    Huge thanks to millsymuttleylaugh and all the MoneySavers who contributed to this thread for their amazing work.

    Now back to the original post …

    I was wondering if we can start a Wilkinsons thread, theres quite a lot of bargains to be had in there

    I find the sponges are good quality only 19p each
    Flannels are also cheap (not sure on price)
    Individual dish clothes are only about 5p each

    Always alot of offers on Shampoos, conditioners and other toiletries

    Hair colour by leading brands cheaper than Boots or Superdrug (usually)

    Good deals on dog food

    I'll add more to it when I've been for another look around

    Thought I'd post again to keep this thread up there.

    On monday in my local wilkinsons they had alot of packs of Cif cleaning wipes reduced to about 50p I think, must be the end of the stock because they were just on a shelf end with red stickers on them

    Noticed Sanex deodorant was only 84p a can, cheaper than Asda etc

    What a great thread, thanks OP for starting it.

    I bought a Wok yesterday as the one we had practically had no bottom left in it!

    Anyway it was a bargain price of 3.47! It's 28cm size and they have two available at the same price, the one I got was the one with "Casa" branding on it which has a more robust looking base. It looks to be great quality and has some new Xylan coating. Time will tell how well it performs...

    Has anyone tried their frying pans? They have one with a lid for 9.99 which I'd like to get but just wondering how well they clean and last with use

    Many thx

    I love Wilkinsons for garden stuff like seeds, seed trays, pots etc. I buy my compost in Morrisons usually, and so I very rarely need to get anything from the local garden centres which are generally overpriced (and often full of non-garden related tat)

    Can any of you Wilko's regulars tell me if it's worth a visit for me to get some arty bits? I need:

    Sketch book
    Pencils of various hardnesses / thicknesses
    Colour pencils
    Drawing pens
    Graph paper

    If not, any suggestions welcome......

    TIA

    We do also sell graph paper quite cheaply, it's worth just having a look in the stationary aisle yourself, it's not that big of a section so you will easily find your way around

    Haha apologies, you are right, it's the Cream-red, and Cream-blue 2kg bags of Wagg dog food, we only sell Winalot in tins

    Have to disagree with you on the offer finish times though, Pets is FMCG and that changes next week, still got Bird food on offer i believe! Cleaners and Toiletries FMCG also changing next week as i've seen the stock come in on Wednesday as it usually does, offers might go live after trade on Saturday or Tues/Weds of next week!

    Poundland = 700g for 100p (8pk)
    Wilko = 720g for 97p (2*4pk)

    I got some of this today, normally costs about 7-8 for that sized bottle, but it's down at 3.97 at the moment which is a bargain considering the smaller 18 wash bottle is still 4.50ish!!!!
