It's a stock up shop from Approved Food basically all the cupboard and dry goods essentials -

Saving of about £88 on the RRP of that lot - another batch arriving tomorrow for the wife ( 4 Cans of Stella Artois elderflower cidre for £1.00 was too good to pass up)

btw. I went to LDL's last week and they had a new lot of jumbo kitchen rolls. :D I've had them before but they tend to sell quickly.
These rolls are huge - about 5 times as big as normal rolls and they last for ages. Very handy about the workshop.
2.49 apiece. I got 6. I only had a small trolley or I would have got more. Nearly went back for another load. :lol:

Also it's worth looking in the tools and stuff. I got a great snap-of knife holder for 2.99. It's a really solid bit of kit (German made).
Very strong and smooth in operation with a holder inside for 5 spare blades (included).

They sometimes have rolls of carpet. Green. For conservatories and such. These are great for laying on a bench for frame assembly.
Afterwards you can lay them on the floor and hoover any bits off. 3 quids a pop.

The snag is that you have to grab them while they are going or wait until they get some more in.
