Every little helps!

I have always been a massive fan of supermarket shopping (something for the memoirs). Imagine my joy when Tesco (under the brand 'Kipa') became one of the biggest chains here in Turkey.

It's great. I can find brown sauce and 'Value' toilet paper just down the road in Balcova like I could back home in Kingston.

Sometimes, though, Kipa will come up with something subtle that'll make me realise I'm not in Kansas anymore.

Here's a recent promotion that made me do a double-take. Actually, it made me double-take, pick up the flyer, take it home, install a scanner, scan it in and post it up here. You can all thank me later.

Yes, it's a Tesco "Back to the Army" promotion. Full kit bag for 99 Lira. It includes:

  • 1 x Rucksack
  • 3 x T-Shirts
  • 3 x Socks
  • 3 x Underpants
  • 1 x Soap bag (empty)
  • 1 x Bath towel
  • 1 x Hand towel
  • 1 x Soap dish
  • 1 x Dirty/Clean laundry bags
  • 1 x Laundry net
  • 1 x Coat hanger
  • 1 x Sewing set
  • 1 x Boot polishing kit
  • 1 x Bathroom slippers
  • 1 x Toothbrush
  • 1 x Nail clippers
  • 1 x Foot powder
  • 1 x Insoles
  • 1 x Wallet
  • 1 x Padlock
  • 1 x Pocket torch
You've got to just love it. Now, if this promotion ran in Kingston, the store would sell out of flour, sugar and canned meat within minutes.

My (Turkish) husband just told me that shoulder pads are also important for lining your boots.
