    And if you look around you can often pick them up second hand.

    A metal disc, same size as a pound coin that fits on my key ring. Has saved all the hassle of getting a pound coin, which I never seemed to have, for the supermarket trolley……….. All for 35 pence!

    35p Woody? You was robbed I’ve got about half a dozen that were free, only know where 2 are though.

    Wahl clippers, £40 about twenty years ago. Lifetimes supply of hair cuts, bargain.

    A lifetime supply for £9! Bargain.

    I can understand having ‘a’ spare whilst you are waiting for your usual one to dry after washing it out – but 23… That’s just wasteful.

    I am now followed by Durex adverts all around STW 🙂

    EDIT: Another real contribution – Primark boxers. Never seem to need anything else, and they last well.

    EDIT EDIT:

    Quite like this too, it’s not great, but it’s OK out of a Stovetop Moka widget and wakes me up.

    cable/zip ties – big bag for a quid at a quid shop, so many uses.

    A proper butter knife.

    Don’t think you can buy them, you have to wait for an old person to die.
