Yes, but now that Environmental Guilt is so ubiquitous that I'm finally succombing to it, I have these weekly battles between (a) let the child have the cheap ata, it keeps him happy and costs so little, and (b) What about the planet? Oh, and (c) I s'pose I should say No to him every now and then, just for the principle of the thing.

Where I live (a few years ago officially one of the ten most deprived areas in England; not sure if it still is, but not far off), every second shop is a pound shop. It does make me laugh when I see how much posh people pay for pans.

That would be tat, not ata.

I went in to a pound shop recently to but some cheap prizes for something at school. I was actually amazed at some of the stuff in there. I cannot beleive you can make, package and transport the stuff and sell it for a profit at just 99p.
