse for years. definitely one to get onto and one I recommend in the first few posts.

    You can also add things you watch on netflix, amazon tv, etc.

    any more info on your online income?

    Sounds like your son is deffo a typical boy

    By online income....I just meant various sites that we all do

    Is amazon on the list of retailers for consumerpulse? It wouldnt let me look on the redeem points bit.

    Oh that's great news.

    I've been on CP for a few years and you'll find the points add up quite quickly. They send you a couple of surveys each month as well, for which you get points also, and they give you yearly bonus points if you fill these in every month.

    I usually save the points up and use them for a purchase from C*rrys or something similar. I've had things such as a good tablet each for my son and I and a high -end pressure cooker.

    I don't get them until I want to use them though as they do not have very long dates.

    Sorry your son didn't enjoy his 'freezer camp' Aesop. It does seem a little early in the year for camping eh, and being boys everything is guaranteed to get soaking wet.

    Well done all the money makers - lovely to read all the postings

    Hope you all have a super Monday

    Evening all. Pretty quiet weekend here, poor weather meant we didn't really leave the house much. Nipped out to a local garden centre for lunch, and had a quick look at their fish tanks - what is it with young children and fish? Mesmerised for ages!

    Can't wait for the better weather so we can actually get out and do stuff.

    I need to get back into doing Consumer Pulse regularly...I just don't buy anything haha! Do I risk losing it if I don't use it enough?

    71.73 total for me today from matched betting. Takes me over (Edit: blaming it on the time of day, but my sums weren't quite right, I'm ever so slightly under still) my initial 600 target for the month. With that in mind I'm going to increase my target to 1,000.

    yes, if you don't log in weekly and at least click on not anything, not bought anything, then they will close your account.

    they like you to check in weekly even if not bought but they do netflix/amazon/dvds/book now, so you could always put one of those in.

    I hope everyone had a good weekend.

    Up to 97.06, Mix of surveys, cashback and Eb@y. Need to up my game plan for 10 a day. Still plodding on with my EB@y listings, aim for 5 a day minimum and it's going well. It'll only bring in a few pounds but it all adds up.
