Angelfeathers Have you tried the supermarket OBs for toiletries? I did try the value/basics ranges but wasn’t happy with those but more than happy with the OBs. And they cost pence – for example 57p for 750ml Jojoba & Balsam shampoo or 99p for 750ml coconut shampoo, same price for matching conditioners, 55p for a litre of Magnolia & Silk crème bath or 78p for cornflower & silk or for lilac (prices for MrT on mysupermarket tonight). My spending for non-food (toiletries, loo roll, cleaning stuff & pet supplies) averages about £10 a month!

CW18 - I saw your query about slow cooking. Whenever I cook a spaghetti bolognese, chilli, shepherds pie filling, curry etc I use exactly the same recipe that I would use if I was cooking it normally.

It's DH who's the fussy one and wants his Lynx stuff and his hair gel and after-shave balm (though he has tried one I got from Tesco on special offer and says it's okay)
