    It seems to be finishing a week early this year...I'm sure in previous years its been going nearer to christmas,but I guess it goes like that as the calendar dictates.
    frugal October...41.82 of 40 food shopping spend for the 2 of us!

    Superdrug


    Kids fun flossers 15p

    Kids toothpaste 9p

    Pitrock deo 41p

    And finally hair dye 4p!!! Yes 4p, and I thought I got a bargain when I bought them for 20p other week. And no I didn't leave them there

    This was a store I hadn't been too before, as not seen the kids stuff rtc in mine.

    Was thinking this morning would I be the only one on a list of not having done an APG for the gift sets.

    Just can't get my head around it, been far too long since I did one, and my track record of forgetting to use the bloomin voucher is putting me off...

    Sadas to find I was charged 12 for two of the sets & 7 for the other all three were identical, except for the bar codes!!! :mad. Two had stuck on codes the other didnt, my husband wasnt happy with me at all, I made him drive me back to sadas to get my pennies back! They wanted to just give me the two 5 over charges back, but of course I wasnt having that so ask for a full refund of all three, so that was the start & end of my glitchy toiletry sets, xx just havent bothered since, our sadas isnt around the corner have to travel to it & have to rely on my husband driving me as dont drive myself so me & you Tiny Shoes are in the same boat!

    I’m itching to take a walk to waities, so does anyone think the 6 off 30 voucher will work on half price choccies, do you think the till will pick up full price before it deducts vouchers & half price choccies?? Xx what I mean is would I have to buy 30 of half price choccies or just 15 worth?? I’m so thick at this! X

    No the till will only see the price they scan at towards your conditional spend unfortunately.

    It's only offers and discounts it doesn't see like 342, BOGOF, 3 for 10 etc and your PYO discount.

    You can help your spends buy adding the most expensive newspaper, the magazine and hot drink to your shop though. HTHs

    I did come across some bargains at our local Trespass store today, seems the whole upstairs (that used to have tent display when it was Oswald Bailey) now is a whole clearance section.

    These were 4.99 , still 10.99 online RRP 24.99

    https://www.trespass.com/yasmine-womens-slipper-boots?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI3JOcko_p1wIVRrvtCh3v1QpXEA QYAiABEgJ9R_D_BwE#color=Navy&size=36/37

    And these were 2.99, still 10.99 online too. Think Teeny will love them.

    https://www.trespass.com/sootie-girls-slipper-boots

    Anyone reading who is local will know where I shop. Still few left size 5/6 adult and size 10 kids ones.

    I'm still waiting to see if waities loves me.

    No conditional spends here yet, DD got hers but said she would have no problem spending 40. I haven't taught her well.
