Roadkill Rebels July 2014

Hello RoadKill Rebels,

Welcome to the Challenge for July. The drill is still the same: find as much roadkill as you can between May 1st and 31st.

As HOK3Y said when she launched the first challenge in October 2013, "the only stipulation is that it must be 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!

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!

  • From what I gather from her thread, I think she is busy preparing her move to the US. That probably leaves little time for roadkill!

    Hubby found 5p yesterday.
    Yesterday, Whilst I was driving home, coming out of the car park, I spotted a penny on the ground. I stopped the car and got out and picked it up. I did get a few odd looks from some passer-bys!!!
    Today, hubby found 2p and I found a penny.
    29p so far this month. : 0 )

    I have been sat in traffic before and had a look out to see if I could see any roadkill, I'm still undecided if I would actually get out to pick it up though. Fair play to you for doing it though.

    I found 1p yesterday outside a curry house, I had to go back for it as they were in the door way looking out and it would have looked strange if I had picked it up right in front of them I think.

    I didn't know this thread existed.
    I once had a discussion about this kind of thing with my daughter who scoffed at it and called people silly for doing it. That was until I showed her my pot of 'pennies' that has over £5 in it for a years 'work'.

    A penny in your pocket doesn't make any difference but £5 will feed my family for 2 evening meals.

    Good luck everyone
