Just wondering us I will go there tomorrow to stock up on some things that I need. Are usually buy toiletries, but I'm wondering what other people by. I need to buy bin bags, coffee tea and honey. Can I find nescafé instant coffee jars there? I know they have PG tea. But I've never tried it. Is it any good? Can I find honey there?

I love to buy coloring books and art supplies there as well. They do have some nice stuff. I have also found some books there too.

Yes to honey but be careful, it's sometimes better value in Tesco. I get snacks like club biscuits.

The sun cream is fine just as good as the expensive stuff.

I get multipacks of crisps, some body wash and sometimes bags of sweets.

The colouring books aren't great, they tend to have that thick greyish paper.

Honey, jam, white bread, I don't buy coffee there because I don't drink instant.

Foil trays for doing roast dinners, foil flan tins, plain black hair bobbles / hair pins.

Colouring books/activity books and pencils, crayons and paint for ds.

Good for seasonal stuff too so things like Easter eggs or Christmas decorations

Some things can actually be cheaper in places like Home Bargains eg. hand was, shower gel as they might be 79p or 89p for example and not rounded up to £1 so watch out for that.

Toblerones mostly blush But I also buy coffee pods for my espresso machine and they're good for picking up baking bits too, especially cheap pots of hundreds and thousand type things to decorate with.

The wool is good for baby blankets/crochet toys and washes well (usually on 3 for £2)
Also sanitary towels, I only use body form and its about the only place you can get them for £1 anymore.
All my baking bits are probably from there (cutters, silicone spatula for icing etc)
And the snacks blush

Cake tin liners
Nail Polish
Make up remover wipes
Instant lattes/cappuccinos

Eyebrows, are the instant cappuccinos by Kenco? I think I've had them before. I'm looking for the nescafé gold glass jar though.

Sainsburys has some instant coconut latte and Caramell latte, as well as a really good mocha. Any hope of finding this there?

I try to avoid all of the snacks as I have really bad teeth and have already had to pay for a lot of dental care last month! I did allow myself to buy some Frosty's and rice crispy cereal bars last time I was there. But I try not to look at the chocolate

Lemon Puff biscuits, 2 for £1 at the moment grin

Sweets and crisps. Not always cheaper though!

I was going to say zoflora too - I got a "limited edition" (WHY???) pink grapefruit one in there last time and it's lovely.

Bottles of Pepsi Max to keep in the car for journeys
Kitchen roll
Wild bird food
Sometimes books
Sometimes a CD - if you don't like it, it doesn't matter, it's only a pound
Biscuits for meetings and workshops (work won't pay for them so I do)
Tiny jars of Marmite for holidays
Light bulbs inc. the halogen bulbs for my IKEA lamps - the ones they come with are very short-lived
A dark green liquid eyeliner that I really like

It would seem I like Poundland.

I shall be strong and not ask what lemon puff biscuits are! I shall not! I love lemon. 😂

Millipedewithherfeetup Fri 19-May-17 19:28:02

Do you know that poundland now deliver ! Free delivery if over £50 i think ! If you dont live near one its handy to get together with some friends or family and put an order in ! Feels like Christmas smile

hellokittymania Fri 19-May-17 19:30:38

I'll pretend I didn't hear that millipede! It might be like when I first discovered Amazon. grin

toffeeboffin Fri 19-May-17 19:30:54

I remember Toblerone being dead cheap.

Eminybob Fri 19-May-17 19:32:11

Might not be relevant to you, but OPKs and pregnancy tests. The former are 5 for a quid, and the latter 3.

I just found online pound and another website pound These are two different different shops from pound land aren't they? Or are they related in someway
