    I'm ploughing through a mountain of internet surveys this afternoon and one has really sparked my interest....it's titled What are the main influences of your meal planning?

    my answer in short is the choice available in the reduced cabinet!

    The muller toffee yogurt with golden hoops is now showing as the halloween muller, both in description and picture.

    The Toffee yogurt with hoops may well be missing from the apg now.

    any recommendations for car insurance? both mine and husbands both due in 2 weeks, looked at admiral multicar and its double what we would pay normally £1100!! I don't think so! I thought that may have worked out cheaper! husbands seems to have gone up around 40 quid this year and mine has doubled........no accidents/incidents either! currently with esure AARRGGHHH doing my nut in lol

    This car insurance business all seems extremely random. I am with esure and when it came to renewal I checked everywhere, but remaining with esure turned out to be the cheapest option even with their £30 price hike on my policy.

    Other companies wanted over £100 more, so I've stayed put for what is now the fourth year running.

    I did think about de-selecting the legal expenses component to restore the price to last year's, but I had a chat with them about this and they said it covers you for no-fault incidents with uninsured drivers, so I've kept it on just in case.

    When I moved here 5 yrs ago my existing insurance doubled - presumably the urban effect - but the following year I went with esure which promptly halved it again. So even at increases of £30 a year it will take a good few years for it ever to reach £550 again.

    Seren, I would always have legal cover. I have had to use it twice over the years when third parties ran into me.

    In one case they claimed it was my fault even though they ran into the back of me and legal team were invaluable. The third party finally backed down but it took a year and a lot of pressure.

    The other time they intervened when insurers wanted me to take my car to London for repairs which was miles away.

    I love money saving but would never skimp on this

    He went out back to check and brought out 4 crates of each flavour.

    is anyone able to log into their nectar accounts?

    Several people on their fb page say they are having problems and neither me nor the missus can access our accounts

    Head & shoulders shampoo 500ml have been moved into the 3 for 2 in my store. I can't test for a couple of days but they should work out at £1.33 each against tesco and morrison but I haven't checked what ones.

    Thank you for this, it is nice to know that it does what it says. I'm in the very fortunate position of never having had to make a claim for any reason, well not since the late 70s anyway, so I wasn't sure whether it was just one of those money-spinning add-ons.

    So last week I didn't feel too well. Couldn't put my finger on it so just rested more than usual. By lunchtime I was in hospital hooked up to one of those heart monitor things I did tell them that my heart felt fine but would they listen . Anyway, they also connected a bag thing to me, saline drip it seems I was dehydrated, very embarrassed about this as I always tell people to drink, drink drink.

    I was only in there one day and they let me home in the evening I've learnt my lesson and have made sure I've got a days worth of water in bottles in the fridge, it's just filtered tap water but it's very I don't see the point of paying water bills then buying bottled water, I'm too tight and like the taste of our water

    Ok, off for catch-up xx
