Well, Christmas is just a few days away and we are really starting to get into the festive spirit in our house. All the shopping is done and the presents are wrapped – most of them anyway – so now we are preparing for our guests to arrive.
Hopefully everything is coming together in your home as well, and you haven’t got too much last minute shopping left to do!
If you’re planning to hit the January sales on Boxing Day then don’t forget a trip to Poundland. It might not be the obvious choice but there are plenty of bargains to be had at its January Event with lots of savings to be made. So yes, you really can get more for £1 at Poundland during this time! Amazing or what?
In the January Event there are top cleaning brands to help with the post Christmas clean-up; Weight Watchers food products for any New Year’s resolutions; winter clothing such as hats, gloves and scarves to keep your family warm throughout chilly January; car care including de-icer, screen wash and ice scarpers to ensure you never get caught out in the freezing temperatures; DIY and painting and decorating range so you can start and re-fresh your home for the new year; and all the usual family favourites such as stationary and lunch box fillers for getting the kids back to school.
Our time on the Poundland blog has now sadly come to an end. We’ve had so much fun and hope you have too. We hope we’ve helped to point out some of the great family bargains Poundland has to offer, and that we’ve helped you save a few pennies…or pounds!
Whatever you have planned, we hope you have a very merry Christmas!
Lots of love

My family started shopping in Poundland just over a year ago following a new store opening in my local town. After my first visit I soon realised how much money we could save on household essentials – this started my bargain hunting habit!
Since shopping regularly at Poundland we have been able to save money every week – in total we’ve saved around £400 in the last year! Because most families are strapped for cash at the moment, we wanted to share with you some top money-saving tips that we hope you will find useful:
- You can pick up some family favourite brand names in Poundland such as Rowntrees Jelly, Princes Tuna, Hula Hoops, HP Baked Beans and Colgate; you get a much better deal with these brands than in the supermarkets!
- The Wisemans milk is always top of my shopping list too as I save 37p on milk each time I purchase a carton – our family gets through 20 pints a week!
- Poundland’s also the perfect place to take the kids shopping to spend their pocket money as they can find some great toys, colouring books and DVDs.
- As every item is just £1, I find that it really helps me stick to a budget for the week. I can put items in my basket and easily see how much I’m spending before I’ve even got to the till.
- Finally, it’s always worth popping in regularly, the offers change all the time so you’re bound to find something new. Plus, the seasonal ranges give you even more opportunities to save.
My name’s Michelle Skeet and I live in Horsham, West Sussex with my husband, Alec, and two sons; William, aged 4 and Elliott, aged 2. We are pretty much your typical family with work, school and general family activities taking up most of our week.
As with many families in the UK, we’ve certainly found that running a household can get expensive – especially in recent years. We like to find savvy ways to save money on the everyday things in our home so we can put our money towards the nicer things in life – like family outings.
So when Poundland got in touch earlier this year to ask if we’d like to share our Poundland experience with other families and blog about our savings, we were delighted to help out! We love to find a bargain and hope that sharing our findings with you might provide some inspiration for ways you can save money in your household too.
We will be posting our findings throughout December on the Poundland blog – we hope you find our thoughts useful and fully welcome any comments. Please feel free to share your tips too!
