Week 21 of the money mental earnings challenge. Plodding on!

Spread the love

Hello readers! And welcome to week 21 of the money mental earnings challenge! This week sees more progress in the challenge! But am I on track for my month end target? Read on to find out!

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.

So here’s week 21!

Electrolysis hair removal pen – cost £2 from an indoor car boot, sold for £19.99 including shipping. Total profit after fees £12.50 (I was really pleased with this sale as this only had one hair removal tip with it instead of the normal three so I thought it might hang about for a bit).

Facebook income:

No facebook sales this week.

Total facebook income: £0.00

Other income:

No other income this week.

Total other income: £0.00

Week 21 Total Income: £131.

A fairly average week for me on the sales front but one in which a lot of slow moving stock went which was pleasing. Adding this week’s challenge income to the previous weeks challenge income for the month gives me a total for the month so far of £380.50 towards my £560 challenge target. It’s not looking good for meeting the challenge total this month with a massive £180 still needed. Fingers crossed I start to see some of my higher profit items selling soon!

Thanks for reading.
