    Good afternoon everyone on this lovely sunny day.

    Not sure if it's been mentioned, but it looks like Tosco are selling off suntan lotions. I picked up tesco own SPF15 for 88pm and Ambre Solaire SPF20 invisible spray for £3.50. There were Garnier and all other makes heavily reduced. Useful to put away for next summer, when the prices will be expensive again.

    I found them in the suntan lotion aisle and they were also in the clearance section too in our extra store.

    Hi all, a bit of a newbie using yopmail, I have printed dome of the little dish coupons this morning, then went back to print dome more, after checking in tosco that the vouchers worked along with the mag coupons. But now yopmail is asking me to enter a capicha code, which when I enter, nothing happens, I am sure I am doing something wrong, is anyone able to offer any advice please?
    Thanks

    Postman brought me two identical envelopes this morning each one gives two free tickets to the homebuilding and renovating show in Harrogate between the 4-6 November. I have printed 2 tickets, the others will be going in the recycling bin!
    Frugal November £100 for 4 adults (one of which has a huge appetite!) fingers crossed.

    are you sure

    i make it £1.86
    £8/3 = £2.66 - 80p = £1.86 or £1.87 if rounded up

    That makes more sense, thanks.

    As well as adding an extra 0 on the end he also got the comma in the wrong place

    I'm a disaster area. No more little dish mocs available from their website (I've been working away so am late to this party) and Mum is here with her Daily Mail but it sounds as if finding Farmfoods might be a waste of time. I wanted the small ones anyway as I hate Marmite but want to take them to an ex pat in my hand luggage...

    Ah well. Off to pick up my ASDA dress as found by a lovely OP though now I rudely forget who...

    So that every single post that I contribute to this thread is on topic I would just like to say I am an elite 11+ member and I hear the unjust silence of my opinions whilst I am shopping in supermarkets mainly. Just sayin.

    Does anyone know if the NCG soup is comparing to S yet?

    I am writing a shopping list for tomorrow.... I need to be organised as I don't have much left out of the frocking budget.

    We're back from delivering a van full of DDS stuff to Yorkshire. Not too bad a trip. Get on very well with his parents too.

    So I finally have chance tomorrow to get wine, but I should imagine it is no longer working? Could have done with some more white too.

    Morning all - Wouldn't dash and buy a copy of the Daily Mail for the Marmite - my local Iceland which is a large one only had 8 jars and they had gone within 10 mins.

    Hope you all get loads of Nectar Points today x

    OK I did some experimenting in Mr Tosssers emporium of dreams today with mixed results - mostly because mysupermarket lied to me and I should have double checked Tesco.com against asda.com

    I bought 5 of the soups on offer 5 for £3 - it matched 3 soups in asda = £3.27 so I lost 27p

    So to make this experiment work we need to build a list of the ones Tesco sells but Asda does not to make this list work - inevitably its the nice soups I like.
    Or just 5 of the two non matching ones

    It was like the olden days today, a carefully written list and a handful of MOCs - all scanning beautifully

    original total £14.24
    minus soup multibuy £1.95
    minus brand guarantee £1.30
    new total £10.99

    minus £6 Hipp MOCs
    minus £1.50 soup MOCs from the new magazine
    final total £3.39

    minus £1.80 for Q clciksnappy for yog drink
    minus £1.49 for Q clcicksnappy

    final true of shopping was 1p

    I put the yogurt drink and the Hipps straight into the food bank trolley - actually looking at the sums the soup could have gone as well but I had to come out with some shopping or OH would Have thought I had really lost the plot

    Thinking aloud now - can someone test this out please

    Buy 6 Hipp for £6 - avoiding the fruity porridge which does not match
    Plus 5 soups for £3 - non matching ones
    plus at least 3 other filler items - say another £1 but I know a lot of people can do it for much less than this but you need to have to pay something at the till - possibly some things for cashback?
    total say £10
    less £6 Hipp MOCs
    less £1.50 soup MOCs
    Less brand gaurantee £2 ???
    leaves 50p to pay

    Went to S and got 2 lots of £10 petrol and a £10 shop = 3500 points so am happy with that. When taking my shopping back to the car, saw a rat running round . Don't think I want to go there again

    Sainsburys - I got £10 of fuel and got 2000 points

    Then in store I got £10 of cat food - my gang are being cussed - they have 4 sorts of food to choose from - Whiskas jelly, Felix jelly, asda foil trays and meaty Sainsburys tins - between the three of them hardly anything is being eaten.

    So I've bought three sets of six gravy tins and some different Whiskas whcih I had a 200 pointer for.
    They seem to be eating the gravy stuff at the moment but everything else will go back for a refund

    The pet food shop gave me 500 points

    I've still got some of the extra pointers for bedding to play with tomorrow but the sainsbobs till spit machines seem to be quite generous this weekend
