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

    Now back to the original post …

    Seeing as the old thread was some 18 months old, I thought it best to start a new thread to keep the finds valid.

    Bit of a shampoo-arama in Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow this morning.

    Remember those Tigi Catwalk Shampoos and Conditioners? I assume this is store specific leftover stock, but there's Tigi Curl Rocks Conditioner 750ml for 1!

    Also Dove Pro-Age Shampoo For Brittle Hair, 1. And Inecto Shea Shampoos, Conditioners and Bamboo Shampoos, Conditioners 500ml, 1 (can see they're 1.49 at B&M currently). "90% Of Natural Origins".

    Also a lone Dove Nutritive Solutions Daily Moisture Conditioner, 1, Dove Advanced Hair Series Oxygen Moisture (for fine, flat hair) Shampoo 50ml, 1.

    Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo (Dry, Dull Hair), 1. L'Oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser High Shine Shampoo (can't see "ml"s on some of these but it's definitely not the 500ml size Elvive I saw in Argyle Street a few weeks ago!). L'Oreal Elvive Full Restore 5 Repairing Shampoo.

    Also, on the bottom, to the far-right, Pantene Foam Mousse Conditioners - Lively Colour or Micellar Water, 1 each (180ml, I think). Some people don't like these but I love how easy they are to wash out!

    Another -TEN-™ baby item - Baby Natural Shampoo 200ml, 1.

    Umberto Giannini Glam Care Volume Conditioner 250ml, 1.

    Star Wars Bobble Heads, 1.

    Hot Wheels "HW Sports" Steve Caballero Skateboard or Minecraft Minecart "HW Screen Time", 1.

    Douwe Egberts Espresso, 95g, 2.

    Trongate, Glasgow:
    Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks - Blemish Mud 100g or Creamy Coconut 80ml, 1.

    Fairy Inox Ball x 3 (not sure what's great about these as they look the same as the no-name ones I get, but if you trust brands more, this may appeal), 1. There's also a display of Finish Dishwasher Fresheners but I took a picture of one of mine, together, to save me taking another photo!) 1.

    Great finds, LouLou! I can't believe the Catwalk C shampoo is now down to just 1, I'd bought several at 2 when you first posted and just yesterday was marvelling at how long it had lasted me.

    I'm in two minds about the DE Expression though - if it was Gold I would have cleared the shelves. Normally the 190g jars are priced no lower than 4.50 on offer so 2 for 95g is a good price.

    Seabrook Sea Salted 1 promo bags, 50p (likely short-dated/store-specific)

    Paclan Professional Swing Bin Liners* (575 x 724mm/23" x 29" approx = 35L) x 100 bags, 1

    PS: The Tigi Curl Rocks Conditioner (Sauchiehall Street) definitely *is* 1, bought a few bottles earlier (left some on the shelf, I'm not that bad). I used to post receipts on this thread, but you can't always see them very well.

    In Argyle Street, Glasgow Poundland they have Caffe Di Italia Medium Roast Ground Coffee 250g at the moment.

    Edit: Not sure it's worth my while, judging by this thread, but your mileage may vary! http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/caffe-di-italia-medium-roast-ground-coffee-250g-1-poundland-1819466

    No sign of the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle (Full Size) being talked about on HUKD, darn! http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/aussie-3-minute-miracle-colour-deep-treatment-1-poundland-nationwide-4-69-boots-1847190

    PS: Not Poundland, but useful for any Weegies reading: XXL pack of Finish Powerball x 100 for 8.99 in Poundworld, Argyle Street.

    I bought a pack of Caffe Di Italia medium ground coffee from Poundland in Bretton Centre, Peterborough and then I saw it again in B & M in Bridge Street, Peterborough. I brewed it in a Bialetti stainless sreel moka pot and I am quite surprised that the taste is almost identical to my favourite Pelican Rouge Concerto coffee beans which I buy from Amazon. But the Pelican Rouge Concerto costs more at 8.99 for 1KG.

    I've seen the taste described in reviews as "burnt rubber" but the taste and aroma is unmistakably Robusta coffee beans and quite high quality too. Probably not a coffee for the British palate, it is as the brand says, Italian. Worth a shot at 1 for 250g.

    Strathkelvin Retail Park, Bishopbriggs, (near) Glasgow, this morning.

    6 x 100g Felix As Good As It Looks, 2 (Tuna In Jelly or Chicken In Jelly) - though - PetsAtHome had a 12 pack for 3 a few months ago

    Crucials BBQ Sauce, Chilli & Garlic, Garlic Mayo sauces, 1 (think these are 500ml), 1

    Cutex Care + Color 13.6ml varnishes, 1

    TRESemme Pro Collection Beautiful Volume Shampoo 400ml, 1

    Unfortunately, the Garnier Ultimate Blends and L'Oreal Elvive products I see in this store are all under the 2 section (?).

    Disney Baby Self-Adhesive Border DecoFun Bambi design, 1 and Paint Factory Colour It Quick-Drying Primer (Matt Finish) 400ml, 1

    I suspect this has been in Poundland a while, so probably old news: Mr Valet Anti-Bacterial Household Wipes Apple & Apricot or Citrus & Mandarin, 90 Wipes, 1

    Listerine Spearmint 250ml, 1

    Edit: A few on HUKD are grumbling that Listerine 250ml is "in Poundland all the time" but I genuinely haven't seen Listerine in my local stores for ages. Unless they all fly off the shelves and I just never spot them.

