    I was in the 99p shop yesterday
    A good place to go for toiletries, cleaning materials and toilet tissue at 99p per item.
    I walked through the food aisles to the till. Past biscuits and cakes by the hundreds. didn't buy any :(
    But did spot a tin of pistchios
    Bought one of those.
    It's an airtight tin and I love them.. I will spin them out over a few days.

    I thought the wall was built to keep us safe from YOU? :)
    My Glaswegian friend kept on about how great Scotland is, so we said 'If it's so good, why are you here?'
    'I'm here for yer money and yer wimmin!'
    And do you know, he's got both! :D

    Google your nearest 99p shop. It's worth the trip.

    We've got the grand total of 3 (count 'em!) pound shops in town and even one down at my mum's local shops! My dad used to love it for his window cleaning supplies :D
