    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

    DD will probably be drinking next lot OOD too as I forgot to take more up to her for her last couple of weeks and then being in Canada 2 months I bet some will be past date by time she gets back.

    I don't drink coffee...

    I dont really drink coffee either...sometimes I have a latte but thats about it....DS and OH are the coffee drinkers....but I think even DS is becoming a teapot as he didn't take the tassimo machine to uni with him and seems to forget it's here when he's home...

    There are a couple of hot chocolate packs that expire middle May so I will sit in the garden with them in the evenings just to use them up.

    I think DD still has a Suchards left as she prefers the Cadburys ones, I reckon that will be a year OOD, I best try use them up while she is away and the machine is here.

    I can just about suffer an iced coffee, remember those we got free with vouchers couple years back, I could drink them but warm it up and . But you could give me a slice of coffee cake and I love it.

    Expected to see some Easter egg bargains over there but none. I think lots of stores got stock control about right this year. Not good for us though...

    I don't go to As much but my little local had loads of the single creme eggs left on Monday, 25p each not good enough for me so if anyone notices when they go down again please shout.

    Morning all, so cold outside but I am going to make porridge and venture out in a woolly hat

    Marks sparks - if anyone has had the £5 off dresses offer then today is the last day - 4.5% on topcash if anyone still uses it (I did my order via Quidco, tracked straight away and then put in a claim to match the higher amount).
    Just spotted a Shard Print Frill Vest Dress for £15 in blue which looks like it might be useful over its matching swimsuit and a Parrot Print Woven Vest Dress for £15 which also has matching swimwear - I wish I had seen this before I ordered the one I did
    I now have just offer the required number of points needed to be on the invite list for the next exciting Marks event - cant wait

    Sainsburys mycoupons - my offers all have 20/04 expiry date so Friday seems to be the date for new offers

    Nectar - I have quite a few expiring offers so hopefully tomorrow there will be a nice new selection of offers.
    The scan x number of times and get x number of bonus points offers - seems to be no longer giving me the dial with how far along I am

    Greenjim - seems to be a repeat of last weeks offers which is not a bad thing. I've got Lurpak butter which is on offer for £1.50 so after the cashback its the same price as standard butter - better than nothing.

    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?

    In waities they had compressed toilet rolls, £3.45 for 16. a bit infuriating as they dont unroll on the holder just quite as smoothly as normal ones after you have straitened them, but a good price.

    Back from A with beer....... paid with the £25.00 APG. Only a small stewards enquiry, and shopping was free.If the glitch doesn't work, i have at least used it up!

    Lots of Easter craft supplies reduced to 10p. Got some craft straw for my DT class to make scarecrows next half term and a pink bucket for 20p Who can resist a pink bucket?!

    I have achieved the 40 items decluttered for Lent, and have split them between DF and School. I have a bag and a box of dubious quality charity stuff in the car to be delivered to the CS when I go to collect DS2 from revision class. Want to eBay, but I will be strong and type assignment for an hour.

    Just home from a quick Sada shop....As expected the San Miguel has worked at the checkout..Still showing 3 for £10.......£30 minus £10......Will have the results later today....I am about to leave for Wales..The land of song and lots and lots of sheep....I love em...And when the Welsh have finished with them they send them to the English to eat....

    On the subject of meat my Sada were reducing all of the gammon joints. smoked/unsmoked...marked up at £4 kilo...Reducing them to under £2 kilo........£12 plus joints reduced to £6..... I don't think it is a national thing as I asked why....The guy said that it was because they had too many....I can now say....They have quite a few less.........
    Freezer is heaving with them.....Ive got weights holding down the lid....

    Taking a couple to my daughter who I am sure will put them to good use....On that note...Ta taa for now......Catcha all laters....

    You have never seen me dash out so quick when I saw this reported on hukd as knew my local had loads last week. My cup of tea is still on the side.

    Can confirm the gardenia and peach ate 15p, only the freesia was really cheap last week at 37p none here to see if RTC further.
