    Wheres My Cashback
    Free Gu Mousse Fusion at Sains £1.80

    60% off if buying 3, best at T as £1.90 each ans compares to S £1.80,
    so £5.70 x 60% = £2.28 for 3, then Brand compares to S, so 30p off = £1.98 for 3 packs = 66p per pack or 33p per pot.....
    Now if this is glass like a lot of Gu stuff, you can keep for your own desserts, how is that for justification to OH's

    Not glass and only about 2 spoonfuls. They're quite small and I wouldn't pay 33p per pot for them.

    Someone in my club was collecting ring pulls from empty cans. I had to ask why peeps still collected them as I thought the whole can was aluminium
    I was surprised with the answer
    Without googling does anyone know why the rings are collected
    They are worth 1p each for charity
    Answer when I get my next pint

    Pop and crisps (sort of).

    For those that have missed the £1.25 prices on Pringles (200g) and are now stuck with vs £2.25 at T, W's 2 for £4 and, presumably, vs M at £2, I noticed that Pringles - Emmental Cheese (190g rather than 200g) are at £1.29 in Poundstretcher. Or for those that just like that version. Careful the others at £1.29 are much lower weight. It may be possible to get some Pringles 190g, probably not Emmental Cheese but maybe including that, at much lower price if short-dated.

    Vimto Fizzy Zero and Vimto Fizzy Fruit Juice (6 cans packs for each) should each be A £2.80 vs M £1.87, not available in Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland - best appears to be the Fruit Juice version in Iceland at £1.75 or Zero Avs S £2.00. Fruit Juice may be Avs S £2.00 if you are not close enough to an Iceland to save the 5p.

    Hello all
    I have been reading but not posting..ive been hours trying to get rid of 'the little green robot' on my phone but without success- it was an old phone for the 3 sim, but I cant get on google playstore because of the green robot- so wuntu will proceed without me
    I had forgotten about idh tix but managed to get them for the Wednesday..i will be in London doing my babysitting duties til lunchtime so am hoping pop in early afternoon, so if elite are around I may be able to say hello in person
    I went to £land today and bought 2.5 litres of dulux endurance for £5...I think I saw this on the darkside...they only had 3 colours, banana split (yellow) bright blue and Timeless cream/magnolia which I bought...I don't know if other stores have different colours but that's all that were in mine.
    popped into T for the magazines- nothing for me in them at the moment but you never know at what offers are looming. I also wanted the nandos gift card as they have 15% til sunday but 2 stores I went to hadn't got them its a shame as we use these on the way to London babysitting we stop in at Beckton which is then only 20mins from DS.
    Morrison have cheerios on offer at £1.43 these are also on shopmum with £1 back so they are only 43p
    Then on to S petrol 6 x £10 = 1 x 1000 the rest 200
    7 instore shops 3 x 200, 2 x 500 1x1000 and 1 x5000
    but 1 of the shops I also had a till split of 1200 point when spending £30 on clothes- I came away with loads of clothes that came to exactly £30 that were in the sale- now to try them on and see if they fit
    A couple of ideas for S £10 shop :-
    Bahlsen biscuits on offer £1 on cos 50p therefore 10 pkts qualifies for a voucher + £5 from cos. there are 2 flavours so 2 shops mine dated end of Oct next year.
    linda McCartney sausages £1 gj 40p
    b.e fish fingers omega 3 £2 tcb 75p
    butterscotch sauce £1.50 cos 75p
    total yogurt £1.10 cos £1.10
    hobnobs £1.00 tcb 50p
    haribo £1.00 tcb 40p
    mr crumb stuffing £2.00 cos £1,00
    bahlsen biscuit £1.00 cos 50p

    TOTAL= £10.60 £4.40 CASH BACK
    my store doesn't have the gu dessert or the pea snacks for shopmum cb

    Just catching up while on the train home. My A had some luscious washing up bowls, bins and something else, not sure what, in glorious pink and blue for 50p each. Loads of them! I bought one washing up bowl but spent a long time trying to think what I might use the bins for...

    I didnt get to S today. Unexpected work stuff took me in the opposite direction

    But it sounds like lots of us did really well.

    My first visit will be tomorrow pm and I've got lots of coupons, cashback ideas and a plan to buy lots of Tassimo, Felix cat food and Perhaps beer
