    Roadkill Rebels 2016 Challenge 25th Dec 15 at 9:25 AM
    Hello Roadkill Rebels,

    Welcome to the 2016 Roadkill Challenge. The purpose of this challenge is to find as much roadkill as you can every month.

    What is roadkill? Money found outside of your home and/or car - it has to be money that genuinely wasn't yours or your family's before you found it! So if you find it down the side of the sofa, it doesn't count!

    Exotic roadkill (foreign coins/notes) also count!

    We also collect wombled receipts and discarded lottery scratch-cards to see if we can make some pennies that way too, and we keep track of these earnings separately."

    Please feel free to sign up and don't forget to subscribe! Hope you find loads of roadkill this year!

    Note - we used to create a new thread every month but for 2016 we have decided to keep same thread throughout the year.

    Many thanks to Joylimited for running the 2015 challenge

    If you haven’t already, join the forum to reply!

    You're welcome. I also find that train stations are good places. When I am at London Victoria waiting for a train I go for a wander looking under benches.

    However, I did find a penny yesterday

    Also, I live in a holiday town that has arcades and slot machines. I could have a wander around there.

    Whenever we go to a holiday town I like playing on the 2p slot machines. Usually only spend my loose change. Meanwhile hubby goes round And looks for road kill. The floors can be quite a lucrative place for 2p coins

    11p found today.
