CASH FOR CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE
Shall We Side Hustle £1000 by Christmas?
If you have been following my blog awhile, you will know that I love Christmas.
My Christmas preparations start in January when I buy ALL of the reduced decorations and wrapping paper. By June I am watching Polar Express at any given opportunity, and by mid-October, I will be ready to crack on with watching ELF for the 50th time.
I wrote a post last year including my tips for a great Christmas on a budget. I will be using some of the ways to make money mentioned in that post to make extra cash for this year's Christmas challenge.
So the aim is to make £1000 in EXTRA cash between 25th September-25th December.
I have set a target that is achievable and will give us a comfortable Christmas sticking to a budget. I won't be going crazy and spending a £1000 on toys for Willow - This target includes the money I will spend in the January Sales for next Christmas, all of the food shopping expenses after I use my Nectar points, presents, and some other exciting plans that I will be able to share in December!
I will include -
- Mystery Shopping
- Task Apps
- Survey Earnings (Including Vouchers)
- Phone Apps
- Web Search Evaluator
- ebay sales
- Matched Betting
- Many more to be added!
I won't include-
- PAYE regular Audit Work
- Earnings from Earning by the Sea
I will update this post weekly with my totals, and I will be sharing lots of content with ways you can increase your income in time for a debt-free Christmas!
If you would like to join in the 'Cash for Christmas' challenge, set yourself a realistic target depending on the time you have, and how much money you need to save for a comfortable Christmas.
I've had a great start with an eBay sale, and I've been accepted for a Speech Recording task.. More details on that later!
