DD got xmas vouchers and some after xmas telling her about the mywaitrose stopping, all I got was email and I have not changed any of my settings.

    I only discovered this thread by accident. My mom used to collect coupons when I was small roughly 30-35 years ago - we used to get loads as my aunt used to deliver leaflets which normally consisted of money off coupons and there were always plenty of spares.

    Safeway would take anything and when I was in my late teens/early twenties I always had a bundle in my bag just in case I popped in for anything. I even had my favourite till operators who would take loads some would only take a certain amount.

    Sadly very few coupons and you have to buy the product but I still hunt out for bargains. Top bargain this week when I went into my local One Stop was a pork leg joint reduced from 4.50 to 1.35. So far it has fed four as a roast dinner, two as sandwiches and there is probably still enough left for two or three more lots of sandwiches. I do have an electric slicer which makes it go way further than cutting my hand.

    Nice bargain with the pork.

    It's a good reminder that we mustn't underestimate the corner shops/small shops, I often do well at McColl as they reduce fruit and veg to pennies, and bread to 10/15p.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.

    Best have a choc muffin and a Barny Bear bar as a reward for being so good

    TS, I remember the Special K glitch, was in teskies I believe (or was it adsa, im starting to doubt myself now ). Oh, I do miss teskies glitches.

    And I never do a "normal" shop in there so no chance of picking up any misprices for me.

    I wasn't sure if the SpecK was Adsa as the date seemed too "new" for that big glitch. Think you are right...

    Hi, I got a new phone yesterday and was told I can have my old phone unlocked if I want. I know that there is offers like free items on O2 priority and 3 wunto. My question is are they for customers using their network only, which obviously makes sense and if so, could I in theory use my old phone as a pay as you go, buy the relevant sim and get the offers? Thanks in advance x

    Waitrose magazine 2
    newspaper - about 50p

    so you need to spend about 6 ish to get to the tenner
    Have you got any Robinsons squash MOCs - it was 1.50 last week.
    Possibly something you need on GJ? Or maybe something with a TMF offer on?
    Shopimum- a few things free eg primula and botanics drinks and some with a good discount ( pm me if anyone wants a code as I think new people get free Nutella)
    I generally get cat food or cordial

    Poundshop on TCB
    Can someone help me as to what constitutes a 'supermarket' on TCB. I'm thinking of getting the toilet roll from a poundshop (with the 50p cb). Do you think that would be accepted?

    TIA

    Good morning lovely peoples

    Hope everyone is well. I'm sick of the rain - don't know when I'll be able to mow my swamp

    Me this morning:

    Good thought "After my goats milk kefir I"ll have my usual handful of blueberries and fruit"

    Walking towards fruit bowl with coffee in hand

    Naughty thought: "Oh those giant chocolate muffins were opened yesterday, don't want them to go stale, Mmmmmmm! grab one to go with your coffee now"

    Good thought " keep looking ahead at the fruit bowl, keep going"

    Naughty thought: "Oh look, a solitary chocolate Barny Bear is lying on the biscuit tin, that would go really well with your coffee"

    Good thought " keep looking ahead at the fruit bowl, keep going"

    Good thought won - the first of many little Good thought v naughty thoughts battles

Coming back yesterday evening temptation raised its ugly head again but the price had doubled so I went away. Good thoughts pestered me throughout the whole train journey, pointing out that I wasn't hungry and wasn't missing them at all. After that naughty thoughts in A, when I was doing the wine shop, didn't have a chance!

    Was someone saying the Robinson's website wasn't working? It is for me. Perhaps try a different browser?

    Did someone say there is a way to get them totally free please?

    OK, I have a problem.

    We have 200 + DVDs and abput 150 CDs They are currently on a swivel shelf but really need to get rid of that and find a different way of storing them, ideally so we can still see what we have and access them quickly.

    Been looking at the Really Useful 18 litre boxes but would need around 7 and would cost 64 (didn't even look at the postage) from the cheapest source I can find.

    So, does anyone have a better idea please? They will have to go into the spare room.
    What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare

    Yes I got loads of cereal bars and hardly ate any of the "moments" ones even when newer they tasted like cardboard no one liked them. I posted about them last year as was thinking of putting out for the birds but the chocolate ones ended up in the compost as someone kindly posted they were not suitable.

    I wasn't sure if the cereal box was from the same glitch. Not sure if it's clear the BB date is 2014. So yes 5 years ago sounds about right, I think that box was rescued from my mite infestation in what was my bathroom if anyone remembers that.

    Funny that the mites or what ever they were never went for the SpecK wonder if trying to tell me something.

    I think the boxes of Special K were in T, 3 for 2 rather than 3 for 2. I remember losing money on that one as my parents ended up nabbing most of them from me
