    Wombling our way to wealth in 2018

    Wombling our way to wealth in 2018 6th Jan 18 at 8:37 PM
    We had a lot of fun on the Wombling in 2017 thread that was started by Bobarella, and I would like to keep track of my wombles again this year.

    The rules are pretty flexible; for me, wombles are any products or services I get free, for others it also includes the discounts received. Found money is always a womble

    1 Ugly fruit from Reception E0,20

    A bag of winter gear and large towels from a colleague. Her 2 sons have outgrown the winter gear (sometimes it's not even been worn) and the gear is unisex. I like having winter gear in stock, because you always need it in a rush, and usually wear it only once or twice. We don't do wintersports, so it's only for home use. E15.

    1 year no MOT E39,70 (my car had its MOT this morning, and while I was waiting in line I read the notice properly. It said that if your car was maximum 6 years old and had run less than 100,000km, they could give you a 2-year certificate. I asked the mechanic when it was my turn, and now I have it!)

    It would be easier to say my wombles have totalled over 850 this year so far, including today's womble of nearly 60 off an Amazon order using vouchers (it cost me just 1.34)

    I have a future womble this Saturday, a 'Hollywood' wax at a salon that needs models.
