Oily Rag Mailbag

We thought it worth repeating, for the sake of the frugal festivity lovers, the discovery made by the oily rag research team some time ago.

Fun and Frugality

The air is abuzz with anticipation and high expectation as the nation counts down the sleeps to the starting whistle in what will be six weeks of whistles and wails, cheers and chortles, and roads clogged with campervans and lost tourists.
