    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

    2 oranges and a banana from work 0,60

    Work have decided to offer free organic fruit Monday-Thursday. (It's a nice gesture, but does not negate the work pressure at the mo, though.)

    1 more orange on Tuesday, 1 banana and 1 orange on Thursday


    I will stop counting the fruit from work after 31 October, because then I think it has become 'normal'.

    9 oranges, 3 pears, and 1 nectarine
    Smoked ham and cheddar wrap, prepackaged, still closed, in the fridge

    All ready to be thrown out. The wrap because sell-by date was tomorrow, the fruit because they didn't want to keep it over the weekend and new fruit will be delivered on Monday.

    Not part of this challenge but I have just wombled 750 nectar points from receipts left in the bottom of the trolley, and then the machine chucked out some more vouchers for me.

    Will all add up when they next do their double up scheme.

    Facial treatment free with discounted entry to local spa, and small body milk and hydrating cream. I was planning on a facial treatment anyway, so I will count the difference as a womble: €7, + €2 for the small bottles.

    Have been reading through this. What are the rebates on products? Not something I am aware of. I presume the amounts for fruit is you putting aside an amount that believe an individual item of that fruit would cost.
