£2,014 in 2014 Extra Income Challenge (March)

Back in December I joined Sara (A Frugal Wife) in the £2,014 in 2014 Challenge*. The idea is to make and/or save an extra £2,014 throughout 2014.

*I’m doing the challenge December to November because of how our budget is set up.

March Extra Income Total: £313.68
- £300 Jewelry sold
- £13.68 Cashback (Quidco)

Money saved not spent: £0.00!
- £0.00!

Money saved, not spent is from our budget categories (ignoring the mortgage payment).

I finally sold some jewelry I’ve been holding onto for a long time and it really boosted my total this month! I also got paid a little cash back.

It’s early days to have made any progress in April, but I’m hoping my Decluttering Challenge will help me to add a little cash towards my totals.

Talking of totals here’s a screenshot showing you what my challenge spreadsheet looks like on one side. The other side (not shown as it’s too big) is just columns for all the different ways I’m making a little extra money.

£2,014 in 2014 Spreadsheet

The spreadsheet shows my monthly total, my cumulative total (£666.07), the month by month target/goal, and how much I still have to make (£1,347.93). Keeping it up to date really helps me to stay on track of the numbers.

Are you doing the challenge? If so are you making good progress?
Hat tip to Sara for starting the challenge this year

£2,014 in 2014 Extra Income Challenge (February)

Back in December I joined Sara (A Frugal Wife) in the £2,014 in 2014 Challenge*. The idea is to make and/or save an extra £2,014 throughout 2014.

*Our annual budget starts in December, so I’m doing this challenge until the end of November.

February Extra Income Total: £97.07
- £6.88 Book sales
- £0.19 Interest
- £90.00 Cash Back

Money saved, not spent*: £6.90!

*Money saved, not spent is from our budget categories (ignoring the mortgage payment).

My total for February was not too bad, but I’m still way behind the target. March should be better though as I have a couple of large items to sell.

2014 Totals: £352.39/£2,014

£2,014 in 2014 Extra Income Challenge (Update)

Back in December I joined Sara (A Frugal Wife) in the £2,014 in 2014 Challenge*. The idea is to make and/or save an extra £2,014 throughout 2014.

*Because our annual budget starts in December, I’m doing this challenge until the end of November.

January Extra Income Total: £18.07
- £18.03 Book sales
- £0.04 Interest

Money saved, not spent*: £0.00!

*Money saved, not spent is from our budget categories (ignoring the mortgage payment).

My total for January is £18.07. Not a great month for me. In all honesty I didn’t give the challenge enough attention, but I’m hoping to change that this month. I have stuff ready to eBay just need to get myself organised to do it! I did put at least £9 into my sealed pot in January though, so not too bad.

 2014 Totals: £248.42/£2,014
