    Spent 28p on rtc sandwich at Co-op, got a 50p moc for frozen.


    Co-op Mag:

    50p mocs for Aunt Bessies Roasts 700g/1.4kg and Pukka Pies (Chicken & Leek, and Steak & Porter Ale )

    I once had a steak and porter ale, 50p rtc, was very nice.

    December Dinner Deal

    7 items for 10:


    Turkey Breast Joint with stuffing balls

    Co op Garden Peas

    Co op Button Sprouts

    Aunt Bessies Honey Glazed Parsnips

    McCains Roasts

    Aunt Bessies 12 golden Yorkshires - currently these look like they are in a '15 for 12' pack

    Walls Mint Vienetta

    Did we find out if One Stop Shops are included in the Amex promotion?

    Otherwise we'll just have to wait until someone has a chance to try it. Last year I got loo rolls which were a good deal even without the small shop promotion. Someone posted about them on here and I was very grateful.

    Right. I've caught up now and am going to bed. Night everyone.

    Often means that Amazon was cheaper (Or worked out cheaper for them because they had prime for free delivery)! Did you check Amazon first?

    Edit - sorry that!!!8217;s not very helpful, can probably tell you more specifically tomorrow when I can remember what excel looks like, but by then I expect someone who actually knows stuff will reply

    Wonder if anyone knows how much the 500ml Disarrono is in their stores

    Remember the 3.50 back on COS

    Hooch drinks too

    I cannot see it.... what is our TM telling us?

    Originally posted by Sunshinemummy
    Normally it's people asking what Savvy is telling us, as he often posts confused posts (posts that confuse other people anyway) that no-one understands.

    (That's because I am trying to be 100% accurate all the time - an underachievable I know, but it's how I think. If there is something that's not technically true, most people would still say it as, in the scheme of things, the technical incorrectness is largely irrelevant and can be ignored - the gist, that people get, is correct. With me however, I have to reword it, or word it in the first place, so that it is completely technically correct, including all caveats, which just lengthens posts and people can't see the gist or understand what I am going on about. However, all the information is there (indeed, having *all* of it there is part of the very problem - people don't need all, they just need the general idea, which works perfectly well in nearly all situations) and, probably like this post now, I understand it all as I see everything and know all the detail. Sort of. My get-out clause at the end.

    "Why don't you just post the information people need, rather than everything?" people might ask. The problem is that I don't know what people need and what they don't - using the word "need" will lead to hours of discussion - and I have difficulty identifying what is relevant and what is not, so, you just get everything! The problem is that what is "relevant" to one person is "irrelevant" to another and I suppose all pieces of information, however trivial in some instances or in most places, have their own relevance in their own context. Then, of course, it's a problem of context and me being, at least in theory, context-blind. Or most people seem intuitively to know context, whereas I have to reach it by an indirect way (or, rather, for me, a direct way as it's the way I always do it) of taking time to think about it academically. Then again, academic thought of what the context might be may be well in theory but does not translate to being able to do it, without any delay at all, in practice - which is probably why I don't hold conversations in RL in the usual way - and lack of body language to identify cues etc.)

    You think.

    I think, just like me, the moment you think you've finished, something else comes along. I find that missing sheet that I forgot I took from M. Thank you for doing this task.

    I hope I am not finding more - I just keep giving myself and probably you more to do - however I am thinking about the VO5 products, those that are mainly 4 individual in A? Are they still on the 3 for 2? I notice they are not on the list - are they missing or am I now out of date and they're no longer in the offer? I have them vs M at 2 for 6 but, if they are still in the A offer, it seems to me many of them ought to be on the list against S as well as they are now 3 there.

    I notice the OS shower gels are now said to be no longer on 3 for 2 and that that was reported today. I am trying to catch up right now and find out where this is from. Is this just from me earlier (which was just looking at my unreliable SELs in my A) or is it from someone else now? If it is from someone else now, then I will remove them entirely from the M list. I am just trying to catch up and answer this question myself, whilst I am posting this as well.

    I'd mess it up for sure....Be over 20 for sure.....I needed wash capsules so nothing lost really......Yoghurts and soups still working fine....

    Going to try the sweeties and candles tomorrow against morries...They should work out at 1:60 each instead of 6

    I don't need them but I need a couple of raffle prizes to donate...
    Originally posted by marmitelovemehateme
    Candles?!?

    Which candles are these against M?
    I have no glitchy candles on my M list. I thought I was finished - now I have to more to do. Actually I didn't think I was finished - I am still part way through - but you get what I mean: this now added onto the end! So, when I am finished (with my info. from M), I am still not finished!!

    As for the sweeties, I have sort of caught up - they were already on there but I have changed the list from "need to find a trigger" to there being a trigger (or actually being at least two) but, helpfully, I don't tell you what the actual triggers are on there. (My excuse is that I may, but to be honest it's a lot of repetition and also changing information about yet again if the triggers come and then they go - anyway the information is well-known on the most recent parts of the thread and also there is a reason for not posting the triggers on the list itself as I don't want someone from the stores themselves just to be able to go to my list and say... aha, they're using that as a trigger, let's fix it.) However () I still have yet more to do, as I am yet to add Curly Wurly bars, that are now in the queue waiting for them to be added after I have added all of what I am already adding. So, I started off with just updating the info. from my sheets. Now, I have the info. from my sheets, then the Curly Wurly, then and now the candles, and then sorting the OS if they are still on or are off and dealing with the VO5s and whether they need to be deleted. Just when I thought I only had my M information itself...!

    I will update it all eventually - I hope this explains why everything isn't immediately updated right now straight away!)

    Well 8 draws, and 2 x 3 M&S vouchers.

    Amazon....Can you not put 'add on' into the search bar, then select Amazon Prime items, then in price order?
    Edit: yes, you can.
