Yep. Mrs KW drinks Ribena like it's going out of fashion and it's always cheaper to buy a couple of the smaller bottles than a large one.

With all the butthurt about plastic waste these days you'd have thought there would be an incentive to choose the product with less packaging. ::)

I noticed that with a brand of coffee in the above mentioned store quite a while ago. Buying a 200g jar was more expensive than buying 2x100g jars! Sometime later they got pulled up buy a consumer program about it and other products, where the same thing was happening. The shop's response was 'Its a pricing error and will be corrected". But going by Shack's experience, its still going on!
Some people just assume buying a larger packet will be cheaper!

But, as you allude to, some (the majority?) people are either too thick or too lazy to even check.  And a fool and his money are easily parted.  I don't really do supermarkets, but last time I was in, I'm sure everything also have a smaller label about £/kg or £/l to make it easier for the mongs...   ...not that the caluculations are in any way taxing.


And WTF are all the consumer groups getting all worked up over. A shop should be allowed to price and goods at any price they want, and the consumer should make decisions upon that. Obviously, if said shop is then uncompetitive, then they are likely to lose customers.


Top marks to Tesco - it seems they understand the intelligence/industrious levels of the majority of their customers, and exploit it. I applaud them, and others, for fully grasping their customers.

I think somebody or three had written into Watchdog....who then took it up with the supermarket....

So weíve seen a house we like and is within budget, just need to sell this place now.

Well, it is within budget, if we sell this place for a decent price.  :)

And that shows the scale of the problem. Firstly, somebody actually wrote in to complain, secondly, the BBC.

Has a garage, lots of potential for roof space, felt quite big, wider than mine.

Sloped driveway though  :(

But most in that area are, it ticks the main box though of walking distance to Little MissTís school.

Along with kitchen/dinner, multi reception rooms and play room for the girls.

I keep trying to move her on to beer, if only for entertainment value, but she's not having it. ;D

Agreed....the first house I owned was attractive because it came with a two car drive and a garage. I didn't give a f*uck about the kitchen.

My drive also has quite a slope, but it does have its advantages. If I want to work under the rear of the car. Reverse it onto a pair of ramps so the car sits level and I have plenty of room to work with. Same goes for the front, obviously.
Making sure its very well chocked is crucial though.

A single garage will never be anything more than a secure-ish shed

Sloped driveway though  :(
Bugger, how bad?

But most in that area are, it ticks the main box though of walking distance to Little MissTís school.
So you can sell the shitbox Zaffy then, as no longer needed, that's gotta be £8k towards the house.

Along with kitchen/dinner, multi reception rooms and play room for the girls.
Eh? I'm hearing white noise. What about a gentlemans playroom/mancave?

The Zafira would stay, I've actually grown quite fond of it in short space of time. It's fantastic for load lugging, it's surprisingly comfy with MV6 style seats done some big 3.5/4 hour runs in it no problem. Also handy that MrsT can sit in the middle at the back in some comfort, BabyT is not as good at travelling as Little MissT was. Also got some big trips coming up, so going to be needed more than ever.

What I really want to find out is if Uncle Rupert will pull his finger out and buy Sky, it's been dragging on for ages now. Damn government meddling and processes and such, just made it drag and drag. As a tidy sum could be had from that deal!

The garage would be the man cave, but as mentioned it appeared really tall. To the point you could board it and have a second floor, that's where I'm thinking man cave. Put a ladder as access and it could be made "secure" from the girls  :D

As for the slope it's not that bad, I need to drive past again. Two spaces at front, room for a 3rd. One in front of the garage is sloped more than other one closer to the house.
