    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

    The one in Newtonabbey also had 3kg bags for £5.00. I was buying the 2.5 kg bag and v helpful s/a came up and said they had 3kg bags out the back just arrived and did I want that instead. Bargain price for both. Only problem is cat will refuse to eat cheaper brands when it runs out.

    A poster on the Boots sale thread said there was a Philosphy style scrub/shower and shampoo all in one for sale in HB for 79p, any idea what it is called?
    TIA
    Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.
    Go as far as you can see, and when you get there you'll see further.

If you do a google image search there are lots of pics so you will know what to look for in store although the packaging is philosophy inspired I havent tried it myself so cant comment on what it is like but I have passed it many times in the Newtownards store.

    In my store at the minute there is St Tropez self tan at a bargain price of £4.99 rrp £20, it is a gel. I usually use the lotion but was tempted by the low price, it comes out a bit darker in my opinion and a little goes a long way. I bought 3 the first day I saw it in case it didnt come back but its been there for about 2 weeks now, sorry if already mentioned.

    The also have a couple of items from the Sanctuary Spa range, again usually stocked by boots. They only had part of the maternity range (mum to be) bath salts and lotion and the body lotion from the mande lular collection.

    Argan oil shampoo too at £2.99, not a brand I recognised but the bottle looked about 500ml.

    Ha ha what an understatement. I had only ever seen the HB 3 in one, but when I spotted the Philosophy range in a department store I couldn't believe the HB one had ripped it off so obvioiusly! It's really lush though and has really helped me kick my boots addiction as they always have it in my local store. I've had the hand cream too but found that smelt a bit overly sickly.
    Sanctuary, wow, I'm amazed at that find, lucky you.
    Less stuff, more life, love, laughter and cats!
    Even if I'm on the shopping threads, it doesn't mean I'm buying! Sometimes it's good to just look and then hit the CLOSE button!

    They had 'Typo Bags' in last week. They are thick canvas/cotton type tote/shopping bags with one letter printed on in a nice font. They had lots of different letters. Hard to describe but this is one:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/L-Initial-Letter-Tote-Bag-Shopping-Bag-Typo-Bags-/221177106789?pt=UK_Women_s_Handbags&ssPageName=RSS %3AB%3ASHOP%3AGB%3A101&hash=item337f2ed165&nma=tru e&si=msH5vgmQB%252FRHrj5m59oiUy%252B1gpM%253D&orig _cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    They were only £1.99! Bargain and thicker and stronger than the usual 'shoppers'. This cheeky mite on ebay is overcharging!

    Quantum Power lemon packs 20 plus 20
    HomeBargains have Quantum powerball lemon packs (20 plus 20 free) at £3.49. * Crossgates leeds.

    So this works out cheaper than tesco 3 for £10 on quantum (gives you 60 for£10) - get a 120 for £10.50.
    * If youhave MOCs you could get a further pound off each (or as many as it lets youprint should get at least 2). So 7.50 to £8.50 for 120. I’d already used MOCS so didn’t use today – Iam presuming HB take mocs.

    http://www.finish.co.uk/coupons/

    HTH

    Edit - someone on another thread has said HB don't do MOCs (see below) - I've not tried before - used my finish mocs in Mr Ts last night. So don't count on the mocs - can anyone who works at HB say if this is nationwide or just the store the poster tried yesterday?
    "I tried this in Cwmbr*n (I've got 2 x £1.50 mocs to use) - told that HB don't take ANY mocs "

    Half the joy of home bargains is wondering what you'll find.

    yes date on the Weight Watchers cordial is March 2013 however I will go through one in Feb and one in March so worth getting at least another one when I am in there. Good if you have kids and go through a fair bit in a month
