I've tried the ready-made Slimfast shakes over the last few weeks and they're a pretty tasty way of grabbing a non-junk-food lunch on the go.
I thought I might save some money by making my own Slimfast shakes, hence my purchase of Slim Fast Milkshake Powder.
I made the first one with Soya Almond milk (we have lots of that in the house, and it's got less calories than normal milk). Come lunchtime, I had the shake, and it tasted like ass. I mean, it really did taste incredibly bad.
I put this down to the soya Almond milk (it can give things a strange taste sometimes), but I've tried normal Soya milk and also real cow's milk, and the same thing - it tastes… Read more
Bought this as I was fed up of paying to top my tyres up at garages and worked out it would pay for itself in a while.

Needed a small amount of anti-slip paint for our steel spiral staircase - the original rubber covering had worn out and the steps were becoming slippy in socks.
This tin was the perfect size for a couple of coats of the stairs and a bit left over too.
It's like a rubbery clear varnish with grit in the solution, I thought it would dry rubbery but it hardens to a solid lacquer with the grit offering the non-slip element.
It's pretty unobtrusive and does the job well - it's appears to be long-lasting too which is a bonus.
According to the tin you can also use it on slippy outdoor steps too.
