    Can't find a link to this on Asda, just on the Whitworths website.

    Unsure how much they were originally, but 2 in store this morning. Well worth it for everything in the box, weighs a ton.

    Well done Marmie's DS.

    Managed a NSD quite easily - have not set foot outside.

    Tomorrow I shall 'shop' from the boot of the car - there are 4 boxes biscuits, 2 boxes Jelly Babies, Bendicks chocs, approx 20 litres of longlife soya milk, several bags of large lemons, and goodness knows what else, all from previous shops including yesterday. Bringing that lot in should squelch any desire to go for more...

    Lunch was Ardennes pate on toast - my 29p pate from Co op, bought with moc a few weeks back, the rest needs eating by tomorrow. Dinner was chicken cooked with lots of lemon and garlic and was amazing. Plenty left for tomorrow too.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.

    Jan 18 - grocery/household to 14/1 = 38.42

    Dont get the salad mountain reference with you. I get what CF is on about as its where he work. Or is this some sort of slang for the word work

    Good luck with the steps. I cant even seem to reach my target of 7000 a day Wonder if how you set the stride setting affects the number of steps.

    I was ashamed to tell you how many steps I did yesterday but today Ive done half as much

    On a positive note, I havent had a drink yet

    New 3 for 2- this morning signs were going up for John Frieda on 3 for 2 and Aussie hair products in Asda. Didnt get pics as they were just setting shelving up and moving stock.

    The Aveeno body creams and Aveeno handcreams are still showing 3 for 2.

    The Vaseline Intensive Care handcream still had 3 for 2 label and is still showing at 2 in Sainsbobs (40p each)

    Looks like a couple of other good comparisons for handcreams

    UNTESTED

    Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream Unscented

    3.40 in Asda and 1.85 Waitrose (half price offer).

    Works out at 53p each.

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda-compare-prices/Body_Care/Neutrogena_Norwegian_Formula_Hand_Cream_Unscented_ 50ml.html?TrackingCode=AQQIAAE.I5FFjTQmGUSQ7LeVCCK 0AA


    UNTESTED

    Aveeno Intensive Relief Handcream with Oatmeal (green top)
    5 Asda v 3.33 in Tesco.

    Work out at 1.33 each

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/Shopping/FindProducts.aspx?query=aveeno+intensive+hand+crea m&store=ASDA

    If tempted check signage in store and offer comes off at the till.
