    I am now up to date with my paperwork. All receipts uploaded for cashback, my final APGs sorted ready to spend and my plans for today ready. I am also going on a T mag hunt. Should I have another cuppa before I attack the bathrooms?


    Just read the double up T&C's - i had not realised they have put the vouchers up to 50 this year which is good. I have a good amount to spend this year and plan to get a lot of xmas pressies, so need to be organised and early to get the right sizes.

    Good morning all, in the time it took for me to catch up it's gone from grey out front and bright out back to grey all over And it has literally just started raining again! Very hard too. Didn't get below 17 degrees here overnight

    Hope this rain doesn't last long, need to get out before ds comes, supposedly popping in to print something off, really haven't got the time because that normally means he will be hanging around for a couple of hours. I do not have that couple of hours today, I have the stock room and the other spare bedroom to sort out today

    Am I the only one that sits on a bench outside Ts and tears the coupons out, and dumps the mags in their bins? Mind you, I do have to walk home.

    My local Mr T has the mags. I picked up 3 on Wednesday and Mr AJ got 3 yesterday. I don't like the baked crisps but ds4 does. He is no further on finding a new flat the two of them haven't made much of an effort saving up. I can see they will be still be here at Chris the end of the year.

    Scamps , did you say your wife was paid this money? Why isn't she the one they are after for repayment? It seems so wrong.

    A wee hint for newbies about Tosser mag coupons. Ones you you think are useless, KEEP THEM until expiry. Tosser sometimes overlap price reductions and the coupons. So a coupon that seems uselss might become useful before they expire, so keep them. Also in the past some have scanned for higher amounts or scan for other products too.

    Without APG, maybe get into coupons and competitions.

    Tosser mag fro crisps


    You could possibly sell each on 50p per or even 2 for 1.50

    Wish my Tossers sold the prince's, would save visiting another store and I could get 2 in 1 shop.
