Wouldn’t it be nice if kids only needed one pack of shirts per year? But no we have to have long sleeved and short sleeved and then they grow!
Anyway, I needed some short sleeved boys white school shirts, sized 13-14 or 13. They are not cheap! I looked at M&S – £6 – £12 for two, John Lewis – £8 – £14 for two, then Asda had no stock, neither did BHS, so I turned to Tesco. As I need six, I don’t really want to spend over £30 for school shirts. Now I have bought uniform from Tesco before and not been back in a few years. Quality didn’t cut it. I tended to buy uniform from Sainsburys, but they don’t sell it online.
But this time Tesco saved me and I …
The Olixar 4.8A travel adapter with four USB ports is a life-saver. If you’ve ever been on a train or a trip with the family or on a trip with a group of friends, there’s always a scramble to plug in chargers so that everybody can get their fill of Facebook, Spotify, Clash of Clans or whatever on their portable electronics.
And on another a recent train journey we had four phones to charge and only one socket available to us…what to do? Take turns?
No need with the Olixar travel adapter. It has four usb ports so we could use it to charge all four …
My wedding cost a small fortune…luckily my dad paid for it! But that was many years ago and I know of plenty of my friends who are contributing to their own weddings and plenty of others who are getting married for the second time.
So check out this awesomely cool Wedding Cost Calculator that might be useful when you are planning your special day. This interactive, user friendly app considers each element of the cost of a wedding to give ballpark quotes for what each element will cost and helps anyone looking to budget for their big day. From venue and photographer to place settings and hair and make up costs, I reckon that this calculator do some rough sums to understand what you may be able to afford.
I love original art, but the pieces I have didn’t come cheap. For example, I won a laptop and sold it to fund my two favourite pictures and have my own photography framed, and a lot of bare walls.
Bare walls cost a lot to fill, you see. While Ikea does some reasonable pictures, they aren’t originals. It’s nice to tell a story behind a picture and there’s always a story behind a piece of original art.
Somewhere where you can buy original art where every painting is less than £100 is the Original Art Under £100 website. That doesn’t mean that everything is £99. They have price brackets and IMHO, the images became more buyable if they are over £26.

The Office of National Statistics came up with some great figures about zero inflation and maybe deflation being just around the corner. If you don’t know, deflation is a reduction of the general level of prices. With the latest figures, a typical basket of products that cost £100 a year ago cost £100 today too – so that’s good as we understand better what we can get for our money. In the past year, however, food prices have fallen by 3.2 per cent and the cost of petrol by 13.7 per cent. While the cost of clothing and gas prices pushed inflation down, there were also rises in petrol prices and small increases in food from February to March this year, so we are not getting negative inflation yet. We may get negative inflation (deflation) as early as April.Read more
