    Can I eat well by earning from surveys? 10th Mar 18 at 9:45 AM

    To begin with I have to save every spare penny I have as my friend who I live with has asked me to move out in June. (He wants his house back.)

    So I have done a budget to try and see how much I can save by then. However, its less then I need.
    Since the 2nd of March I have earned 45 doing surveys

    So the aims are:
    Earn what ever income I can doing surveys. I do Curious Cat, Qmee and Swagbucks
    Every penny I earn via surveys from now until June 21st goes into my grocery account. This is my food budget.
    I am not allowed to spend money on food out of this.
    I do have a full stocked cupboard and freezer.
    My plan is to post my daily earnings and also spends.

    I will post my first total after 10pm. (Thats what when I do my final survey.)
    Anyone is welcome to join.

    I would say it is possible but by no means guaranteed.

    Yes I agree. I have decide to include a 20 buffer (1 a day) from my other budget.

    Do you have a sainsbury's near you? If so I suggest doing e-rewards surveys which will reward you with a 5 nectar voucher when you make 1000 points - most of the surveys tend to be 100-250 each and I get 5-15 a week easily.
    Actually even if you don't have a sainsbury's near you it's still worthwhile as you can spend Nectar points at Debenhams and Argos which might free up money for your grocery budget.
    You have to be 'invited' but if you already have a nectar card you can access your invite through their website.
