  • Reasons Why a Canvas Wardrobe Is a Must-Have for Students

    Storage is always an issue, whether you're at university or not. We all have so many clothes, shoes, and bits and pieces, that sometimes we just need a little bit of extra space. Though how do you accomplish this at uni, when you may have the tiniest wardrobe ever and yet still want your room to be neat? Well, canvas wardrobes in our storage range are the answer!

    That's right, canvas wardrobes, and we at Poundstretcher have them ready for you to take home so you get your clothes all organised and put away, all for an affordable price.

    Fill In The Gaps With Canvas

    If you have a tiny uni accommodation, then this Single Metal Frame Canvas Wardrobe is just what you're looking for. You can utilise as much of your new room as possible, and it offers a great storage solution whether it's temporary or long-term.

    Our canvas wardrobes are easy to assemble and allows you to hang all your clothes with a little extra space at the bottom for shoes and other accessories. What's more is that you can free up space for everything else you'll be needing, such as a laundry basket and a desk to work on (which will come easily to you once your room is free from clothes hanging around haphazardously).

    A single not big enough for you? Whether you wish to share it with another person or you simply have THAT many clothes, we also have you covered with our Double Canvas Wardrobe.

    Having Both Style AND Substance

    Now, style is a big part of any room, and we have a choice of colours that will help benefit your personal space. Yet whilst you can grab them in black, white or grey, you can also be assured they are perfect for storage. Stylish and functional.

    It's not only canvas wardrobes, but also door hangers that offer this same design. Like this Black Overdoor Organiser; hang everything from your childhood teddy from home, slippers, shoes, and more. All it takes is to hook it over your door to allow you to maximise your space (which believe me, can be limited whilst at university).

    Wherever you go, I can go too!

    Now you might only be living at your uni accommodation for the academic year, so what happens when summer rolls around? Well, fear not, you can easily disassemble your canvas wardrobe, put it into storage, and reassemble it when you move into your next place; easy peasy!

    Whether it's taking it to use back at home, at your uni place, or even when you start to move out to your own place after uni, there's always a need for storage. It's a great investment in staying organised and to keep your clothes clean and fresh.

  • Energy Drinks to Keep you Going at University

    In need of an energy boost at for the beginning of the University year? Energy drinks are a fantastic way of getting back into uni life!

    Having spent much of the summer dancing the night away at festivals, travelling and jet setting or even just curled up with munchies and a ‘Netflix-athon’, getting back into the swing of studying is a difficult transition after so much down time.

    Here are some branded energy drinks that will help kick-start you into the academic year ahead so you can hit the ground running!

    Lucozade

    Let’s start with the old reliable– Lucozade!

     

    Originally, Lucozade started out as an energy source for the sick. Created in 1927, it was sold as ‘Glucozade’ by a Geordie pharmacist, William Owen, until being sold to Beecham’s in 1929 where it became renamed as Lucozade.

    Being a glucose-based water solution, this energy drink was rebranded as a sports drink in 1983 to associate it with health rather than sickness, which was its previous use.

    As an original energy drink on the block, you can trust that it will do the trick when it comes to perking you up in times of weariness.

    At Poundstretcher, we sell the 380ml bottle individually for ONLY 45p EACH.  Or, if you fancy something less sparkling but refreshingly juicy, you can get a 6 pack of the Lucozade Sport Orange 500ml bottles for ONLY £2.89! Refreshing and juicy, these orange bottles are great for those who aren't keen on fizzy drinks!

    So, whether you just need an energy boost to get through a particularly dull lecture or you’re doing an infamous ‘all-nighter’ to finish that essay on time, we at Poundstretcher, have got you covered!

    Lucozade Zero Original

    Obviously, being branded as a sports energy drink, Lucozade original is renowned for high calorie content so may not be conducive to weight watching.

    But don’t worry! We, at Poundstretcher, have also stocked up on Lucozade Zero Original– the calorie free option for ONLY 39p a bottle! So, you can study all night, with the unmistakably awesome taste of Lucozade Original, whilst keeping the calories at bay and looking after your pennies!

