    11+Elite One stop shop for the very best of MSE 24th Apr 12 at 7:05 AM


    New overflow thread for 11+ers

    THE FOLLOWING IS COPIED FROM ORIGINAL FIRST POST ON PREVIOUS THREAD

    This is yet another bargain/glitch/DTD/JTD/misprice thread!

    We know it's in the 'Gone But Not Forgotten' section!

    We know there are at least 2 other threads in which we could post!

    Yes, we do talk a lot!

    No, not all of what we say is Tesco related or even of interest to many others but this is the way this thread has formed.

    Many of us want to discuss the various deals to be had but this was not appreciated on the main Grabbit forum. As such, we now use this thread to talk about anything from how to cook a baked potato to how to get 1p or 4p items through self-scan as quickly as possible. We also discuss ex-husbands, kids and animals. If you have a medical problem we'll nag you until you go to the Doctor. If you're not feeling well we'll provide support, a wee hot drink and whatever chocolate is currently glitching to cheer you up.

    And finally, yes we know that some people try to obscure the store names but this works both ways. It might make it difficult for those who don't have the time to sit here and natter all day but it also makes it difficult for staff/managers to quickly identify any issues at their store.

    We do try to remember to post new deals in bold. We don't like arguing so we're not going to take umbrage if one or two deals slip through.

    Now sit back, relax and feel free to join in. We don't bite (unless you ask nicely), we will help wherever possible and you don't have to post new deals just to feel like part of the group.

    Please put all your finds in bold with LAST 4 DIGITS OF barcode and photo if possible so we can chat & still speed read for bargains.

    Common abbreviations:

    SEL: Shelf Edge Label
    DTD: Double the Difference
    JTD: Just the Difference
    RTC: Reduced to Clear
    OOD: Out Of Date
    CC: Clubcard or Credit Card, depends on context
    HTH: Hope That Helps
    SA: Sales Assistant
    CS: Customer Services
    DD: Darling Daughter
    DS: Darling Son
    OH: Other Half
    DH: Darling Husband
    TIA: Thanks In Anticipation
    GBP: Great Britain Pound (some people cant get the sign to work, or have keyboards set up in "bilingual" mode)
    Trout: is the expression used by people on here for cashiers of a certain age, usually female, that are miserable for the sake of being miserable, unhappy in their work, jealous of people with mocs and do their level best to prevent anyone using coupons...try your very best to avoid them at the checkouts.....

    evening all

    just a quick question ive had a look online but dont really know what to search for,
    my sons cot mattress is like a foam type material and over last couple days its sunken right in in the middle bit but i dont know why
    is there anything i can do to make it go back to normal or do i need to get a new one?

    Also, Superdrug has johnsons wetwipes 10p a pack
    only had one on clearance shelf and packaging was odler style than the rest of them so dont know if any other stores will have any of them,
    You can't make someone love you. All you can do is
    stalk them & hope they panic & give in

    Good evening everyone - hope you have all had a fab Saturday - all the talk of threading had tears running down my face - for me it is mega painful



    This was mentioned this morning on coupon thread I printed the pdf 3 times one for each of us but Boots would not accept - there is no barcode for them to scan - the till supervisor went to discuss with the manager and they ended up ringing up somewhere to get advice kept us waiting for over 10 minutes the store we went to was on the list but they knew nothing of it - hope if you go you have better luck than us

    Hello all!

    I had to do extreme freezer tetris today when I got back with 8 boxes of chocabloks and 3 mccain rustic chips and had to get some half price Haagen Dazs too...forgot the freezer was nearly full lol! Out went a few old whoopsied loaves that had been there since I got the freezer probably and my chocabloks are safe. They are SOOOO nice aren't they,much nicer than Magnums I think.

    I also had a womble moment today when I had to pull one out from between the trollies by the entrance.Only trouble was, the RAC man that stands by the door trying to flog breakdown cover was gawping right at me.I smiled at him and walked off round the corner for more wombling. When I came back a few minutes later he was talking to a trolley man and pointing and laughing at me! The shame!

    And wombling moment number two, a cautionary tale - be VERY careful when wombling in your local T's on a Saturday afternoon, the odds of bumping into someone you know are far too high...I nearly crashed into a work colleague today as I was too busy looking at the floor for wombles, a minute later and he would have seen me pick one up...noooo!

    Learn from the past, enjoy and appreciate the present and work to make your future the best it can possibly be

    And get lots of glitches!

    Evening all

    Been debating whether to do a big T's round trip for a few days now, there's a couple of things I want using the price flop coupons but I was hoping for a global glitch to justify the petrolWishful thinking! Like celebrate I'm not too enthusiastic about visiting my local Though I haven't received my cancellation email for the suitcase so fingers crossed I'll be picking that up in there on Monday

    Well I decided not to bother, but my local WHS is closed Sunday so incase I don't do the Bristol circuit tomorrow, thought I'd pop down and use up the rest of my short dated giftcards on stamps. The manager full on hates meThe SA had to call for some more books of stamps and manager brought them down, saw it was me...and if looks could kill! But I got my stamps (I haven't bought tonnes, 84 2nd class and 36 1st class)

    Got into M's just as they were reducing all the dry/grocery items further
    80 pk small food bags = 39p
    25m cling film = 39p
    750g Kelloggs bran flakes = 1.09
    and the best bargain, 8 large bags of crisps eg: Sensations, Phileas Fogg (DTD nostaliga) and Walkers Extra Crunchy for 5p each as dated today

    Didn't bother with A's or T's, just came back and walked the doggies

    right working forwards catching up today

    fudge cake take my hat of to you, you managed THIS post with unbearable toothache??
    hope you are a bit better today, i would go for it with the amoxil but what are you going to do when you run out, have you got a follow up appointment? you sould be able to get some from the emergency/out of hours dental service-most areas have one
    ps you'll need your inr checking in a week when you've finished the antibiotics x
    Originally posted by celebrate
    Bless you, thanks celebrate

    It's not too bad at the moment, but it tends to kick in about now No I haven't bee to see the dentist/doc yet. I'm hoping I can get by just using these. If not Mum's got a 5 day course of Amoxil that our dentist prescribed a couple of months ago in the event her tooth flared up again. Needless to say it didn't so they're there as a back up

    I've actually got very healthy teeth So I'm on a 12 month recall, so not due for my check til August but that means that I can bring it forward if needs be. I know what the outcome will be which is why I don't want to go If it was just that I had toothache and it was a case of saving the tooth I'd go straight away! Thank you so much for the advice about out of hours dental services and Amoxicillin

    Re: INR/Warfarin...I'm still on weekly INR's since December and my flare up with Pneumonia For months before it was stable but a reaction to Clarithromycin sent it up to over 12 Ever since it's been pretty unstable so it's absolutely no problem getting it done next week, already booked in!

    and also your description and explanation regarding Heparin was very clear Thank you darkvelv for your suggestions but as celebrate explained, being on warfarin means the use of anti-inflammatory drugs is particularly risky and definitely not advised in the long term. For this reason pain relief is a VERY sore subject for me (no pun intended!) Paracetamol does nothing, I'm allergic to Codeine and the one and only painkiller that helps is Ibuprofen (anti-inflammatory) So for my migraines I do use Ibuprofen but only very sparingly, all my other pains I just grin and bear It's difficult but you just get used to it

    Oh yes....got to make it look nice.

    I bent over a couple of years ago and my husband swore it was Bin Laden hiding under my nightie
