And it’s more effective than the hand sanitisers....
We were lucky enough to get a pack of the good old Sunlight Pure Soap from the local Woolsworth - was in the section with the laundry powders etc .... they say this is the best if you can get it
Our supermarket has broken up packs of big roll and bagged them in packs of 4. $1 per roll!
That's actually a good idea. I had to buy a pack of 20 because it's all they had. I feel like a hoarder having that many! I suppose I won't have to worry about finding any more for a while.
Do mean a single length,
double length ,or
If they r single length rolls for a $1 yr being ripped off .
For double length about right
For tripple length it's cheap
We had a (just in case) 4 pack in the car and Thursday back a girl @ the dog groomers said she hadn't had toilet paper for over a week with hubby and 2 little girls so we picked up Theodore from minding went back to the car, grabbed the 4 pack and toook it into .... she became emotional that we had did it ...... Moral is you can help out a stranger or acquaintance should they be caught short and feel good you helped them out guilt gone in a flash
I will definitely be giving some away if I know someone has been caught without any!
Bloody brilliant Bert ,well done.
Normal rolls Chris. We're always ripped off by our local (read owned by people in Jamestown.) Foodland. $7 for a 2l farmers union ice coffee! Why we have days out to Pirie for stocking the cupboards. You can spend $60 on fuel for a day out shopping and save $100+ on your groceries!
Funny thing is when we go to Pirie we can't escape our locals as they are all over there shopping as well!
You think they would wake up to what's going on.
I was down doing some shopping and started to question some of their specials namely dunny paper. If you work out how much is on a roll whether it's single double or triple and then work out the cost of each u will find there is no savings at all or very little.
I saw this sign yesterday. I thought it was so good, I had to stop and take a photo.
So with all the sh!t going down I will share a smile
My son was supposed to get married on the 20th April but that all went down hill.
It wasn’t a big wedding but it was theirs.
We had booked accommodation at the hotel up in the mountains and the place took the money out of our accounts the night before the curtain came down.
Anyway - they dropped by this afternoon to tell us that they are now married.
They did the deed yesterday in their back yard.
Bec’s sister lives next door, the celebrant was their so they made up the 5.
Baldrick and Mia made up the guest list.
Mia put her best red dress on and Baldy wore his tie.
Everyone is happy and I’m over the moon that all the worry is gone.
We eloped in 1991, (19.9.91) after being together for 7 years prior. 5 people at the registry office, us, 2 witnesses and a celebrant.
Last year on 19.9.19, we celebrated our 28th anniversary.
There is a common theory, that the more expensive the wedding, the shorter the marriage will last!
A very large percentage of our town population fit into a few small categories...
Old without the ability to get to other places to do their shopping
Very low income without the ability to get to other places to do their shopping.
Too lazy to go further than the main st to do their shopping.
Not smart enough to notice they're being skun.
Sadly some fit into multiples of these categories.
The supermarket has a captive audience as it's a minimum 40km to the next town (Jamestown). Over 100 to a big centre.
It's not good mate,being skin like that.i would be going up and having my two bobs worth .
I see the Nationals have been cancelled - as if that was a surprise
I think 2020 is a 'write off'.
Dubs By The River 2020 Is still on at this point. Any cancellation will be decided on August 20.
Everyone is invited!
One of the joys of living in a country town Chris. Many good points, a few not so good. Doesn't really effect us, we're able to be mobile and escaping town regularly is a good thing.
