    With my 1,000 and 500 points ones, I have been going straight back and buying one banana per coupon.

    Over 1000 point coupons have to go through manned till or CS desk.

    I'm back.

    The journey went, Waitrose, Lidl, Aldi home, tesco, WHS (free leg), Thorntons (Free lolly) M&S (2 cards obtained with a lot of persuasion) Debenhams (gave a £5 off £30 spend and carrier bag to a woman), Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury (returned clothes and bought more), home. Whilst in T the second time there was a slightly rough looking man with a little girl, he was trying to figure the child fruit pureed food (little girl wanted one... so SSM sprang into action 18 coupons given, I chose the comparing products, and sent him to buy 10 Tesco's own brand products that add up to £6)

    I have achy feet. OH is happy as he got to stay at home, but he can now pack the shopping away and make my tea... (well only if I ask him nicely!)
    Accumulative cost of having adult child in 2017.
    January - One day off work for OH to take him to an exam as car broken - 40 mile round journey. Different car £450.

    I got all excited then, I've been looking at trains, we've been invited to a wedding at Gretna Green. That's a good 4 hour drive for us so we were woundering what the prices were for us to travel by train.
    Wolverhampton to Carlise for two return is £149, then to travel to Gretna. So looks like I got a nice long drive.

    And with the 2 together railcard as the OP said.
