Popped into my local branch of 'The Works' whilst I was out shopping today and grabbed 4Mx70cm of clear wrap on a roll for £1.50, even if it's rubbish, at that price it's hardly a loss.

Clear plastic bin bags some local authorities insist you put your recycling in are also good when cut down the sides and opened up they will cover even the largest plans.

if it works the same as florist wrap you’ll be dead chuffed .... nothing sticks to it

Waitrose have some super florists wrap and they will give you a handful for free if you ask nicely.

I use the backing from covering film. It's "free"

Fine if you use film for covering and peel it off in 1 metre sections (I don't).

This stuff is £1.50!

C'mon people, is it really worth the effort of cutting down bags (that you have to buy) and salvaging film backing for £1.50?

Oooodles on eBay. P&P generally cheaper than The Works (£2.99 - £4.99; click and collect £1.99 if order less than £10).

**LINK**

Have to say I prefer clingfilm smiley

Those links are for a metre or less at the headline price, not as cheap at 4m. Yep, they're cheaper if you have to pay P&P but 'The Works' have 530 stores nationwide so if one is local to you it's a no-brainer, they also do other cheap stuff useful to us such as lolly sticks for a quid, craft wire, etc and some nifty wooden storage boxes and drawers worthy of consideration.I always pop in for a gander when I'm passing, they have some interesting books too at giveaway prices.

Plenty of matchsticks! it's the future of model flying until the Chinese decide they want to buy up all the poplar.
