You may have been reading my blog for some time, or you're a new comer. Hello. I really want to hit home to you about how you can make extra money. There's always something you can do, but knowing where to start can be difficult. So here, I present you with possibly the best blog post ever. I'm going to show you how to make £1,000.

You see, £1,000 is just 100 £10s. And I've even come up with a list of 100 things to do that should, on average, net you £10. Now obviously some of them will earn you more (switching banks to First Direct nets you £100!), and some of them may not be relevant to you, or you may earn less than the £10. But hopefully it all evens out so that you can make at least £1,000.

This idea came from a thread on Money Saving Expert, set up by Little Miss Uni Debt. The challenge is that people set themselves a target – either a savings target or debt that they need to pay off, and then split it into 1% goals. To make £1,000 you need just 100 ideas to make £10. And here they are, all ready for you to start earning! Bookmark this post and keep coming back to it. It is great for giving you ideas, or for you to keep on track with everything.

  1. Thanks for this. We have lots of books that my husband is always moaning about. I will have a look into selling some of those. Hopefully they will take kids books too as my daughter has got so many that she is getting rid of, we were going to charity shop it but I will try this first.

    Your blog is awesome btw.


    1. Be sure to work your way through all the sites. Zapper offered me 30p for a book that Amazon Trade in gave me £11 for.

      Thank you 🙂

  2. hi, love the blog!
    just wondering do any of the bingo site give cashback for signing up or is it only if you deposit cash?


  3. does trade-ins for textbooks so US users may be very happy to use them for that. Some of the deals are excellent.
