    Good morning all, cloudy here but doubt if it will rain!

    It's a wardrobe for coats in the hall. We need less than 78cm so I'm limited on options and I wouldn't want it to sell out by leaving it too long.

    This might sound daft, but I'm assuming I can't take out over 50s insurance if I'm not actually over 50?

    BUT if you can play the long game, M&S do have sales with 20% off furniture fairly frequently so it could well be worth waiting, but then that might risk it selling out (though I find that doubtful unless it is an end of range one). Those sales generally cover all their furniture.

    I personally am still waiting for Next to reduce a bed we want, annoyingly it has gone up by about £50 since we've seen it, was convinced it would be in the next sale and that was 15 months ago

    DS and his fianc!e took the grandkids out there a few weeks ago, they had a fabulous time but it was expensive

    Quite funny, they realised why we didn't tell the kids when we were going to Disney or Lapland, the grandkids were so excited they practically had to scrape them off the ceiling

    6 packs £48 -20% =9.60 =£38.40-£16 as 3 for 2 = £22.40 - £5 off £50 = £17.40 but you will need to get a free drink and paper to take it over the £50 , think workings out are right someone may want to check

    Great thank you. For Beanz 37p each pack is equivalent of 37p fir approx 2 normal tins of beans/4 small tins - cheaper than own brand

    We are still getting through Beanz and sausages from the hitch a while ago but they are not as popular as pure beanz.

    Izzey those beans / hoops look good. Hopefully will be able to get to A's this evening when DH gets back with my car. Hopefully they will have a long date so we can stock up.


    Bubbs, I have a few £4 off when you spend £20 at W
    Am I right in thinking 6 fairy will be £1.66 each. is there a better way to do it?

    The nectar app has updated (or I just didn't notice this before).

    On the offers tab, click in the search box and then click "more offers" and "done" it brings up every offer from every retailer and not just the featured ones

    eg
    betfair bingo are offering 2500 points when you deposit and wager £10
    There are 250pts with a 30 day experian trial
    Loads of points deals when you sign up to LV, Virgin, Sky, Plusnet, BT, etc

    To be honest there are probably much better cashback deals out there than any of these but it's worth keeping an eye out
