    Told you the store specific RTCs weren't of much interest. (I will go btw, I know I'm now keeping myself here but do need to go.) I have some M White Cake Cases at 29p in M Corby. And I think that's all I was bothered to take details of. The Ambrosia cartons that were 70p but are nowadays 2 for £1.50 and were at cheaper individual price (than 70p) on the RTC shelf in Coalville have now gone, I can say that much, so that detail will be deleted whenever I get to the list.

    In fact, I have all the details of all pricing across M and knowledge of the whole lot just right in my head, so I know it all completely off the top of my head - it's a matter of communicating that information and getting it down onto here. So, I'll go to M tomorrow and just remember the entire configuration of their offers that I need to look out for to see if anything's changed. I just remember it all! Very good talent really, a speciality! I can tell you the Bin liners - two types - Pedal Bin 40 and Swing Bin 20 (but that detail was from my page) have gone up slightly from 92p to 97p, but that's just those couple of random items.

    Leave you with that. I'm not much use at present I know, sorry. Thanks for bearing with me!

    I will go now - honest! See you soon.

    Nah. They are good in that you can submit your receipt up to 6 days after you shopped, even if the offer closed between purchase and upload

    DS3 just popped home with bags of shopping as he 'realised we were running low' He spent £8 on 2 loafs of bread (white bread yuck), milk, a large lurkpak and cans of Murphys for OH... eight flipping pounds! I am tempted to tell him it is his contribution to the household (yes he still is not paying board!)

    DGS got hold of the remote yesterday tea-time and wouldn't let it go.
    So DGD yelled for me. 'Grandma! He's got grown up programmes on! People are going to the beach and kissing.'
