Such bargains to be had...

It doesn't hurt to stroll in to B&M Bargains once in a while. I've blogged before about the miracles of this place - a veritable Aladdin's cave of, well, rather odd things at the kind of prices that make you think that it wouldn't hurt to buy just one, or two, or three...

So we bought some shit. Including a big tin of meatballs in gravy to satisfy my meaty desires when vegetarians M and Finn aren't looking, and a rather limp looking but huge slab of flapjack. Mesmerised by other goodies, and figuring that, whoever you are, you're as keen to bag a grim and slightly out-of-date looking bargain as I am, I've selected four items currently stocked by B&M to highlight. Here goes. For those that enjoy Spam but don't like paying fancy prices, I think that Midland's no-nonsense Pork Loaf might be up your street. I especially like the fancy serving suggestion on the white-space a-go-go tin. Regard:


Still on food, if, like me, you've got through your festive pickles, Big Al is about to become your best friend. Look at the size of this baby (at just £1.79) and its crunchy contents:


It's not just food down at B&M. Oh no. There are some items that wouldn't look out of place on QVC. One such is the Ultimate Lint Roller which, amazingly, requires no refills!

And if that doesn't tickle your fancy, why not go for the awesome Table Mate II, the second generation of the Ultimate Portable Table (surely a laptop-friendly must for those bloggers and tweeters who can't tear themselves away from the comfort of the sofa?)!

But the question must be asked, "what did you buy Dave?".

Mainly, it was the meatballs. A four-pack of Branston baked beans too. And a Thomas the Tank Engine book. Oh, and a multi-pack of Wotsits (8 for 99p). And x2 jars of Patak's curry sauce. That kind of thing.
