    played the petrol game ....1000 and 500.

    might have another go tomorrow as there is a little more room in the tank than I thought.

    my creative shopping trip cost me £5.95...not as bad as I expected it ...but I did load in some chocolate.

    I need to be really careful about how I spend for the rest of the month...although some of the things I bought today will last months anyway...gravy granules ...they will last months but I used the last of the old tub last night

    just returned from Tesco, my little dish shop did not compare with morries, I think we need to avoid the risotto and the chicken pie, although they worked yesterday! on a positive note, used 3 coupons and 3 mag coupons!

    We are many we are one xxx

    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.
