    Mr TS has just had a nosey in the brown cardboard box marked xmas. I still haven't unpacked it since we finished the kitchen.

    He found the xmas cake (last years ) and five xmas puddings.

    He was after some chocolate I had told him to look in the box on top not the one underneath. He is now tucking into Liz Shaw Amaretto sticks.

    Oh and Mr TS came in hugging a red bottle of wine earlier, only one of those really expensive ones.

    He said but there are five of them, well would have been four if he drunk that one, but I said they are for special occasions now I know how much they are worth.

    So I swapped it for this one instead.

    Also found some mince pies in the box on top. I think they may end up in the compost bin surely they can't still be ok.

    I didn't get to sainsbury today to play the game so will go tomorrow. I have a little shopping trip tomorrow but not as long as SSM! Tesco for 6 hipp (feel brave doing this many at a time), sainsbury 4x£10 maybe 5 if focus will take it! Then to wrose for 60 ariel tabs for 7.20 and free coffee then to asda for whoopsies and outlet to see if there are any cheap trainer schetchers. Need to check amazon first before buying. I do not add up my spends on food but this week it has been really low. £10 is my maximum a week for 2 of us but of course is there is a really good 'special offer' I will stock up.

    Curious about the lift comment though. Why would a fire fighter love the lift one, surely they would not be using the lift?

    I must have originally priced it up far less than the average as I put it right at the top of the wine rack.

    I'm having some Ts cava from a mystery fizz box, not sure how long it's been around for. Not as nice as Prosecco but thought best use it up.

    It may not be a good idea to highlight that some shops are taking loads of these. I am sure the t&c is 1 per transaction, so they are right (except you can do more than 1 transaction a day). I would try a different SA/store. I have done 5 lots of 18 vouchers today, with no problems x



    I got a bit of a lecture... he asked;
    do you have an e-mail - yes
    do you know how to use the e-mail - yes I am not that old

    I told him I would set mum's card up with a second e-mail linked to mine.... he said that is not technically possible... I asked him how old he was!

    including me, we are lucky to be getting away so far by using more than one at a time.
    there will be more just fights to come.
    dont give them reason to look into the coupons they do give us.
    i know the wording is 1 per transaction (so poss many per day) but on the other hand we have been getting away with many per transaction. elite rule "dont draw unnecessary atention

    funny enough, the only one to refuse more than one coupon at a time , was my favourite sa. so i thought management has had words with the staff. but as a true elite i chanced it again with another sa and all went ok

    I need to do 3 more swipes by 19th for 100 bonus points apparently.

    Wonder if I'll manage to do that ...

    I got 190 pts if I buy some lamb, 300 if I spend £15, and 7p off a litre if I spend £15 on household (which is doubtful as S is a bit pricey on household)

    Today I got my first new £5.

    My only grocery spend today was 75p bread.
