    Are we still on last Wednesday (I had that impression a few hours ago to be honest when seeing some of the comps. I got), when I'd think the Snack Bars should now be 87p (perhaps my stores so far have changed back to 87p but maybe we have unchanged SELs from 50p in the collection stores or the price may still be 50p in M) and isn't the Cathedral at £1 a new offer as I only had that this week (didn't make the list) - but I also only remember the Lightly Spiced Wedges at £1 this week - or maybe they were £1 last week?

    I'm surprised that the McVities are still 50p for M, unless that is the real price in M, I'd have expected that to have changed by now and the fact it hasn't suggests to me it's still on last Wednesday (can sometimes take two days before it updates) - also the Semi-Skimmed Milk being N/A, might have expected that possibly to have come back if this had updated to Monday.

    I think unfortunately you may have been caught by the Cathedral being a new offer but the system still on last week - although you've also done well on the McVities snack bars that I would have thought would have changed by now (unless my stores are telling me incorrect info.).

    EDIT: According to msm, the Cathedral should have been £1.50 in M on 8th October (Monday) - although I did see £1 instore then. I think msm has not updated from m.com immediately and has caught up with £1 later. I think £1 was the price in M on Monday - it was according to my SEL anyway. I think the APG is still on last Wednesday (but also regarding the snack bars packs - McVities snack bars extended a little, but Cathedral City 180g still needs time to catch up).

    I was 65% thinking we were on Wednesday a few hours ago. I am now 80-90% thinking we're on Wednesday.

    I have decided "Pasta Bolognese" is Weight Watchers from Heinz Penne Bolognese (320g) at 63p RTC in M. (Not showing online, may never have made it online in the first place, apparently not available in A so it goes as a "buy in M" in any event as T should not match RTC prices in M even if they had it in one - or, even more unlikely?, more - of their three stores.)
    So, three out of three onto the list - and many thanks!

    Is that all the WWs there are on RTC in M? Any more for any more?

    Maxey's closed, Sunday Market & Car Boot closed - it's not the same anymore

    They work! (I think the fact they are a "new" item for me, from Monday, does not mean they weren't that price in M last week - I think they were, but this is just me getting round to taking details more properly and working out their weight adjustment.)

    I had someone buy me some fabric conditioner on a shop they did - at £2 again. Fortunately it turned out to be an own label that was non-comparable. Still no excuse for the 3x crisps though - the £1.50 would have been far more if only two multipacks had been bought - as it was, all three compared against straight £1 price at M, pointless buying three therefore as only one (or for me preferably two) is needed. The Surf Tropical at £6 A and £5 M helped make A a little less cheaper (less cheaper, they should have been more expensive) - the T comp. lost anyway and not nearly as much as it should have done as the Surf now being £7 in T saves us 30p a pop if they put that on a shop and T turns out best overall, ...and therefore pays £6 to A for them and not £4.50 vs M as items vs M would then not be the best.

    Speaking of items vs M, I am due to try three stores, one of them "new" (or rather an old favourite returned to - don't get excited, none of mine now have anything expansive, certainly not expecting much extra in there (famous last words!), more a confirmation (or denial) of prices I already have) - best I can do, but it's good, one morning, one afternoon and one evening apparently. Will see how I go - will have to be off as supposed to be in the store in the morning. I would say that my use of three stores is as good as TBG - in other words totally woeful() - but my three are probably slightly worse to be honest as I would expect TBG to have a store with a wider range than I have in my biggest one. Plus I have online too though, so can add some (but still missing stuff I know exists - don't know what price it is now at anymore), together with my helpers over WW meals! Anyway, goodnight!.
