    The half price offer on mince looks to have finished its back to the one in the 3 for £10 offer not quite as good deal.

    Taylor's ground coffee Italian roast or lazy Sunday work out £1.39 pack if added to your picks. Guardian is good paper to buy as it's £2

    Last week I picked up a Times newspaper at £1.60, a coffee and 2 different magazines at £2 each which got my total off to a good start.

    I did a mainly cat food shop with Felix Fred ....which might not be any use to you.

    However the ecological kitchen towels are worth putting in my picks as is the Essential Cheddar strength 4.

    Also look for locarr post on mince....unsure which one it was though.

    Have you any coupons you can use?

    Check out cashback sites too

    Morning all

    Off to W armed with £6/£30 Cond Spends.
    Can anyone give me a quick update on what PYO items to go for, as well as the usual Coffee/Mag/paper?

    Might nip into A's as it's near W's too, be rude not to

    TIA

    Morning all - Little Sis now arrived from Oz. Other Sis back from Antigua really tanned despite Irma but flying to Boston tomorrow to pick up a cruise along the eastern seaboard. Will be back the week before DDs Wedding.

    Cooked a lovely piece of Gammon last night tasted even better as got DTD on it. Went to T's expecting to pay full price but the Elite Fairy waved her wand and hey presto . So nice family get together catching up with each other.

    Just back from As and the Lynx deodorants and body sprays no longer on 3 for 2 checked at CS.

    I suppose I could still get a carton for OHs shopimum from waitrose even if I cant do the tmf again - still not too bad for £1 a litre and they have a good use by dates

    Good Afternoon

    A story to tell about Sky

    Needed to ring Sky about my account and get a new deal.

    Retentions opened 8-45am but thought I wouldn't have time to ring then before mums. I am normally on phone ages and ages

    So went mums came home made dinner . Ate dinner then got comfy and rang

    Asked for retentions and got told 30 mins or longer wait by robot

    Gets ready to listen to carp music

    But no need phone was picked up straight away by a nice lady

    On phone less than 14 mins and in that time talked about Sky mobile sim only, our Poppy , weather and my Sky account

    Outcome paying same as last 18 months free unlimited broadband and just paying £18-99 next 12 months for landline which she could see I don't use. I don't even possess a landline phone.
