    ~Make upto 10 a day July 2018 ~ everybody most welcome 1st Jul 18 at 12:12 AM
    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 131st 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. I will be handing over the reins at the end of this month to other challengers. I just want to say it has been a lot of fun and I have learnt a lot whilst doing it.

    It is only natural for the thread to evolve and change in a different direction and for new ideas to be explored.

    The same with the challengers in this thread. Some become debt free, mortgage free, life takes a new path, new challenges, etc.

    It is definitely worth joining, reading and joining in. It has helped so many people over the years and it has been amazing.

    People will be missed and are alway missed when they stop posting. You are forever in our hearts and on this challenge.

    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.

    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 Aesop. Could you put me down for 10 a day please?

    I'm off the starting blocks with 165 from Hatton Garden Metals. I sent in a couple of rings that were broken and at the last minute chucked in a thin bracelet I was given years ago but had a broken chain. I didn't think much of the bracelet as in gold-wise (a gift from abroad with no proper stamp on it) but it turned out to be 14ct!
    Sent the gold Monday lunchtime Special Delivery, remittance notice receive by 11.30am the next day, money in my bank by 12.15pm.
    Impressive!

    Hi all,

    Shariann, my thoughts are with you.
    Aesop, hope things get less manic soon.
    CBC - missing your car boot stories, I don't have car boot opportunities in my area so have always been slightly jealous!

    Checking in with 12.10 off the total and just used a 10 voucher off a pair of jeans for my daughter so I am on the right track.

    so, 22.10 off 250 leaves 227.90 to go!

    Sorry to hear such sad news.


    I have got 3 halifax reward and 2.59 interest so far, so that is 5.59.

    Have been using SB for a while, so making more of an effort with that. Also having a go at Qmee.

    Feeling hopeful I will manage 31 for the month, no idea how you all manage such high targets though!

    Morning all

    Hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine.

    I have cashback to add of 6.33 from 123 lite account and 90 slots win profit. So total for July 96.33.

    Still need to finalise my June total.

    Any swaggers out there don!!!8217;t forget to collect your monthly bonus. Mine is never very much as I am very erratic with Swagbucks but it all helps.

    Take care xx

    Morning Nicki. You're an early bird!

    No more funds to report here but getting lots of free fruit from the allotment and hopefully some free flowers soon as the summer bulbs I planted there are doing well.

    Bit fed up of this hot weather now. I love spending a few hours at the allotment but it gets too uncomfortable when its weather like this.

    Hope everyone else is doing ok.
