I just bought a weeks worth of groceries for my family of 5 (bottomless pits) and filled my car with unleaded for a grand total of.....


I've been sitting on coupons for months and we are absolutely skint, so it was finally time to crack - the rainy day I was saving them for has arrived! grin

You win! I don't think any if us can beat that.

Good for you

That is excellent. I am in awe of you. Yes, please explain the petrol!

Boy I bet that felt good. I save Nectar points and NatWest points for Xmas food and it gives you a little glow to know you have that comfort blanket.

There are some exclusions (tobacco, infant milk, medicines etc) in a footnote but yes- looks like petrol is fine.
