    Last thing you bought? 28th Mar 11 at 3:58 PM
    I swear there was a thread on this but I can't find it.

    Anyway, what was the last thing you bought? (it can be matter how small. ).

    I'm not feeling very well today so after my hospital appointment OH and I went into town and I bought a cropped denim jacket. I used to have one but I lost it in a GP surgery somewhere.

    So, how about you?

    £76 shop from Waitrose. and £76 from Guntons Deli. A binge shop after awful poverty that sent me to my warm electric blanket heated bed and making economies every which way.
    I hope to do a proper shop at Wivenhoe Deli and Keepers Farm Nurseries Shop as I seriously need some proper local food.

    When praise God Tesco Clubcard Plus sent me my money, them hoping I would deposit it with them. I brought a R13 Chromebook for £399 as no laptop and living off Ipads, a Wileyfox 16gb mobile as no mobile, a Fitbit Blaze now returned plus £120 to BT to hopefully clear my Bill. BT being incompetent as usual.

    I have more or less left the Supermarkets. I don't know if Waitrose will perform.
    My favourite places to shop are Abel and Cole, Riverford get back, Wivenhoe Deli, Colchester deli, the local Farmers Market, Keepers Nurseries Tile Barn Lane Lawford for fruit veg apple juice and eggs! And anything local regional national high welfare.
    I shop Borough Market when I am in the area.
    I have discovered to my costs that the Supermarkets sell tasteless highly processed food from CAFA Farms. The above have ruined me for Supermarkets.
    I would rather have a hassle getting my shopping which is flavourful then easily go to the any of the four supermarkets in my area.
    Flavour is my way of qaulity moneysaving.

    I bought a hearing aid, well two. I lost mine ages ago and have been trying to get around to going the hospital for a replacement. I think last time i lost it they charged me £75. Then at the weekend i noticed them in Lidl for £10. I thought for a tenner i'd take a chance before going back to the hospital. I never realised how bad my hearing had gone until i put the aids in. The radio & Tv are only on half volume and i can hear them better. Walking to the shops today, the traffic was so loud. So i've put one aid back in it's box, just wearing one, and that's on it's lowest setting. Well worth a tenner.
