    Right I am off to bed. Thanks for all the lovely comments, I really appreciate them. Never in a million years did I expect this to happen, been single so long I thought I was destined to be a lonely old woman with 50 cats for company!

    I will try and get back on soon, but life has all just gone a bit crazy right now, in the best possible way.

    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.
    Originally posted by savvy sal
    Don't try this people. The salted caramel does get picked up in the APG but the T offer does not. I stupidly did not check the T site and because the Praline is not sold at T, according to APG, it shows the higher price for the options. Also stupidly believed My S that the parmesan wouldn't compare. I think I am losing my touch! Still got an APG, though only for £2.41. Was glad to test, though, Savvy Sal. It's not often I help out like this so glad to take my turn.

    Mind you, if you want the options sachets, and if you pick ones which T sells , they are good fillers.

    17 items (8 different) on your receipt qualify for comparison Asda tesco
    1x ASDA Extra Special Parmigiano Reggiano (170G) £2.50 £3.00
    1x Options Belgian Chocolate (11G) £0.25 £0.40
    1x ASDA Chosen By You Sardines in Brine (120G) £0.40 £0.40
    1x Options Belgian Chocolate Salted Caramel (11G) £0.25 £0.40
    1x Options Belgian Choc Praline (11G) £0.25 N/A
    1x ASDA Chosen By You Sardines in Tomato Sauce (120G) £0.40£0.40
    10x Muller Corner Red Cherry Yogurt (150G) £5.50 £3.00
    1x Options White Choc (11G) £0.25 £0.40
    1x Muller Corner Strawberry Yogurt (150G) £0.55 £0.55
    Comparison total (compared products only) £10.10 £8.55

    +£1.55 cheaper

    Morning.

    The multi buy looks to be ending today on the Sharwoods Sauces/Noodles 2 for £3.00

    https://groceries.asda.com/promotion/2-for-pound350/ls87589

    Best comparison on the Indian Sauces v Tesco - £3.68 v £1.74.
    (Korma/Tikka Masala/Jalfrezi/Rogan Josh/Bhuna/Balti/Butter Chicken/Madras).

    Good comparison on the Noodles v Waitrose - £3.42 v £2.00.

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda/bundle/661179_1828600.html


    Also ending the Coke Cans 2 for £5.00 cans - £6.94 v £5.00

    https://groceries.asda.com/promotion/ls86060

    Most compare to Tesco, Morries and Waitrose (not all against Waitrose)

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda/bundle/661185_1353850.html


    And various items multi offer but no great comparisons.

    https://groceries.asda.com/promotion/2-for-pound400/ls87533

    Heinz Beans x 4 - £4.50 v £4.00 v Tesco
    Napolina Chopped/Plum Tomatoes x 4 - £4.50 v £4.00 Tesco or Morries and
    Giant Green Sweetcorn x 4 - £4.88 v £4.00 v Sainsbobs or Morries

    Another nsd yesterday and another planned for me today. My total increased slightly on Monday because dh took Dd to ALDI and picked up some milk, eggs and leeks. Last night I made potato and leek soup and I decided not to blitz it because it looked so good......and it was delicious even if I do say so myself.
    So another day of painting today for me. It's definitely helping to keep me out of mischief
    I wouldn't mind a bit of a glitch the last couple of weeks have been quite interesting I like something to keep me going
