I bought a Tesco container unit for my front lawn – people say my neighbours must hate me but it was such a good buy | The Sun

PEOPLE are using them for all sorts these days – even to transform them into homes.

But one man came up with a novel use for an old Tesco container unit, and took to TikTok to share his idea.

Jamie posted a video of a lorry transporting the Tesco unit – which he picked up on Facebook Marketplace – to the front of his house.

He then showed what the container looked like in position.

And to make the unit stand out even more, he added LED lights to the bottom of it.

"Best £500 I ever spent, on a Tesco container for storage," he wrote over the clip.

While a third commented: "Looks nice out the front of the house eh," along with a winking face emoji."

"Tell me you live council without telling me," someone else added.

With Jamie hitting back: "Tell me the house is fully bought without telling me."

But someone else insisted Jamie had been ripped off, writing: "£500! I have a field full of these… £100 each!"

"Scrappers in Bolton sell them at like £200 I think they are," another replied.

Others were more complimentary about Jamie's new addition, with one writing: "Looks mint in garden that!"
