    afternoon all.

    Sheba 12 packs are on Greenjim, on offer in Sainsbobs this week still a bit expensive. It does the cats good to have a change of food, I give one of the special sachets to Sophie or Ronnie if I am feeding them on their own.

    I got one of the Sheba boxes with a sample sachet of sheba fish soup in, flashed boxes. The sample is only 40g but actually that is sufficient, Sophie didnt even finish a 50g sachet this morning, Treacle as always finished off the left overs.

    Also inside a 50p MOC for sheba soup

    Reading the back of the MOC though I was surprised to see that these fish soups are classed as treats - who would have thought that.
    They only provide 10% of the calories needed and it said to adjust the rest of the days feeds to allow for them.
    I am sure many people buy fish soups and similar for cats with small delicate appetites,
    who like really wet food and turn their noses up at regular non Sheba sachets - I will have to watch the adverts now to see if it states this, about them being treat food.

    I was in Sainsbobs in search of the free crisps on COS - only 6 packs left on the shelf so I am glad I didnt leave it any later.
    These will be going into the food bank collection - we have a house full of walkers as it is

    Then we went to see if anything exciting was on the reduced sections and I spotted a couple of real handful packs blood orange and dark chocolate - reduced from £1 to 69p. I checked COS to see if they were still listed and they were - 50p cashback each so only 19p in real money.
    Also found munchy seeds honey in the little plastic box reduced from £2.20 to £1.10 with £1 cashback from COS
    I am going to do little sundaes with strawberries and elmlea (free or nearly from TCB) and munchy seeds honey sprinkled on top

    These three all short dated but they will soon be eaten.

    We then went and had a look at the section these came from (near bakery in our store) and found the munchy seeds handy packs 25g on offer for 50p each - COS has 35p cashback so not free but good value for 15p after cashback. Expiry dates are December and January so very long dated.
    Our store only had the honey and chilli versions - chilli ones might be good for snacking with beer (or free cider )
    Honey version - sprinkled on salads, on top of cream or into muesli.

    So that turned out to be a more exciting shop than we anticipated

    also on the way in we did the recycling and someone had kindly left a useful blue flat plastic storage box which after Ive given it a good scrub will be good for storing all of the 'good' snacks - nakd bars, trex bars and munchy seeds and handfuls and graze boxes

    Oddly enough I wombled a 160 nectar pointer on the car parker for Judes - so £1 off and 160 points towards the Pizza Express summer spectacular .... very tempting


    Check your emails from Judes ice cream this morning as they include a £1 MOC - it looks like a normal print off as many as you need coupon.

    These are on offer in Waitrose 342 so if your store stocks them and you have three £1 MOCs they work out at a very reasonable price and they would make a good addition to a £10 shop for a free newspaper and fee coffee.

    Actually that is all you would need - 3 Judes, coffee and newspaper

    Also Waitrose have the shloer on offer - 241 £1.99 and its on shopimum buy one get one free - cant figure out if you need to buy 2 bottles or 4 ....

    has anyone else got this offer on their Nectar webpage? Its only on my nectar - not OHs so it must be targeted.


    I am trying to load the offer onto my card and it wont load - might have to try doing it via the app later.
    When I click on it, it just goes to a page where the brands are listed.
    You have to swipe three times so your sainsbobs shop must count as one swipe and then there are 450 places to choose from.
    Obviously trying to spend the least amount possible but 450 brands are going to take some wading through


    How to get this offer
    1.Click 'Load to card' to opt in
    2.Make a purchase and swipe your Nectar card at 3 different Nectar brands before 26 July 2017
    3.Collect 1,000 points
    4.Points will be awarded within 28 days of offer expiry



    Terms and Conditions


    Click 'Load to card' to Opt-In to this offer. For a list of brands you can swipe your Nectar card at visit: https://www.nectar.com/brands. Shop with at least 3 different Nectar brands between 06/07/2017 - 26/07/2017 and swipe your Nectar card to be eligible for this bonus point offer. Points will be awarded within 28 days of offer expiry.

    Both of us have the swipe 8 times and get 100 points offers - annoying when I've already done todays shops - after the cashback bits I could have got 3 extra swipes for the remaining 3 items I had.
    We also have odd things for extra points - I've got dole pineapple and OH has Heinz serious sauce which are both on offer and both useful items plus they give us an extra swipe and an extra receipt to scan.
    All these offers I've been able to active no problem
