  • Making a real effort to get back on top of things now. Did a "proper" shop at Mr M on Saturday and realised that they are doing their Christmas vouchers campaign again:

    Spend £40 and get a coupon. If you get coupons in 6 different weeks between now and Christmas you can swap them for a £25 voucher (if anyone managed to get a coupon last week you can collect 8 in the 8 weeks before Christmas for a £30 voucher)

    Hope that helps some people. I will be making up any weekly visits that don't hit £40 with things for my second purse shop ;)

    Hi everyone,

    Just settled up with 2nd purse for items used this week - total of £43.35. I have tonight placed an AF order - haven't used them in ages and it's mostly packed lunch bits and bobs with some store cupboard items too. Total of £40.45 (I think!) so will adjust my total on my sig once I have the true figure.

    Take care everyone
    Coxy

    Hi everyone,

    This week I have used £25.20 of stock so my new totals are:

    2nd purse: £97.27
    3rd purse: £73.04

    I still have another week left of the November GC, so will tot up next weeks spends before making the switch over to 3rd purse. 3rd purse funds are going to be used for ski wear as we are going with friends in February :D

    Really really want to make another DR order, but there doesn't seem to be anything on a really good deal at the moment. We still have 5 x steak mince, 3 x lamb mince, beef shin, and diced pork in the freezer. Would be nice to get some more casserole meat but nothing has grabbed me yet. Also I used the last of the pork sausages today - we love those sausages :D

    Hope everyone else is doing well with their shops. Feeling rather lonely on here :o

  • Hi all,

    sorry not posted in a long time but a bit ashamed as my buying got a bit out of control and my SP owes me over £100!!! I still very much believe in this system and am continuing to plug away, but I think that it will take me quite a long time to pay this amount back! I do, however, have quite an amazing stockpile, so all is not lost! I have more bubble bath & couscous than I could ever possibly use, so it could be worse!
    2nd Purse #036 £46.69/£50.00 :) 3rd Purse £30.02
