But now, with your encouragement, I went to their Facebook page and found the 'get a free pot or pie from Tesco' page. Am just about to claim some vouchers. Shame they are fresh and can't go in the food bank but they won't be wasted.

    Thanks for this. Someone told me on Streetlife that Clarks take shoes, whatever the condition as they break them up for the materials, so put your old shoes there, everyone.

    And I presume everyone knows that Specsavers takes old glasses and does something altruistic with them?

    ok - you are going to have to choose your till boy carefully to accept such a wad of MOCs and triple count that you have at least 10 acceptable items - but are you going to try it

    i cant see anything wrong with 10 soups - Ive never done more than 6 hipps at a time
    have you got sufficient MOCs or print offs?

    This sounds like fun




    You did the journey quickly, pleased it went well x






    I love spicy parsnip soup.

    So if I get 18 Hipp, and 10 parsnip soups.

    Hipp £18
    Soup £6
    = £24
    T - Coffee/mayo/butter/bread to spend £6.
    = £30.

    minus £3 when spend £30 =£27
    minus soup vouchers £2.50 = £24.50
    minus £18 vouchers = £6.50
    Minus BG £5.98 = roughly 50p to pay.

    I'm just back from my local ASDA and got some more Mullers -- too early for APG but will post if it is a disaster. I also wandered unhopefully towards the cling film and to my astonishment found loads of the dispensers, though the SEL was £2.50. I got it price-checked and promptly bought a few of them, leaving a whole box untouched. I regret this now as on the way home I realised that the best thing to do with some of them, after donating to family and friends, is to put them in Tesco's food bank. I think they top up by about 40% and if they top up on non-food items, this will work well as they sell the dispenser for £4!!!

    Everyone in the house has been eating Tesco's own products for the month, My cupboards were empty at the beginning of the month, and I actually have loads of food in now, stocked up with oils and loads of other cupboard staples... even started Xmas food shopping with the Hipp - it is no wonder I have blown the budget (well that was waites, sainsbury, asda and some of Mr T).

    Had misplaced old one (along with driving licence) but had one I picked up a while ago. Did the chat thing and all points on one card which has now been registered.
    Fun and games tomorrow then.
