    But the hot chocolate in neros today was very lovely .
    Incidentally I went into Savers afterwards and found they stocked my hair colour
    But our WHSmiths didn't have the free 0002 cans
    And then we went to Morribobs for a beans shop and hopefully got 3000 points

    I blame ILTS



    Seriously though thanks ILTS. I didn't partake in getting gift sets before Xmas in As at least this way I don't have to remember to use any APGs

    Just hope my Jacobs arrive, none in store.

    Anyone wanting huge Panetonne in lovely Xmas tins 1.25 I didn't buy one and can't see they sold all they had in bmth today.

    Following on from yesterday's discussion about beans, my OH had some 5 Beanz with dinner tonight. Not too bad, they were dated 11/2013

    Fuzzgun some of the men's sets incl the minis in my local were with the men's toiletries at one end and no one was taking them from there as they didn't have 75% sign in front but they did have the red Xmas strip behind the original prices.

    There were also other duo Lynx sets dotted round the store without the wash things but they had a save sign down to about 2.50 I'm 99% sure these were not included in the sale. HTHs

    Morries have pulled the beans offer

    Supermarkets should learn to play by the rules and see promotions through to the end.....just like we do

    Hope everyone managed to get some

    Evening all

    Tiny, well done on your haul. Nothing like that in my store, but happy with my few bits

    I have had an accident with my car. I was just testing my hand brake was on and I have no idea what I done but the car rolled down the hill and into the neighbors porch about 50 yards away I was dangling along but no one was injured expect me as badly bruised and the car is now immobile.

    Neighbour was lovely and came over and made me a cuppa She is the same as me its only a car and building and both will be covered by my insurance

    Hopefully those who wanted beans got some before they changed the offer.

    Sorry it is over for anyone who missed out.

    From my own perspective I hope they havent reversed my vouchers!

    Think I'm going to have to leave my cushions in the car tonight

    Mr TS not particularly happy with my bargains He has no idea how much anything costs though. He thinks I should save the money now and just buy when I actually need it all....he has no idea.
    Originally posted by Tinyshoes
    Oh TS my dear old grumpy has no idea either, when I come home I am usually greeted with 'and what have you bought now!'

    He does though, when I explain things, brag a little to his mates about how cheap I get stuff for.

    The boot of my car is also a store room, unfortunately my car is now the better car for long trips, so I need plenty of notice to clear the boot and stash stuff elsewhere!
