This Bank Holiday is your big opportunity. You have one whole day free, to kick-start those projects you have been meaning to get around to.

And to make the process even more rewarding, we have the freebies you need to get on the right track.

However, even if you just buy the paper and throw it away, it's cheaper than the £51.50 price on the gate - and better value than the two-for-one that tend to crop up.
