    No sign of the Fox's Biscuits in the Trongate or Argyle Street, Glasgow stores - but I did go a bit crisp and biscuit-crazy :P

    Twin pack of Fox's Melts Viennese Chocolate 2 x 120g, Burton's Fish & Chips Salt & Vinegar 5+2 Free 7 x 25g, Hula Hoops Cheese & Onion 7 x 24g, Paterson's Shortbread Selection 300g.

    Also Argyle Street Poundland has these Plenty Easy Clean Wet Wipes Starter Kit + 30 Large Wipes in Multi-Purpose, Anti-Bacterial and Bathroom varieties (they have a spring cleaning event on).

    Poundland sell foil balloons and fill them, for a further pound. Unfortunately all but the 18s and 21s were out of stock (looked in 2 branches).

    Luckily Cardfair does slightly smaller ones - albeit plain foil ones - for £1.49, which I supplemented with a Peppa Pig one for £2.49. Our 2 yo LO played happily with them this afternoon

    Found the Fox's biscuits in Sauchiehall Street! The date on these is 25/11/17.

    Edit: Also, these are on "special offer" from £4 to £2 at Tesco currently https://www.tesco.com/groceries/product/details/default.aspx?id=289969252 (have to copy/paste the linky, at least on the device I'm using).
    One Amazon review complains about there only being 19 biscuits in the pack (though they paid much more) but for £1 it's still a steal.

    Store-specific but there's a 50p section of randomness in Poundland, Sauchiehall Street, near the self-service section.

    Got my niece a few Turtle Wax items (in tubes, not bottles) Perfect Finish Scratch Remover (in different colours) http://www.turtlewax.co.uk/images/default-source/default-album/_0005_turtle-wax---scratch-remover-fg7288.png?sfvrsn=0 (got my niece Red, but think the other ones were Black?) and Perfect Finish Protect & Shine (didn't seem to be the interior version I can see online - this was for after shampooing the car).

    Also lots of the Keyboard Magnets packs I bought from Poundland eons ago https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0899/2174/products/monster-factory-firdge-magnets-keyboard.jpg?v=1488285276

    Many 2017 annuals, some books.

    Will try to take a photo next time I pass - we were in a hurry! Trying to wrack my brains thinking what else was there - will have to ask her (cloudy brain!).

    Edit: Seems they add extra bits to this 50p section - a variety of Hello Kitty Wall Stickers last time I was there. And St Patrick's Day face paints!

    Argyle Street also has a 50p random clearance section of socks and other odds and sods.

    First visit to a Poundland in ages (Bishop Auckland Retail Park) I spotted espresso and lungo Nespresso compatible capsules - not seen before. Not a brand name (Cafe Deli). Will report on taste and performance.

    Edit: Also spotted 6 pack of Worcester Sauce flavour Walkers French Fries. Have never seen these before - snaffled!

    Following on from the above, I have now tried the lungo coffee capsules (Caffe Deli with 2 fs, looking at the capsule packet rather than my receipt).
    The good news is the capsules work really well, no jamming, a good delivery without spluttering and a good crema.

    I found the flavour of the lungo to be quite weak, but there again, I didn't have huge expectations. These capsules are only 10p each after all. If you have somebody in your house (or a guest) who doesn't like strong coffee, they should love these.

    Mine won't be wasted, I will be using them for mocha coffees with some drinking chocolate mix.

    I like the clip top microwave bowls with handle- great for heating soup, beans veg etc.. They haven't had them in for a while but I managed to get some today. I have seen them in other places for about £3.50.

    Another hair product
    Another find today - Charles Worthington, full size 200ml, Moisture Seal Overnight Ultimate Hair Healer. Currently £6.99 in Boots, though the one from Poundland is in different packaging (silvery box). This is aimed at hair suffering from dryness, frizz or damage to strengthen and can also be used as a 5 minute hair mask if you don't want to leave on overnight. Paraben free and safe for use on coloured hair.

    Poundland should be renamed pounds land, considering the amount of stuff they are flogging over a quid....and some of the stuff cheaper in supermarkets

    I popped into Stratford E20 yesterday evening.

    They had the Fox's biscuits (exp Nov 17) in but not the magnets. Its not difficult to walk out the shop with nothing rather than continue impulse shopping, because the long (albeit fast-moving) queues are a such a deterrent.

    Here's a pic of the 50p Section in Argyle St, Glasgow (should take a photo of the Sauchiehall St one!). Seems to change here and there.

    Wedding Post Box, Wedding Invitation Cards, Cupcake Tablecover, 10 Cupcake Wrappers, 2 x Cupcake Banner Set, Farm Puppets (some sort of hand puppet!), Disney Captain Jake & the Neverland Pirates Invites, various sunglasses, reading glasses, Top Gear Stig On Board sign, Pirate Cupcake Shack, Pirate Tablecover, Disney Cars Inflatable Swim Ring, 8 x Black/Blue Pens, Brass House Numbers, Party Favours, some sort of turquoise/green corduroy rucksack-type bags (swim bags maybe)?, rolls of Loveheart Garlands (must be from Valentine's), Top Trumps cards, PC CD-ROMs - look quite basic though, Disney Planes stickers? I think, Jigsaw Puzzles, Dr Miriam Stoppard Your Antenatal Care books, a few nail varnishes.

    Also a bundle of socks tucked away at the bottom! A few fishing items on the bottom-right, near the girly sunglasses, but can't tell what they are (no expert, sorry!).

    Probably missed out a few items but that's what I can make out!

    The full-size jpeg (if anyone wants to zoom in and squint at it) is here http://i.imgur.com/RhC9zzD.jpg
