    As the old one seemed to have a mind of its own and kept nipping off to the It's Gone board, I think it's time for a new thread.

    Please share your Home Bargain finds by posting below.

    The old thread can be found HERE

    Home bargains are stuffed to the rafters with nice stuff atm. Seen a lot of people positively writing up their ice cream range of accessories - cups, cushions etc, if that's your thing.

    They have LOVELY sets of 100% brushed cotton ladies PJs in a wide variety of prints for £10. I don't think you can really go wrong, although I haven't tried them so can't comment on fit.

    Disney Ladies Nightshirts - Mickey & Minnie £5.99

    Dettol Spray 750ml large size £1.49 ea

    Lots of Easter eggs at very competitive prices, including Reese's bunnies. And the new Reese's pieces cups 3 for £1.20.

    Silver Spoon caster sugar 1kg, 79p. About half the price of the supermarkets! Need to go back and stock up.

    Pledge Clean and Dust Multi-Surface Spray - classic or jasmine 99p.

    Simple eye make-up remover £1.89, next cheapest is currently Sainsbury's on offer at £2

    I could go on....

    There’s a new range of bath salts come on, in a fancy looking tub. A coconut one, charcoal one, Himalayan salt one, etc. 1.99 each. I’ve been using the coconut bath salts, and they work like Epsom salts but moisturise too!

    Dentinox teething gel 89p, £1.50 elsewhere, cheapest atm Waitrose £1 on offer.

    Full sugar San Pellegrino 6 packs £2.99, Lemon and Mint

    Italian Pasta Berruto 1881 Gluten free pasta 95p per bag, is always at least £1.20 per bag in supermarkets for their own brand which has nasty emulsifiers added
    https://www.pastaberruto.it/pages/1881_GLUTEN_FREE/109

    Lots of lovely Reese's seasonal items; pumpkins 39p each - I've seen going for 2 for £1 elsewhere and sometimes £1 each!

    Also Reese's sets - Christmas trees Kingsize double packs (think they were 89p) and 6 packs £1.99 (6 packs work out better value for money) and Reese's Peanut Butter Set only £4.49, items bought separately would cost about £6 I estimated.

    Nature Valley Nut Butter Peanut Butter variety, 4 pk - 50p a box, dated towards the end of January. One of my best HB finds! I usually pay £1.50 when on offer, but RRP is around £2.90 a box.

    https://www.naturevalley.co.uk/what-we-make/nut-butter-peanut/

    Also gluten free hobnobs, milk choc variety £1 a box. RRP £2.20 a box, possibly have been discontinued as not mentioned on the McVities website any longer, only the original variety.

    The almond version looks good!

    Eta: now I've tried it I can say with authority that its not the king of biscuits by any means (thankfully I didn't have to buy it first!). Lidl does better with its Sondey biscuits when on 1/2 price offer.

    If you're into Marie Kondo or just want some gift boxes- they have some gorgeous designs in at the moment. I found them mixed in with the unicorn and mother's day stuff. £2.49 for ones with removable lids and £2.99 for ones with velcro flap lids. I liked the pale pink with metallic copper spots, but there are a few to choose from. Much better priced than T.K. Maxx who want £7.99-£9.99 for the same thing.
