    I thought I'd better come on and show my face, as not actually logged onto MSE since before my holiday. It feels like my whole world has changed since then!

    In a nutshell the holiday was incredible, and I have come back no longer a single lady. It was completely and utterly unexpected, but am very happy, and the reason for my absence on here is I'm spending all my days off at his place. We're keeping it kind of under wraps for now, well certainly on facebook. Everyone that's important to us knows. Without being too cryptic, I'm sure a few of you on here may be able to work out who it is given what happened this year, and the reason why we are keeping it quiet for a while.

    Anyway, I have not read back, so I have absolutely no idea at all what is going on. Bubbs was kind enough to text me about the muller glitch, although I actually couldn't get to Asda that day missed out. I'm sure I've missed tonnes on here.

    I hope all is well with everyone?

    DM the rum runners and shampoo smuggling bottles worked a treat. I had so much alcohol I even ended up bringing some home! Would definitely use them again.

    Frugal October - £2.95 T's - soya milk, my only purchase today.

    Tonight is bacon, eggs from butcher, black pudding from freezer, hash browns and tomatoes or beans.

    I have just read that some people have received a email stating that they are a power buyer and can add any amount per day.They have been getting a voucher every 3 days.I believe that it is relating to aldi and lidl receipts.some people have tried it without receiving the email and the receipts have been accepted.

    I have not tried it.

    Soreen Original Malt Loaf (260g) is now back at 77p in M but not getting onto the list this time ( - it should never have got onto the list several months ago or ever) as T has been somewhat cheaper than this before. I know msm's price graph suggests T has been £1. These price graphs are wrong.

    I can say for a fact it was 260g that was on offer (now expired) at T (T now £1.20) as it was the one that I bought and I have checked and it is this one.
    M list - posts 3-13

    M lost items - post 37.
    M lost list part 2 - page 4, post 145.

    Likely to go over budget, though. But in fairness £7 of total was spent on family, should have allowed a bit extra for that, or considered it as a different category.

    I didn't get S&S in recent mailing though. When I have been lucky enough to get S&S in store before, I have managed to get 3 on the one card.

    I don't need Viakal right now, still have about a dozen from when they were going through the till in tossers at 25p a long while back.

    Noticed they were filling up the Christmas chocks this morning so hopefully might be a bargain there.

    Just out of superdrug , offers are changing tonight, no gift boxes left. Staff could not tell me what the new one were. Price labels off of tresemme so that seems to be a definite change. Sorry if this has already been posted.

    Afternoon

    Yes .Muller should be ok 11+1.

    It was mentioned yesterday that options 4 for £1 in asda and tesco.
    https://groceries.asda.com/promotion/4-for-pound100/ls87280

    The salted caramel one is not included in the offer on a.com but if it is in the 4 for £1 in store it should glitch.

    You could try 3 of the others and one salted caramel or 4 salted caramel.
    If the salted caramel is a trigger then it would return 70p on a £1 spend .Making 4 for 30p.

    5receipts per day. Doesn't matter about the monetary value, you get 100 coins for each receipt. All shops count and I've done multiple from the same shop in a day. As in I've wombles 5 Lidl receipts and put them all in and had no issues.
    If you click on the level bar it'll tell you how far away from the next level you are and what you with for each receipt. You get a daily bonus of coins for.opening the app each day and a bonus when you reach the next level.
    I don't enter the sweepstakes, I prefer to save my coins for the Amazon vouchers. 7500 coins = £5. If you click on the bit at the top you'll see a cash out option and that's where you get the amazon vouchers, you just enter your email address and it's sent to.you pretty much instantly. Always goes to junk for me though, so beware of that.

    Think that about covers it lol, but if there's anything else just shout and I'll try and help Im up to £30 in Amazon now.

    My post from before explaining a bit more
