    Oh no. Has any of the staff seen you do you know?

    I wonder if they have spotted us and think it!!!8217;s something dodgy.

    Tiny, well done on your haul. Nothing like that in my store, but happy with my few bits

    I have had an accident with my car. I was just testing my hand brake was on and I have no idea what I done but the car rolled down the hill and into the neighbors porch about 50 yards away I was dangling along but no one was injured expect me as badly bruised and the car is now immobile.

    Neighbour was lovely and came over and made me a cuppa She is the same as me its only a car and building and both will be covered by my insurance

    Hello, happy new year! For those that may remember me I moved 2 years ago and stopped posting as I wasn't getting out so much with my shopping buddy.
    I must mention I haven't had t buy any cleaning /soap capsules/shampoo/shower gel products since moving, and probably have enough for next 2 years at least.
    I still keep my finger in by doing reduction shops, which have proved to save even more money and I have 3 freezers now!
    Moved on and up lol
    Had to come on today to say went to Asda today and bought the Muller's, 12 for 3.
    The old ones are the best 3.02 APG. Compared to Tesco at 50p each.
    Hope this isn't old news, but twice told better than never.

There is a piece today saying about people going on sick... if only they knew that for the majority it is not a choice. It is definitely the most stressful, unappreciated and misunderstood job (and crappy paid).

    So I have added an NW and coop visa to my droid.
    Did the nw first - 10x prize draws.
    Then the coop 4x coke, 3 m&s 2x5 m&s, 10 dining card, 8 wins from 10.

    Is it possible some card issuers have paid for more prizes than others?

    Hi Everybody,

    I tried the Simple wipes today this is the results from the APG.


    3x Simple Regeneration Age Resisting Cleansing Wipes (25pk) 13.05 ( A) 6.00 (M)

    The shelf in Sada said the wipes were on 3 for 2. However, the multi offer did not come off so I went to customer services and they refund the amount for one of the wipes.

    Hope this helps somebody. I am putting together a hamper of simple items as presents so this is great thank you for posting.

    Hi Elite I drove home from visting my friends late on Monday night, getting home about 2am. Got to bed around 4 and slept till 4.30pm, then had to rush up and get out as needed to take some extra food for Berry to Joy where they board. Got that done and then nipped into M getting 10 small and 10 large cans of beans plus a 50 Amazon gift card. Of course, no bonus points for the beans, just for the gift card I am going to ring them about it though as still showing online

    I did raise a glass of Pepsi Max to our Sal earlier

    Mrs Mac, that must have been quite a shock

    Going to stay up all night now as I have to ring hospital at 6.30 to check bed is still available and then leave as need to report in at 7.30am

    Ending today, Pampers 10 each or 2 for 18.00.

    Not a great saving but should all compare to Tesco offer 2 for 18.00, making them 7.10 a pack.

    Asda Baby and Toddler event due soon so maybe some better deals on nappies and baby wipes to look out for.

    Last year it started 17th January on line and 21st in store.
