Four items you should always buy at Home Bargains – and the two things to get elsewhere | The Sun

HOME Bargains has just about everything you could need at the turn of every aisle, so how do you narrow down what to add to the basket?

We reveal the four items you should always buy at the budget superstore – and the two things you're just better off getting elsewhere.

Home Bargains stocks plenty of everyday household products at already low prices, but every now and then it will slash costs with special "star buys" and limited time sales.

Plus, the store has its own of range of products that look strikingly familiar to rivals' more pricey options.

That means bagging a Home Bargains dupe is a good way to make your wallet happy too.

But remember that it's only a deal if you were planning on buying anyway.


You’ve been shopping at Home Bargains wrong – here are 4 ways to bag a bargain

Four things you should always buy at Poundland – and four items to avoid

You shouldn't buy something just because it's a bargain price, or discounted, otherwise you might go over budget.

You should also have a shop around before you splash out.

Home Bargains has big competition from the likes of B&M and The Range, so you might find there's a better deal on offer elsewhere.

Even budget supermarket Aldi has given the store a run for its money in the past.

In that case, you might find there's some things to leave firmly behind on the shelf – we reveal which items you should give the cold shoulder, and which to add straight to your basket:

The items you should always buy at Home Bargains

Items from your food shop

Home Bargains doesn't just stock the obvious buys to kit out your personal space.

The giant store stocks everything to fill up the pantry too.

You can buy everything from snacks to essentials at a discount price.

And often you'll find products work out cheaper than at the supermarket.

The Daily Record reports that a staple loaf of bread is up to 30% cheaper at the bargains store than on a major grocery store's shelf.

Costing just 79p, they found it was 31p cheaper than the £1.10 the same product would usually sell for at the bigger supermarkets.

And something to cook it up in

You've stocked up the cupboards on all the groceries you didn't realise you could get at Home Bargains, and now it's time to get cooking.

Luckily the store has yet another aisle dedicated to electronics and all sorts of kitchen gadgets that'll have dinner on the table in no time.

You can get everything from blenders to slow cookers, to air fryers.

Home Bargains is selling one air fryer for just £45 – which is nearly £30 cheaper than rivals.

That makes it a no brainer to head to the store above any other competition.

Something smelly

No, we're not talking about food on this one.

But down a different aisle on the other side of the store altogether, you can pick up your smellies at a bargain price.

The store has Calvin Klein: One Summer EDT in a 100ml bottle on the shelves for just £19.99.

Anywhere else you might expect to pay around £44.00 for the perfume bottle.

But shopping at Home Bargains, savers can pocket £24.01.

Other examples include, Davidoff Cool Water spray, which is only £17.99 at Home Bargains but at least £34 more expensive elsewhere.

And there's also Anna Sui smellies for under a tenner – the Rock Me! Summer of Love perfume having a registered retail price of £30, or three times as much.

And garden gear

Home Bargains has everything for outside your home too, with an endless range of stunning garden furniture.

But if you're after the best bang for your buck you should make sure you snag the larger buys from the store rather than elsewhere.

Take Home Bargains' rattan corner sofa for example.

The New Hampshire corner sofa set costs £249.99.

But Aldi's almost exact copy is £50 MORE at £299.99

Both sofas have the same rattan effect design and you can choose from an array of colours.

They both come with an extra footstool or table in tow too, but Aldi's is 20% more expensive.

The things to get elsewhere

Baby buys

Buying essentials for your little ones could be done on a budget, but only if you know to look in the right place.

Home Bargains might not be the one to fulfill that criteria as we've spotted even BETTER deals elsewhere.

The store sells its nappies in bulk, which is great if you're stocking up, but can take a big upfront hit on your wallet.

100 Pampers nappies from the store costs £15.96, for example.

While it's still over £7 cheaper than you might find at rivals, you can actually get away with not paying a penny for similar products elsewhere.

Aldi shoppers can pick up FREE nappies in-store with an easy-to-claim voucher.

The supermarket shoppers can get a FREE 24 pack of Mamia size one newborn nappies, which usually cost 79p.

You have to sign up to a Netmums trial, and you'll be mailed your free voucher that you can claim only in an Aldi store.

And something for them to play with

Home Bargains has a whole host of toys and games to keep your little one occupied for hours on end.

And there's no denying that each is a bargain buy too – prices can start from just 99p.

But if you've got a fussy little one, and only the best brands will do, you might want to shop elsewhere.

And now may be your only chance to – The Disney store, for example,has launched a huge toy sale with up to 50% off Lego, Funko and more.

It makes some of its goodies even cheaper than Home Bargains right now.

One Funko doll we spotted at The Sun was slashed to just £5.50, for example – meanwhile the same brand stocked by Home Bargains had prices starting from a pricier £9.99.
