I have noticed those smaller packets come in boxes of multiples. Not a recommendation, just an observation.

Here's a thought - is it ok to say, "I have a set of [insert out of date but serviceable equipment] going spare, anyone know a deserving home that may or may not be you?"?

Good job the packets only contain a few biscuits, at least as far as my waistline is concerned.

Waiting for the mods to consider the idea but from my POV no reason not to, a friend of a fellow forumite is an honorary friend of mine too.... It's getting unused stuff back into use that matters.

I'm only one of the mods, but I personally think that's a very laudable emboldened goal too! :thumbup:
