I was refuelling the car and thought I would nip into Asda to spend my 'wombled' coupon of £2.02. I knew we would need milk for next week and Asda milk always has a nice long date on it. Sorted.
But what else to buy with the coupon after all the milk was only £1.09? I decided on a treat for me, an Alpro Vanilla yogurt to have for a couple of breakfast with some frozen bananas, blueberries and mixed seeds before rationing brings the toast and cereal breakfasts next week.
And very nice it is too.
The receipt ... showing my massive spend of 7p :-)
Left in the Purse £306.02
Through the letter box this week came these coupons from M&S ...
... and then a day later these from Tesco.
So that's a total of £20.50, that should pay for the shopping for a couple of weeks, especially as rationing starts on Monday.
And it will most likely be the last time we get this amount in coupons, as this was all earned on pre-Christmas shopping and the spending now is down to paltry amounts.
