    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    I noticed yesterday in our large A that 3 for £10 chocolates have started appearing. Limited range at the moment (15 items) but worth monitoring as more get added.

    No pennies spent on grocery today.

    Need to do a bit of a stock take though... so I can meal plan effectively for the week ahead.
