    Sada seems to be having a bit of a catfood clearance of its own brand cat food - not all of it is marked up so its worth getting things price checked.

    I saw the very tiny little tins down to 20p each - good for those cats with delicate appetites. These would also make good filler items, more use than the 10p sweeties.

    I got Tiger select double delights fish duo tweleve 100g sachets for £1
    barcode 8843
    The other Tiger selects were £2 which is still a very good price

    Tiger chicken and turkey in jelly 4 x 100g
    barcode 5587
    Tiger tuna in jelly 4 x 100g
    barcode 2818
    both of these were 50p each

    These might be good as fillers if you have wombled vouchers to use up - always good for RSPCA collections and food banks if you don't have a cat herd yourself.

    I used my other over large voucher from a DB shop just on cat food - we have 3, all rescue cats plus a walk by cat and at least 2 passing foxes so nothing goes to waste

    After a long hot journey home Bear ran through the house discarding his clothes as he went, flung open the French doors and road off on Eric the Camel in search of an oasis, or as Bear likes to call it a hot tub.

Had a very cosmopolitan feel with many cultures enjoying meet ups include a huge Hindu party ( think is was a birthday) and their music was the backdrop to our conversations. Lovely play area for kids when you could get them out of the trees they climbed and an ice cream kiosk with huge range of flavours.
    Lush fillet steak at Dun cow last night.

    A really lovely weekend.

    Glad bear can still make you laugh. Tend to mostly use instagram for his shennanigans but knew the elite would enjoy today's photos.

    Am I the only one now still persevering with the walkers thingy?

    I did the full five codes yesterday and got 4 winners

    but only three emails came through - not sure what to do now - I def had 4 winners as I checked my history.
    Has anyone else had this happen to them?

    Not sure if its worth contacting them - how its possible to work out which coupon did not come through. If anyone has had problems and contacted walkers was it resolved?

    My sada only has salt and vinegar left now with the promotional packs. I did 3 codes today and not a single winner

    I also want to thank the kind persons who alerted us to the clearance 25 washes laundry liquid, two flavours in Waitrose
    - buy one and get one free for £1.60. I got the hint of woodland rose and amber version
    barcode ends 3844

    I didn't go too mad, just got 8 bottles as this will probably see me through until next year now.

    It brought my shop total to over £10 before discounts so that meant I could get a Sunday Times free.
    And free coffee
    And I got both of the waitrose magazines free, taking another £4 off the bill.
    am some useful receipt for shoppix, receipt pig and shopprize etc

    I was down to my last bottle and I've been using the Aldi version as a stop gap so 2 big problems solved today, lack of laundry liquid and lack of cat food

    coupon for 50p in waities food mag page 18 passata 400g is £1.05 and on mypicks so 44p each
    light dressing £2.04 = £1.13
    Originally posted by zippydooda
    Huge thanks for this heads up. It took a bit of finding as the passata in a tin rather than a bottle but on my receipt it took 21p off for the PYO and also £2 off as I got another magazine minus the 50p MOC I only had 34p to pay

    (receipt says Waitrose benefits saved £2.21)

    Very happy with this - it even has basil in it so its even more money saving

    I wish I could get more of these MOCs - passata is something I use a lot of but waitrose is a bit of a drive for us to get to only getting one magazine at a time

    Managed to get a lot of the waitrose laundy liquid as I had a £15 john lewis card burning a hole in my pocket after complaining about some food availability in their restaurant and also had a 6 of £30 and 5pc off using my santander card. Lovely SA also asked if i wanted more liquid as she saw I had cleared the shelf!

    Anyone with Santander I had a really good select offer with them 10pc off at Morrisons. To my delight this worked on a full tank of petrol so very lucrative. HTH somebody. Love hearing and seeing the elite's whoopsies. Just got back from lake district and had a beatiful lodge Keswick retreat for £300 per week plus tcb real bargain. Weather very disappointing though and back in winter anorak.
