    No worries mrs Mac. I'm going to hold out for a week. See if a good deal comes up.

    Meanwhile...beans. Off to morries now, do I need to buy a particular number of tins each time? Or just up to 20 tins?

    Thanks all

    This is a good link, not all 11 year olds are fans of museums so choose something with an interesting exhibition

    Does anyone on here play the 'Snatch' app game ?


    Just started myself a few days ago, and wondered what worthwhile prizes anyone has won recently.

    Just had a very tearful call from my 34 years DS. One of his cats was run over this morning and killed. He doesnt know what to do about his other cat ( the dead cat's sister ) or how to tell his 2 year old daughter ( who loved the cat dearly - was always showing him her dolls etc ). Sad

    The Felix Xmas treats tins that were reduced from 4 in Tesco to 2, went back up to 4.

    But this morning they are scanning at 75p
    Contains 5x packs of Felix treats which are usually 1 or more a pack.

    Also the Pedigree Turkey Jumbones now 40p and the turkey flavour Schmackos (10 sticks) are 20p. BBE 01-03-19.

    Tesco's own equivalent of the schmackos (20 in pack), Turkey and Sage flavour, are scanning at 20p.

    These were in a superstore
