    1 litre of vimto concentrate from poundland + sparkling water from supermarket.

    Should give about 5 litres of vimto for about 1.30, tastes just as good as the regular stuff too.

    I just found that B&M Bargains are selling TigerTiger tikka mayo for 0.49 and Provamel custard for 0.49. Both have best before dates in Sept, but still taste good at the moment.

    It doesn't even say you have to 'like' them to get the freebies! I'm going to wait to try them before I offer my oh-so-valuable 'like' endorsement!

    Just bought a sleeping-bag for 2.50 at Tesco. However on perusal of the label, it says "not suitable for high altitude, or extremely low temperatures." Damn it! My 2012 assault on the summit of Mt Everest is going to be more expensive than I thought...

    We now have 2 of these cheepo sleeping bags. I think Mrs Lv and I intend using them when the rapture hits on 21 Dec 2012 and we have to leave the crumbling metropolis of Leeds and live rough in the Yorkshire Dales. I give us about a week 'cos Mr & Mrs Rambo we aint.

    Thanks for the heads up! I'm reading through it while soup is cooking and it looks very good... especially the oven-baked doughnuts recipe

    There are some recipes in it I wouldn't mind trying, but I think it would be more attractive without some of the photographs

    Think it demonstrates that professional "food stylists" earn their money - although actually some of the food pictures people post on here look very attractive too.

    Agree about the pictures. Some of the text in the first few pages put me off as well, like telling the reader how to avoid soya but not why and things like...

    The most cruelty-free (but still not strictly vegan) source is from lanolin, which is wool fat; this doesnt involve harming the sheep
    Plus I hate measurements in cups (so messy compared to just weighing) and the recipes just weren't to my liking.

    Didn't read the beginning or notice the lanolin bit - daft. I do like lentils a lot though so the idea of their triumph is appealing

    I didn't read the beginning either - I never do for cookbooks, I also dislike using cups so I end up using cups 1st time round, measure on the scales how much the cups makes and then use that in future.

    I agree that using "cups" can be a pain. Why don't they give you an exact weight? Makes no sense.

    Oddly, I like using cups (despite being from the UK). It's quicker IMHO and I can easily eyeball a food packet in the cupboard to see if there is a cup of whatever before I start to cook.

    Gourmet sleuth has a convertor which has the specific density of food types so you can put in how much you want in volume and it tells you the weight, and the same in reverse.

    I found a thread yesterday on cleaning products but I can't find it now; at any rate, some of you may have noticed that during the past year Ecover has reduced the size of its (non-bio) washing powder boxes from 1.2 kg to 750g. The least expensive place that I have found in which to buy the new size is Wilkinson's where the normal retail price is 3.50. Wilko's currently have a special offer - while stocks last - down to 2.62, meaning that it works out as a shade under 3.50 per kilo. Granted that in real terms this is still expensive for washing powder, but if you use Ecover anyway (as I do) it is worth stocking up (as I already have) as it is hardly perishable.

    Ecover isn't vegan unfortunately. They say they're against animal testing and then do it anyway, that's why they are no longer vegan society approved.

    Is Ecover not tested on animals?
