After having a good moan about my financial / housing situation post-split from Karl, which ended on a jokey note about a project £15k, I thought well… actually, why don’t I start a new project? And why aim for £15,000 — that would mean I’d still need £5k from the bank — why not aim for the full £20k? And so Project £20k was born.

I need to raise £20,000 in a short a time span as possible so that I can buy Karl out of the mortgage without having to take on any extra debt.

Looking back at my original Mortgage Free in 5 Years? post I had the following money-making ideas:

  • Selling stuff on ebay/preloved/whatever
  • Increasing sign-ups on the WAHM web hosting network
  • Get back into affiliate marketing

On top of that I know I need to:

  • Finish my WAHM website ebook and release it (£)
  • Make better use of advertising on my non-personal websites so that they actually make me money (if nothing else but to cover hosting!)
  • Step up my game with my freelance shit and get a dual income thing going on
  • Finish & release my “Jem’s mail form” form generator (£)

Beyond that, going back to basics with the budgeting, meal planning, and not wasting money on crap would be a good start. And if anyone has £20,000 lying around they don’t need…

    Must drop you that email.

    At the beginning of last year, I had a short lived plan to raise £100k. I raised nothing. Must try again – we need an extension. Although if I keep on the way I’m going, Big will move out before I get round to it :/

    This seems like such a tall order. You have some ideas for how to make it happen though, and therefore it is possible. Best of luck to you on this!
