Poundworld logo£1 disposable BBQsIn-store at Poundland, 99p Store and Poundworld

Ongoing

Disposable BBQs are available for £1 at Poundland, 99p Store or Poundworld. The next cheapest we've found is £2 from Robert Dyas, but they often sell for around £5/£10, so it's worth making the trip if you have one of these stores nearby.

Here's some product detail on the BBQs:

  • Quantity of charcoal: Poundland 450g, Poundworld 600g
  • Approx burning time: 1.5 hours
  • Start cooking 20 mins after lighting.

Before you go out and stock up for summer, make sure you do your research. We've heard mixed opinions in the MSE Forum on this kind of disposable BBQ. Some people love them (no washing up!) while others don't think they burn long enough and can make food taste funny. So maybe try one out first to see if you like it. 

MSE Charlotte says:

I like to stock up on a few of these £1 BBQs for spontaneous days out. You never know when the sun decides to come out, and a last-minute one in a petrol station can cost up to £10!

Poundland logo£1 Nail Rock (nail art & polishes) RRP £7Can you find 'em? In-store only

Ongoing

Poundland is stocking Nail Rock nail art and polishes, including Caviar Mircoperle (tiny pearls you stick to your nails) and Frou Frou (3D nail stickers). These teenagers' favouriters are usually about £7 (although they're currently on sale for £3 in Topshop). 

Poundland says stock is limited and they won't be in every store, so be aware if you intend to make a trip.

Marilyn Monroe said "a smile is the best make up any girl can wear". After reading this to the girls on the deals desk, the general feedback was "RUBBISH!" So if your smile isn't quite making you as beautiful as Marilyn, you could try popping into a pound shop and picking up some £1 branded beauty bits. The bonus is, you'll be so pleased with your bargains you'll be positively grinning!

More info

Poundshops have loads of hidden branded gems. They are often discontinued stock, out of season, or from different countries - but all still good!

Can cosmetics go off? The British Skin Foundation says:

"Cosmetic products will remain safe to use provided they are stored under suitable conditions and not subjected to extreme temperatures."

"To ensure the maximum durability of cosmetic products, they should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and with the lids firmly closed."

It also said the use by date on cosmetics, is from when you open the product. So if it says 18 mths on the box, it should last for 18 months from when you open it, provided it's been stored correctly.

Of all the days you could do with a laugh, it has to be Valentine's Day.  All that pressure to spend lots of cash can wipe the smile off any MoneySaver's face.

But in Poundland, you can get stand-up comedy DVDs for a quid each. So you can stay in and stick on a DVD - no cash wasted!

We found in our local store:

  • Billy Connolly, You Asked For It [2011] (cheapest elsewhere £3.75)

We've been in touch with Poundland, which told us the DVDs are available nationwide and it has over 60,000 in stock.

Poundland logo£1 branded beauty bargainsIncl Stila, Rimmel, Max Factor, Eylure and OPI

Ongoing

As the wonderful Dolly Parton said: "It costs a lot of money to look this cheap". And she's right, buying make-up isn't easy on the pocket.

So we've done the glamorous job of scouring our local pound shops looking for branded beauty bargains. Some are discontinued (they were the hottest trends once, so we think anyway) and others are still in the shops with a big price tag.

Poundland logo£1 HDMI cables at PoundlandThey're just as effective as £20+ ones

Ongoing
Go to your nearest Poundland store and hunt for the £1 cables. Poundland says they are available all year round in all of its 400 stores. The Poundland HDMI cable is 1m long and can be used to connect your PC to your TV, so you can watch online content on your big screen.

MSE Becca says:

There's no point spending £20+ on a HDMI cable when tests have shown there's no difference in picture between the most expensive cables and the cheapest - techy website Cnet and The Gadget Show agree.

More info
For more info on how to connect your PC to your TV, read the Online Movie Streaming guide.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a secret phrase that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. "Section 75" laws means your plastic must protect anything you buy over £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust you can still get your money back.

Although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards there is something else to fall back on if you paid on a Visa debit or electron card, or Visa credit card under £100 (otherwise go for Section 75). Known as Visa Chargeback, this is part of Visa's internal rules and not a legal requirement. Full details of Section 75, chargeback and how to claim in the Section 75 Refunds guide.
