    In the absence of any ground coffee offers, I have had to resort to an approved food order at 1.99 a pack, various ones from Taylors Harrogate to Caf! direct but there was on only 1 or 2 left of each.

    And after I ordered I noticed they had 500ml bottles of coke 3 for 1.20, I am sure it wasn't there before. Might be worth a look Izzy?

    I ordered 12 cans of Ubuntu cola 25p each as they have no artificial sweeteners, I know they won't be quite the same as Pepsi/Coke but at least a bit of support for fairtrade I hope.

    Huge kilo tubs of peanut butter for 3.99 the Pip and Nut make that doesn't include any nasties, ie palm oil or sugar. And the best bit it's still in date until jan 2019.

    Oh and approved food has free delivery code on their website if you spend 55, it shows at the checkout stage, not sure if it was automatically applied so I added the code to be on the safe side and discount showed on payment page.

    Not very MSE to pay out that much but I have got a few bargains, some sage and onion stuffing mix 6 for 99p, last time I got the unidentified stuffing it was Sainsbobs own and just as good as Paxo.

    Think Approved Food need to pay me a marketing fee.

    Looks good price if you buy in bulk 1.99 or less is my bench mark for approx. 227g bag. I've not been to Home Bargains in a while sometimes it's decent price there for Percol.

    That's what we are about isn't it cheap expensive stuff.

    You should see my lounge at the moment, I have had a big sort out. Going to do a car boot again. All new stuff. And I've not got rid of a single shampoo or conditioner and still filled 4 big boxes. I have gone through my hair dyes and getting rid of about 20. DD was trying to work out whether I still had a lifetimes worth and asked me at what age I would stop dyeing my hair.

    Think everyone is going to come in this evening and think there has been a big glitch on with amount of posts to catch up on.

    And then they will realise it was just me waffling all day...
