  1. Thankyou Wendy. I know it takes time to just write and photograph these posts. They are so useful. Mimi xxx

  2. Hi Wendy, I just wanted to ask about your experiences with rain checks, If you get a rain check for multiple items to do you have to purchase all of those items when you come to redeem your Raincheck or can you just redeem one or two of those items at a time? Thanks, amy

    1. I've only every redeemed all the items on the rain check. As far as I know Woolworths still offers 12 months on their rain check. I wait until it's near the expiry date and redeeem all of them.

  3. Thankyou Wendy,
    I picked up some of the Lipton tea Bags and beef stock( I tend to only make chicken stock).
    Wendy I always look for a good sale price of Vegemite , but rarely if ever see it. I would love to get it close to half price.
    Your efforts are most appreciated.

    1. I would like to get Vegemite at half price too but it doesn't come anywhere near as cheap as that. Kraft have just reduced their jar size. The cheapest price is now $1.32 per 100g. The old price was $1.25 per 100g.

  4. I bought 20 mouthwashes, 16 toothpastes and 20 shampoo/conditioners today. Such a good price. With 4 kids we go through alot of mouthwash, toothpaste and shampoo and conditioner. I use rainchecks all the time, in my experience Woolworths have only allowed me to use the raincheck once, so I need to purchase it in one transaction. I too use mine close to the use by date. So far I have 12 rainchecks in my purse!!! - Nicole

  5. Thanks Wendy. Our Coles here have butternut pumpkin at 70 c a kilo so I will be getting heaps to roast and also make soup. The toothpaste for $1 is a really good one! I will get that as well, thank you! xxx
