    ~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!!!
    Make upto £10 a day - best thread ever.

    Hi everyone

    I did some extra work yesterday but won't get paid until the end of the month.

    I'm struggling a little with heat too so not feeling like doing anything. Might have a quick cool shower and see if that jump starts me.

    We buy books has got an extra 10% this weekend and I really should take advantage.

    I did get 1p interest the other day..every bit helps!

    Good evening all. Hope you are all well.
    I have £80 to add too my total from selling a few bits. I am listing more items this evening so hoping for a few more sales over the next couple of days.
    My biggest achievement is not buying a new outfit for a wedding on the weekend!I usually would have spent at least £100 on shoes, dress, bag and accessories so not sure if I am allowed to add that to my total as well!

    Glad to hear I'm not the only one struggling with the heat. I'm not in the mood to do any extra money making though I have just remembered I need to post something that sold on ebay over the weekend.

    Keep putting all my extra into the over paying the mortgage pot but it seems to be taking forever to reach the £500 point again.

    Photograph and list 3 items on local selling page

    uploaded all receipts to shopmium, checkoutsmart and shoppix (instead of leaving them in my purse or handbag) and took advantage of the offer on men's deodorants

    order books from library instead of buying

    Cash hasn't landed yet so I won't count it, however, I've recommended two people to switch to my BS so should get £200 within a month for that, did the same last year and made £300, and each person referred earned £100 themselves.
    It's a start!

    Hi

    i've actually stopped procrastinating today and got some stuff done.

    I've sold some books and dvds on music magpie. About £10, that I'll add when it arrives in the bank and I've given shpock a go. I've listed a few things, will see what happens.

    I tried to sell a couple of gift cards on zeek but it didn't like them, so a no-go there

    And I've been on swagbucks. I swear I end up spending more money than I earn on there. I've cleared all the questionnaires. I think I'm completely the wrong demografic as a middle aged white woman, so I barely get to finish one.
    How do you all make so much on there?

    Also, what's Mrs Mop?

    Sorry if Ive confused anyone with my Mrs Mop

    Its just what I put for the couple of hours cleaning I do at my mams house on a Monday.

    She is suffering quite badly with COPD (lung problems) and struggles to do the bigger cleaning jobs so I offered my services and she insists on paying me £20.

    Not there tomorrow though as they have guests. Will make the mast of extra time at the allotment.

    Just £5 swagbucks to add for me. Any newbies just starting out with swagbucks..............I'm afraid to say its going down hill fast and lots of users are giving up on it. I will stick with it for the easy stuff but wont beat myself up to reach any targets.

    Evening

    There does seem to be a few changes for the worse on swagbucks at the moment. I have cashed out a £10 agc today but like you KM I won!!!8217;t be busting a gut to reach targets.

    Well done on the bs referrals Nicki_Sue. I!!!8217;m in the middle of changing banks again. Wouldn!!!8217;t have bothered again so soon except the one I changed to 6 months ago was TSB. Enough said!

    Put in my solar electricity reading today so should get another cheque from them soon.

    I'm sorry I haven't popped in for ages, I've not been on MSE at all for a while. My signature figures are months out of date so I'd better do something about editing them. Even though I'm not doing the challenge any more I don't want to lose touch with you all.


    It seems very quiet on here now, I suspect it was my inane rabbiting that inflated the post count. Keep up the good work all you loyal stalwarts. It would be such a shame for this lovely challenge to fizzle out.


    Take care of yourselves xxx

    Hi

    I'm still waiting for money to reach my account to my total is still £3.01....lol I'm not going to make my millions!

    I've had a couple of 'offers' from shpock, but I think I've priced my items fairly so I'm not really interested.
    I think it's going to be hard old slog selling them. But fingers crossed.

    Other than that, I'm pottering away at my everyday job, and relying on my part time job to bring in the extra funds, when I can get a shift.

    I think I'm going to have to upgrade my pc sooner rather than later cause it doesn't like any kind of video etc. I think that might help going forward.

    Hope everyone is doing okay.
