    Also nipped up to Waitrose as I noticed two freebies on Shopimum and both finishing today or tommorow.
    Our Sainsburys is a 10 mile round treck so I tend to message Waitrose via FB before I set off to see if our little store stocks what I need. Generally its no but today they sent me a link of the 3 types of Botanics it stocks and fortunatley they were the correct ones for shopimum - I scanned the bottles instore to be on the safe side.

    One was the plant milk and the other the little vitamin boost bottles - 6.49 together . So I didnt need to buy anything else to get my total over a tenner - free newspaper, magazine and coffee.

    I also saw the WOW bottles from COS that our huge Sainsburys does not sell so at least I know what I''ve missed out on now.

    Also a sampling lady who was doing taste tests on Innocent flavoured non-milks. The oat one was nice, good for porridge and the hazelnut one good for hot chocolate but the almond one was non descript. These are 1.99 each - we can live in hope of them being at Shopimum freebie.

    In Marks this morning the 90% off rail was very disappointing, not sure why I expected it to be any different.

    In the food hall though I had a look at the ice cream section and they have RTC boxes of belgian choc ice bars, one flavour all gone of course but I found one very battered box of the choc ice with almond pieces for 1.50 - 8 bars, half price

    Also the 5 Italian meal deal is still going - pasta/raviol, sauce pot and either salad or garlic bread.
    On our Android pay list was 5 codes but we were not sure which ones were used up so we forewarned the very patient till girl and she didnt mind inputting each one. she was as thrilled as us when the 4th code turned out to be a valid 3 one Then I found a credit note in my bag for 3.48 so I only had to pay 1p in real money so that really made the till girl happy

    (yes credit notes are real money as well)

    So there is one AP Marks voucher left now and no idea if its a valid one or not ...

    I fact what is full M comp. on this shop? Do those Pringles pick up 1.25 for M (I think they were 1 in T?)? Are the Milkybar and Rolo Desserts full price M? Tuc Crackers 50p each? How are the mini pizzas comparing (if they are)? Also wondering what the Crusty Rolls are doing against M. TIA.
