        Went to Wilkos today to look at their Xmas stuff and decide what I'll get when it goes to 50% off.

              @Scrungee I haven't been in a Wilko/Wilkinson store since before Tony Wilkinson retired. The last time I went in there was last century and in those days it was mainly hardware.

              I remember a conversation a few years ago;
              Woman - "let'e not get each other presents this year, maybe treat each other in the sales after or something"
              Me - "good idea"

              Fast forward to the post coital cuddle on christmas day;
              Woman - "shall we do pressies now then"
              :yikes: :wallbanging: :help: :sofa:

              I do any christmas shopping on christmas eve after lunch. Well cheap, the town is dead and deffo no bawling rugrats about! Usually rattled off in an hour.

                Ever since my first visit to a Wilko (think it was Banbury) when we filled a bucket full of gardening stuff, took it to the checkout and the sales assistant scanned the bucket barcode and said "That's £1.50" [1] we've been going back ever since.

                Somewhere on this forum is my post from when we filled 2 trollies with gardening stuff when everything was scanning at 1p (you can't get much cheaper than that), from packs of pots to mini greenhouses.

                [1] Yes, the bucket was overpriced.
