    MickD reacted to StackingItAll in Is anyone here a tightar*e like me   
    I have become a bit of a tightar*e lately not out of necessity but because I want to be. I was looking at annual spends on household items and thought I bet I could make a lot of stuff for a lot cheaper. This then got me started on making products for house like laundry detergent, softner, soaps, cleaning products even the wifes bath bombs. I recon I am up couple hundred plus a month easy by doing it. Yes had to outlay for initial ingredients but because it's all bulk will make enough for long time. Pic is example of some soap

    I will take it for a first pour some mark's on top not sure what they are but not dissapointed.  Went for 11 oz but came out just over 9 with me being careful not to over pour it. This could get addictive

    MickD reacted to samandglove1 in 1 oz Johnson Matthey Silver Bars (still in wrappers)   
    These are extras that I don't need.  The bars are $22 each.  PPFF (no comments) or Venmo accepted for payment. Shipping (in the US) is $4 for less than 5 oz, and $7 for 5+ oz.
     

  10. Thanks

    MickD reacted to BackyardBullion in 100g EU Mint Silver Bars, Triangles, Rounds & Squares!   
    So, most of you know me for my poured silver or ridiculous unboxing videos, but I also love taking photos (especially of shiny things!)
    So, I thought I would share some awesome photos of the 100g EU Mint Bars, Squares, Rounds & Triangles!
    They are all done, winging their way to their new owners as we speak!
    Which shape is your favourite of the bunch!?

    MickD got a reaction from Tn21 in Today I Received.....   
    I took redundancy from RAF in 1994, commuted half my pension for a lump sum, so got a wee bit until I hit 55 when it doubled and was back indexed linked. Not a massive amount but sticking it into AVCs via payroll means I can retire at sixty, if I want, and it'll make up the shortfall in state pension until 67.  So hopefully a few wee trips to Germany/Holland in the future.................
