A proper tight bastard has saved 50p off his wrapping paper for next Christmas, by buying it all this week.
Local man, Peter Thape saw the irresistible reduced offer on all wrapping paper, and filled his boots.
Thape saved nearly 50p in total, but now has the problem of storing the paper for 12 months without it getting discovered or damaged.
‘Now I’ve got to make sure I live for the whole 12 months,’ said Thape.
‘If I die, I’ll never see that 50p benefit come back,’ he added.
