Money On The Side {9th-15th October 2017}

It’s time for week 8 of  my money on the side series where I share with you all the ways I have made money on the side and brought in little treats for my family. Despite being poorly most of the week I’ve been fairly productive. I have managed to get ahead with blog content and secure some sponsored work too. I’ve also been able to cash out from several earning sites and treat myself to a coffee machine.

Some important things to note before I begin.

All earnings from income streams including blogging, surveys, focus groups etc must be declared for tax purposes. I recommend using a spreadsheet to keep track it makes completing your tax return a lot easier.

In the UK prizes are not taxable. 

For freebies I will try to include links where I can, lots are time sensitive offers so may have expired by the time I post. 


£35 blogging income.

£16 Pinecone Research surveys.

£5.74 Prolific Academic.

£8.05 Quidco.

£3.14 Qmee.

£3 Populus Live surveys.

Blog Reviews

I had a few things arrive for my Christmas gift guides. I can’t show you those though, I don’t want to spoil the surprise.

I’m working on a blog post about self-care in Autumn and some eyelergy and Prevasore arrived to feature in it.


I finally got round to claiming some freebies from the Shopmium app at the weekend. If you don’t have an account yet you can get a free bar of chocolate if you sign up using my code KMFEUAMT.


I’ve wanted a coffee maker for years but have never got round to buying one. With Christmas already sorted I decided to use my earnings this week and treat myself. This DeLonghi Dolce Gusto was an absolute bargain from Argos at £54.99. It came with 3 boxes of pods and a pod holder as well as the machine. It’s so simple to use and the coffee is delicious.
