    I am delighted with my shopping savings and will update as my budget has always run from a Friday as DH got his wages then That was more than 40 years ago

    Our Asda let you lift your preferences when final reductions are being done I put mine on the trolley then shared with someone new to me Old very greedy hands who clear the sleeves lifted one of my 10p tubs of sunblush tomatoes I ignored her I am an but she will not do that again There will be many more reductions next week

    Morning peeps.

    Itching to go to S but last time my store didn't have paper in any of the coupon machines on the first day, denying that they were participating!
    At least when I was complaining at CS another lady was behind me with the same complaint so I had back up.....

    Hope you're feeling better today LEJC. My headache cleared by lunchtime yesterday but was the second one I've had this week. No idea what that was all about.

    Good morning.

    If you didn’t have the £1 FVF offer yesterday, try this one - this seems to be a different offer with a start date on 6/10 not 7/10 - it arrived on a different eBay account overnight:

    Good morning all....

    I think my headache finally cleared yesterday afternoon...so almost a 2 dayer,and only after I has taken some sinus medication....this morning I am feeling much more human....glad you are feeling better too HG x


    I have a carefully crafted day of shopping ahead...a couple of visits for petrol to S and also a pop into T to pick up some mags and get some wombled points put on my card....then off to A to do a little apg shop....hopefully it wont result in too much of a dent to the frugal O budget but it's a combination of bits and bobs that we are running out of or will need over the weekend.(i'm hoping to use wombled APG's so the need to generate anything back is not necessarily a priority)

    Tonight I think will be another clear the fridge tea....possibly omelettes with whatever we have leftover to go in.

    Have a lovely day all...and looking forward to reports of the S till spits!

    Good morning everyone, a good start on S with a 500, 5000 and 200!

    However, hope you can all help with a mystery. Did 1st shop in-store, spent £10.15 after a Nature Valley coupon but no till spit. Took to CS who said 'it's the nicotine lozenges, they count as cigarettes'. Now i know this isn't true as they're a staple of my bonus points purchases and always work. So i went back and bought just nicotine lozenges and got a till spit... which stumped them! So what prevented me winning? I bought one pack of lager, one RTC (Garnier Micellar wash) and used one coupon along with spring onions

    Any advice/ opinions gratefully received

    Fraggle...I'm stabbing in the dark a bit but could it have been the alcohol..I know S dont include spirits but maybe they have extended it

    It's not a price increase on either Apple Sauce or Mint Sauce in M (each now 27p), it's a price reduction on Mint Sauce (unless I have worked it out incorrectly before). I am putting the price of SP Mint Sauce vs M down slightly. I don't know when the APG will update or whether it has already done so. Apple Sauce (as far as 'value range' is concerned) is available only in M of the two retailers, I hope it's price has either stayed the same or gone down (and that 27p isn't an increase).

    My steam generator has arrived...I'm very pleased with it.....not only is it the upgraded version of the last one Morphy Richards sent me to test last year,so no change in how it works etc.....its one that never needs de-scaling...so its an automatic winner in my eyes.
    Lovely red and black colour too......

    But a price tag of £219.99 is rather eye watering.......for an iron!
