    large, navy blue, plastic salad servers in the shape of fish, 50p a pair.

    They're quite heavy and relatively flat so you could possibly use them to put nibbles on, not sure how effective they'd be at using them for their proper purpose

    If you had several, you could probably make a nice piece of artwork with them

    Hello annabel, I see where your coming from, your losing £5.00 which is not very moneysaving.

    I went on the stores website, and discovered you can return a item, even if you have changed your mind on condition:

    1. Its within 30 days of the purchasing date.

    2. Its in its original condition.

    3. You have your proof of purchase.

    Make sure also they have a bottle of JD on the shelves.

    here a link for you, good luck and keep us posted

    There are so many reductions in the Home Dept, they're having a huge sale.
    Some of the items I saw were:-

    set of Russian dolls cookie cutters, 90p - v cute

    single nylon piping bag with 6 stainless steel nozzles, 90p

    all of the Tala baking accessories are reduced; some half price, some about 40% off

    one of the Sainsburys baking & kitchen accessories range has all items heavily reduced - like fish turners, ladles, slotted spoons etc.

    Tefal frying pans are, or were, half price - there weren't any left on the shelves but the shelf labels gave the reductions

    lots of heavy gauge baking sheets and roasting pans half price

    flannels, 45p

    cute little cushion and navy blue cover with white embroidered waves & yacht with the words Sail Away - or something like that, £7

    pack of 3 exercise books with a floral theme (makes me think of Ted Baker hues; nudes, mints, mauvey pastels),90p

    hardback metallic journal or notebook, £1.59

    small exercise book with geometric design; part metallic, part flat colour, 65p

    clear pencil cases with geometric print, 45p

    boxed set of 2 ballpoint pens with blue and white abstract design, 90p



    The 'Basics' eggs have new packaging of clear plastic which makes it easier to see if you got a pack of free-range (stamped 1) instead of barn eggs (stamped with a 2) for the same price. I got 15 free-range eggs for £1.35.

    As I've posted before, it's always worth checking if free-range have been substituted, and now you can see through the box

    I’m not sure how big a bargain this is, but Sainsbury’s had some scented candles in glass jars on sale: small for £1.20, large in capped jars £2.50. Clearly old scents they wanted to get rid of, including Pumpkin & Spice (orange packaging, ok), Apple Cedarwood (purple, rank) and Cinnamon, Sugar & Pear (yellow, divine!). My eyeball guestimate is that the small is 150ml, the large is 225ml.

    There was also a clearance shelf of kitchen bits, difficult to assess this for the bargain factor as the shelf had been wiped clean of goods
