The price of RawlPlugs-WallPlugs!!!
 
Incredible.
In the last 2 days I have been to Placemakers & Bunnings to buy some simple rawlplugs.
The prices are ridiculous.
In Placemakers they were about NZD30 for 100 really small ones. that is 30 cents each!!
In Bunnings for a pack of 10 they were $5.71!! That is 57 cents each or about 22p each!!
In UK I could buy 100 of the same small ones for about 60p!
Does anyone know in Auckland or preferably the North Shore where one can buy decent priced DIY accessories such as wall plugs, screws, nails, bolts etc etc??

Maybe you have then lol we grew a load last year and wish I'd frozen loads cos in the summer they're dirt cheap.
We've just planted some more in this rental and Im going to dig the veggie garden over this week and get that going.

I grew a few cucumbers too but I don't think I watered them enough cos their ends shriveled up!
