    Izzeyb You are an

    Thanks for trying It may but hopefully may not be the end of another route

    I missed all the coupon stuff and really only got hooked after a long time lurking

    For me the last few months have changed Seldom a womble in our car park , lots fewer items on cashback, coupons in short supply or not taken but we will all survive

    I was really wondering how it has/will hit those who bought in truckloads if that was a main source of income

    Take care on another sunny day

    I also like Lidl, whilst stuff only reduced 30% off original price, they always have the next day's date on them, and some even a few days. I got two carrot cakes before my hols with three days left on them

    Good morning lovely peoples

    Lovely to see fellow nature lovers coming out

    Another beautiful day in store - unless you have to go to Asda

    Can't believe how excited I've become about tonight's game - come on locarr, get your flags out

    Loving my Fitbit I received for my Birthday after getting used to its idiosyncrasies. I mowed the lawn a couple of weeks ago, and was disappointed that it didn't seem to have impacted on my number of steps recorded - even though it was an hour of walking

    However, when I checked my App, I had an exercise event "Outdoor Cycling" which matched the time and duration of my mowing - so it thought I was riding a bike instead

    Just seen Sainsbury's have 25% off 6 or more bottles of wine.

    For those that have Gallo Family White Grenache and White Zinfandel on COS.

    Shows as last day today to claim 1 casnback per bottle, 3 redemptions on each.

    Both of these are 5.35 per bottle in Sainsbury's.

    Buy 3 of each = 6x 5.35
    = 32.10
    Less 25% for buying 6 bottles
    = 24.08

    Then claim 6.00 back on COS ( assuming you haven't screwed the receipt up into a ball and tossed it into the bin on leaving Sainsbury's)

    That makes it 3.02 per bottle
