    Thanks to izzeyb for the porridge

    Got both Scott and oats so. Told friend about oats so and asked if she wanted to go for some. We got there and she only wanted ONE box she actually knows I buy in bulk.

    Snap love the hair colour it is just how I imagine you

    I have been watching Girlfriends and thought it good , loved the fact that the main characters were not size 6 with high heels They seemed believable until tonight;s episode which was strange but worth watching

    Good night and it would be lovely to know if our missing ops were ok or see them back posting

    Or my attempt at a joke.

    I had written something far better than what is now above, but I could scream as I have just lost a post setting out what was good from M today. I am just going to have to explain that I am being taken out by appointments etc. on each of the next two days so will probably get to the list towards the weekend. I can't unfortunately set out everything again. So, in short, just look at the free from fresh and frozen (includes frozen Fish Bites 300g packs at 1 RTC each), also at frozen items more widely in M (for example Southern Fried Popping Chicken 50p RTC (I know A had much bigger pack at better price in the past), Simpli Quick items - not many people had that range in the first place I think - at 50p, Green Smoothie Mix at 1.20 RTC apparently), also several items in the world foods aisle on RTC for those that have world foods in their Ms.

    I am moving from Cherries 200g which may have gone from 1.47 to 2 in M to M's Wonky Cherries 200g at 1.14. Salad Peppers 3 pack have gone back to 3 for 2 in M (do not compare on APG) - also includes Closed Cup Mushrooms 300g. Portion Cucumber may compare vs M 22p (if necessary waiting a few days first if that only went onto this price yesterday or today - no idea, I didn't visit M on Monday).

    Frozen Eat Smart meals - points that were on until 4th February are obviously off now so those items will now never be as good if their prices remain at the current prices. They are therefore being removed. The Tree of Life products also appear not to have points offer on them anymore, so those on my list will be removed. A couple of items I have as RTC - Jordans Country Crisp Raisin Clusters 500g and American Pancake Mix (appears to be a new version of this last item now) now scan at full price, so I am to remove those as well, and the gardening items are coming back into M for the season to come back in a month or so. They are obviously appearing with full price SELs and no longer the RTCs from last year, so I will remove all the gardening items just in time for the season. I think, as regards their lowest price, they are now no good until right at the end of the season when they go back on clearance again.

    Did I mention the Corn Express Pen (10 A and 1 RTC M) - which I think would have worked last week if they ever had the product for M in the system - now being risky - seems to have cleared out of several stores and M price (if it was there) may now drop off the system? I may have done, in my lost post. Also the L'Oreal Sportsman gift set - long explanation, can't repeat, as to why on TBG list when probably clearance in M (RTC should not be compared against) - but now probably likely to have cleared from many stores and less likely to be in a TBG store anyway.

    Also I mentioned several Haggis products on RTC in M - but were probably beaten by Sains. a week or two ago? The Nuby baby products - bottles, feeding bowls etc. - that came in at 1 recently have now gone to 75p RTC.

    Probably much better when I am forced to do quick summaries like this and haven't got time to repeat the detail. That'll have to do for now. See you probably Friday late afternoon/Saturday onwards.

    I'd forgotten the main items - Colgate Max One Luminious and Max One Optic Toothpastes, were 2 in M, are now off in M. Could already be off on the APG if they were showing that on Monday. (I had put these at the outset of my lost post but obviously when trying to remember a few, they didn't come straight to mind again.)

    Now just the Luminious version as it seems Optic has no good comparisons - Luminious 3 for 2 in A (I hope still) vs T at 2 or in twos to compare against W 2 for 4.

    The Walkers Stax I now have, rightly or wrongly, as 1.25 in M so will be removing the one I had on the list as I no longer have 1 showing for it.

    It's also my turn to lose some items (although I have done better on other items than last time). I've lost the Yokebe products - one of which last seen on 3 RTC - from my last remaining store. I'm also unable to confirm whether Nestle Butterfinger Cups 4 pack are still 1 in M EDIT: [Butterfinger Cups now 1.50 in M according to online], so I am going to take those away, whether they still are or are not - let's just decide the price wasn't that good anyway. They're one of those items that appear on aisle ends in some Ms from time to time and then disappear the next week. A bit like the Walkers Stax that were in that situation for me last time, the only version I had, but different store visited this time that had them elsewhere. Anyway, of no relevance to anything - see you later!

    EDIT: Butterfinger Cups have now appeared online, showing "New" and are now 1.50 there - so, I have now got them, online and was right to be removing them. Was making efforts to find them instore as they were not online last week - but they are now there.

    I don't let anyone keep my receipts. They are your property. If you ever have to take something back (ie if it has gone off) without a receipt you are scuppered.

    I also had my transaction suspended today and transferred to customer services and told APGs are no longer being accepted at self scan, only manned checkouts. It was all polite however and my receipts were scribbled on and returned to me, and the APGs destroyed.

    Is this a store where they watch you/pounce on you at SS or are the voucher BC and receipt TC still working at SS (obviously in another A, not the store at which staff pulled you away from the SS and stopped you putting the vouchers through)?
