    Nothing mega exciting!

    There were a few reduced wines on an end aisle , mostly expensive ones.
    Last week I bought just one bottle of Lambrusco Bianco light only 4% but a nice summer drink, liked it so thought I'd get more if they still had it. Today reduced to 2.20 then 55p discount.

    So maybe all 75cl bottles are 25% off regardless of price?

    Thanks for the salsa/powder info, just got 4 worth of assorted dressings and spices.

    Also 20p.
    Kettle Crisps, discoveries, Yorkshire wensleydale & Cox apple chutney flavour! 130g bag.
    Only 3 bags left I my store so cleared the shelf.

    Can confirm that conditional spends can be used on wine as well.

    Plus they were only little bottles, didn't see wraps though.

    I love managing to get the 20p bits when they come up in Sainsbobs. There was about 16 OEP zesty salsas so I had half of them.

    Got 5 of each of the latin America mixes, but by the time I give both DDs some of each there will be couple of each left for us here.

    Last year must have been about the same time I got loads of different wraps which we were eating for ages. Shame I went off on a M&S beer hunt yesterday instead.

    One of my local SD's is closing to become a Savers on Saturday.

    Anyone know if they will reduce the SD branded stuff or will it just get sent to other stores?

    The shelves were just starting to look empty of their own brand today, nothing was reduced except the normal bargains I have been finding elsewhere.

    Argoose went me an email just after 4 and I managed to open it on time - this will be my 4th attempt

    I plumped for a brown water boiling unit - we have a fancy kettle which gives blue disco lights in the dark but some Herbert has broken the lid attachment so before long it would have needed to be replaced.

    It is not a massive TV, deep sigh but I am not sure exactly what we would have done with a massive TV but I can use a brown water boiling unit

    On the plus side when I did my Sainsburys shop I collected a stray conditional spend outside which gave me an extra 2 off and the 6 conditional spend from the mailing also worked so 8 off the wine shop

    Sainsburys have sent me another set of conditional spends but for 50 shops this time instead of 40 - wondering if I should get another set of 6 wines as that's 24 so half of the spend ...

    Also got RTC Sainsburys beef casserole mixes for 20p for the winter stews

    Also in sainsburys today at the bakery counter we were pondering the lack of apricot almond croissant when we spotted on the reduced stand 7 massive cakes - all reduced to 1.24 or 1.44 - one a pink flower one, a couple of doggy ones and a couple of spotty ones. We got a chocolate ganache one for 1.79 reduced down from 7
    OH says it will go nicely with the vanilla carte dor - which coincidentally is on GJ this week and I needed an excuse to go to Mr T tomorrow.

    And some nice wombles outside including one with Buxton water and plums - on GJ but only for Mr T but one did have raspberries on

    I'm really struggling to know what to buy to get the 2.50 Quidco bonus by the end of today. I have toilet rolls coming out of my ears (Wilkies/SD) and Dry Shampoo (SD). I'd like a sturdy clear 1litre bag for cabin luggage liquids but can't seem to find any quidco retailers selling any good ones!!!!

    Also I got the McD app earlier with the free mcmuff but decided a 40 minute round trip sort of defeated the freeness of it.

    Is that one of those constant hot water things? They sound rather useful.

    I see waities have started to love some peeps again, still not me.

    Although I do think I probably updated my preferences properly last week a bit late to receive a mailing this week. Fingers crossed for the next one.
