    ~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!!!

    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

    First of all thanks for the kind words of welcome, as for the quietness of this sub I won't let that bother me, and I agree the main thing is that we try. I also agree that £10 per day does not seem a lot but I think it's more getting in a routine thats my issue. I recently bought a diary so that I can organise my day better and also that I allocate time to do certain tasks i.e. take pictures and list on eBay, however I only have a really new account (it's only got 3 feedback ) that it is going to take a little bit of time for me to build up the account, however I am hoping that once I've established the account I might change it to a business account and see if I can start reselling items for profit rather than selling my own items ,

    I also agree that I won't be able to make money everyday, ironically my next set of items are due to end for another week so if you don't hear much from my thats why , however I will update anyway even if I don't have a sale as it could motivate me to list more items. Again thanks for the kind introduction I hope you're month goes well and you make loads of money. Even though I have rambled on a bit I did make a sale yesterday which after fees and postage would leave me with a profit of £9.83

    I agree about the quietness on here, KM, and also hope everyone is OK. I'm really worried about Lynne though as we haven't heard from her for weeks now. I know her Spanish move was imminent but it's so unlike her not to post anything at all at the start of a new month's thread.


    Well done on your tips. It must be an exciting time now as your holiday gets nearer. I really envy you. It's donkeys years since we were last abroad

    Thanks CBC. So looking forward to it. To any regular reader of this thread it would seem I have always had holidays abroad but it hasnt always been the case. Up until three years ago we went abroad once I think in twenty years. Mainly because of the expense of taking a family of 4 abroad and my son not really liking the sun at all.
    We did sun holidays in caravans and have been all over UK which if you get the weather is just as nice as abroad.
    Now the children are grown and do their own thing, we are making the most of being able to go abroad. I would do it even more if funds allowed. One day when the mortgage is gone.

    Lynne!!!! Where are you?????

    I'm really sorry not been around folks.

    I had a University assignment due in last Thursday, had some bad news 2 weeks before that,which threw me. Spoke to my tutor who hinted at giving me an extension which I didn't agree to as I don't want to constantly be getting extensions on my assignments.

    So I stayed up all night, and rushed home from work to spend more time getting it completed. I submitted it all on time.

    Good new I passed with a B! Which I am pleased with although I should have got an A but that's life for me these days. Always intefering with my degree.

    So I started logging back on, trying to catch up, and I have now come down with a dreadful head cold. One of those wooly ones.

    I didn't pick up on a mistake someone had made at work and spent all day chasing my tail to only realise as I was leaving they had made a mistake. no worries, will fix it tomorrow.

    I checked Lynnejk profile and she hadn't logged in for a while. i have no contact details for her, so we can only PM her and hope she can see them through emails and hope all is well with her.



    our little cheerleading squad led by carbootcrazy will have to do a bit more cheerleading for a few more days, sorry ladies and gents. I will be back soon. xx

    ps I tell a lie, I just went to PM her and she did log in 3 days ago. so send those pms, she hopefully sees them on her emails.

    Evening all

    Just got in finally. My brother has had a setback and is back in hospital so went in to see him straight from work. He is looking very weary and is quite uncomfortable but already feeling better than he did when he went in so hopefully will be stronger again soon.

    The parking at the hospital is so expensive! It costs more to visit a sick person than to go shopping which seems a bit ridiculous!

    I have a day out in London tomorrow which was a birthday present and the forecast is good so hopefully that will be fun and be a bit of time out from everything.

    No money made today and planning an early night so will pop in again soon. Going to try to work out how to pm lynnejk before I fall asleep.

    Take care everyone and good luck with all your money making

    Sorry to hear that, Aesop. I hope it wasn't anything that you couldn't/can't remedy. Well done on the 'B' score. All things considered and what a hectic and stressful life you lead I consider that's a great achievement. Most people wouldn't be able to cope with any studying at all if they had as much else to cram in to every day as you do. You should feel proud of it and not beat yourself up about it not being an 'A'. Sending hugs your way

    Well done Aesop on your results!! Dont be despondent about not achieving an A. You have done fantastic with everything else you have on your plate and in the big scheme of things.....Grades are irrelevant.

    There will be no more moneymaking to add for me this month. The things us women have to do before we even set foot on a plane. Got my hair coloured, toe nails painted, finger nails painted, waxed to within an inch of my life and now skint.
    Oh to be a man. Just throw your clothes in a case and go.

    Dont go till Monday morning but will say tara now and wish you all a good few weeks of moneymaking

    Have lovely holidays, KM and Rosie. You both really deserve them and I hope amongst the fun you still find plenty of time to chill out and relax


    Did a car boot sale this morning, I'll be rid of the clutter one of these days years if it kills me. It was cool and misty first thing and I was glad of that as I don't get on too well in the sun. It was baking hot by 11 though and I'm glad to be home. Going to have a shower and a few cups of tea. Unloading the car can wait for another day, I'm not going out anywhere tomorrow. Made £93.15 and managed to sell some big items (only very low value though) which has given me a lot more space


    Enjoy the sunshine everyone
