50p wrapping paper at Asda for disorganised men. Leaving it until the last minute pays!

62
Found 24th Dec 2011
Wide selection of 5 metre and 10 metre rolls of wrapping paper. Was previously 3 for £5 now 50p a roll which seems like a decent deal to me. I was told by my girlfriend that buying wrapping paper at 9.30pm on the 23rd of December was ridiculous (as she bought and wrapped all of her presents sometime in late November). I now, however, feel vindicated as I have saved some money which I will spend on beer instead. I can also afford twice as many rolls for those inevitable wrapping mistakes that I will make (being male and all that) ... and, to be honest wrapping all my gifts on Christmas Eve evening puts me in the festive spirit. It's like a tradition.
Anyway, there were loads and loads of rolls on the shelf in Oldham and Shaw branches along with very cheap crackers, ribbons and large amounts of other Christmassy paraphernalia.
Have a good one folks.

and the shop is lol
Hell, if I'm not going to see people before the big day, I do my shopping for their presents in the post xmas sales

They don't have to know, and a gift is a gift, being half price doesn't make it any worse.
i buy my presents throughout the year, but mostly in oct/nov/early dec

Very sexist deal title. Offensive!
It's 80p for 8m at Wilkos anyway...
A tip for all those skin-flints, use old newspapers or magazines (call it decoupage) for Christmas wrapping. Otherwise used aluminium foil from pre-Christmas cooking is perfect, and adds a bit of celebratory smell and spice to the wrapping. If you haven't got any spare paper, look in the public bins for discarded sweets, toilet paper, and boxes and make a collage wrapping. Don't forget beggars can't be choosers so if find any edible discarded food, collect it up as it could be perfect for the Christmas meal. Lastly encourge the kids to particiapte if required and don't forget any glass bottles found, take them back to the Off-License and use the money to spend on your partner. A heart felt gift from the Off-License or Petrol station is always welcome.

Just think all all the trees that would still be up if the world just said things like "Happy Christmas/Easter/Valentines/Birthday" etc. Such a shame & waste

You make me laugh.
As a man, this thread title has left me so, so angry and insulted!!. Yet again perpetuating negative gender stereotypes about men being disorganised and leaving things to the last minute. Anyway, can't sit at home and sulk, still have all my xmas shopping to do.
I resemble that sexist remark!
Doesn't Santa usualy look after this sort of thing?
I'd rather cut my arms off than go anywhere near any shops today!
Wait until after Christmas. I bought enough of the stuff at 10p/roll from Homebase to last a lifetime.
heat added for the use of paraphernalia - very funny post!
sexist bloody woman,shouldnt you be peeling spuds by the sink???
Still using the hundreds of rolls I bought for pennies after xmas 2 years ago! (from Tesco & Homebase)
Cheaper than bog roll and smears just like old school loo roll. Hot!
This man bought 10 rolls x 10m last year for 10p each....lovely jubbly! :o)

A tad too far me thinks.
There's nothing disorganised about prioritising *Christmas* in the latter part of December. What kind of airhead would do anything else? Haven't you folks got lives to live? :-)
great now all i need is a present
Thanks! Hopefully they have a few presents too. I left it all too late and now my girlfriend is getting bukaroo from asda for a tenner This would be funny if it wasn't true.
Actually I take that back! Bukaroo is awesome. I'd be happy if someone bought me a bukaroo.
no bad price but i got some from tesco
2 metres for 15p & 3 for 2 as well, so 6 metres for 30p

I think it was an honest mistake of her skimming the title and missing asda cos we are so used to seeing the @ sign :P
If anybody knows of any reasonable wrapping elves in the Newcastle area please PM Me!

I know someone who does this, although without the used part! Swears by it, says it looks nice and you don't even need sellotape.

Thats a top tip right there! 12m of wide aluminium foil is 89p at Home Bargains all year round.:D

lol yep, I agree I think I'm very organised, it's just the women in my life who don't seem to agree... and, to be fair there were about 15 guys buying the wrapping paper when I was queueing up at the checkout... maybe they were buying it for their wives / girlfriends???
Anyway, I think I bought about 80% of my presents after seeing deals on here so I'm eternally grateful to this site and the community who uses it... Only been on for a month and I'll never go back!
Thanks to all and have a fantastic Christmas... Off to wrap my presents... told you men were organised!
Going to plug my deal - £1 for a full Christmas set - hotukdeals.com/dea…296
