Week 19 of the money mental earnings challenge – the start of another month

Week 19 of the money mental earnings challenge – the start of another month

Spread the love

Hello readers! And welcome to week 19 of the money mental earnings challenge! This week sees the start of a new month. And there’s a twist in the challenge! I’ve accquired a storage unit to store all my unlisted stock in which is costing me £130 a month so now as well as earning £430 a month I will also need to add in an addition £130 of costs meaning I’ll have to earn a massive £560 a month for the challenge. Wish me luck!

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 £560 a month to cover the costs of my car loan, car insurance, road tax and newly accquired storage unit. Each week I will be reporting on my progress towards this monthly challenge. I’ll be using a variety of different sources to earn money details of which I’ve written about in this post here.

If you want to see how I did in the last week of the challenge you can find out by clicking here.

Each week 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.
