    are you using a high enough wattage bulb?
    to replace a 100watt bulb you need a 20 watt cfl.

    to light my front room I use 4x11watt cfls in lamps
    a 15 watt in an up lighter and if I want more then I turn on the big lights
    2x20 watt cfls
    That's 99 watts where I would have been using 420. And I get more light from it.

    I got a load of good qality 20 watt ones from tesco for 10p each a few weeks ago. Waitrose have them in at 1 and by one get one free

    no, as Bradders says just make sure you get the correct equivalent wattage.

    You'll struggle to get the incandescent bulbs soon, as they are being all but outlawed. I would be very skeptical of skin cancer claims. We have had 11 free bulbs turn up so far.

    Noticed this offer today for years free membership to a days out website - has some country parks and saw an owl rescue on there (apologies the site will no doubt contain offers/listings for zoos too)

    If you go on the days out site

    http://www.daysoutuk.com/

    Its a site listing days out and often free child prices if an adult pays.

    Its 14.99 for full membership with lots more offers than the website has but if you enter the following code it lets you join for free!

    Morissons have Redwood's Cheatin Beef and Sage and Onion for 1 a packet at mo, also doing their own soya mince (for vegans) which I used to make a chilli on friday. Not as good as Realeat but fine for the money and its about half the price. Also stocking Cheezley. :smile:
    Umm sorry also Cauldron are on offer there, be careful tho as the mushroom burgers are not vegan -veggie I made that mistake and bought two packets, OH will have them tho'.

    I don't know if any of you are familiar with approvedfood.co.uk, but its a website by a wholesaler, that uses this website to sell food thats mostly past their BB date, so you can get good deals.

    At the moment they have sosmix! BBE April 09, but its dried so I suspect it will be fine for much longer. Only 59 in stock, so if you are interested buy soon!

    They have other suitable things as well, but I thought this might be the one of most interest, seeing as its not available any more.

    Took a look at approvedfoods.com but I wasn't happy with spending so much on delivery for so little that I wanted, so didn't go ahead with the sos mix. Thanks for the link though will keep an eye on it.

    On Friday 10 July [that's tomorrow], Green Britain Day, Southern will be offering a wide range of Southern Advance single tickets at a staggering 90% discount, compared to the normal 40% currently available when tickets are booked online in advance of travel. This means that some tickets to London can be bought for as little as 50p! Tickets can be bought on-line on the day only for travel up to three months ahead.

    Can you not just do an open return bradders? I've just checked Darwen to Brighton return for x3 people September 10 returning on the 14th first class just under 1400!! Standard class 945!?! If we go off peak every train journey this equates to 240. Will it be cheaper to check tomorrow?

    probably specific trains only.
    I am the master of cheap fares though so will be checking very early in the morning.

    (try booking from manchester to brighton rather than daren, may be a lot cheaper for several reasons) also try splitting the journy darwen-manchester-watford/milton keynes-(clapham-brighton)/(brighton) this can save hundreds of pounds and tomorrow you could save 90% on the milton keynes-brighton portion anyway

    Oooh, this is really good to know about. I might try to pack in a quick UK tour at the end of this month if it works out cheap enough.

    EDIT: Oh, I got excited too soon. This is only Southern Railway; I should have noticed that before thinking I could get a cheap UK tour with this deal.

    They do go from Brighton though Matt so it could help a bit.

    I just booked a few tickets to Brighton. I hadn't realised there is a limit of 2 bookings per person so I got my o/h to book the other two trips I wanted. Two of the return trips cost 1, the other two were 1.25 and 2.50 (for the one next week) - bargain!


    (Tried to book a return for Sunday 30/8 for Gorilla's birthday weekend. There were outgoing cheap fares but nothing for coming back cheap on the Sunday or Monday and I can't really til the Tuesday to be able to come back cheaply as I'll only just have come back from holiday and I can't abandon my o/h straight away in a house full of dirty washing. empty of food etc! If I feel up to it I might still get a normal priced day return or drive down for the day.)

    Wouldn't it still be cheaper to get the bus or train to a 'main' station and then a cheap fare from there? (I'm travelling from a small station and changing trains at East Croydon.)

    Well that took ages, managed in the end though to get tickets for 8.70 that would usually cost 24.60, bargain!

    The websites a pain, only allowing you to do 2 orders a day. It's not like it even works, I just started a new account using Enchantress' name and it accepted it even though it was using my credit card.

    Co-op (Leamington Spa, assumeably other stores too) currently have several household cleaning type products on 2 for 1, including dishwasher tablets (so 40 for under 3).

    I'm extremely pleased to announce that their dishwasher tablets are as good as the Ecover ones - far better than the cr*p Clearspring gel stuff.

    Oooooh, how long is the shelf life on them? I do prefer the tofutti ones, but at 1 a pack, I'm prepared to stock up and deal with the slightly less awesome pure ones.

    I noticed there were some of the old style packs showing 54p on the product, and a load at full price, so I expect the promotion is coming to the end

    All Tilda rice sachets (the microwave ones) are all on offer for 1.00 each at Tesco. I have tried a few but not too happy about using my mico regularly so I have given these a skip this time. They are handy when you are rushing tho' or just really hungry!

    Amoy sensations stir fry sauces are also on offer till 4.8.09
    Thai sweet chilli
    Teriyaki toasted sesame seeds
    Fragrant Thai green Curry
    Few others in the range not sure if all are vegan (2 for 1.18)

    Blue Dragon range is also either half price or money saving.
    Amoy noodles half price (straight to wok) I bought 4 packets!
    Hovis Light and Nutty and Rich & Roasted are two for 2.00 very nice bread
    (the tesco own Oatbranbread is really nice at 95p regularly)
