some bike parts
oh wait you said that
why would you do that to yourself?
just buy good socks
and will also add in chopped tomatoes and shampoo.
I always get the cheapest italian ones with min 70% tomato content
fruit & veg
That adage that if you pay the most you don't necessarily get the best, but if you pay the least you almost certainly get the worst, does often hold true...
...that cheap paracetamol is fine.
Such a tightwad.
always buy the odd shaped budget stuff. it tastes as good as the perfect coiffured stuff.
Definitely not loo roll.
but Cravendale makes ordinary milk seem like horse shit
Socks and toilet paper are without a doubt things that I would never EVER spend the bare minimum on. You're a fucking animal, pal. Theo, shut this shit down
terrible with a capital B
Travel Insurance (worked out well when I lost my purse)
This has made realise I spend too much on too much.
I'd avoid any american airline if I could.
and fucking ryanair. fuck them.
And they're all American, it made me so happy.
Actually, I mean - I def go as cheap as poss on Europe flights. Not so much ROTW (that's rest of the World)
ancient planes with rubbish entertainment systems.
delta are the worst though.
Virgin are the worst, though. How do you feel about THAT?
We have good convos.
Although on the flipside, £160 return to NY including taxes made me put up with a lot...
Lost my luggage. Returned it to my hotel 8 hours before I left. Also getting to speak to someone took about 4 hours
same though, I've looked into it. Ello!
They're completely different! I can see at all with normal lenses!
felt physically sick all day about that
it has a digital fuel gauge, and when i rented one it never went down a segment. excellent.
it's amazing, you can put about 10-15 quid less in.
including soap and stuff, but not shampoo or conditioner
If you buy cheap limescale remover you're in an absolute world of hurt.
but the point stands
Sure, you're single-handedly saving the wales, but at what cost to your sanity from slogging away with substandard cleaning products?
can't see any point spending more.
Maybe hair bands? But I wouldn't go out of my way to find cheap ones.
Shirts - never pay full price, always wait until Debenham's blue cross sale.
I bought some proper running socks a little while ago. Now they were £14.99, but they changed my life.
Just buy own brand and double drop innit
enjoy your raw butt and sweaty feet, jonny
i won't name and shame but come on raise your game
sponges and cloths and brushes for washing up
ibuprofen / paracetamol
cheapest flights for all European breaks
they are the same thing. I have seen packs of ibuprofen for 19p in poundstretcher, they contain exactly the same as nurofen, but without the express pain relief BS.
(I buy the cheap ones too)
Hookahs. I don't see the point in spending a lot on smoking apparatus.
the "finest" or organic veg can fuck off, I'm fine with bashed up dirty cheap stuff in odd shapes thanks.
Also - storecupboard stuff like flour, sugar, salt and the like.
I mean I buy some things wholesale like nuts but I can't think of anything I buy the cheapest version of. Fruit squash maybe sometimes I'll buy a supermarket own brand black current knowing its not as nice as Ribera. thought of one: soya milk.
a lot of the time is identical to the normal own brand stuff, just in tackier packaging. They just know they have three levels to hit people at, the cheapos will buy the value, other people may get the normal stuff or even finest or branded. A lot of cheapos will get nervous and splash out on the normal branded stuff instead of value, giving the supermarket even more money.
about Smartprice stuff though obvs
Never pay more than £6
