    Hello everyone. I joined a while back but haven't posted in ages! I have been dipping in and out but have been very busy with moving house and looking after the kids. Any way with my youngest now 7 months I'm starting to think about returning to work and if there is any way I can stay at home for a little longer! So really really need to get better at bargain hunting. Hope I can stay around more now and contribute a bit more :-)

    From an email this morning from Closer magazine - I cant see what the price is or the edition or how long you have to use, probably a week or so but it has a Greggs flash on the front.

    A voucher for a free hot drink and a donut from Greggs

    Although the AP people are drowning in Greggs 3 and 5 vouchers and by now loath the place

    Might be of use if you have a conditional spend to use and you don't have enough shopping or you need to top up your Waitrose or Booths shop to get a free newspaper/magazine/magazine etc. Or you have a stray low value wombled APG to use up.
    Possibly you can use Boots points to buy magazines???

Despite doing a few hours work this morning i am bored already...bu i know it will be hard to adjust from silly hours to a life....... The hen do has evolved..... significantly. I have 12 tjings that buzz packed in my suitcase omg!

    Suggestions please.

    I am getting quotes for annual travel insurance can anyone suggests any specialist travel insurance companies they use?

    We have worldwide travel insurance as part of our Nationwide Flexplus packaged account but because of OHs medical conditions we have to pay for the upgrade - 144 a year - this is on top of the 13 a month the package costs us so 156 plus 140 a year total 300.

    The Flexplus package now only covers travel insurance, mobile phone insurance and breakdown/recovery - the later I can get from Groupon if I can remember the name of the company ...

    So far I've rung Staysure who have quoted me 162 (although it does not cover dodgy places USA, Canada, Caribbean, Bermuda, Mexico, Thailand, China & Hong Kong which we are never likely to get to anyway)
    We are only booked up until the end of this year so this might be the final year of the long trips away anyway ...

    Has anyone else had an email this morning from our pale friends north of the border about a product delivery?

    The item is being sent out today but it didn't ring any bells so I checked back on any emails I've had from them - I've not applied for anything this week, thinking that trials would be week or 2 week ones so they might get missed with Easter coming up ... I've been waiting for month or longer trails.

    When I looked this item up the only survey that matched the description was from last August ...
