    *Make upto 10 a day April 2018* 30th Mar 18 at 1:22 AM
    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 128th 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 all. Just logging in to pass the time really. Was awake worrying about baby most the night as I could see he was getting worse.

    Went to the doctors first thing and then transferred to A&E. They are operating this afternoon. It's a very simple procedure, but it's horrible to contemplate given he's only fourteen months.

    Hopefully this should sort everything out for him. Just have to wait around now for it. Baby is so upset and exhausted he has fallen asleep on me.

    Fingers crossed it'll all be fine.

    I have an ebay profit of 7.57 and a Tax refund of 22.40 to add taking my total to 73.37 so only a little behind at the moment. I was hoping for a much better tax refund than that though so that's a little disappointing. Need to get on the selling!

    It's horrible when our children are unwell or upset and it doesn't get any better as they get older!

    My poor mum is in pieces over my brother even though he's in his fifties, he's still her baby and I had my strapping great 22 year old ds2 crying on my shoulder yesterday because he'd had a bad day at work and got told off by his boss ( he does have learning difficulties so can be a bit over sensitive)

    Hey all. Thanks for all your good wishes. Baby's surgery went well and we have been discharged now with some follow up appointments. I'm taking the rest of the week off work to look after him. Need to try and feed him up as he's got a bit thin poor thing.

    Hopefully it'll all be ok now. I am completely exhausted (both lack of sleep and mentally).

    I hope everyone is having a good money making month. I saw there was a new Swago board to be submitted by Friday I think - it's the one you can do all the squares on as you click through to shopping sites. I tried it earlier whilst being stuck under a sleeping baby for 3 hours and just seems to be one with a glitch on at the moment that doesn't work. Hopefully that will get fixed.

    Jess - Is it the "Marriott" square that is the problem? - it was for me yesterday, I clicked on it again today and it still stayed pink but did allow me to submit the full board.

    Oh dear Jess - sorry to hear about your little one. Glad the operation went well, and hopefully things will be on the up soon. Thanks for the Swago tip My wife started her new job last Tuesday, working Mon-Wed, which mean our little one goes to Grandad's Mon-Wed. He never feeds/sleeps through the day as well as when my wife was off on maternity, so is a lot more grouchy, and has started waking up again through the night. He had been going from about 7pm - 6am, but now he's usually up around 10/11pm and again at 3am/4am. Just when we were getting used to having a good night sleep again

    Haven't been on here since Saturday night, so I've got a few days of matched betting to report, and a couple of other bits and bobs.

    I know I'm a bit late to the party but can I join for 150 for the rest of the month?

    My lovely work told me on the day before the end of term that they were slashing my hours (again) until the end of the school year so its going to be a toughie!!

    Have started off by listing 12 things on ebay today and swagging my butt off

    Morning all!!

    Can we add 480 to my total today?? Not sure if it!!!8217;s actually ok to add...my sons dad has just randomly put 480 in the bank for backdated child support money. And committed to an extra 20 a week payment.
    Not going to count the weekly but I!!!8217;m counting the big payment, popping it over to the 16th birthday fund.
    Very nice surprise, let!!!8217;s see if young lad gets the 20 a week...he might stop bugging me for PlayStation games and takeaway !!!8220;cos there!!!8217;s nothing to eat in this house!!!8221;

    Well.
    Cleaning out a drawer resulted in finding a bunch of euros. Haven!!!8217;t been in that drawer for years. And haven!!!8217;t needed euros for about 6 years so they!!!8217;ve been there a while!
    124.50 euros which is about 105 (putting the 105 to my total)
    Also a few bits of real money in there, 26

    So 131 to add to the total.
    That!!!8217;s my 3 bits of good luck for the month I think. Although I!!!8217;ll happily take more if there!!!8217;s any more due!!
