    Thanks Hillbern. It's a pleasure to be able to help in some small way. However, that was the last one on the shelf in my local. I have a day off tomorrow so I might try the larger store a bit further away.

    If you're doing an in-store shop remember each sharpie will give £4.10 APG. So you might not want to do more than 2/3 max in each shop to avoid having to use big APG next time.

    Morning all, hope everyone's ok. Been missing a while again, short of it is hubby is now unable to work through disability and eldest daughters autism is reaching new heights, along with being hormonal she hasn't been coping well. I'm trying to set up a Facebook business to try and help keep us afloat without having to cut back on too many luxuries so I really have to get back into all this while life seems on an even keel!!

    Would anyone mind telling me where th razors compare to please? X

    Good afternoon all....

    Anyone looking for the S cheap toiletries might want to focus in on the mandra spa stuff....lots seem to be reduced down to 50p....

    .....again plenty of labels in my local but the shelves were bare.

    and I need to concur with Tiny that it is indeed a Wednesday thing...

    I was in there at 8am this morning and also at almost 7pm last night when they closed so I do believe that it may be the night shift shelf stackers that are getting the loot in my local!

    I didnt stalk S in particular,honest...it was just the way this week has panned out.
    It's been a NSD spend wise today .....but I have been for a lovely walk out as the weather has been so nice.
    I'm really hoping with very crossed fingers that next week is perfect weather wise too....

    lovely to see westie has been catching up with her neighbours Whilst in NZ....
    and hoping its turning into an epic trip for her.

    I tried the bottles of coke as mentioned last night but the Multi is on my shop, dont know if that means anything.
    Im a board guide on Pie Making Moneysaving. I'm a volunteer to help the pie production & consumption run smoothly. I can help merge tastes and fillings. Any pies made are mine & are not those of other Moneysavingexperts. Im a board guide not a qualified baker and as such do not make every type of pie. If you spot a quiche or flan please report it.
