    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

    Good morning everyone.

    Well done JTS, keep off those naughty items. Saying that, I finished an easter egg off yesterday, it kept staring at me but I did do body blitz last night, so hopefully burnt it back off

    Morning all, didn't see much in way of reductions yesterday as I wasn't in until the afternoon but I did see lynx signature white can with gold front down to 32p and sanex mens deo down to 47p

    I have been given my own section at work now as I seem to be good at sorting and selling it...........not sure if that's a good thing or not lol I do like to wander. I'm going to flit around with the hand scanner today for a little bit though

    Maybe my SD are not putting the cheap labels out I dunno

    Don't think there is a huge amount RTC in SD at the moment, you can usually see the prices going down over few weeks.

    The balmis I found thanks Sarahskint. I also bought the Nivea stubble gel for 90p as when I checked it's 4.50 in Sainsbury at the moment and that's on offer, and it's over 6 in Boots.

    Having been an avid follower of their reductions over many years it goes quiet some times.

    Hi Ellsey,

    You can order the 02 and Three sim cards for free on their websites. Then just put each one into your phone to register the apps. After that's done you can take the sim cards out and put your normal one in and the apps will continue to work.

    First single I ever bought was Excerpt from a Teenage Opera aka Grocer Jack.

    I was 12 and felt very grown up.

    I hoped I might get a till split but nothing. Nothing through the post since last October I think it was, I know the coupons expired November as thought at the time too early for my xmas shop. 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.

    Really struggling to keep up at the moment but just skimmed the last few days so hope I haven't missed anything bargainous.
    Despite not being given a choice, Rana money arrived in my bank account yesterday. Thank you OP

    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.

    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?
