Instead I had to buy my own kit.
|Back-, butt- and buck-saver|
I'd always suspected that those who spend around £100 on an office chair will feel the benefit. Now I am sure.
It might look like something you'd see in the dentist's surgery, and it is probably too space-consuming for those who perch at a desk in the corner of cramped living quarters, but if you have the room this is a back-saver.
I struggle to imagine that if I spent £800 I'd be sitting even twice as comfortably.
I only wish I had taped myself assembling it. That farce would surely have gone viral on YouTube, earning me numerous lucrative sponsorship deals...
|Blue Spark: Energy drink|
of penny-pinching champions
Neither of these drinks hold any interest for me now.
What about the new 'Limited Edition' Red Bull drinks? They are, it is to be hoped, very limited because they actually beat Emerge for tasting horrible.
The discovery of the month, however, is Tesco's new Blue Spark energy drink.
Blue Spark is half the price of KX, the previously cheapest option at UK supermarket Tesco. KX is a strong contender in my book, being inexpensive, quite effective and with a flavour that nearly escapes the realms of unpleasantness.
Blue Spark has, on the face of it, identical ingredients to KX and I can't tell much difference in the taste, if indeed there is a difference.
But it only costs 35p a tin. Now that's a five-star budget-buy winner!
