    Make 10 A Day August 2019 1st Aug 19 at 10:10 AM
    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 144th 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 more than 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. Check out the boost your income guide on this website for lots of ideas.

    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?

    Hi, please could I join the challenge? I already know I have some overtime due this month so will go for 20 a day and hopefully that will spur me on! Used to do this challenge regularly many moons ago.

    Managed 3 hours overtime on Sunday and going to squeeze in another hour tonight hopefully, won;t get that until next month but it's good to have it in the pot! Have done a handful of surveys today as well too but am well out of the loop with them - I used to be signed up with loads a few years back but the majority never really amounted to much. Have signed up with Prolific as have read good things on here about them so fingers crossed.

    Yes Prolific is definitely one of the better ones, no screening out, etc

    5 from Swagbucks which I haven't touched in ages - I always struggled with it in the past despite reading the thread on here many, many times. Does anyone have any tips?
