    A reminder that the Aussie offer in M was expected to end today. Still showing 2 on m.com - I don't know if they will be rolled over. I don't think they will. However, each time I mention something M roll the offer over.

    Perhaps get your shopping done in A and check your receipt today, certainly if you have a look at m.com in daytime and find the price has changed. Even if m.com doesn't change by then, the price could have changed in store and be updated on m.com a little later. I think the 2 price is probably too good an offer, in terms of advertised offers, that M wouldn't be wanting to be keep it on for very long - I think it is more likely to end, as m.com originally stated, today.

    However, in just an attempt to tease me, I am teetering on the brink and starting to change my mind mid-sentence as I post this, looking at m.com as I do so. I now notice the end date is now no longer on m.com for at least one of these products selected at random and the products appear to be no longer showing the 2 as an offer on there: now they just say 2, which suggests that price will now continue (at least until it is changed) as a 'regular price'.

    Night Owl catch up for me. I was out last night at the home of one of our volunteers at Ravenswood Rescue, our Christmas Party Host made some food, the rest took bits and bobs of food, and I took lots of free ciders, lagers and soft drinks which went down well

    I also took a larges selection of toiletries and gift sets and ran through what I had paid for each, the cheapest price you could buy them at right now, and what I was asking as a fair price but to get a good amount for the rescue. Sold plenty, and ended up with 50 to put in the pot, which held 10 from each of us as a donation for our night, rather than a meal in restaurant. It all went so well, we will do it like this in future. It was a wonderful happy gathering

    Got home about 10pm

    Good morning everyone. Happy Sunday. i agree TM, there is so much to do at the minute. Still not got any toiletries but am very temped with the Ausie - thanks Josie for the shop to copy.

    Did my first big gift shop yesterday & got 5 shops. This one did not work and I am certain I bought the correct one:

    Adidas Pure Game Trio Gift Set (Greeny yellow) - DID NOT WORK SATURDAY

    Came back n/a against T. Hope this helps someone. I now have loads of gifts for raffles, etc and will wrap a few for various Xmas appeals. Thanks everyone for test shops and 3Dogs for the list. Going back for more today to use my new large APGs again.

    For the B&H gifts, i was buying 1 of each then a 10 mens dove washbag. This allowed me to have a little overage for my fillers and also gave me male pressies for next year. Also saved on fillers as well.

    Off to feed my Xmas cakes now.

    I am going to separate this off as it may otherwise have been missed/unnoticed.

    3Dogs!

    The VO5s were and are no longer on 3Dogs' list and, although my A still has them in the display in the "3 for 2" aisle, it no longer has 3 for 2 showing on the shelving for them. It did have before - and, therefore, in a similar situation to the Original Sources, I now think they are no longer on the offer. My M list was out of date and I have now deleted them.

    3Dogs' list is also out of date. First, the Lynx shower gels are now off as A has reduced its price to 1 on them.

    Second, the list says that the Dove Handwash is now on a reduced price in M. However, it is not on a reduced price in M - there has been no change in price there but instead this was a glitch on Monday's price collection picking up incorrect pricing for M, at least on the original version, probably of 2 for 1.80 mbuy from some other product. It does not work from Wednesday's data and this glitch is now over:

    Today's comp. vs M:
    1x Dove Supreme Fine Silk Beauty Cream Hand Wash (250ml) 1.50 1.00
    2x Dove Original Beauty Cream Hand Wash (250ml) 3.00 2.00

    I suspected this was going to be the case and, indeed, it is. I was not unhappy with 1 price for M, although hoping for 2 for 1.80 (I suspect Silk would have given 1 even if the glitch had been on here as I think the 1.80 price on the list on the other Dove is not 90p each but is 2 for 1.80 mbuy and three total were bought but I was not going to buy six). I ended up with 3x 1.10 S.

    Fwiw, the SP Processed Peas tins, that were slightly glitching probably against Garden peas tin vs M, have now corrected from 21p M to 25p M. I ended up with same price vs S anyway.

    3Dogs is doing an excellent job trying to keep up, whilst I am being sent round from Antibac Wipes to Lemon Wipes to Antibac and then back again to Lemon due to stores putting their prices up, down, back up and back down on them.

    Hi bubbs I suspect that she has probably gone off cruising again. My reasoning being
    1. she was trying to get all her xmas shopping done last week
    2. she went around this time last year
    3. she last posted from Ikea cafe - probably Southampton

    I saw someone in your local getting a grilling last night over a 20+ APG

    Heard him saying about gift sets on offer in Tesco etc etc.

    Waited for him to come out to chat, but he must have gone out via the other exit.

Supervisor said to put it through as they knew it was the gift sets because they are much cheaper in T, but praised the (very young) cashier for checking as theyve had a few funny ones lately.
