Re: bit of a whingey whine

yes it is, and it feels immoral really - knowing that someone (in this case your OH) has handed over their cash and the company, simply doesn't care if it's redeemed or not.

Re: Jugit.. have you seen?

sainsburys did a big push of this a few yeas ago, maybe as many as 5 years? i did buy a couple of jugits and for a few weeks bought the bags, but they only come in 2pts andd as a family we get through 12 - 15 pints a weeks easily, so it was not cost effective or practical to buy milk that way for us...

Re: Sewing machine, help!
