Just Paid £1 Off My Mortgage With 2p I've Found On The Floor

Recommended Posts

This is approximately where I am now. Got loads of the commie era Hungarian currency. Why didn't I change it?

Can't I send it off to charity or something?

Oxfam take any foreign currency and can turn it into cash.

Young daughter toddled off into the gaming area at the motorway services this Bank Holiday. Went in to bring her back. No-one else around - the last person did leave me eight pound coins in one of the fruit machine pay outs though. Over 11 quid for the month now and rapidly approaching 40 quid for the year.

All the luck's coming your way. After a poor winter and spring, I saw a pound coin on the floor by the trolleys in Tesco today. I was momentarily disoriented by this sensational change of luck, giving an athletic Tesco drone in a high-viz jacket his chance. He was on that coin in a flash.

My personal drought continues....

I pocketed 8p change from the £50 my dad gave me to get meat from the butchers SCORE!! Although it could have horribly gone the other way since that was the limit and I wasn't counting what I was buying :S

Slow few weeks - was out of the country for a wee while, which doesn't lend itself well to finding Sterling on the streets. Found 20p at Heathrow though.

16p so far this month.

Been very poor so far this year, although at the weekend I did find a £1 coin.

It's like people have suddenly discovered money has value!

I found a pound at sainsburys this weekend. Problem is I also lost £20 note somewhere...

Worst weekend of my life...

Perhaps I should just take each coin in as I find it to pay down the debts then? That could be an interesting tactic I wonder at what point the bank would send me a letter if I kept paying it off that way.

They can't refuse legal tender can they?

Perhaps everyone on HPC should join in and see what happens with thousands of people paying a penny off the mortgage each time.

Just found 3p more in the park. :P

Just rob tramps.

Works for the government.

Up 3p today.

However my mate sent me the following link...

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned - especially when she is armed with loose change and a few plastic containers.

When faced with a court order to pay her ex-husband $50.12 as part of a divorce settlement, the aggrieved spouse ponied up the money in pennies delivered in Tupperware filled with rice and beans.
