Ooh a topic I am very keen in!
Absolutely, a pound-shop is a receptacle for all the plastic land fill fodder that's imported from China.
I bought a few lunch boxes from there with the silicon seal so they prevent leakage. Boy was I wrong when my backpack was sodden with olive oil. Bin.
Yep, I hear that - cheapskate landlord. If anything, renting in the UK has made me long for my own house and own preferences to appliances. My landlord has spared every expense when it came to the bathroom, for instance buying the shittiest taps, where you can't even fit your fucking hands under. A shower screen door that is impossible to clean properly, so it's caked with black mold, hiring absolute cowboys when it comes to DIY jobs, again shower, instead of fixing broke tiles, just slap some new grout on it, with another tile! The grout hardens, and creates the perfect environment for mold to attach itself to - absolute nightmare to clean.
It's people like this who have shit for brains, and have indeed no sense of what it's like using the cheapest fixtures and equipment.
I've learned early on that buying the cheapest shit will result in the most expensive in the long run, but at the same time, quality doesn't scale with price, i.e.: you buy a product costing twice as much, is it actually twice a s good? or maybe 1.25 times?
I fucking love being a savvy consumer, and having a small circle of like-minded mates has really been a boon when buying stuff.
