I always like to see branding at work. £30 RRP for a cap, I get really nice caps for under £3 each. Have 4 for about £11 now. Shame an embroidering machine sets back pretty serious wedge but still you can do 100 an hour like that.

Black and white speckled space grey is on trend though. I want to get a hoodie like that. Got a polo in fat face the other day for just a little more than trade cost would be.

Luckily we get handbags to pile our crap into. strawberry float my back :dread:


There are a few for Android.

Stocard
Cards
Google Pay.

There are others as well but these are the ones that actually work well.

I presume you can get similar for iOS.

I know the feeling Bunni, my purse is full of loyalty cards that I hardly use... I've got about 20 in my purse that I carry all the time when I occasionally go out.

I don't think some of them are apps you can get at the minute, if they did I don't think my phone would have enough memory for them all!

If it helps, I have no loyalty cards and somehow manage to drag myself through each day and come out at the other end. :simper:

Raiders New Era cap from Amazon. Dunno why but it was only £9 brand new when they're usually about £30.

Slim wallet from eBay. £12 brand new when they're £25 everywhere else. Has a money clip on the back and a pocket on the side.

Did you deliberately match your hat to your wallet?

I cut the barcodes out of all my loyalty cards and superglued them to a business card, so I've managed to get six loyalty cards into one slot of my wallet.

I quite like the idea of a money clip for when I go out, although it probably works better in America where their coins are worth buttons and all their even slightly useful currency is in paper form. A better idea is probably a separate super slim wallet and just transferring my bank cards into it.

:lol: the lighting makes them both look the same colour but the hat is as it looks there and the wallet is more dark blue denim.

I made nearly £100 in nectar/clubcard points this year. I save my cafe Nero/Greggs stamp cards and give them to homeless people when they’re full. They’re worth keeping if you use them often enough. (Also have £120 in my top cashback account from booking my holiday/wedding last year but that’s a separate gloat)

Most of the apps only combine a few of the cards, so half of my purse space.

I must have the shitest cashback credit card in history, it's the nationwide one and only gives you cashback at the weirdest niche stores I'm never going to shop at.

That's a good idea on what to do with stamp cards though. My only issue with doing that is that there are no homeless people where I live. Or no obvious ones at least. I've only seen one guy in the last 5 years and I rang Crisis to let them know where he was, never saw him again though.

Surrey; specifically Reigate. I presume it's easier for the local authority to re-home people than put up with the rich people moaning about having to actually acknowledge the existence of people without homes.

There's a guy that I talk to that was homeless when I was younger but they managed to get him permanent accomodation 10 years ago or so.

I don't know how (or even why) anyone uses those magic trackpads, in a desktop environment surely a mouse is far, far more useful.
