I always found that creepers with wheels were a waste of space, need a good tug on a spanner and you shoot off out from under. :-D

Maybe should have waited, I knew the right angle chuck thing at under £5 would come up again. Mine cost just over £20 and looks a bit meatier by erbauer, and I have just done a bit of hole drilling through a few floor joists and it worked a treat.

They have some heavy duty car mats in at the minute for IIRC £7. I paid £14 a couple of years ago.
Too mean to buy another set, only one is worn out.

Just bought the way and dry vacuum cleaner from Lidl. Great buy at £29. Car all vacuumed. Nice and powerful and the brush attachment was great for the large flat carpet in the tailgate, its not been that clean since I bought the car. .

Bought some Michelin branded screen wipers from Aldi the other day, £5 each.

Took three attempts as I kept forgetting to measure them.

May fit them one day.

Still haven't fitted mine.
They have had them for £2 in Aldi but I always forget to measure before they are gone.
Can't get in to "shopping centres", limited to Aldi, Lidl, B&M and Home bargains in the main.

Pretty much given up on Poundland, as they've given up serving customers. Even worse than London Lidl's for not having any tills open.
