    I finally have everyone (I think!) signed up in post #2 including you LeopardPrintsandTea! If I have missed anyone, just shout up!


    My roadkill day has been pretty darn good - found some extra coins on the way home which takes my total for the day to £1.13. I have almost doubled what I found up to the 17th in 3 short days! :T There is hope for January yet! :D

    It is nice to see lots of new faces around here:)
    A very slow month for me.To be fair,though,I have been having lots of NSD's,so trying not to mill around shops to much:have a family of 6,and only done two big grocery shops since just after Christmas :j:eek:'
    That jammy dodger son of mine is up to his ol' tricks again,though-found a £1 coin in the playground today-there had been a cake sale on Friday :D.

    Thank you so much!
    I keep looking out but there seems to be no money.
    I feel silly claiming 1p

    Hi SU! :wave: I think you've hit the nail on the head for a lot of us - we're not out and about as much as we were.....and neither are those who drop pennies. My month was going reeeaaaallllly slowly but since I've made the effort to go out, I am doing much better.

    LeopardPrints don't feel weird about the penny because I assure you that everyone here is smiling at you. :) Pennies most certainly add up and there are lots of rebels who will tell you that it's tough when you start out but definitely gets better as you go. Keep looking!

    I'm already up for the day having found 6p on the way to the train station. Walking is key to this endeavour!! :D
