    That 1p change from the 99p shop is such an inconvenience, anyway.

          Orange buckets are 12% smaller than black buckets.

                Yes, the difference between being 14% bigger and 12% smaller can be blamed on Plank and Einstein E = hv :blue thumb: :heehee:

                  10% Off black buckets at B&Q on Wednesdays for over 60's, getting them down to 90p each.

                  You also need to compare the weights of the different size buckets to check what's best value as although one might be larger, it could be thinner and of poorer quality. I use a small cheap fishing balance from the 99p shop for stuff like this.
