BBQ logoCheap BBQs, incl 1 disposablesAlso portable BBQs from 9, 5kg charcoal from 3.50

Ongoing

With the bank holiday weekend upon us, there could be an ideal opportunity to light up the barbecue, so we've rounded up some of the cheapest barbecue deals we could find, including portable charcoal barbecues from £9, disposables from £1 and 5kg bags of charcoal from £3.50.

£1 barbecues 

Disposable barbecues are available for £1 in store at Poundland, and you can also find them for £1.49 at Home Bargains. The next cheapest we've found are £1.99 at B&M or £2 at Tesco*, Morrisons* and Wilko*. They often sell for up to £5 in some supermarkets, so if you want one it's worth making the trip to one of the stores above if you have one nearby.

You should check the quantity of charcoal and burning time if you plan to cook for several people, as there's a lot at steak (sorry), and you may need to purchase more than one – or risk a grilling.

Portable barbecues

  • 13" diameter portable BBQ - £9 at Homebase in store or click and collect only.
  • 14" diameter portable BBQ - £14.99 at B&M.

Standard-sized charcoal barbecues 

If you're cooking for a family of four, a standard-sized free-standing barbecue should do the job. On Fri 4 May, we found these deals:

  • 17" diameter kettle BBQ - £20 at Asda*.
  • 17" diameter oval kettle BBQ - £19.99 in store at Home Bargains (sold out online).
  • 17" diameter kettle BBQ - £26.99 at Argos*. Incl utensils and cover. Collect in store for free or delivery is £3.95.

5kg charcoal £5 or less

The hottest deals we found on 5kg bags of charcoal, which are sure to get you sizzling, include:

Instant lighting charcoal bags

If you don't want guests barbe-queuing up for a sausage whilst you're still trying to light the grill, then you might want to opt for the easier option of instant lighting charcoal bags. We checked the prices at these retailers:

  • £2.99 at B&M for a £2kg bag
  • £3.99 at Home Bargains for a 4kg bag
  • £4 at Wickes* for a 2kg bag or two for £6
  • £4.50 at Wilko* for a 3kg bag or two for £7 in store only
  • £5 at Sainsbury's* for two 1.5kg bags
  • £5.50 at Morrisons* for a 4kg bag

Barbecue safely

Whichever barbecue you choose, be sure to follow the Fire Service's barbecue safety advice, never leave your barbecue unattended, always dispose of charcoal or disposable barbecues responsibly and never bring your barbecue indoors.

Poundland logo1 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.

Click the image below to see our haul:

  • Boholash, Salonsystem diamond false lashes - 7.99 elsewhere online

Poundland

  • Rimmel Wake Me Up mousse - 5 at Tesco
  • Rimmel Glam Eyes trio - 4.99 (incl delivery) elsewhere online
  • TOWIE false eyelashes - 13 for a 3-pack elsewhere online, so about 4 each
  • Calvin Klein sheer creme eyeshadow - RRP 1.50, but we saw it for 5 elsewhere online
  • Rimmel 60 seconds nail polish - was 3.70 at Tesco, now 2.70

This is what we found in our local stores. Speaking to Poundland and Poundworld, they say you can get these items in most stores, while stocks last.

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 months on the box, it should last for 18 months from when you open it, provided it's been stored correctly.

With the weather out there unseasonably warm and Brits barbecuing at every opportunity (and even persevering through the rain), we've rounded up the cheapest barbecue deals we could find, including portable charcoal barbecues from £15 and disposables from £1.

£1 barbecues 

Disposable barbecues are available for £1 in store at Poundland or Poundworld. The next cheapest we've found is £1.29 from Aldi. They often sell for around £5 in supermarkets, so if you want one it's worth making the trip to one of the stores above if you have one nearby.

You should check the quantity of charcoal and burning time if you plan to cook for several people, as there's a lot at steak (sorry) and you may need to purchase more than one - or risk a grilling.

pound logo 1 mega dealsIncl 10 watch, L'Oreal moisturiser and Aussie shampoo

Expired
1 mega bargains

Dont fall for the pound shop hype. Some things sold in there cost less than 1 elsewhere, some more. The key is to find the things youd pay much more for elsewhere. This week weve found a whole range so here goes...

Stonking deals at Poundworld include...

  • Breo watches. Usually around 10, so that's a massive 90% saving. In our local store, we found them in grey and blue and in sizes L and M.
  • Toni & Guy shampoo & conditioner (75ml) 1 each. We couldn't find the same travel-size products in major stores but found them for 2 online.
  • Horrible Histories books. Titles available: 20th Century, Rowdy Revolutions, Cruel Kings and Mean Queens, Rotten Rulers, Wicked Words and Dark Knights and Dingy Castles. The titles are around 5 online.
  • TomTom carry case and strap. We've seen similar online for around 10 at Play.com

And at Poundland...

  • L'Oreal Nutri Bronze 12 hour moisturising fluid (50ml, gradual self tan). We've found similar on Amazon for 4.20. The tanner doesn't come from the UK (you'll see a sticker on it translating it into English) though this doesn't means it not legit.
  • Aussie Miracle Moist Hair shampoo & conditioner (75ml) 1 each. The cheapest we could find elsewhere were 2 each at Superdrug. They're 75ml, perfect for hand luggage.
  • Andrew Collinge hydra therapy conditioner. We read in a Marie Claire article online this was originally 4.99. We can't find the same conditioner anywhere now, so it must be discontinued.
  • Danny Wallace's More Awkward Situations for Men. The next cheapest we found was 8.27 at Amazon.
  • Horrid Henry books. There are 20 titles available. Ones we picked up were Horrid Henry Gets Rich Quick and Horrid Henry and the Mummy's Curse. The books are around 4
MSE Charlotte says:

We are not able to tell how old the L'Oreal moisturiser is. We asked the British Skin Foundation about expiry dates on skincare. It said:

"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 months on the box, it should last for 18 months from when you open it, provided it's been stored correctly.

Poundworld logoPoundworld 1 brasAvailable in over 200 stores from Fri 7 Jun

Expired
Shop at your nearest Poundworld or at Poundworld's multi-store chain, Discount UK Homes, while stocks last. The bras come in sizes M, L and XL and colours include nude, black and white.

The bras went on sale today (Fri 7 Jun), although stock is limited and Poundworld expects to sell out over the weekend, so go quickly to ensure you get yours.
MSE Steve B says:

If you miss out this time, Poundworld has told us more bras will arrive later this month. Sign up to its newsletter to keep abreast of the situation.

Poundland logo1 OPI nail varnish and Eylure lashesBuy in-store at either Poundland or Poundworld

Expired
We had a rummage in our local Poundland and Poundworld stores and found a few bargains. While we've confirmed there's good stock, not all stores will stock the items. Here are the corkers for 1:

  • OPI crackle nail varnish in various colours at Poundland (usually 8)
  • Eylure fake lashes - note this one is at Poundworld (usually 5)
  • Sally Hansen lip inflation gloss at Poundland (usually 6)

MSE Paloma says:

It's called crackle nail varnish as when you apply it as a top coat, the varnish gives a shattered-glass effect as it dries.

More info
Are 1 cosmetics safe?

The British Skin Foundation and Cosmetic Toiletry & Perfumery Association have told us people shouldn't be put off by low prices as long as you check the packaging. It should include a period after opening (PAO) number displayed in an 'open jar' symbol with a number indicating how many months the product will be safe after opening, provided it's stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
