I'm placing a click and collect order for a large item of furniture. What are all of the smaller bits and pieces I'd pick up if I was walking through the gates of hell store? Browsing online just isn't the same.

The amazing frozen chocolate cake which slices from frozen so you can cut a slice off and eat it right away, standing by the freezer, before the kids catch you

Last time I went for big stuff, I also ended up buying a plant, bag clips, a toy pizza for my nephew's Christmas present, a candle in a lovely jar, red tea lights, cupboard organiser shelf thingies and orange daim probably want ALL of those things.

Paper napkins, mini Daim bars, freezer bags, tea lights, bag clips, those storage boxes that are just the right size for vinyl albums and the cardboard things you can store paperwork in and hide it all on a bookcase.

I've just bought Christmas paper at such a ridiculously cheap price I'm certain it is crap and will have disintegrated by Christmas Eve. Looks nice for now mind grin
