    Vegan pizza, free with voucher (beetroot crust with chestnut mushrooms topping; unexpectedly nice) 5,49


    Butter (unopened packet), leftover from church brunch 1,49 (used to make two loads of angel cakes, for lunch boxes)


    I don't seem to have mentioned them before, but in June I received my ecovouchers from my last job, to a value of 230 euros. With last year's and this year's vouchers from husband and me, we have bought an electric bicycle; we had to pay just 73 euros extra :) Work will reimburse me 23cents/km, which boils down to 4,28/day, or 21,40/week; so, within a month I will have my money back :D

    Hello lurkers!

    35 loyalty points for buying at least EUR 7 of frozen items with a voucher

    53 loyalty points from wombled receipts

    DD1 had 3 H&M gift cards from her birthday, so we went shopping :) I remembered from somewhere that H&M will accept a shopping bag full of old clothes, and give you a voucher; details were fuzzy in my brain :) Anyway, I packed a regular bag full of old, worn, torn clothes and handed it in. The box in the shop said they accept textiles in any shape or form, as long as it's clean, and they gave me a '15% off 1 item' voucher. DD1 bought a fancy sweater, and received a EUR 2,52 discount. I also bought some socks for her, and paid with the gift cards, which are now finished. I will give her the money I spent on the socks for her piggybank. Why do 10&11-year olds give each other gift cards for birthday gifts?

    1 handful of small lettershaped tea biscuits, set out for trial at supermarket; they were dd2's snack today €0,05
    1 half-baguette with Italian filling, leftovers from business lunch €2 (which I was willing to spend on a snack from the machine, as I was still hungry after my lunch. It's probably from shock, because I was hit on my bike by a car last night, totally his fault and I'm a bit sore, but no major damage so far)

    The swimming pool I took dds to this afternoon is part of a discount programme I have a card for, they are just not very vocal about it. Last time, I only noticed afterwards on their website, they never mentioned it or had any sign displayed. So, this time, I asked for it. The discount gets deposited on a type of savings card, and the discount made us reach the pay-out threshold, so the pool people immediately offered us a €10 moneyback on our entrance fee. A bit complicated to explain, but it worked and I'm very pleased.
