    Evening fellow killers :)

    I got a £10 Morrisons voucher today which is my reward for signing up to a trial Sun+ deal :)

    I would put it in the pot but I'm not sure if there is an expiry date on it so I'm going to use it to buy a couple of bottles of wine to leave at mum's which I can then give away as Christmas pressies LOL

    I found a 5p on the floor by the bus stop going to college.
    Good start to the day! And it's more then 1p lol.

    I'm off to the dentist this afternoon so I'll be keeping a watchful eye out for some roadkill pennies lol.

    Hope everyone has a good day.

    After walking to the nearest decent (?) shopping centre this morning, my roadkill finds for the day are:

    1p coin: Sutton Park
    1p coin: outside the entrance to Sutton Park
    5p coin: on the floor inside the Gracechurch Centre
    2x 2p and 1 x 1p coins: in a pile together near the bus stops in Sutton

    I suspect that the pile of coins had been abandoned by the same person :( I was more than happy to give the coins a new home in my roadkill pot :)

    I'm off to uni now so hopefully I'll manage to rescue some more roadkill :rotfl:

    I have found a coin two days running which is a first for me. Was walking back to my car to get something out with a colleague and I saw a 1p on the floor, I walked passed it and went back and got it once they had left!

    It has just taken me ages to find this thread!

    So last night at university was quite productive (studying and roadkill spotting):

    2p coin: in the middle of a car parking space
    1p coin: on the floor of the library canteen
    5p coin: underneath the hot drinks machine
    5p coin: unclaimed change in the hot drinks machine
    2 x 20p coins: dropped change near the vending machine
    2 x 20p coins: more unclaimed change in the hot drinks machine
    1p coin: spotted lying in the road walking home

    So £1.06 yesterday and 15 coins :j

    Wowzers found a 5p today:) Also was given a 'get £2.83 off your next shop' by self zap checkout assistant as T*sco today - I had to have a random service check which she totally b*llsed up. Ended up having to have whole lot checked after she scanned most things twice. As she said 'we are supposed to bin them ( left behind vouchers) but you were very patient'..........hmm she got me on a good day;)
