I know I probably am BU, but I am stumped, where on earth do I buy on from?

<Disclaimer> I'm clearly a slattern and haven't bought an ironing board for years, covers yes, board no and mine has definitely died.

My choices are;
tesco (not big)
Asda
The Range
Argos
Wilkinsons?

What about electrical shops? Do they sell them?

Or do I drive a bit further for

A bigger Tesco/Asda
Dunlin Mill

I need a ironing board that is good for steam irons, tall people, and preferably wider that a cheap one.

Homebase or B and Q maybe.

All of those places you mention will have them.

Wilkos, good value and would have more choice than a supermarket. Also get an extra long one if you can - much easier for trousers.

I would go to the place you can park right outside. Dunelm or Argos here.

Mine was from Argos. I bought it from there because that's where they had the prettiest covers the closest place that sold them and I don't drive so had to walk home with it.

Did you look like a surfer Ineed? grin

FrustratedSycamoresRocks Sun 28-Apr-13 09:25:58

Can't park outside Argos sad

Sparklingbrook Sun 28-Apr-13 09:27:23

Noooo!! We are spoilt we have an out of town one. In that case the big Tesco.

IneedAyoniNickname Sun 28-Apr-13 09:29:14

Ohhhh, that must be why I got so many funny looks Sparkling! I must have looked like a very lost surfer, wandering around a central town location! Although the canal is only 10 mins away, so I could've been headed there grin

I carried a sledge through town in September Ineed. People can be so rude, grin

FrustratedSycamoresRocks Sun 28-Apr-13 09:33:30

I'm not even sure out Wilcos sells them.

I'd love to have a just out of town shopping place nearby <sigh> everywhere requires driving to.

If I do tesco or asda I can get new school shirt for the DCs too because I successfully managed to dye them a scabby yellow/cream colour yesterday whilst trying to bleach the stains out of them

Sounds like a plan. Now to wait for the shops to open.

FrustratedSycamoresRocks Sun 28-Apr-13 09:34:17

sparkling a sledge? In September? grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 28-Apr-13 09:34:23

Me too. DS2 needs school trousers. Oh joy. sad

FrustratedSycamoresRocks Sun 28-Apr-13 09:35:48

Ah I can get away with school trousers as dc2 can wear dc1s, but the white polo shirts never last long enough to be passed down.

Sparklingbrook Sun 28-Apr-13 09:40:33

DS1 wears 'charcoal' and DS2 'Grey Marl'. Really annoying.

I can't keep the white polo shirts white, the mud at DS2's school must be different.

I got one in Wilkinsons for about a tenner, it's nice and sturdy and has a lovely cover. I don't have much experience of ironing boards, that was the first one I'd bought for myself, so I don't know how it compares to others, but it was reasonably priced. I don't drive and lived on the high street so just carried it home under one arm.
