    Savvybuyer, do you know if this compares AvM ?


    Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser (125ml)
    Morrisons 4.04 any 3 for 5.00
    ASDA 2.75

    Thanks

    Can anyone look out for the Battered Onion Rings or Breaded Onion Rings (750g frozen bags) to see if either of those compares against M (Sal usually has them on wombles)?

    You never know - they have had things before that I have failed to find even after many stores and I do have this one - maybe they will have it - perhaps a one third chance, I don't know.

    Hello all

    Anyone in Worc A does have Sharpies in stock!

    Mr T wrndon has a section of reduced stuff at the start of seasonal row. Nothing really cheap but they did have value toothpaste at 16p. Grabbed a few for shoe box appeal at Xmas. Still about 20 left.

    ....it's good to know that you are still getting out and about in the garden though.

    You really do amaze me with the receipts that you manage to collect and must be top of the list if there was one.

    He was genuinely disappointed as he thought he would get about 150 but I don't think we were savvy enough to understand what it would have meant back then so what we did not pay in we don't get back Certainly no disagreement from me


    Fortunately we are in a reasonable position just now and with my elite shopping it is fine
