    Found mudguards, both a front and rear guard for a bicycle.
    Perfect fit that would have cost me 5.99 in Decathalon. Bought two sets for two different bikes in hope it will keep bums dry!!

    They also had a great puncture repair kit, gel saddle cover and a pump that will clip on your bike. Great value.

    I found this on the 5 shelf today, took it to self-scan with the intention of seeing whether the price had come down...and was delighted to buy it for 2. I didn't appreciate how big the bottle is from Loulou's picture, it's 750ml so roughly 3 times the size of an ordinary shampoo bottle and is supposed to retail at 9.99. I shall report back as to whether it actually works or not!

    Well, I'm reporting back because surprisingly, I actually really like this product! Subject to availability, I'll get some more this week.

    Lastly, I hadn't seen this before but - apparently selling for 2+ elsewhere - again it smelled pleasant enough so I bought a couple, thinking they'll do for a holiday:

    Again, this is a nice product to use - especially slathered on after a hot bath in the evening, weirdly it's gentle smell has helped me sleep.

    At the Cosmetics section, there's also "Collection" (used to be called Collection 2000) Lip Balms, in Pink Strawberry, Green Apple and Orange Burst packs, 3 for 1.

    Poundland has a new skincare range called #6, rather cheekily sounds like Boots' range of skincare . First read about it here thanks to Caroline_1993 on HUKD.

    Saw #6 in Argyle Street, Glasgow this afternoon (added the information I can see from my photo).

    Left to Right:
    Micellar Cleansing Water 200ml,
    Anti-Ageing Night Cream "Fight Visible Signs Of Ageing With Collagen, Ceramides, Vitamins A, E & Pro Vitamin B5, Sweet Almond Oil And Algae Extract",
    Anti-Ageing Derma Serum "Fight visible signs of ageing with Sepilift Mono Peptide, Jojoba Oil, Vitamins A, C & E, White Water Lily Extract And Rice Milk" - Suitable for all skin types/Fragrance Free,
    Anti-Ageing Collagen Filler.

    Edit: Here's close-up from Trongate, Glasgow store's window (all of these on this store's shelves today - except the Eye Cream, Saturday 18th August):

    All say "Suitable For All Skin Types".

    Anti-Ageing Day Cream: "Fight Visible Signs Of Ageing With Collagen, Ceramides, Sweet Almond Oil, Algae Extract & Vitamins A & E"

    Micellar Cleansing Water: "With Pro-Vitamin B5, Aloe Vera, Chamomile And Vitamin E"

    Anti-Ageing Eye Cream: "Fight Visible Signs Of Ageing With Collagen, Ceramides, Algae Extract & Flaxseed Oil"

    Collagen Filler: "Fight Visible Signs Of Ageing With Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter & Algae Extract"

    No SPF in the Day Cream, which is a bit disappointing, though.

    Spotted these Adidas Hard Cases for iphone 5/5s in Trongate, Glasgow this afternoon - wonder if there's more varieties?

    Not my taste, but my teenage niece would love these!

    I see the Christopher Robin stuff has been manufactured to coincide with the release of the film!

    I was on the hunt for more TIGI (colour combat) at 2 and found just one amongst a scanty shelf of others - they have gone fast!! Lots of the whipped foundation in the silver sphere posted earlier, although difficult to assess the colour match through so much plastic so I decided not to invest my 1 on this occasion. Also shelves rammed full of the #6 range - a quick glance at the ingredients showed a very basic product that some smart marketeers have got their hands on. I prefer to buy from Lidl when it's at 1/2 price. I didn't find the flavoured lip balms but got a plain pack of 3 which I convinced my niece was magic lipstick, because it's invisible. Multi-packs of 10 mini-Crunchies can be found, apart from that not much different on the food section.

    I am a little disappointed with Poundland of late because it doesn't seem to stock facial washes, just make-up wipes and micellar water. It turns out that Poundstretcher now seems to be a better bet for such products, which I have noticed sells certain Poundland items (non-essentials) for marginally less than 1. Part of the fun of Poundland was finding the pearl amongst the debris, it's becoming less that way these days.

    Re Poundstretcher - been watching the programme on Channel 4 recently. Wonder if Chris Edwards offered them some contacts/suppliers from his Poundworld days, which could suggest the reason for some of the similar stock? Last time I was in a Poundstretcher (in Edinburgh) two years ago (?) it was a hell hole badly in need of refurbishment - don't remember seeing any Poundland/world stock in it then.

    Think Chris is an affable but shrewd chap and I'd definitely be listening and respecting his advice if Poundstretcher was mine.

    Edit 21st August: Wow, last night's episode had a twist at the end I wasn't expecting! #TeamChris!

    Yes, 2 thin biscuits in a pack but watch the dates - the boxes I saw expire at the end of Sept.

    I bought a box of these, and they seem to do the job fine:



    I spotted some ceramic travel mugs for 2, wasn't keen on the 2 slogans available but at least the price of these products is on the away down, esp useful as coffee shops will be getting rid of plastic "disposable" cups.

    Multibionta 50+ Complete Multivitamin With Biotic Cultures And Minerals, 60 Tablets, 1.

    Was in Trongate, Glasgow but I took the last two. Best Before dates are February 2019.

    There's another variety of Multibionta, 30 Tablets, still plenty on shelves.

    Edit: I keep forgetting to add, this same store has a few of the Catwalk (TIGI) Shampoos and Conditioners. Found some!!

    Still at the 5 section, so maybe that's why there's still a few left. Now 2, of course. Sis made me pick her up a few

    Also spotted some pink plastic / metal round lunchboxes the other day for 2 - they've gone fast as there was a single lonely specimen left. Luckily I didn't need one, as I'd bought this v similar item, BNWT from a chazzer for 1.50 mid-May

    one of these BNWT for 1.50 (RRP varies, from 5 to a silly 9.95 from Amazon):

    It came across as a callous and cruel way to treat a team of people trying to help.

    Though Chris wasn't keen on having to keep reporting back to Aziz and told him he was always open to two-way communication - maybe there were egos at play.

    Naturally TV shows are edited to make them look watchable, dramatic, confrontational, so I'm sure there's more to the story.

    I found a display basket full of these today for 1, RRP 5:



    Now for the rub: BB 17th July 2018 (one year from the date of manufacture), but I'm confident they'll taste fine.
