    Are the new Walkers sharing packs (175g each) £1.50 each or are they on the 2 for £2.00 in A?

    They are all available in M at £1 each (I think, I think I finally have all four of them now). However, () they are new products so I am not sure how quickly the collectors would pick them up. (I suspect N/A for a few weeks - and bloomin Ocados has them at £1 (sigh).)

    IVe always wished I could bake, I'm a good cook (so I like to think) but just can't bake. i have tried, even got the baking tins and stuff, lots of books but it's always awful. Baking is a talent I reckon!!

    I can bake and cook most things but NOT rice, its always a solid lump, so Uncle Ben cooks it for me

    Probably mentioned already, but the Cadbury Choc buttons from HB are also in different packs to Golden Sunrise - they are plain packaged as Appleby & Baker in maroon packaging with a sweet shop image on the front.

    Lango, you seem like you are in the know
    tbh i have messed my account up if i claim a c and c and says you can only claim say 1/2 of it can i claim the other half next month or is it gone?

    Instore apg is different as you can resubmit the receipt next month.

    As long as you have claimed your £100 this month, then you could preload your account up to £100 of sharpies for next month too (buy now while glitching, claim next month). However, remember that as you place a new order, one of the older ones disappears as it only retains the three most recent shops - so you would need to factor in spending your vouchers somehow before they expire then leaving your 2/3 APGs for next month. You also need to leave room for any apg generated by your "normal" shop when you spend your vouchers.

    afternoon all - Reading back I was very impressed as to how motivated and determined everyone is, not only to plough onwards with the normal domestic drudgery but also to take it a step further and to start tackling more of the unspeakable depths

    I also had the £1 email from ebay The trouble is I like to take my photos in the garden as it shows colours better but needless to say we have lost this mornings sunshine and the w ind and rain is back There must be something I can list though. I know the obvious answer is to list with just one photo and then add more in the week when the rain stops but I think I am going to run out of week ...
    Mind you I dont think any of last weeks listings are going to sell tonight if I just relist them will that count for the £1 offer ????

    In the meantime we went recycling this morning - I thought it better to do this sooner rather than later incase OH decided to reclaim anything from his heaps So thats at least one job done if we don't get to Sainsbobs this week
    His corner of the living room remains an oasis of cleanliness but he did try it on last night by dumping some of his railway mags onto the magazine pile. These are going to be relocated into his work bag tonight The mag pile is minimal so I don't know why he though I would not notice it doubling in size

    Regarding paperwork I thought I'd just about done. The file boxes are very jammed full though so I am thinking that I need to empty them out and see if anything can be disposed of, filing new paperwork is getting problematic. Everything in them is very recent, less than 5 years old so what can be removed will be minimal.
    I used to have cardboard concertina files, totally unfit for the job but I walked into a tiny WHSmiths one day and there were 2 lightly battered metal box files reduced on a 241 offer - very much right place, right time

    And in other news we were in Waitrose this morning and the tills were spitting out conditional spends £6 wys £30 with about 2 weeks expiry on them so I got 2 of them

    So it might be worth doing a small purchase first to see if you get one before tackling a big list.

    As its totally unlikely that I would be spending £30 I went in search of people in Waitrose with trolley loads but mostly people seemed to be doing basket shops. I managed to find one couple about to do through SS and one lady in the biscuit section with big enough shopping loads so I passed the conditional spends along - my random good deed for the day done

    I don't think they are in multi instore - £1.95 per pack in A . The best price for these at the moment is Jack F where they are 2 for £1.50 (or 2 for £1 for BBQ Rib flavour). They may be a similar discount price in Heron and similar stores.

    They aren't available in our little A any more as they cleared them out.
