I'm sure every year we point out how no doubt it wont snow at Christmas and that we don't seem to get weather like it used to be. The get white winters, building snowmen and playing in the snow. And truth be told, last year, we had no snow at all.
But that doesn't mean that you shouldn't be prepared.
Now is a great time to go out and stock up on essentials that you may need if we have a bad winter and, even if we don't get snow, there are some things (especially for cars) that need to be bought either way, to stop the cold getting in.
Don't let the cold catch you out this winter, be prepared. From shovels and coal to scrapers and de-icer, Asda has it covered to prepare you for the colder months and ensure you're safe on the roads and warm in the house.
We've got a big snow shovel in the shed that was £8 in Asda, ready for if needed. I has a solid handle and a metal piece at the end of the shovel to help with removing snow and ice from the path. We have stocked up on salt too, 3kg for only £3, as you never know when the snow or ice may hit. I don't really want to go slipping over when heavily pregnant.
Having an extra bag of coal or logs tucked away, if you have an open fire, is essential as in winter you may use more than expected, especially if this cold weather keeps up. And, don't forget if you have a car to make sure that you have de-icer to hand and an ice scraper too, as you cannot be driving with snow or ice on the windscreen.
I think, especially if you have children, or know elderly people who would struggle on their own, then it's best to go out and buy things now, just in case so make sure that you stock up before the weather gets any colder.
All these items and much more are available instore and on the Asda website now.
