    Used my '50p off any Fresh Chicken Products' this morning.

    SA looked at my mini shop and at the coupon and said 'But have you actually bought any chicken?'

    'Nope, just chicken products,' I said, pointing to the box of eggs.

    Coupon accepted.

    Not yet. The space they currently occupy is going to be wiped out by a bird cage, the space they occupied before has been wiped out by various other things. If necessary the unit they are in can be moved to the spare room, but not ideal as no real position for it there.

    The ideal would be extremely cheap Really Useful Boxes in the 18 litre version, but they would have to be really cheap as I have worked out at the moment I would have to spend 63 on them. I am going to work out how many I could get in some under bed boxes I have found when I get chance. Problem is I want them all accessible and easy to view, so only one layer per box, mainly so grandkids can find them if necessary, and really have to accommodate quite a few console games too. Whatever I do it is going to hurt the pocket

    Thank you - I had read them too and couldn't see qnything, so wondered if I had missed it mentioned somewhere else during sign up.

    If all else fails we can pay with AP vouchers . I still haven't planned out how I am going to use all my vouchers - Mands expire at the end of this month .

    See that's how your mind works.

    I see charcoal and think of BBQs and hot summer nights

    Enterprise, could you not just get a load of shoe boxes and use them under the bed?

    Hello
    I had a womble yesterday where the receipt shows a multi buy savin g toiletries 3F2, but the items all show full price on the Asda price guarantee comparison


    2x Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner For Dry,Really Thirsty Hair (90ml) 4.40 3.00
    1x Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo For Dry,Really Thirsty Hair (90ml) 2.20 1.50

    I have looked online and these are the travel toiletries which are 3 for 2 in store. If you click on the aeroplane you can see all the other items in the offer. May be useful as fillers if any are cheaper elsewhere?

    Thank you all for posting all these bargains online, very helpful x

    I ordered that laptop from Wish last night, was having a quick look at the thread on my new phone. My son uses Wish, just means waiting a bit longer. Will be interesting to see what happens, be interesting if the laptop turns up and they try to charge tax, not sure if that will happen, they are in the US and Holland as far as I can see. But we only paid 2 for it technically.

    I love being in the house during the day, all the con calls you get. First one just told me to get lost after I was answering questions, but just using the words yes and no (as he instructed me to do). Then I got another call from somewhere else less that 2 mins later, and she put the phone down after I was asking her what she was wearing as she was giving me strange stirrings deep within. Do these people not have any fun any more?

    For zippy and DM when they're fatigued

    If this is 3 for 2, should compare v Sains at 6.

    So pay 20, APG 13.80, 6.20 for 3. Still seems expensive

    Blimey, just had another call. I could not handle this every day. So one wanting to ask house hold questions, one saying there was issues with my virgin router, and one saying there was problems with my BT router.
    There should be some way the powers above can stop these calls to stop the vunerable getting scammed.
    I heard of a friend of a friend getting conned the other day. They said they were from BT, and had to give her a refund. Now this person is usually okay with these cons, but the person convinced her that they already had her bank card details, but just needed to confirm them. They told her the first 4 digits on her card (well obviously, all visa's mastercards, etc start with the same 4 digits) but it caught her out and she gave them her details. Luckily they realised and called the bank straight away, but it is a concern how many people daily must be getting ripped off/conned.
