    Poundworld bargains 11th Jul 15 at 2:33 PM
    Sorry if another thread - couldn't find and couldn't see these posted. My local Poundworld has Ted Baker men's body spray and antiperspirant, oos on Boots www but £4.07, Aussie 3 minute miracle reconstrutor, cheapest is 3 for £10.00, Panete Age Defy Advanced Thickening Treatment, £9.99 in Boots and Samy fat hair dry shampoo, £5.99 for 6ozs in Superdrug, think one I got 5 ozs. HTH

    Official MoneySavingExpert insert Tue 14 Jul: Poundworld told us most of the above items are available in most Poundworld stores throughout the UK, and are all priced at £1, but couldn’t tell us how long for. Be quick if you want to grab one.

    Thanks to derms for sharing this offer.

    I was in Poundworld today, quite a few 'brand name' things caught my eye:

    Little packs of Just Brazils, dark and milk.

    Multipack bags of Kettle Chips 5 x 28g, salt and vinegar.


    Teabags - Tetley, PG Tips x 80.

    Lotus biscuits 'as seen in hotels'.

    Huge range of Minions merchandise including boxed Minion mugs that are small enough to use with Nespresso machines.

    The usual Toblerones.

    Lots of 350ml Palmolive Naturals range shampoos and conditioners
    400ml Alberto Balsam s & c

    How is 5 bags of 28g a bargain at a pound when you can get 10 bags of 27g for £1 in ALDI, I know they are Kettle but really once you scoff them you just want another packet and at least with ALDI you have 5 more in cupboard saying "eat me, eat me". Is why I tend not to buy potato snacks, if you buy them you eat them. Best diet advice is to not buy them in the first place.

    Biscuits is Tesco and Aldi start at 0.24p, fancy onces around 40p so paying a pound for a brand that is not really all that and probably makes the buscuits for ALDI anyway,

    I see Tetley offers like that in Supermarkets, I did try a non brand in Poundworld, began with a D and was 160 bags I think. Everyone I give it comments it is good.

    I think ALDI has shown that they can provide their own brand and are usually just as good as main brands, if not you nip over and get that item from LIDL. For example Jelly babies @ 59p ALSO ones have too much powder (sugar) and are too big, LIDL are same price, less powder and they are smaller, so they go further.

    Now WHY did you have to mention the Just Brazils!!

    I am a total Aldi addict, I said they caught my eye, but I didn't buy them!
    Sadly we don't have a Lidl locally but 95% of what I buy is from Aldi. I'm planning another Poundworld visit soon but not so near to closing time this time, so I can have a good root round.

    my local had foaming handwash in.

    The dispensers are worth the £1 as you can then refill them yourself using your own choice of handwash. It saves money as you only need a small amount of handwash to water.

    In Argyle Street, Glasgow Poundworld earlier - Minions Lunchbox - approx 20cm x 20cm and Seven Seas Essentials Evening Primrose Oil & Starflower Oil Capsules x 60.

    Receipt here: http://i.imgur.com/C4Pob7B.jpg?1

    Edit: Poundworld describe it as a "lunchbag" which I guess it is, as it has a carry handle on top.

    Picked this up from Argyle Street, Glasgow, at the weekend , sorry for the late addition. Sis made me go back and get her more.

    They're in the "Branded Cosmetics" strip packs, if that helps.

    Wasn't able to get a photo of this (as I usually do) as she took them home with her!

    Shade 35 Pearl Beige is quite pale, not the palest but reasonably so. Around £5-8 online elsewhere. No idea if there's more shades available, but my store only had this one (35 Pearl Beige) - sis made me buy a few!

    PS - Found the receipt, days later http://i.imgur.com/Iewscww.jpg?1

    From Poundworld, Argyle Street, Glasgow, not long ago - Minions Temporary Tattoos (x 14) and Furby Mash 'Ems.

    This Poundworld also has the 250ml Aussie Body Washes - Mega Watt, which comes with Australian Ginseng Extract and Fresh Mate which has Eucalyptus Extract.

    I picked up the Beach Berry Body Wash variety called Morning Miracle from Poundland recently.

    Picked this up from Argyle Street, Glasgow (alas only saw one) -

    I've bought Sally Hansen Hard As Nails for years (which is more of a pink-tinged gloss base/top coat), but I actually prefer the brush on/dry in formula.

    There's also Nutra Nail Cuticle & Nail Butter https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nutranail-Nailsentials-Cuticle-Nail-Condition/dp/B00BLVSUE0 and Nutra Nail Cuticle Remover https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nutranail-Nailsentials-Cuticle-Remover-25/dp/B00BLVSTVE

When I reached the consultants recommended weight, I went into a jewellers and bought a watch with a non-expanding metal strap. I then got the assistant to remove links until from the strap until it fitted perfectly. Now, if I put on about 7 pounds, the watch will not fasten and after being extra good before I go on holiday, the watch slips right down my wrist. However, after the holiday like now, my watch is a little too tight so it's back to the diet again.

    Saw plenty of these in Poundworld Argyle Street, Glasgow earlier - Collection Cover & Go Foundation & Concealer Duo in 2 Light, 35ml.
    Review: http://sabshernandez.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/cover-and-go-with-collection-cosmetics.html (she's not reviewing that shade, though)

    Also lots of NYC Liquid Eyeliner 5ml, Black, stocked up a while ago from there but can always do with more! (Comes with a brush, not a plastic nub which I hate so much on cheaper liquid eyeliners). Loose in the purple strip packs this time.
    http://www.nikkietutorials.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/NYCLiner02.jpg

    Also, another growth activator formula (not that impressed with the Nutra Nail one so far), Kiss X-treme Growth Activator 13ml. Seems it's a base coat or top coat - prefer the dry-in ones but we'll see! http://www.wholesaledavinci.com/images/P/N08KS-KTR16F.jpg

    Funnily enough, after me mentioning it a few posts ago, they have lots of Sally Hansen Hard As Nails in the strip packs too, maybe I should just stick with old faithful!

    One I used to buy years ago was Nailoid Nail Hardener (brush on/dry in), a pink clear liquid, though it used to make my nails sting a little and had a strong chemically smell - it really did work. Don't know if it's available any more.

    As for diet tips - I've been doing this nearly 18 months now - alternate 500 calorie days. Make it a lifelong endeavour (I plan on cutting down the fast days once I'm at my goal) and it will work

    *Was in the store earlier - they also have Spiced Apple and Savour The Season Yankee Simply Home Tarts, similar colours so I didn't realise yesterday!
