    Just tried Asda Butchers Thick Back Bacon - it's thicker/tastier than S and you get 8 slices (S only have 6) so for the same price there are benefits.

    Went to library and checked out Co-op next door - 58p spent on 2 sturdy ice scrapers rtc, at 29p each these are a steal.

    58p was not grocery, so not added to total.
    Having an NSD grocery-wise.

    Must do some dust-busting this afternoon...

    News story ---> Ll0yds are slashing the rate on their Club account from 4% to 2% .

    I know the base rate has come down SLIGHTLY after 8 (?) years, but banks are really trying it on with the level of cuts they are making to savings rates, completely unjustified in my opinion!

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

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.
