Thanks for following my journey.
June 2019 blogging and home income report
Please note, this blog post shares my total turnover for the month, before tax deductions and expenses. My expenses differ each month as some are annual or quarterly payments, however my average monthly business expenses, tax savings, national insurance, etc, are usually around £830. Deduct this from the total for an idea of my take-home pay.
From smallest to largest:
Top Cashback £1.58
We love Top Cashback and check it before buying or booking anything online to see if we can get cashback by using their link to go to the website instead. I also have a browser notifier that lets me know if a website I'm viewing offers cashback.

GreenJinn is a smartphone app which has digital coupons for supermarkets Tesco, Sainsbury's and Waitrose. Simply find a coupon you want to use, take a photo of your receipt once you've bought the item and within a day or so you'll get your cashback. You can then cash it out to your PayPal account once you reach £1.50.
Curve is a Mastercard that is linked to all your other cards. It basically saves you the hassle of carrying a bunch of cards around with you. You simply carry the Curve card and choose which of your cards you want to pay with using their app. It doesn't cost anything for the basic plan. You get cashback at your three chosen retailers for the first three months and then £5 cashback for you/your friend every time you refer anyone.

I do website testing at WhatUsersDo for £5 per test. I think they're now closed to new applicants as my sign up link isn't working. I've emailed them to find out but they've not replied yet.

Prolific Academic £11.22
I complete lots of studies online to help academics with their research. It's really interesting and the studies are so varied. Some only take one or two minutes.

Savings interest £18.73
I've decided to start adding my savings interest to my home income reports. It's money earned, in a way. The more you save the more you can earn and it takes some serious will power for most of us to save!
At the moment I have a joint savings builder and a personal savings builder that offer bonus interest rates for the first £10,000 in each account if you put at least £50 in per month. Once we max these then I'm going to start investing in an Investment ISA each month and look into some other options.
User Testing £46.05
This was a fair few tests as they are $10 each. It's website testing and really easy to do from home to make extra cash.

Personal eBay £70.04
There's a little bit of profit here, but fees and postage really eat into any eBay profits. I much prefer selling on Facebook Marketplace as there is no postage or fees, but eBay is still great for some things. Occasionally I list in both places and delete if something sells.
Here's what I sold on eBay:
- £26.70 puzzles and board games
- £32.54 clothing
- £10.80 books
Profit Accumulator referrals £73.78
This is from referring people to Profit Accumulator who I highly recommend for matched betting. I used them for 26 months and made over £5600 in profit in my spare time.
It's great to know other people are signing up and making money too.
They have a great referral scheme too, so if you love matched betting then you can make even more money by referring your friends and family.

Facebook Marketplace £305
Since getting rid of the kids playroom last month we still had more things to sell that didn't fit into their rooms such as their 'messy play' table and chairs, a canvas and train track set. Reuben also had two very similar scooters and doesn't need two, so we sold one. We got rid of empty storage tubs from the attic. We nearly have no junk in our attic now. Just a small corner of Ben's items that we need to sort, but barely anything. I also decided to minimise our garden as we don't need a 10 seater table. So I sold it pretty quickly on Facebook and repainted our pub style garden bench which is fine for us for now. I'm on a mission to reach our £10k savings goal and so I've been minimising the house loads and selling lots of things! We'll probably not own anything soon!!
Here's what I sold on Facebook Marketplace:
- £60 storage tubs
- £10 scooter
- £20 IKEA table and chairs
- £10 wooden train track
- £5 my little pony canvas
- £200 garden table and chairs
Blog writing £2,195.49
My most lucrative method for making money at home. My blogs are my full-time income and they take full-time hours to run!
Here's the breakdown of my blog income across my four blogs and their DA scores:
