    More success at S.

    Put £30 in petrol and got £15 back in nectar points

    First £10 fill I got a tenner in points, while I was paying 2 other people won £10 too. Thinking there was a batch of them, I went straight back out and put in another £10. The guy in front of me got a tenner and I got 500points. Did a third £10 straight away and got another 500points. So very happy with that.

    Going back tomorrow with the other car

    Think I'll treat us to one of the S curry meals in a box as well .....
    I was going to order a takeaway tomorrow night but think I'll take a gamble on a Sains meal deal instead

    Well I failed on the Marmite front this morning. I got held up at work and didn't get there until 9.30. The 6 they had in store had already gone.

    Pleased I paid for my 2 Daily Mails with wombles

    I'm now satisfying myself with the codes on the back and using the papers to light the log burner.

    What a really cheap campaign for Iceland.....minimum outlay, increased footfall and sales....I bought some Cadburys fingers, good publicity, increased brand awareness, feel good factor.......and higher Daily Mail sales too.......should be a win win situation but somehow feel a bit cheated

    I'll give it a miss next time

    Don't blame you - you'd think they'd have had a deal with Marmite too, to make sure they were well-stocked well in advance of all this.

    I saw a Mail the other day with no number on the back - just a blank space where it should have been.

    Have you seen the bulb offer? Postage is pricey though at nearly £6...

    Please what is the minimum spend for petrol at Sainsbury. Cant seem to see it in the t&c but someone says £10. My sainsburys is 5 miles away so am wondering if I am going to make any money by doing it!

    Mad busy day here.

    Went to work - later start on Fridays thank goodness - then to MnS for the last 3 parcels, then posted off a Bay sale which I am pleased about, then raced home to get the stuff for DD, and someone in the lobby saw me with the MnS parcels and said 'you're loaded up' so I just said 'PayDay' and smiled....

    then to S for fuel, 2 x £10 spent on petrol, 2 x 1,000 pts received and when they added them on the guy said just keep going for it (!)

    then delivered the Hipps and got given little carton of Lindt, no need but very nice, then helped DGD with maths homework, also retrieved my half a chicken from the other day from DD's freezer, so that's tomorrow's meals sorted, home now and had jacket potato and tuna for dinner, and finally am sitting still.

    So pleased I made sandwiches last night - can't believe I ate them whilst driving around

    As for frockery - I have not spent a penny on food!

    No time to collect JF orders, will have to wait till Monday... didn't bother with Marmite.

    Kids are off to Disney on Ice tomorrow, very nice.

    That's what the ladies in the petrol station said to me. Asked if I was going to do it again after a 2000 point came out with my first tenner. I said I was going to if it wasn't busy. They said go for it and to stay where I was on the forecourt.

    They were as excited as me as to what might pop out.


    2000, 500, 1000 and another 1000, I will leave aau to do the sums. Spent about £45 filling up so very happy with that.

    Then popped into store and pushed the trolley round for ages and ages with nothing in it. My frock was firmly on. Just could not think what to buy and then remembered we were nearly out of sunflower and olive oil and I always buy organic so just bought 4 bottles and some RTC choc muffins 49p an some speciality bread for 20p. That shop gave me another 1000.

    The petrol ladies were happy to add on each voucher with my next fill in fact they suggested it, last time I was told I would have to get them added next time I shopped instore. So I am just left with one to claim as got the last petrol one added instore. I must remember to do it.
    I'M A FROCKY
    Total spend for Frugal October £201.75/£100 for 3 of us. Wine glitch and M&S sale my downfall.

    4 lots of £10 spent at Sainsbury's. I won 2000 points 3 times and 500 points once. £32.50 in points that will double up to £65. A good day!
