    If you grease it, it should be okay, but why not pop out to the local shop and just buy some, the cost of the ingredients in a fruit cake is not worth messing about with. (Presuming it is a late baked xmas cake.)

    To delete from where?

    Rather than delete in google photos I add it to a used album. I then remove the same photo from the voucher album. You could archive, just remove from album, or delete it instead.

    Needs to be even numbers against M to end up with same price as S. So, if you are not doing an S comp. shop and having to buy against M instead, it could work out the same if you are working the numbers right. However, why bother with that? You can just buy three with ten correct Mullers and get a Sains. comp with 29p off!

    EDIT: The post above has just reminded me of the crisps. As well as some Sunbites 1.79 vs 1 S, Burton's Fish 'n' Chips - either version in A's offer, or both (but obviously no Sunbites then) - should be 1.65 vs 1 S. Not to worry if you are using both Burton's in one shop and want Sunbites too - if you have another Tomato Ketchup pack, you can simply shop for the Sunbites on a new shop - with 10 Mullers (of the right mix) for a further 29p again. Only need one item vs S now in effect to turn the shop into a new S comp. - usually v.difficult for me due to high prices at S - simply add 10 Mullers (for as long as Christmas Bakery is in stock in your store [EDIT:] ...and, another caveat, shouldn't be too difficult to achieve though, the store has a range of Muller Lights and Rices that are varieties that compare against S).

    Hi all

    I've been lurking as I don't often have anything to say.
    But I felt I need to say a huge thank you to you all as I am now nicely stocked with Xmas gift sets which has been a huge bonus for me at the moment.

    I had a worrying moment in sada last night when my apg wouldn't scan or go through by number, a supervisor was called and scrutinised the apg and the receipt. She then overrode the till and put it through as a manufacturers coupon......giving me back the receipt unmarked.

    The 2nd one lives in the bottom of the oven as a drip tray!
