    I have braved the rain this morning to do the research

    I also had a look in the cafe to see what the dearest hot drink was but its only 3 - I know in Nerooos adding syrup adds 50p but there does not seem to be this option. Ive got 20% off hot drinks on my sparks card and hot drink vouchers to use ...

    We always used to have tea and a sticky bun and it took the full cost off both leaving about 20p to pay - this is going back a couple of years ago.
    Then they changed it so that only the true cost of your hot drink was taken off - hence why we have medium luxury hot chocolate now (no sticky bun) which is 2.70 so it leaves 5p to pay.

I treated a friend a few months ago & we both had tea & teacakes & I was surprised how much I had to pay.

    I really don't like doing M targeted shops.

    I know we can only use MSM as a guideline but 1.90 for Bertolli?

    Really?

    Bumped into the lovely elaine today.....we were both drooling over pallets of oranges that were due to be reduced.....but it never happened

    Wish you could have all seen us at the till, swapping APG's so each of us only had pennies to pay

    How is everyone?

    Has it been a good day?

    I've had a very productive Sunday and feel really organised going into the week ahead
