We are officially halfway through the month already which means it’s time for my November goals update! I must say since I started doing these posts it’s helped me keep so much more accountable and focused on working towards them.
- Make £300 in side hustles – £256 so far!
As you can see I am well underway to smashing this goal again just as I did in October. The majority of this is from Matched Betting and £50 from my Virtual Assistant set fee, but there are a couple of eBay sales, and survey earnings in there too. As usual I will do a full breakdown of my November earnings at the end of the month. I am also working my way through 20Cogs which is a website where you can earn cash by signing up to services and casino sites. I have not counted any of my earnings so far in this until I have completed it as you cannot get a payout until it is done.
I plan to do my own write up on 20Cogs when completed, but if you wish to know more, I found this post from Money Savvy Daddy really helpful to get started with it.
- Get my head around more complex matched betting
I have not started on accumulators or horse racing refunds yet mainly because I am working through casino and bingo offers. Some of these are generally more high risk as they require wagering but I am combining this with earning sign up rewards with 20Cogs (see above). The 20 Cogs sign ups are always a higher payout than the wagering, usually £5 more so as long as I complete all 20 Cogs these offers are risk free. I still aim to have a go at horse racing refunds this month.
- Complete my Christmas Shopping
As I stated in my Black Friday post, I don’t start my Christmas shopping until then unless I see any amazing bargains along the way. Although most of my 3 year old’s presents have been bought throughout the year on special offers. I am well under way in compiling ideas for everyone else so I’m sure I will be on track to achieve this by the end of the month!
- House mini de-clutter
I have really done well with this without too much effort! I have reorganised some kitchen cupboards and bagged up items to donate or sell on eBay. See my post about seeing “rubbish” here! I have also reorganised my wardrobe / workspace and managed to get rid of 2 very old 5 drawer chests that were getting disorganised and falling apart. One was replaced with a newer chest of drawers from the spare room (which is now much more spacious) and the other was replaced with a 4 box Ikea Kallax for eBay stock. I am very lucky to have such a big wardrobe space but as we designed the extension on our house this was one of my pre requisites!
- Blogging goals – Pinterest
Yet again I am nowhere near achieving this! At the moment I am focusing on working through a branding course as a beta tester. There are time restraints on this so it is now my blogging priority for the month. I am hoping to try and get a bit of time invested in Pinterest too.
How are you doing with your November goals so far? Let me know in the comments!
