    Quite balmy here, 12.5 degrees, they are saying it is the warmest day of the year so far.

    My Co-op had 32g Flakes rtc 19p from 75p (who pays 75p for a single Flake?) so I got a few, handy for the kids, plenty there so I suspect they might be being reduced due to a new weight coming in - I shouldn't be so sceptical really, it doesn't suit my normal cheery self... Got a moc for 50p off pies, so that's nice.

    you have the Boots app?
    Are you signed up to the parenting club for your mythical child? And also are you signed up as an over 60 for extra points?
    Parenting club send out paper mailings but otherwise everything elses on the app. Its a good idea to screenshot any offers you are using incase of problems - they disappear after thry have been used.

    I bought 2 lots of the Monopole champagne - one set in a box and one set just in the bottle - only one worked - not sure which one as they have the same barcode.

    Has anyone else got this one and can confirm which one works? Thanks

    Could be cheeeeeper to buy the Tesco chickens and bone them, with the advantage of some thighs as well.
    Breasts probably large enough to cut into two. Got a couple just over 2 kg yesterday.

    To be honest I was surprised that the points even showed on my receipt as I find shoes app a bit hit and miss.

    Hi I brought 3 sets all boxed but 1 said not enough items so I took those back, when I returned them the CS lady had to use the barcode on the bottle not the box also they seem to have 2 barcodes on the labels. The working receipt show bc ends 381l.

    Actually in the set I returned 1 bottle was unboxed, clear as mud but I think the unboxed don't work

    I hope that helps
