Very boring - but can anyone tell me .....

Asda had them the last time I was in

JoolsToo Sun 17-Apr-05 15:51:20

purpleturtle Sun 17-Apr-05 15:51:39

i'm sure i've seen them in hombase - but haven't been there in the last few weeks.

Lawsons (v useful site) have the Addis ones online for £4.29. You can get cheaper ones but IME they are less robust.

jampots Sun 17-Apr-05 16:41:31

Im sure our local discount type store does things like that

JoolsToo Sun 17-Apr-05 16:54:40

Thanks Jan - I do want something that is going to be strongish - it's for the boot of the car and will be having muddy walking boots chucked into it regularly!

Also want to use one as a washing basket that I can fold and put away (only 2 of us now so don't need a huge one) - not much room in the new gaff

I will check to see if I can get Addis in the stores - if not I'll use this site.

Jools I know you are retired now but no need to go all boring about plastic boxes

Can you tell I'm bored? Analysing interviews of kids testing inhalers - yawn.

IKEA stock these, we have a few of them and use them for laundry. Can't remember how much they were but seem to think it was around £2. I think they only stock blue.

i have a set of three of these - i got them from woolworths about 3 yrs ago. don't know how much help that will be!

finally got my fold down boxes from Wilkinsons in black £1.69 each - bargain.

bet you've all be dying to know that

Louise1980 Mon 23-May-05 13:35:20

I got some from poundstretcher and some from lidl.

roisin Mon 23-May-05 13:38:29

JT have you been to my town and not told me?

JoolsToo Mon 23-May-05 14:04:21

roisin! as if!

the boring story is - we and our friends (across the road) hired a van to ship some unwanted furniture to our offsprings in Manchester so called at Wilkinsons (Stretford) and Ikea (Warrington) there's a lot more to that day than you'd want to hear - let's just call it the battle of the bed - nightmare!
