    The Sun is only 20p instead of 35p now, if you like reading made up news then its good value!! :D

    Still dearer, sheet for sheet, and only marginally softer than Tesco Value Toilet Paper. :rolleyes:

  • The sheerness tescos can sometimes have whole chickens up for 15 p once even 5 p. If you are freindly with the supermarket people you might even get them free of charge.

  • I have never thought of it to be honest, but what would you do with your last £1 if your werent in debt? I would gladly give it to the homless man on the street or buy him a coffee :D

    I've noticed that Tesco Value Toilet Paper has more accurate and objective journalism than the Sun too, so probably best to use your quid on the loo roll.

    A quid used to buy you a box of Cadbury mis-shapes (nearly all Milk Tray chocolates etc.....heaven!). Was in the Cadbury shop on sunday and was shocked to see the mis-shapes are now 3.29!!!!! So I think for my quid I'd have to choose value spaghetti and tins of chopped tomatoes (Value of course). Still one of may favourite dishes!
    CC2 = £8687.86 ([STRIKE]£10000[/STRIKE] )CC1 = £0 ([STRIKE]£9983[/STRIKE] ); Reusing shopping bags savings =£5.80 vs spent £1.05.Wine is like opera. You can enjoy it even if you don't understand it and too much can give you a headache the next day J

    Spent £1 in the pay-and-display to go to the CAB which, in turn has saved us over £100 a month so I think that takes some beating.....:j
    YOUR = belonging to you (your coat); YOU'RE = you are (I hope you're ok)

    I would probably spend mine on something totally stupid! Good tip about the tuna, pasta and tomatos though! Although, which supermarket sells the 21p bread??
