    1 handful of small lettershaped chocolatey tea biscuits, set out for trial at supermarket; they were dds' snack today €0,10

    New animal-baking-gardening store opening nearby: 1 bag for life, 1 kalanchoe (multicoloured - lovely), 1 bag of cat food, 1 dog toy. Dog toy was immediately passed on to broke friend with dog :) €5.

    Private health insurance reimbursed some health costs unexpectedly: €181. (I only recently found out I could submit these costs; I think I missed out on €181 for the first set of dd1's treatment, but I don't really mind. It's still pennies compared to what the public health insurance already paid, and we have decent incomes).


    ETA: hurray! I broke through the 1,000-GBP threshold!

    80 loyalty points for buying €6 of meat
    80 loyalty points for buying €6 of meat (the sm system has a glitch; it should prevent double points vouchers, but doesn't)
    75 loyalty points for buying €25 overall

    Remember the customer appreciation baggy I received early October? It contained a bottle of beer, that I drank last night, and handed in the bottle today for a 10 cent refund :)

    My company gave a press conference to promote our initiative, including a lunch: €1.
    The dessert was a local speciality, that I had only tasted as a supermarket product, and now in real-fresh-from-the-bakery form; it was delicious!

    499 loyalty points for buying a one-pot meal (semi-cooked, fresh, just need to wok/fry until done), making the product free. I picked a shrimp meal, because I don't really make that at home.
    95 loyalty points from wombled receipts.

    First Wobble post - two coupons for a free pot of tea from a lovely lady in the M&S cafe queue. Much appreciated by DH and myself!
    I can cook and sew, make flowers grow.

    That one-pot-meal was not one to buy! I finished it, because it wasn't awful, but will definitely not spend €5 on it if I am in a hurry to find a complete meal.


    The monthly booklet with coupons from the poshy supermarket close to me came in useful this month (usually, I only get the free product):


    60 loyalty points for buying €6 of meat
    90 loyalty points for buying €6 of meat
    120 loyalty points for buying €9 of meat (these 3 vouchers I used on just the one tray of €9,50 stewing beef :)


    40 loyalty points for buying Pukka tea (St Nicolas gift for husband)
    50 loyalty points for buying McCain Airfryer chips (after several taste-tests, we prefer this one)
    75 loyalty points for buying 2 bottles of bio strawberry lemonade (to be diluted)
    30 loyalty points for buying sm brand vol-au-vent
    35 loyalty points for buying sm brand coconut milk
    90 loyalty points for buying over €25
    179 loyalty points for buying sm brand bio fresh fruit juice 250ml (making the product free)
    60 loyalty points for buying €6 of dairy
    85 loyalty points for buying Dan1o vanilla yoghurt 450ml
