    How many teabags per box?

    Normally 20 teabags per box - they are individually wrapped inside the box. I drink the Three Mint Tea so I'm assuming all their range is similarly packaged.
    A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realise how blessed you are.

    So 41 boxes x 20 teabags per box = 820 teabags

    Divided by 365 days = 2 1/4 cups of tea per day

    Still a nice prize though

    I've won some Mam milestone cards. The only thing I think I can cross off is number 22.

    Help please Lucinad!!!!

    Don't even knnow if I can cross off 22 (prize less than £10 as I don't think you can buy them, but similar sets sell for £12.99).

    Who would have thought that with my second win, I cannot find what to cross off?
