    Would you return cheap tat? 12th Apr 17 at 5:23 PM
    Today for example I spent £1.40 on a wrist support wrap that on picture showed it covering whole hand bar fingers and quite far up wrist.

    I got it and it didn't even wrap around my arm let alone my whole wrist.

    And bought various things from places like Poundland that are useless.

    To me even £1 can be used to buy something like a few food items or some toiletries so if I do take anything back I wait a few days until I need something from same store and just exchange it.

    But heard people say that is tight and they would just bin it.

    Cheap tat that isn't fit for purpose become expensive tat!


    Personally, I would take back anything that isn't up to doing the job that its supposed to do, regardless of price paid


    Credit where credit is due - Poundland do have some really good stuff - but you need to choose with care - I bought head torches in 2013 that are still going strong despite daily use in winter.

    Choose wisely in a bargain shop. I buy very little tat, but I do buy Poundland 3 ply loo roll - it is excellent quality and far better than Andrex. Yes I know, not something you would return, but just saying! I also bought some batteries in there, a well known brand, but they only lasted a few weeks and were rubbish. I didn't take them back but wish I had.
