    Trip to Sainsbobs waste of time.

    No further reductions on Easter stuff, 5x box cream eggs still 90p, individual cream eggs 40p (robbers), Lindor, Galaxy and Cadbury's Caramel small eggs still 25p. It's not a big store but is still classed as a supermarket, not a local, so don't know where SA got information.
    I did get some things scanned at till, just to check sels were correct

    I had forgotten how bad the rush hour traffic is ... just glad I don't have to travel in it any more

    I don't think anyone brewed up this morning .... I couldn't as I was in rush after grabbing a couple more hours sleep, but I don't think anyone would want my brews anyway ... Mr B says they are awful lol

    Thanks issey. The 10 packs of Stella are 3 for £21 in Morrisons on msm and morries.com, so maybe a £27 v £21 comparison for a £8.10 apg. £11.90 for 30 cans sounds pretty good to me!

    Just had a search for my wardrobe & found a new floral top I bought for old Boss's son's wedding that I never went too

    Tried it on & it's perfect, white with a lovely pastel pansies print in a long line length, wear with cropped leggings & sandals

    Fingers crossed the weather will be like today, I can walk the grounds & take in the view over the Estuary

    Something for us all to look forward too ♥

    Good morning all...

    Quick question for the other Tassimo owners....how long do the pods stay ok after useby dates?

    I've found a box of multiple packs that I must have ordered last year...they now have impending usebys....the milk based ones we will try and use quickly,but the others that are just different versions of the coffees...how long past the useby are they still reasonably tasty?

    have you seen the currency rates this morning
    Originally posted by wendyak
    I took the plunge and ordered DDs Canadian dollars last night.

    Thankfully ordered quite late so would only have got about 5 CAD more if ordered this morning. I dare not leave it any later as want to give time if there is a problem with delivery. I had read in the news yesterday the pound had fallen after the election announcement but was watching the rate go up all day thought it might drop significantly over night.

    I guess the rates have risen across the board?

    Bit of a leap of faith for me ordering currency online but thanks to everyone who helped me, I did nervously hit the pay button. I went with currency club in the end as was the best rate for the amount I wanted even with the debit card fee. Was worth paying it to not need a trip into town, parking etc.

    Morning.

    Ending today, 3 for £20 beers

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda/bundle/820753_2057714.html

    Best comparison I can see for buying 3 is the San Miguel v Sainsbobs. £30 v £27. £4.77 each.

    Other comparisons would have to be bought in 6s.
    Boddies v Tesco 2 for £16
    Strongbow v Morries 2 for £16
    Bud v Morries 2 for £16
