In July I set myself my biggest earning challenge to date – to earn an extra £2,000 on top of my full time job. Week 1 saw me earn £954.84, week 2 got me to £1,541,79 and week 3 saw me more than beating the challenge with £2,148.95.
I wanted to keep ploughing through for the final week of July, but then I got really sick. The kind of sick where you barely leave the bathroom and you lose 7lbs in a few days (sorry guys!). So I was forced to stop.
That makes my total for July a massive £2,148.95.
This money has already been put into our savings accounts, meaning that we are at 21% of our overall savings goals – that's for Christmas money, an emergency fund, a house deposit, holidays and more.
I am extremely proud of reaching my goal, but August is going to be a heck of a lot easier, with a challenge of £1,000. I have been exploring matched betting lately, and two weeks in, an hour a night, I've made over £700 (not counted towards this challenge). I am really excited to bring you a blog post about it all soon – it is a risk free and tax free way to make some extra money and I can't stop telling people about it!
Let me know if you'd like an update for my August challenge!
