  • Decorate Your Home Without Breaking The Bank

    Ever looked around your home and felt that things could do with a bit of a sprucing up?

    They say your home is your castle, but if you’ve had the same décor, furniture, and accessories for a while, it’s easy to feel uninspired and underwhelmed.

    The problem is that completely redecorating a room of your home doesn’t always come cheap. If you find yourself browsing through home decoration magazines and the like, the rooms you see may well look beautiful, but are sure to cost a pretty penny to put together.

    A better alternative is to get hold of real bargains for your home and put together a fresh feel piece-by-piece! This will save you cash, while still giving your home that longed-for sense of revitalisation.

    This is where a visit to your nearest Poundstretcher store comes in! Each of our stores offers a great selection of homeware products at unbelievably low prices for you to take advantage of.

    So to help you find what you need, we’ve put together this guide to our homeware selection to help offer some inspiration and guidance as to what’s on offer.

We also have a huge range of fantastic bedding, so your bedroom can be freshened up too.

    Perhaps you’re looking specifically to enhance the look and feel of your kitchen? We can certainly help there too. There's a great selection of kitchen and dining products that can help you not only add some colour and feel of the room, but also help you enhance the practicality of your time in the kitchen.

    Bathrooms are another part of the home that can often do with a little sprucing up. Bath mats and towels, as well as colourful toilet brushes, new toilet seats, and toilet roll stands are all available from Poundstretcher.

     

    Get things Organised

    One thing that can really detract from your home space is a sense of clutter and disorganisation. That means that having a strong storage system in place can be very advantageous.

    We offer a host of fabulous storage options that can help you get everything in order. Perfect for busy family life, be sure to take a look through our plastic storage, storage furniture, baskets and boxes.

  • Finding All Your Flippin' Fantastic Pancake Day Essentials

    Every year, Shrove Tuesday – also known as Pancake Day – presents a great chance for families and friends to get together and spend some quality time in each other’s company while enjoying some tasty treats.

    There are loads of different ways to make pancakes depending on what your specific preferences are, and you can include exciting flavours and textures to make your pancakes that little bit different if you so wish. But there are some rudimental elements and items that are required for the making of pancakes.

    Here at Poundstretcher, we can provide you with a great selection of items to help support with your Pancake Day efforts.

     

    All The Ingredients!

    When it comes to those basic ingredients for pancakes, a few things spring to mind.

    The first are flour and milk; with McDougal flour and skimmed and semi-skimmed organic milk from Moo available in our stores, you now just need a few other ingredients before you're ready to go!

    Eggs are a must, while vegetable oil and salts such as our natural sea salts can help to add flavour. And, of course, let's not forget the lemon juice!

     

    Grab All The Equipment!

    To make truly top of the range pancakes, it’s important you have the right tools at hand.

    A large bowl such as a mixing bowl is the perfect way to get all your ingredients together and mixed up. All your eggs, flour, milk and other ingredients need to be thoroughly whisked, which you can do with a stainless steel or nylon whisks.

    You can then use specially-designed crêpe pans to start the heating process. If you don’t have a crêpe pan to hand, a ceramic frying pan will work just fine. Choose from 20cm, 24cm and 28cm frying pans.

    Don’t forget about a dash of sunflower oil spray to prevent the ingredients from sticking to the pan.

     

    Why Not Get Experimental?


    There’s no reason why you can’t add a few interesting elements to this year’s pancake batch and add a bit of variety to proceedings.

    This host of chocolate items can be used to provide a tasty alternative to the traditional pancake, while there are also plenty of sweets available to spread on pancakes too.

     

    Super-Serving Options

    Once you’ve got that perfect pancake cooked and ready, it’s serving time!

    Explore a great selection of plates, bowls, and cutlery for you to eat your pancakes from. You can pick up all manner of kitchen and dining items at Poundstretcher, so don’t miss out.

    And once you’re finished and you feel the kitchen could do with a bit of a spruce up, we have a great range of kitchen cleaners for you to pick from.

    To make sure that Pancake Day 2019 is one to remember, be sure to plan a visit to your nearest Poundstretcher store and pick up a host of great items.

    Also, why not post your delightful pancake creations with us on Facebook or Twitter?
