In the 1970s a power cut meant no telly, radio or lights… and that was more or less it. In the days before central heating was common, along with thousands of others my Mum blundered around pitch black supermarkets with lighted candles stuck to her shopping trolley to show her the way. Today it just wouldn’t be allowed – talk about a health and safety nightmare!
These days when the electricity goes pear shaped, we’re in much deeper poop. We’re incredibly gadget hungry and life feels very strange without them. C’est la vie. But we love our gadgets and appliances, and they’re remarkably cheap compared to back then. Here’s a bunch of technology and appliances discount codes to help you stock up on first class gadgetry for less!