    Another Edit: Caroline_1993 on HUKD says there are actually 600ml Listerine bottles out there for 1, and that the L'Oreal Shampoos are 1. (assume Garnier Ultimate Blends is the same?). Mispricing doesn't happen too often nowadays, mercifully.

    Nothing of note in Poundland lately.

    Except when I tried to recycle my 10p bag for life recently, I was told it wasn't replaceable by the adamant SA. I directed her to the print on the bottom of the bag and she helpfully read out "Keep out of the reach of children". Encouraging her to read to the end didn't change her mind, she had to "check" which was just irritating. I'm not looking for staff to get smart with me, just to be helpful and use the brain that God has given them.

    From Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow:
    -TEN- Breast Care Cream 125ml, 1

    W7 Ebony Blush Perfection or L'Oreal Glitter Eyeshadow (loads of these), 1

    My Cycle Sports Sunglasses (UV400), okay if you're in a hurry to buy sunnies! 1

    Huge popcorn bags, Surprisingly Sweet or Perfectly Sweet & Salted 360g (there's a Cineworld around the corner ), 1 each

    Quite a few Poundlands have these, seasonal stock - BBQ Grill Trays - one appears to be a pack of 6 differently sized foil trays.

    The red-packaged Instant BBQ Grill is just on its own (says "Slow burning Charcoal/Easy To Light/Quick Start Lighting Paper"), 1 each

    Union Street: Drumstick Lollies Lip Balms (not a super-bargain, of course, but I love Drumstick Lollies!!), 1

    Pecksniff's Grapefruit & Citron Hand & Nail Treatment Cream 50ml, 1 (Also found on Poundshop.com - though postage is hefty)

    I've seen these for 90p or so reduced at Tesco, but worthwhile if you want to grab one for the coffee shops nearby. Reusable Coffee Cup, 1 (not sure what these are made from)

    Super-Fast Air Pump, 2

    Play-Doh Doh Vinci 56g "20+ Tools" Platinum Styler Suite 5 - better picture and reviews on Amazon
    Next to this - I've seen these in Poundland before - Monster High Boo York Dolls (quite a few different ones), 5 (not sure if Monster High is still as popular)

    Dekton Digital Voltage Tester "AC/DC 12V to 250V" or Dekton 7.5" 190mm Mains Tester "AC 200V To 250V/Long Life Neon Bulb", 1 each

    Next to the COB Keyring Lights mentioned before, Window/Door Entry Alert, 1 (seems to be the same manufacturer)

    Sand & Water Table "6 Piece Set" (assume there's no sand, my brother asked me but I didn't look that closely), 5

    Edit: This Sand & Water Table on Amazon (third-party sellers) looks very similar, but I don't know if it's the same - good reviews - though many say it is small!

    Trongate, Glasgow:
    Daz 20 Wash Whites & Colours 1 litre, (maybe they have limited space, as it was the Powder last week)! 1.

    (The Persil Non-Bio Powder packs behind these are 10 Wash packs).

    Trongate, Glasgow:
    Apologies if these are old news, but my sister told me to pick up a lunch box. RoundHouse Munch & Lunch Food Storage Containers, 4 piece set, "airtight seal/great for microwave meals/keep food fresh, 1 x 1.59ltr, 1 x 300ml, 2 x 139ml", 1

    Chupa Chups Antibacterial Hand Sanitisers, Lemon Fresh, Dreamy Vanilla, Juicy Apple, Sweet Cherries, 30ml 1

    A randomly-lying around Coppertone UV Protect SPF27 "Mild" 60ml (appears to be a Japanese import) 1

    At the Skincare section, but must be a mistake as Schwarzkopf makes hair products? Schwarzkopf Essensity Replenishing Balm 150ml "fine filtered organic essence of goji berry" 1

    Chill Factor All Season Bugwash 2 Litres, Chill Factor Anti-Freeze & Coolant "Ready Mixed" 1 Litre, Ignition Car Shampoos - assume also 1 Litre, 1 each. No expert on car products!

    Dylon Spray Starch, 1

    Johnson's No More Tangles Kids Shampoo 500ml, 1

    Was looking for plasters as the MasterPlast fabric ones kept coming off - Elastoplast Value Pack (Assorted Water Resistant Plasters, 8 Plasters + 4 Cut To Size), 1 (ended up buying OneBelow ProPlast Neon Plasters and Blister Plasters!)

    Argyle Street:
    Though loads of stores have these, Super Squirter (think it's a Poundland-brand), 1

    A bit of misprice malarkey in Argyle Street, Glasgow this afternoon:

    (I was told a customer had left the 50p sign there, oh well - as long as they didn't think it was me!):
    4 Pack of Milka & Oreo or Milka & Strawberry, 1 (though they can be found at Watt Brothers 5 For 1, for any Scottish people reading )

    Another 50p shelf, of Patisserie De Bain goodies. But I was told the larger 200ml items don't apply, just the 50ml Hand Creams (but the assistant did let me buy the larger tube for 50p)

    Syoss Oleo 21 2-Phase Oil Treatment, Leave In, 100ml 1

    Johnson's Baby Wipes, 50p (didn't get to see which variety, as you can see, random gubbins is all that's left on the opened boxes).
    Not sure if the Johnson's Cotton Buds are 50p as well, I think they are.

    24 Rolls (20 Pack + 4 Free) Quantum Luxury Soft 3-Ply Toilet Roll, 5

    Cadbury 5 Star 5 Pack (also 99p at Home Bargains) 5 x 48.5g - these are just like Biscuit Boost - 1

    Maybe style over substance, but interesting packaging, Hankeez 70 2-Ply Premium Facial Tissues "Ultra Low Dust/Super Soft", 1
