    Seeing as the old thread was some 18 months old, I thought it best to start a new thread to keep the finds valid.

    Poundland Co.Durham 31/03.
    My browser has spat its dummy out and won't let me quote your post LouLou.

    The Bishop Auckland Retail Park Poundland had a totally different range of 50p reductions. Children's toys mostly - 12" dolls, doll outfits, plastic swords.

    Also spotted (at £1):

    'Fairy' branded dishcloths, sponge cloths (3 pack), teatowels.

    Large rectangular packs of Italian crackers, 500g, 16 packs of 5 crackers, that snap into two smaller square crackers. Taste a bit like Ritz but not as salty. They were lunch.

    3 items for a quid snack range had 250 ml branded tins of drinks, 330ml ditto, Lees' macaroon bars for a sugar rush, and Topics. Plus Pringles mini cans pm 59p.

    I got the espresso 'Caffe Deli' Nespresso capsules. Tried them. Worked perfectly. A very mild coffee, good for those who don't like bitter coffee. Very long use by - Oct. 2020.

    100g jars of Lyons decaff and ordinary instant coffee.

    Quite a few Marvel clothing items for children - Spider-Man 'footlets', wash-mitts.

    Spanx type ladies' knicks, but only in small, suspect these go fast.

    There were some very cute ceramic lambs covered in a woolly fleece with the Easter stuff near the tills. May have been a money box.
    Unusual chocolate plaques, large, egg-shaped? Had honeycomb, broken mini eggs swirled in.

    Christmas shortbread tree hanging biccies. Santa and tree shapes. 150g for 25p. Debating varnishing a couple with PVA. Don't taste that thrilling..!

    The branch I went into today had loads of non-food Easter items at 1/2 price, i.e. 50p. I bought a couple of craft kits which we can do together when she gets a bit more dextrous (decorate-your-own finger puppets for next year, and a knit-your-own woollen chick for 2019).

    From Trongate, Glasgow. Monster High Vinyl Figure, Count Fabulous (other varieties available). Not sure what else is out there!

    Google suggests there may be more interesting ones out in the wild: https://www.google.com/search?site=&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1280&bih=635&q =monster+high+8%2B+vinyl+figure&oq=monster+high+8% 2B+vinyl+figure&gs_l=img.12...1777.1777.0.2548.2.2 .0.0.0.0.414.414.4-1.1.0....0...1ac..64.img..1.0.0.0.AII986PYl50

    Are pedestal mats still a "thing"? If they are, Sauchiehall Street Poundland has them, in Black, Turquoise, White and Beige.
    However, I can see a post on HUKD a few months back saying their store sold them for 50p, in Pink (really hard to tell from the tiny photo if it's exactly the same item) http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/pedestal-mat-50p-poundland-2622283

    Also, in Union Street, some nice summer things for the kids, but over £1 -

    Disney Princess Swimming Costumes (sizes seem to run from sizes 3-4 up to 7-8 as far as I could see) £4, Paw Patrol (Swim?) Shorts £3, Spider Man (Swim?) Shorts £3, Justice League Cotton Shorts £3 (no Wonder Woman motif, bah), My Little Pony Cotton Shorts £3, My Little Pony/Disney Princess Play Suits (from what I can tell) £5, Avengers Cotton Joggers £5, Paw Patrol Short Pyjama Set £3, Despicable Me Short Pyjama Set £3.

    A beach bag, beach towels and a Superman Robe on the bottom but can't remember what price they were.

    Full size jpeg to zoom in on, here: http://i.imgur.com/AyHhrRR.jpg

    Edit: (Woops, missed out the top row of my photo - Paw Patrol T-shirt - Girls' or Boys' varieties £2, My Little Pony T-shirt, £2, and - I assume, an Avengers' T-shirt, photo is cut off at the right).

    Mentioned this on Hotukdeals yesterday http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ginsters-original-cornish-pasty-227g-half-price-was-1-50-now-75p-tesco-2668208?p=30688912 but may interest those who like Ginsters products.

    A few of my local Poundlands regularly sell twin packs of their Steak Bakes and Cornish Pasties.

    Naively I assumed they were regular size, but they're not, more like 60% compared to the full size - took a picture of the Poundland twin pack and a single pack (currently on Half Price offer for 75p in Tesco) together.

    The Poundland Pasties are 324kcal versus the Tesco Pasty's 566kcal.

    I know the phenomenon of Poundland selling undersized packs compared to their competitors isn't exactly news, so maybe only me that's just noticed this particular one!

    To be fair, the Poundland twin packs are still decent value.

    Yes, about 57% according to weight but I would expect a higher proportion of the smaller ones to be pastry rather than filling.
