    HOME BARGAINS finds thread 5 10th Jan 13 at 1:02 PM
    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
    I'm a Board Guide on the Quick Grabbit, Food Shopping & Groceries, Shop but don't drop, Loans and Cutting Tax boards which means I volunteer to help get your forum questions answered and keep the forum running smoothly.

    This new thread has reminded me to pay a visit. Has anyone seen Twiglets in their local recently? Mr shoe goes through them like they were actually nice and they were so cheap in HB compared to Sainsburys.

    I am off to HB tomorrow, but last couple of times have been a bit disappointed. I know they vary store by store.

    Has anyone seen the Jelly Beans tin in HB recently?
    It was the seconds. odd sorts, so has some Jelly Beans stuck together and far too many orange ones in it but still a good price. Just the same as the Official Jelly Beans but more in the tub.
    Not seen any for a few months

    Lovely wicker baskets in Swansea Parc Tawe, great for making baby gifts up, think they were 3.99. Lovely soft fleece baby blankets but I thought the hooded towels seemed a bit harsh, maybe they would soften up when washed.

    Longton, Stoke on Trent have energy drink bottles, 380ml with a 45p price on them. These are all 10p. Cherry and Orange flavours.
    Can't vouch for the orange yet but the cherry is lovely

    Also picked up a set of chopping boards for Mum, I bought these last year and paid 9.99 so was surprised to see they are now only 6.99

    caffe hag decaf coffee 250gms in a tin 1.49 I bought it thinking it was instant but it is the proper stuff.

    Means I get decent coffee in the evenings now. dated until may this year. The cans writing is in italian. The tin is black.

    One thing I find really annoying is that don't always have price labels up. I wont buy unless I know the price.

    Yours
