I spend quite a bit in B&M Bargains, a lot of things are short dated but usually cheaper than the supermarkets. I buy the big tins of Ye Olde Oak Rustic Chicken & Pasta Soup, also the Rustic Pork and Lentil Soup - these are both sold at 59p - instead of the £1.49 as stated on tin. Today I also picked up a Chinese Savoury Rice from there - 25p, which is even cheaper than Aldi.

Never posted on here before - hope this ok.:)

    I recently found IAMS cat food in B & M, 800gsm for £3.99, compared with £4.49 in T*sco. Home [email protected] is also worth a look.

    a new one has recently opened near me taking over the old homebase store
    pretty good selection of items and good prices compared with the big 4 & good you dont see as well a bit like home bargains

  • They've taken over a big Homebase store near me as well.
    Was quite happy with what I bought there, but its a bit of a fiddly bus journey to do regularly.

    There's one just 2 miles from me. When I've gone in I've always come out with some great buys - things on my "to get/cheap" list.

    Last time I was in there I picked up a couple of cans of Goblin Irish Stew, about 60p/can. It's tasty and does for two meals, served with a bread roll as if it's a soup. I've also used these as a base for a quick stew/dumps.

    I can't remember what else I got.

    I don't buy much food, so don't see the need to make a special trip there (50p of fuel + the cost of other temptations while out).

    They do Kernel King peanut butter which I am addicted to, 340g for 59p. Also a large sweet chilli sauce for 99p we like and crosse and blackwell noodles at 39p are nice too.

    We regularly look in both B&M and Home Bargains. We usually manage to find something interesting.

    OH recommends the pickled onions which I think was from B&M with peppercorns in the vinegar.

    Food wise I can think of tea, tinned meat and fish, soup and jam which they tend to have a lot of. Sometimes they have promotional items which are old stock as well.

    Same here. We've got a newish Home Bargains but I only pass it on the way to my hairdresser every 6 weeks or so. So I call in then and invariably they have a few bargains (well they would wouldn't they?;)). Bacon is good for £1, cheese can be good value, limited veg but often good quality, Flora is regularly £1. Always worth a browse.

    wht i like about B&M & Home Bargains is that they dont try and con you into thinking your getting a deal , they have multibuy deals yes but none of the supermarket ones like when something was £2 last week and its now a quid

    They are also very good at end of season selling off garden stuff - seeds from 10p per pack, plants from 20p each etc - this was a few weeks ago - but more recently they have been selling garden canes for 20/50p per pack depending on the type of canes.

    Pepsi and Coca Cola can also work out cheaper than supermarkets.
