    Been & bought the 2.25 Chickens in Ts & found the ones weighting just over 2kgs still scanned at 2.25

    Also they have Hearty Food Company (dry) spaghetti at 20p

    And they also have boxes of 300 (240 + 60) PG tips for 4 on a separate shelf from the teabags. I approached an elderly lady perusing the tea aisle & was going to buy the 240 for 5.99, & showed her the offer. Luckily she didn't think me mad or how dare you & bought 3 boxes

    Dropped in on That Sister & admired her man bun hair line - We spent time trying to half a MST sachet as she has to reduce her intake - we were like a couple of druggies with our cards & lines

    Good on that old lady and good on you for pointing it out. It's strange how many people do think we are mad when we point such things out. I understand that some people/friends can't be @rsed with glitch shopping, but a straight forward money saving like this still sometimes gets people suspicious!

    Check your receipt!
    B@gger, bum, poo, !!!! and @rseholes!!

    Been to A's, 3 separate shops in one trolley, doing my counting as I go to checkout, suddenly directed to one with no queue.
    Nice SA, said I have 3 shops, no bother.

    Used APG for second shop and now when I've looked at it the APG was voided
    Question now is do I get on to them Or take one for the team (4.80)and keep under the radar? I let her keep the receipt as I generally think that looks less suspicious.
