What vouchers?

So I've won some vouchers! But I don't know what to get!
Am desperately trying to save (so thought I'll get Sainsbury's and then use them to pay for my weekly fuel - all budgeted 😳) and then just save the money normally spent on fuel.
Turns out you can't use vouchers to pay for fuel - go figure?!
So anyway - inspire me!
I don't really clothes shop, I'd get John Lewis but don't really know what I'd get in John Lewis?!
Am bloody rubbish lol help!

Can you do the fuel & save idea, but with wherever you'd usually buy your weekly shopping instead?

Get supermarket vouchers, use them to buy groceries, save grocery money.

I shop at Lidl and Aldi 😳 do they do vouchers?

Oh my days, I can't even spend vouchers! Epic life fail πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

What options do you have?

Maybe Argos for unexpected household items breaking / needing replaced?

Asda as it's not that much more expensive than Lidl / Aldi and you can save your shopping budget?

Do you have a list you can choose from?
What about Amazon? I'm getting vouchers for participating in a survey and I've been getting Amazon as I'll spend them at some point (actually I've spend them already 🀣).

@Chasingsquirrels what are you spending them on?! Inspiration needed!

I'm looking to move soon (hence the saving like mad) maybe I should wait till I'm moved then decide?

Just various stuff,
New iron (mine caught fire!)
Birthday present for my mum
Printer ink
Filters, chemicals & dipsticks for the inflatable hot tub I got earlier in the year
Extending dog lead & some dog training aids
All stuff I would have brought anyway, so not just buying for the sake of it. At the moment I've got about Β£60 sat on my account.
I'm having all the vouchers and giving my kids cash for theirs.

Could you use the vouchers to buy Xmas presents and then save the money you would have spent that way?

If you are moving, what about Dunelm?

Oooh didn't know Amazon did horse stuff! Amazon it is then πŸ˜‚
