    ~Make upto £10 a day May 2018~ 1st May 18 at 12:20 AM
    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 129th 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[/URL] 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!!!
    Make £10 a day March 2018 £40.38

    £21.50 Cashback received into my bank account. Was from RAC Breakdown cover, supposed to take 26 weeks to pay out but arrived in half of that


    Did a Pinecone survey yesterday so that's a little payment to expect by next week. Am also tantalisingly close to a £50 payout on YouGov. Boy has that been a long slog! My PPI cheque hasn't cleared yet, maybe tomorrow eh? I was sure there was something else I'm waiting for but can't remember what it is. Not like me to forget about money due. The sun must have gone to my head. Looking hopeful for a good month but as it's several one-off big payments I don't ever expect another month like it.


    have a good week, everyone. I hope work hasn't gone down too badly in this heat if any of you have had to go back today.
    Original Debt: £56804 (@02/13). Now: £9111. Under £10K at long last.

    2 of my 6 items on ebay sold. I won't add the money till I've deducted postage and fees.

    They only went for their starting prices, which I'd set low enough to entice bidders, not thinking that would be it. I'm not sure I really get on with ebay...or selling! It's probably why I've done overtime!

    Anyway, I think I'm going to give shpock a go and I'm going to try and get my swagbucks goal done daily.

    I seriously don't know how you all do so much. I get home from work and all I can think of is slobbing in front of the tv until bed time. How do you find the motivation ? :/

    These dont put big amounts in the coffers but I feel like I am doing something and every little helps. Then when I have the time and motivation I will look on prolific and do some surveys which are usually interesting but find I need to sit quietly on my own to do these. I dont check on there often enough and think I could earn more over all if I concentrated on them a bit more but as I say........sometimes Im brain dead after a busy day at work so just click click click click.

    Have just moved my earnings from paypal to add to my tips and other bits and bobs. Had £400 so as we are a bit flush in the current account at the moment, added another 100 to make a £500 mortgage overpayment. Will update when my next mortgage payment goes out.

    Still waiting for a swagbucks paypal payout that is taking its time.

    Morning

    I've moved my ebay earnings from paypal. It comes to just over £50 with postage costs taken out but I don't know how much ebay fees will be. Is there any way of finding out?
    I may just put £50 towards my total and have done with it.

    I was expecting to be paid from my weekend job today but I've not received anything. I'm not sure if I've myself confused with the payment runs because of them not paying me last month. I'm going to give them a ring today and see whats happening.

    I've also relisted my items that didn't sell on ebay. On 'buy it now' and I'll just let it tick over and see what happens.

    Due to some family stuff, I've had no time this week to get any surveys done so it's all a bit lacking.

    I found the fees on ebay. £6.37! Wow! Who knew you paid fees on the postage...I'm pretty speechless.

    S minus those, I've made £45.96 so far for May. It has felt like a lot of work for what is essentially 2 days of money.

    Still, it's money I didn't have last month so I'm going to try and look on the positive

    Good evening all. Just been catching up on your money making and sunshine shenanigans. well done everyone. This is a fabulous group for motivation. I have started reciept hogging and am nearly at 1000 pig points... 2/3 of the way there to my first cash out.

    Have been busy with hours at work (zero hours contracts suck BUT at the moment I have 15-20 hours a week so am looking forward to payday)

    I have been a busy bee... finally sold our trailer (havent had a towbar since octobers car change! £250 thanks eBay... (on their £1 fee deal too haha)

    Managed amazon book sale, facebook sales, MOCs, Nectar points (with extra points coupons too - all in my xmas pot), quidco cashback, bank interest, DH pay rise and a 3% pension increase.

    It was slowly adding up...then I got another PPI letter from the claims company we are using...I had been told I had NO PPI and yet LLoyds have found now some... yay... so after the claims company take their 30% cut!!! We will have a lovely wedge left (Bye bye CC final balance woohoo) when it finally gets paid to us (apparently in the next 2 weeks) we will have a rather respectable May total of £2529.71 after fees, taxes and other expenses have been removed.

    I can't wait to add my wage packet too...Might actually break even this month. FINALLY... and I have my driveway back... no more ugly trailer (no more mouldy 'car boot loot' store either)

    Wow, Milly-Ann-Molly, that's a mind-blowing amount and we're not even halfway through the month yet. Congratulations


    Well done everyone else who has made any extra so far this month


    My two mega (to me anyway) payment cheques have now cleared and the money safely in my bank account. This is probably a once in a lifetime amount to make in one month but I'm enjoying the feeling of having it while it lasts

    • £187 from a real life auction (after their exorbitant fees have been deducted)
    • £663 from a PPI claim on a very small, short-lived loan
    Back now to my usual scraping around for scraps, such as roadkill or MOCs. Had no luck with WBB and Ziffit at the weekend, they either didn't want my books or offered something like 30p each. I can get more than that for them at a car boot so I didn't bother sending a boxful off for a pittance.

    welcome to the thread. It's been a bit quiet on here lately, some months it's really buzzing. Please don't let it put you off if nothing seems to be happening much on here at the moment. I expect people have a lot to do now the weather is picking up and haven't much time to post. I'm sure everyone is trying to make money though


    A lot of us start thinking it would be impossible to make £10 a day but it's surprising how it all adds up once we set our minds to it. You don't have to make £10 every day, just whatever you can and then total it up at the end of the month. Sometimes some of us go for several days without making a penny but it tends to even itself out over the month.


    Good luck with your eBaying. I know I should do more of it myself but I really hate it and find every excuse under the sun to put it off

    Donít know why I am awake so early I expect it is because I have lots on my mind - as usual! My brother had a hospital appointment yesterday which was more positive than expected and he is going to start some chemotherapy- just waiting to hear when.

    Lots of other stuff too but thatís the main thing running around my head.

    In money making news I have £90 slots profit £12.97 mb and 10p citizenme to add bringing my total to £242.73

    Hope everyone is ok and just busy with real life. Sending hugs to all who need them xxx

    I'm awake very early too, shariann. Nice to see someone else is up and about. Great news about your brother. I hope everything goes well for him in the weeks to come. Big hugs to you all.


    As I was up I decided to see if there was a study available for me on Prolific. I love that site but have been very remiss at logging on recently. Couldn't believe it but there was a £5 study I was eligible for. Quite long but fun to do. Not only that but the money was actually approved and credited within 10 minutes of completion. If you do Prolific go over there now and see if there are any places left. There were lots available when I did it. I can't recall the subject title, something like 'individual differences to explain real world events'. Good luck

    Another early riser here. Been up since 6 which is highly unlike me.

    I have to nip to sainsburys for a bit of shopping and new knickers. Fill up the car. Draw some cash out. Nip to the allotment. Pick some sandals up from Clarks and then be at work for 12.

    Good news re your brother Shariann!

    Right I best get shifted.

    Hi everyone,

    Hope everyone is ok.
    I haven't done very much, quite stressful at work just lately.
    I have sold a couple of items on ebay, & sphock and some OT at work resulting in £82 and bringing me up to the total of £119 so far this month.
    Hope everyone has this warm weather we has in the east of England xx
