    Make up to 10 a day January 2019 31st Dec 18 at 1:47 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody

    So, new year, new financial goals! Let’s see what we can achieve together in 2019.

    This is the 137th month of this challenge, which was first started by Batgirl, in September 2007. Here is a link to the original thread as I am sure some of you are interested to read where it all began.

    https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=542835

    Thanks to Batgirl for starting it and for everyone who has kept it going for 11 years! I would especially like to thank Aesop who ran the thread for the last few years.

    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 up to 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.


    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
    Survey income
    Profit from selling on eBay etc
    Cashback
    And lots of other ways too

    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.

    This board can move pretty quickly, so be sure to subscribe and read it regularly.

    So who wants to join us?

    Official MoneySavingExpert insert, 18 Jan:

    For more ideas on ways to earn extra cash, please see the Boost Your Income guide.

    Good luck everyone and thanks to shariann for the original post!

    I'd like to try for at least 1 a day please. So far I've at least got the first daily goal on Swagbucks for 8 days (was 5 days in a row). That's something.

    Just wondering what people's thoughts were on what to sell.

    I've cleared through my wardrobe, as has my partner, and I have four items of clothing which are designer and near perfect condition. I also have two big bin bags full to the brim, probably one of those has sellable but not high value clothing at all. Is it worth the hassle of selling? I imagine postage and complaints about not being near new would make it a waste of time... my gut is saying let them go and get them out of the house and just focus on selling a few key bits?

    Are you on Facebook? That's quite hassle free (normally!) and you could take a few photos and list and see what you get.

    eBay the fees are very high, but could be worth seeing what designer items have sold for in the past.

    Good luck

    Sold an item on eBay tonight, not sure if all the fees make this worth the hassle!

    But it's another 1.63 profit and I've transferred PayPay over to my bank account already.

    Thanks MushyPeas I'll take another look before we leave the house tomorrow morning and see if there are some other bits worth selling. I don't mind trying facebook or gumtree now I think of it, ebay just always seems a hassle for clothes or larger items! I've also decided to offer two of the new scarves in the bag to a friend before getting rid of them as they are lovely, I just have a million!

    I went into Boots for the first time in what must be a couple of years and found that I have 7.41 in Boots points, I didn't think that I had any, so I'm counting those towards my total , and 17p roadkill plus 1.02 from imutual so 14.86/35 so far - nearly halfway to my total so pretty well on track

    Morning

    I took some clothes to cash 4 clothes yesterday and made 7.10, so a total of 57.10 so far for the month.

    It's a slow month for me as I tackle the jet lag and general run down/tiredness that comes from this time of the year.

    But, I'm making notes of websites and ideas to give a go
