Week 1 of the money mental car payment challenge – how did I do?

Spread the love

Hello readers! Today is the first of the weekly updates on the Money Mental Car Payment challenge. For those of you are unfamiliar with the challenge and what I’m trying to achieve you may want to start off by reading this post here.

The target is to make £430 a month to cover the costs of my car loan, car insurance, and road tax. Each week I will be reporting on my progress towards this target. I’ll be using a variety of different sources to earn money details of which I’ve written about in this post here.

I’ll give a breakdown of what I’ve earned and how I’ve earned it before. As previously mentioned my main source of income to support the challenge will be buying and selling goods on eBay so for reporting purposes I will include details of what items I sold on eBay, how much it cost me, how much I sold it for and how much profit I made after fees. The last figure will be rounded down to the nearest 50p for ease.

So without further ado here’s week 1!
