    Happy new year everyone, count me on again please Hokey, hoping this year brings an abundance of free cash.

    The kids are addicted to rebelling now and I even have my nan in on the act too, she always has WRs for me to check every time I visit. :D

    The wife's thinks were all nuts, looking for receipts.

    Sign me up, please. Lunchtime is usually good because all the high-school kids like to show off by throwing money away. It's usually just pennies and tuppences...but sometimes you get someone flashy who (pretends s/he) doesn't care about the 5p coins. :D

    I'm back for more! Can you add me again please Hokey? I'll add up my December totals later today, but in the meantime my jar will be emptied, ready for a new month!

    Best advice I picked up last month was 'Think like a coin' :rotfl:

    Good morning and happy new year!!!! 2014 is going to be the year that my life turns around and I am much excited about it!! Start the year on the right foot with as much positivity as you can muster and as many handfuls of lost coins as you can find! :D

    Kicked off yesterday with 6 x 5p plus £1.37 from w/r. Today I have already found 5p in the train station and am looking forward to seeing what the rest of the day brings to the HOK3Y's cash pot. :)

    Welcome to all the new rebels :wave:! You have all been signed up in post. #2 with a number. Siouxsie32 just summed up how best to approach this challenge! Made me smile! :)

    Best of luck today......wonder who will find the first £1 coin......

    Didn't find anything yesterday, I think living in a small rural town will make for slim pickings, but I'll keep looking!

    I have a question about wombling receipts...

    When you enter the details onto the website and it tells you how much you could have saved.. how do you then get the coupon for it?

    Maybe I am being a bit blind, but I cant see how you get it?

    Leanne, which store are you looking at? A$da is the one that gives you coupons for the difference. Other stores will allow you to add points from wr to loyalty cards as long as you don't do it too often.
