Make Money From Your Receipts

Make Money From Your Store Receipts

There are three types of people in this world - those who promptly throw their receipts away, those who file their receipts in an organised system, and the rest of us who shove them in a purse/bag/pocket and swiftly forget about them... But, no matter which type you are, you could be earning £100+ a year from your store receipts just by scanning them into an app.

All you need to get started is a smartphone and a few seconds free time.


Snap pics of up to 10 receipts a week to earn 5 points a time. At the moment HuYu only accepts receipts from Aldi, Asda, Co-Op, Lidl, Morrisons, Sainsbury's, Tesco, and Waitrose / Ocado. There are also regular short surveys which generally grant about 15 points.

Rewards: each point is worth a penny, and you need 500 to cash out. Payment is in gift card form but there are plenty on offer, from Amazon to Uber.

For 50 points to get you started, sign up with code MMCF373Y or WA7X3FQ9. For more info check out the HuYu website.

Receipt Hog

Take photos of your receipts to earn coins to exchange for cash or giftcards. This app will take pretty much any receipt, granting coins for receipts from supermarkets, bargain stores, pet shops and beauty suppliers, and turns on the Hog Slots for receipts from books shops, clothing retailers, arts and crafts stores, etc. Restaurant, bar, cafe and petrol receipts will get you entries into the monthly prize draw for 5,000 coins.

The amount of coins you get from a receipt depends on how much you spent. Up to £10 gets you 5 coins, £10-£50 is 10 coins, £50-£100 is 15 coins, and over £100 will get you 20 coins. You can upload a maximum of 20 receipts every 7 days, and no more than 3 from the same store per day.

Bonus: make sure to add a receipt each week as this will help you level up, as well as bag you bonus turns on the Hog Slots. There are also occasional questionnaires which can earn you 30 coins a time.

Rewards: cash out in Paypal, prepaid Mastercard, or Amazon vouchers. 1,000 coins will get you a £3 Amazon voucher, 1,500 coins £5 in Paypal or Mastercard, and then 2,850 for £10; 5,300 for £20; and 12,000 coins for £50.

For more info, check out the Receipt Hog website.

Earn money from your receipts with smartphone apps


Take photos of your receipts (up to 30 a week) and fill out occasional short surveys to earn tokens. Receipts bag you 25 tokens, plus an extra 5 tokens if you upload on the day you shopped, while surveys bag you 10 tokens per advertised minute of survey length.

Bonus: scratchcards are given out with surveys and for levelling up (uploading receipts each week), which can boost your token count considerably. Each one you get is an entry into the weekly token prize draw too, drawn every Monday at 8am.

Rewards: you can cash out in Paypal or giftcards for Amazon, iTunes, and Love2Shop. You need 3,200 tokens for £5, 6,000 tokens for £10, and 11,500 tokens for £20.

If you sign up with my referral code 031JVTJD you can get 200 bonus tokens to get you started. Check out the Shoppix website.

Snap My Eats

Earn up to £5 in Amazon vouchers each month by uploading receipts from the likes of coffee shops, restaurants and fast food joints. 3 receipts a month will get you £1 - 15 will get you £5. Read more about it at the App Store.

Okay, so none of these are get rich quick schemes. But for stuff you've already bought and paid for, a nice little treat every month or so, the return on these apps isn't bad at all!

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale.

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
