    Best price I have seen for the Rice Dream.

    Waitrose half price offers, 80p. Only on offer until tomorrow.

    https://www.waitrose.com/ecom/products/rice-dream-quinoa/606443-601728-601729

    Were quite happy to take 3 of the £1.50 coupons yesterday, along with a cat food coupon I had, plus free coffee and the newspaper

    My card then produced a Waitrose till spit for a free 1 litre carton of Innocent Coconut Water. That is currently £2.77. Think this was probably generated from the glitch on the Innocent fruit juices a few weeks back. Very useful towards another £10 next Sunday.

    You take your own drink to PEx? I am not sure I would be able to do that - I am briefing Little Anons that they are having water next time and drinks when they get home .

    Those little robertsons squash'd bottles would be good for this. Quick squirt in the water when no staff are looking

    ETA Ive found another one that seems to be sweetened with something called Stevia and suppose to not leave any aftertaste which the robertson one does apparently
    Oasis Mighty Drops

    £2 A vs £1.50 W

    Sunday Times TV section mentioned a new series on S4C called "bangs". Set in Port Talbot, not a million miles from where I grew up (and watching on TV means you don't get the smell!).

    I gave it a go, but most of the dialogue was in welsh. I happily watch sub titled foreign language series on Walter Presents on Ch4. I suppose its a political point not to sub title S4C, but how many Port Talbot residents have Welsh as their first language? Probably less than 10%.

    Half way through I found out that turning sub titles on for S4C means you get English subtitles. (Which makes me think, how to welsh speakers get welsh subtitles?).

    BG email just now "Your monthly payment amount needs to change from £69.89 to £124.36."

    I submitted my readings as requested - it said as a result I was in credit by £15. So imagine my surprise just now when the bill has come through. I know the fix ends next month and that it will be going up, but seriously? Are they having a laugh?

    Ask about the duel fuel discount as they told me they are also stopping the £15 discount.

    Morning peeps.

    Morning peeps.

    Just about to go out and hopefully get the Greggs deal.

    I'm also going to get a couple (or more) of free drinks from P&P.

    Then onto A's to fill up on the 3 for 2 deals.
    Only doing this because of wombles.

    My Mr T goes live today so Ive been thinking about my £20 spend - how best to use but getting cashback items and then coupons to get it below £20.

    Good morning.

    You probably know this already but I didn't so I am sharing in case it is useful. On an offer on HUKD someone provided a link to a site which checks stock availability in Arg0s nationwide. I know you can do it on their site/app, but I have always found it a faff and it limits how many stores it shows at once.

    Once you have set your postcode, this site brings up all stores starting with the nearest as one list. I have no idea how accurate it is, but it may be of use if chasing a particular deal. It is www.checknow.co.uk.

    I popped into Lidl today to return a pack of peppers bought yesterday that were well past their best. The green one was mouldy.

    I think it's the first time I've ever had to return anything.

    There was someone moving boxes around at the front of the store so I asked her if I could change them.

    Yes she said. Went and got a fresh pack. Didn't even want to see my receipt.

    I'm starting to think she didn't even work there

    (I know most people would be out of their suit and into jeans as soon as they got home but Oh thinks this would be exhausting so he skips a step and goes straight from work suit into his sleep suit - hence still being in work suit going shopping)
