Music festival season is approaching, and if you're masochistic enough to camp in a tent for days amid all sorts of debauchery, you'll need a sleeping bag. The Vango Ultralite 600 Regular will keep you toasty. If you can't afford it, please don't take the approach that a man known to this column is said to have taken - going to the festival with nothing except the clothes on his back and stealing everything he needed.
Best: €87.12, The Scout Shop Ireland
Hmm: €99.95, Charles Camping
Save: €12.83 - enough to buy an extra six-pack of beer
Prudence is every finance minister's favourite word. Sometimes they don't practise what they preach, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be prudent too. Getting travel insurance is very prudent - who knows what could go wrong? Price is for annual worldwide multi-trip cover.

Hmm: €49, VHI Multitrip
Save: €22.05 - enough for a nice meal in a nice restaurant
Man vs nature - life's great battle. The neighbours are complaining because your unkempt hedge is ruining their carefully manicured garden. But man can defeat nature using a machine born of his unmatched brainpower - the Bosch AHS 52 Li Accutrim. That hedge doesn't have a hope.
Best: €137.98, handyhardware.ie
Hmm: €149, John's DIY
Save: €11.02 - enough for a pint when the work is done
