I didn't realise garden hose washers were such a touchy subject.

I got 12 cans of some Irish lager for less than a tenner in Tesco the other day. Two cans smashed open when I put them in the car, getting stinky booze smell everywhere and ruining any illusion of me getting a bargain.

Visited a friend who was having water supply issues, so I stopped off at the supermarket and bought a load of cheapest own-brand bottled water, something crazy like 9p for 5L, so a couple of quid filled the boot. Really satisfying, just getting so much mass/volume for so little.

I don't think I've ever bought anything that I didn't immediately regret 100%

Last Christmas eve or new years eve Morrisons had packs of bacon reduced to 30p, literally hundreds and hundreds of them. Bought a tenners worth and filled a freezer drawer.

A few post-Christmases ago my local Tesco Metro was selling off entire rounds of brie for about 50p each. I wasn't sure if you could freeze it so I only bought 2 but it still took me about 3 weeks to eat them and they were fine, no discernible mould even a fortnight after the use by date.

Bought a 25kg sack of dextrose for £20 which isn't cheap, but is if you consider the kilo size boxes go for over £3.

Matey from parcelforce looked like he wanted to kill me, mind, I live 4 floors up and the lift is fucked.

I've never bought any dextrose in my life, so that probably amounts to at least 25kg.  Maybe more for a whole lifetime supply.  For which I paid nothing.  I win again.  Wahooo.

About 100 baccy tins filled with screws, nuts, bolts, springs, allen keys, drill bits, zip ties, earthing connectors, pipe brackets and the likes, all neatly labelled. The life (and presumably death) of a handyman in one surprisingly heavy cardboard box.

In exchange for a bottle of mead.

I love barter.

Actually I do have something for this, because I've not got a haircut since march I got a load of elastic hair bobbles for £3 so I can pony-tail my hair to keep it out my eyes when I'm doing manual labour or spod work that involves looking down a bit.

When I was living in the Japanese supermarket I went to some kind of massive wholesaler place and ended up buying a gigantic fuck-off pack of beer snacks. It was these but in like a massive sack:



I don't know what compelled me to do it. I just thought it would be a nice thing to have a year's supply of. I put the sack in the corner of my little one-room flat and would routinely just grab handfuls. It stayed nice and edible for several months but eventually I got so sick of the stuff. I don't think I actually finished it but I can't remember what I did with it. Just tipped it into the bin?

Boring story. Post.

You can to be lucky 100 times. They only have to be lucky once.

At least you instantly realised they were 100 pairs. I was slightly disappointed when they arrived. Still better value than the name brand nipple guards.

Packet of 9 crumpets from Tesco is 37p at the mo. Could almost make you love capitalism, that.

I live near a Jewish area and after Passover, the local supermarkets sell their surplus of Matzo crackers for pennies a box. They're lovely with a bit of marg and cheese and olives. I feel like its sacrilege if I ever feed them to birds and squirrels though. I used to work near a Lidl that sold pumpkins for about 5p after Halloween finished, but there are only so many pumpkins you can eat before they start rotting.

I only recently discovered how cheap mozzarella cheese can be. I got a perfectly decent big ol' ball of it from Asda for about 60p

Not Mozzarella though, is it? It's congealed gnats pus masquerading as mozzarella (Mozzierella more like!)
