I think it still gets taken off. I know when you use an extra points coupon it goes through even if the bogofs take it under the amount. HTH.
Had to get some clothes today for DS DD and shoes for DH. Spent £40 not from the GC but still eek! Got 5 dresses for DD though and 2 pairs shoes for DS and 1 for DH.
DS is really into Dr Who so just wants to wear baseball boots all the time, wasn't able to get boots but got little shoes, £4.50 for 2 pairs. The sale is on in Matalan if it's any help to anyone. They also have 3 for 2 on all of their school uniforms.
Don't know if anyone has any suggestions but DS is really thin (still wearing 12-18 months shorts and he's 5 in December) but also quite tall. Does anyone know where I might be able to get him some school trousers that actually fit him? Thanks, Kaz.

I have just updated my signature and I am running on £257.75 for the month, but that doesn't include the trip I made to the wholefood wholesaler this morning (need to deduct a few items for friends before I know the total) to get breadflour (huge great big sack!) etc.Herewegoagain - you tomatoes have got 'blossom end rot'. It's very common with toms grown in greenhouses and conservatories. I find watering little and often is best.
Have a good weekend everyone.

Good to have you back Mrs M
Budget is completely blown for this month, we are now £40.62 over Not helped by a quick trip to Mr T for "a few bits" for a picnic tomorrow as we are off to an open air concert (yes, I am praying the weather improves!!) Anyway, bits came to over £12 :eek: We were going to get a chicken from the butcher tomorrow and have a roast on Sunday, but have now decided to see if we can live off what we have till I get paid next Thursday, so we don't go any further over the budget. Got loads in the cupboards and freezer, so should be OK.
Just but the BM on to make some cheese & marmite twists and may have a go at breadsticks to take with us tomorrow too.
Off to try a slice of the chocolate yogurt cake I made on Wednesday now - am amazed we've managed to resist it for so long!!!
Oh, and not sure if this is a GC thing, but does anyone have any tips for getting blood out of clothes? Seem to remember soaking them in salt water is good, but not sure if I'm making that up!!!

Well I have really enjoyed reading this thread; your recipes are fabulous and I imagine some of you are incapable of the disorganisation my life consists of (annelouise I'm looking at you...)
I kinda forgot that as I don't work summer hols and am away this will be a weird month for food. So... no 2nd veg box and eating out in Paris :j, I think I'm gonna call it quits now and say I have learnt a lot and will try again in September which will be a normal month.
Thanks for everything lovely people!

Indeed, I am looking forward to it; only there for 4 days though. Any recommendations appreciated, how to keep to OS ways in an expensive city. I know it isn't exactly in the remit of the grocery challenge but if anyone knows the best place to buy a good baguette...
