Chemists - £85 saved!

The article on cheap hayfever remedies caught my eye in one of the weekly emails, so I visited one of the recommended sites, and found some suitable tablets for a fraction of a cost we got the same stuff for in Boots.

Out of interest, we started clicking around the site and took the opportunity to stock up on all sorts of other tablets - ibuprofen, paracetamols, vitamin tablets, and then one some other stuff such as eye rinsing liquids, cold sore creams.

We finished off by getting a load of the P20 suntan lotion for about £10/bottle cheaper than we usually pay in town, and stocked up on a load of razors, shampoo and shower gels that were about half the price we normally pay in the supermarket.

We estimate that we have spent £65 on stuff we would have shelled out £150 on and would have used anyway.

I fully recommend checking out some of the online stuff rather than just shoving it into the basket when doing the weekly shop!!
