Money making challenge update

For the last 3 months I have been doing a money making challenge. I did ok, but I know I could have done much better if I had not had to move and fix my house right in the middle of the challenge causing it to be put on the back burner.

Still I did make $483 through a few ways
1.) I bought things to sell. The first few things I bought to resell did not go so well, but other things did.
2.) I made an ebook which was going well then I had some problems with the host of said book so I pulled it.
3.) I did a few odd jobs here and there such as haircuts and cleaning.

Once I made a bit I paid for advertising on another blog which worked well and will run for 12 months.

I have also managed to organise a few things for next year, so whilst technically I only had the challenge open until 30th Nov, realistically the effects of the challenge will continue on for some time.

As such I will be continuing the money making challenge. I am not hugely focused on it right now because I have an assignment and assessment to complete soon as well as installing the kitchen (we ripped ours out the other night) and a few other things in the house.

I also never got to do my garage sale due to so many other things always on but we have set a date for not this Saturday but next, so provided nothing comes up I will make a bit of money then. I have already begun to place garage sale items in one area. We had things in storage here we wanted to sell, but it was quite hard doing it interstate.

I will be cleaning, organising and pricing everything and will let you all know how it goes. I have lots on in the next few weeks so it should be interesting.


  1. Well I turned $0 into $140, invested that plus a little extra and turned it into about $1000. Ok so it happened on the 1 Dec but near enough is good enough right? I'm investing at least half of that back into my business so I can turn it into more! Thanks for starting the challenge it helped me lots.

  2. Thats awesome. Dec1st is near enough, lol.

    Have fun with the money and growing your business.
