    Whoopsies were good, sorry no pics, I just wanted to get it all packed away.

    Lots of penny bargains including 5 bags of potatoes, 2 pots of Bombay pots, carrots and peas with minted butter, beetroot, salad tomatoes, organic houmous, and couple of fruit pots 2p each, and some salad bowls 3p, ham and egg and goats cheese.

    Got some meat too, burgers, mince, chicken all about 75% off happy with that.

    I missed the first lot of fruit and veg so thought I had missed my chance.

    I do find you can't always rely on what you see on the shelves in our store, they seem to bring out more than they take out the back to reduce. I think if there is a lot of one thing it gets taken straight out the back first. Not sure how they work it.

    Good morning.

    Mrsmac its that time again. I was wondering if you knew any superduper offers on Coco Madmoiselle? B@@Ts have 100mls for 95, that's got 10 off at the moment but on 18th may there's 10 worth of points but surely by then they will have removed the offer so it would be better to buy it now.
    So after all my ramblings I wondered if you knew a better offer.
    Also our local does not stock it but I could order it o line with tcb.

    Morning paw sniffers,

    Apologies for dipping in and out

    Work is

    Kitchen is

    House is in chaos as one job leads to another

    Life is busy

    I long for normality to return.

    The kitchen fitter is now on holiday....right in the middle of the work which should have been finished One delay after another has had a knock on effect. The latest is a bent oven from AO which of course we didn't check when it arrived. It sat in the box in the garage until the minute we needed it. Opened it to find the top of it crushed lesson learnt.

    AO have been great as were John Lewis with the cracked sink so that's positive.

    So I haven't much of a clue what's happening with everyone but hope birthdays are being enjoyed and everyone is tucking into their mullers

    Catch you later peeps. I have a honker on the drive

    If its the usual 10 worth of points for every 50 spent then you would be better waiting as it would be 85.

    My last really good one was using a card with 100 which had been 15% off then 20 of points on 100 spend

    Do you have family that work in bigger industries that get discounts on cards Mine was from my days with Mcd's

    Thank you, I was thinking it would be the one lot of 10 points but you could be right, my sister works for the nos and I have a feeling they get a percentage off. The only problem there would be the points would be on her card but that woukdnt really matter. Ill go and research now, thank you

    You need to buy at least 8 different items that show on the APG Picasso (that includes n/a's so you have 10 items showing)

    Only 1 of your items need to be "comparable" to get an APG

    I have caught up now. Thanks Pepper and Dora too. (I, too, have read your name as Pandora Skids and it took a while looking at the OP!!!8217;s comments before I clocked what it really is!!)

    Bother! Just realised I didn't get to A yesterday and have a quite large apg that has now expired as a result .

    I really do need to pay closer attention to dates .

    A bad start to the day!

    Thanks Dora, I found a little A that stocks the cb but the shelf was empty, I'm passing today and hope they've restocked.

    Di, it's bank holiday again soon and the shops normally do offers if you can wait!
    Wasn't it you who was looking for this last year?

    Morning peeps.
