    Is everyone loving the Dream overage in T?

    I needed sour cream yesterday for a chilli and popped in after work. I had no money on me but found 20p in the bottom of my handbag.

    I used one voucher and got the little pot of sour cream for 10p after using the coupon

    What can I get today to spend the other 10p , now safely deposited in my purse.

    Good morning all...

    It's not often that I do a midweek toiletry update but the glitch got the better of me yesterday so I need to declare 6 in....3 hand washes and 3 aveeno,none of which I actually needed but considering it all worked out at just over £1 with the use of coupons I think it needed to be done.

    But that will be my only dip into the toiletry glitch for the foreseeable future.......

    I have one of those nothing to do days today...I had things planned but they are not working out so here I am.....billy no mates today!

    Have a lovely day all.

    Good morning.

    Have any of you coming off the BGas Fix made decisions on who you are moving to? Although they are unknown and reviews, aren't brilliant on the energy club blurb, I am considering 1resa as it is a 12 month fix with no penalty (so I can switch again if they mess up/something cheaper comes along). Has anyone found a cashback incentive to switch or a better deal? Maybe one of the other comparison sites through TCB/Q would be a better route. My thinking is the gas and electric will come through no matter who is supplying it, and you are protected by the regulator if they mess up.

    LEJC surely though this is the time to stock up. I understand the goal you have set yourself but if you're getting six items for just over a pound that has to be worth it. I haven't got any aveeno vouchers or else I would be stocking up. I think I got 6 or 12 last time when they were £2 ish each and I thought that was a bargain
    Hope everyone is well, I am slightly disheartened at having to go to work today after DM declaring it was Friday.
    I've finally got my appointment for my brain scan next Saturday morning, I'm so hoping they can discover what the problem is and help clear the fog abit.
    The Sun is shining which makes a nice change its feeling very autumnal too early this year.

    Limited stock though in my A so I wasnt able to give it a real blast!

    Has the chemo affected your memory? I'm hoping that's all it is but definitely need to get it checked out. I went to the GP in November so it hasn't taken them long

    Di...theres a bit of a difference between stocking up and adding to an already mounting stock,but I understand the thinking!
    I literally have well into the hundreds of the most common toiletries and I quite honestly think that with careful and needed stock rotation I will never actually need to buy anything again.

    I always thought that I didn't get much in to test but really the freebies that way probably keep me going in all things face cream related....and actually the only thing I really buy nowadays is lipstick...but only because I'm a one shade girl.

    I have to confess that actually I was a little disappointed yesterday that A had no face wipes else I would have given those a bash...but I can't have it all.

    Oh my...I had no idea you were up for a scan...fingers crossed they get a good picture of everything going on and all is ok x

    Two minutes after reading your post, I thought your scan was this Saturday not next Saturday

    Seriously though, as well as my memory, my whole thought process seems to have slowed down. I struggle sometimes to find the right words towards the end of a sentence.
    The most annoying thing is when my wife keeps finishing off my sentences for me - she gets it wrong most of the time! This has all been since the chemotherapy which was completed last May.
