This is a question Cheap Tat

OneEyedMonster remindes us about the crap you can buy in pound shops: "Batteries that lasted about an hour and then died. A screwdriver with a loose handle so I couldn't turn the damn screw, and a tape measure which wasn't at all accurate."

Similarly, my neighbour bought a lawnmower from Argos that was so cheap the wheels didn't go round, it sort of skidded over the grass whilst gently back-combing it.

What's the cheapest, most useless crap you've bought?

There was a special offer in tescos.
Just after christmas, A bag of clementines for 5p.

Not wanting to turn down an offer such as this, we took full advantage.

'I like this'. It helps you get the ladies. Or men. Or both if your lucky.

We later bought 56 tubs of cream, Came to about a fiver. Seemed a great deal.

Useless...?
Might be worth looking for clementine marmalade/jam/etc. recipes...

My girlfriend occasionally despairs when I arrive home with huge quantities of very cheap bananas/apples/whatever, but they (usually) get converted to chutney or jam (before too many of them have started going mouldy, anyway).

Only thing I can think of for the cream is maybe making fudge - though whether 56 batches of fudge are any less useful than 56 tubs of cream I'm not sure.

Oooh, I like this one.
Gets a click and a boat-load of frozen orange juice.

markets
are great for stuff like this.
at the end of the working day the traders invariably flog a box of stuff for a quid or so.
