    No my handbag mission failed curly.

    Mr TM bought me an expensive one for Christmas which I returned Im sick of huge bags where everything gets lost and I spend ages looking for keys, phone etc like an idiot. I decided I needed something a bit more organised.

    So I have my Christmas money to play with But as is usual, when You have money burning a hole in your pocket, you dont see anything you like

    TM you need one of these for your big handbags : https://www.amazon.co.uk/Periea-Handbag-Organiser-12-Compartments/dp/B00ZFIJMNS/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1515843643&sr=8-3&keywords=handbag%2Borganiser&th=1

    They are great for keeping things together in the bottom of handbags and come in different sizes for different bags.

    Not been around much as moved house and trying to get organised but trying to read along with you all.

    Hugs to all who would like one.

    Happy Birthday Di.

    First I had the 'Claim approved here is your postage label' email from Alcatel go missing but their CS resent when I called after a week wondering what was happening and now I have had my old phone disappear in the mail - tracking shows only 'received at post office' then nothing else since 4th Jan . Apparently I can't claim for lost until 15 working days, just spoke to Alcatel and they said call in another week if they still haven't received it and they will think about what to do.

    I feel sorry for whoever pilfered it as I used the box of a much newer phone to send back a pretty busted up Orange San Francisco that must be 8 year sold and worth less than a fiver.

    I now have two others to claim for. I looked in the T&C, there is no mention of the trade in phones needing to be unlocked but I thought I had seen mention of it on here?

    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    Looking for an additional Droid to activate an account for your OH . Pixi 3 price has dropped again. Note no NFC so this cannot be used to play the game, just to activate a new account.

    https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ee-alcatel-one-touch-pixi-3-35-inch-1499-499-10-top-up-argos-collection-2876275

    Now down to 4.99 in Arg0s - in theory 10 top up required, but order online and pay with Fasttrack collection and only pay 4.99.

    CEX seem to be paying 15 for trade in.

    Untested... but ordered ready for activating at the end of the month so I can play in February . You are limited to ordering 1 from Arg0s ... per order it seems .

    HTH

    Swipe and win! The last couple of times my guardian angel ensured my fuel tank was empty. I shall try and remember to help her with this task this year.

    Can anyone remember please? When we returned stuff, were our bonus points removed? I remember having a terrible hassle with a pair of trousers (which I had genuinely hoped would fit) in a not-local store. He refused to take them back without a receipt so I swopped them for a different size, which generated a receipt, and then I returned them in a different store for the money on a gift card.

    I'm out for the day now but will catch up again this evening.
