New double glazing.... Though I've not paid for all of it yet, due to the problems.

2 Salter baking trays with 5 year warranties. Reduced to the same price as basic Tesco ones.

I had to email them though:

I have just purchased 2 Megastone Gold 37cm baking trays.
 
It took me half an hour to remove the rubbery adhesive that stuck the labels on.
 
Non stick?

Went to pick up my beer order. His wholesaler is screwing everyone by upping the price by 60p per can! He's still paying the same to import them, but wants to be rich(er).

So I have to look elsewhere for my supplies.  :-\

Iodised salt. 6 Kg for just over £3. A lot cheaper than the branded stuff from Sainsburys at £2.50 per kg!

Went to pick up my beer order. His wholesaler is screwing everyone by upping the price by 60p per can! He's still paying the same to import them, but wants to be rich(er).

The wholesaler upped the price by another 30p, (retail then £2.40), got no takers, so dropped it back to £2.10 retail. Still no takers so he dropped it back to £1.20 wholesale, £1.50 retail. Sales started again. But the bloke I buy it from lets me have it at £1.46 retail. A small saving, but a saving is a saving.

A card of watch batteries and 2 packs of sugar from Poundland (1.65kg for 50p, and odd size ???) 65p/kg in most shops, but only 30p/kg in Poundland. ???

Just found a recall from last year when "small particles of metal" could be in them. But not the batch numbers they are selling now.
