    Does everyone know about Glenliven(??) yogurt on COS buy from Sainsburys - get 1.50 back and its only 2 so final price is only 50p in real money. There are 3 flavours and remember to look for better dates at the back of the shelf.

    I ran out of Mullers - I expect everyone still has dozens of them. I liked the pistatio ones but otherwise OH and Errant son eat the rest, they are too fiddly for me

    Still no sigh of these small hippeas packs but I did find the Shopimum free sauce

    I agree totally mhoc. Im pleased I only have 2 children, Im unsure I could cope with anymore. The difference in the pace of their lives and ours is huge. They fly around the world at the drop of a hat, travel to London for a party etc and cram so much into every minute of the day that it leaves me breathless.
    DS is just back from Manila/ Hong Kong but is home later today. DD is in Liverpool on a one day course but will be home later too.....and heres me sat in my dressing gown trying to work out the cheapest place to buy fabric softener

    I've managed to dress, organise whats for dinner and been to Mr T for cashback items, done all of the receipt uploads - on a wet miserable February day I think thats quite impressive

    But this has reminded me to email a complaint.
    You used to get Thorntons misshapes from Home Bargains for 1 and odd times there were these marzipan ones which were very nice - not any more.
    I wish I'd got the coffee ones now

    FYI
    I needed something cheap to reach 10 to get free paper. I had a 1.50 coupon for nuts
    Did not really want them but heyho they were free
    No problem sa scanning a 1.50 voucher against a 1 pack. So 50 p profit on nuts
    Guessing it will work on most mailing vouchers unless a specific item named. HTH
    Todays 11 shop cost 1.55
    Oh I will so miss pyo

    I thought they might have fixed not having to spend the full amount to meet the conditional spend vouchers, but this came a bit out of the blue

    I don't think they currently have a multi - they are between offers and setting the high price to comply with the promotions law (so ripping people off for a while ).

I assume these former rollback items are straight 1.07, which they now have to establish since the mbuy is more expensive than the rollback price. Being the same individual price though, they look set to move into the mbuy on the one day I stop looking at them - I assume it's buy overnight on the morning the mbuy starts (bet it'll be a Monday and stores here not open that overnight) and before the A mbuy pricing gets updated into the system.
