My lawnmower died on Sunday, so baulked at the £200 plus for a half decent petrol lawnmower.

Took a look on Ebay, found a local nearly new self propelled lawnmower for just £50, only used 4 times due to the chap moving to a house with no lawn.

What is the best bargain you have had?

The hooker said it was the best time she'd ever had and gave me the money back*

This is a really sad thread!

However, as I'm here anyway, best bargain ever was a full set of hardly used Le Creuset pans for £30, because the lady who had them didn't like the colour (and I suspect didn't know what they were really worth). I still grin when I see the individual items advertised for £80 plus.

It's not changed me though.

I had left the shotgun polishing shop to pick up my gun, it was really cold so was wearing a balaclava and headed of to the bank to ask about my ISA. Must have been 10000 customer or something as they handed me a bag of free cash.

a job lot of yellow stock bricks (Buyer collects)

advertised as 500 for £50 ended up as 2-3000 which were worth about £3000.

Rich lawyer type with a huge house so I didn't feel too bad.

Has changed my garden nicely.

What colour are they? Mine are blue and CM's orange. We possibly need a thread for this.

I have the smaller cooking pot in blue from my student days, the bigger one in cream that gets used for just about everything these days and then the usual collection of lasagna "bake something in the oven" types in various shapes & sizes but all orange. Also included in orange is a set of ramekins. WTF was I thinking of when I bought them? :winker:


Finally a thread I can get my teeth into. :p

Right, I've had a word with mum and she says you owe me £15K in back dated pocketmoney and £30K in missed christmases and birthdays.

Or she says she's happy to phone the CSA if you'd prefer.