    Lucozade Tropical Fusion

    If you’re not keen on the original Lucozade, why not spice it up a bit with some of their fun fusion flavours! Tropical Fusion is a great one for miserable, drizzly days. Flavoured with pineapple–kiwi, this energy drink is a smash of the tropics and is sure to pick you up whatever the weather or however daunting the workload ahead is.

    You can pick up a bottle of Tropical Fusion Lucozade at Poundstretcher for ONLY 49p EACH! So, bring the exotic to your lecture theatre or Library session and add some zest to your studying!We've got a variety of flavours so mix it up for less at Poundstretcher!

    Monster Energy

    Not for the faint hearted, Monster Energy is the MUST-HAVE energy drink for those of us who want to crank up the work-per-hour quota!

    Claiming to ‘Fuel Your Brain’ whilst simultaneously ‘Unleash[ing] the Beast’, this energy drink has become increasingly popular in recent years.

    Originating in America in 2002, Monster Energy, as a company, are known for endorsing many worldwide extreme sporting events such as UFC, BMX, Snowboarding, Motocross (off-road motorcycle racing) and many more.

    The caffeine content in Monster Energy Original is approximately 10mg/oz which is around the same as an average cup of coffee. However, REMEMBER, a can of Monster is ‘beastier’ than the average 8oz cup of coffee at around 17oz per can so you’re sure to get that satisfying surge of energy right when you need it!

    You can pick up a 500ml can of Monster Original for ONLY 79p EACH! At Poundstretcher, we also sell the zero sugar version and many other ferociously tasty variants from the same price.

    GET PREPARED for the dreaded all-nighters before an important deadline.

    When the essay that you’ve been staring at for 8 hours solid has become, what looks to be, a collection of nonsensical wavy lines; when the walls of the library have literally changed state, because you’ve been sitting there that long; when the inside of your brain has turned to soup and your eyes have lost mobility so you’re just staring into the oblivion that is ‘STRESS’ – crack open a can of MONSTER and release your inner geek!

    Red Bull (Gives You Wings)

    And finally, the Powerhouse of the energy drink world– Red Bull. Created in 1987, Red Bull originated in Thailand, being sold by the Austrian company Red Bull GmbH. Based on a cheap Thai energy drink called ‘Krating Daeng’ that was said to be a cure for jet-lag, Red Bull was originally marketed as a trendy, upscale version, first introduced in Austrian Ski resorts.

    Over the years, Red Bull has given itself wings by gaining the highest market share of any energy drink in the world, with 5.387 billion cans sold in 2013!

     

    Often known for being pricey, Poundstretcher have, as always, managed to give you an absolute bargain! At ONLY 95p per 250ml can OR you can pick up a pack of 4 250ml cans for ONLY £3.49 EACH!

    For the ‘toff’ of the energy drink world, we think this is an unmissable deal so study in style for less with Poundstretcher!

    GET YOUR WINGS NOW at your local Poundstretcher and grab that essay by the HORNS!

    These are just a few of our suggestions at Poundstretcher for energy drinks to get you through University. We have a huge range of big brands at bargain prices; from Relentless to Rockstar or Mountain Dew. 

    Whether you fancy a set of wings, are planning on contacting– and unleashing– your inner beast or want to party like a 'Rockstar', remember, at Poundstretcher, there are 'no half measures' when it comes to fantastic deals on all big brand energy drinks!

    We also have a huge range of cold drinks; from Coca Cola to fruit juices, as well as a variety of hot drinks such as tea and coffee at great value so get stocked up at Poundstretcher for this academic year – you’ll be amazed at what you’ll save!

    Safety Note: Please consume energy drinks responsibly. These energy drinks must not be consumed by pregnant women, children or anyone sensitive to caffeine.

  • Get Ready For Back To Uni Season With Poundstretcher

    It's finally that time of year; uni is now looming ever closer. Whether you're a fresh-faced student straight out of college/a gap year, or a mature student, it's always a good idea to have a checklist of the university essentials, and Poundstretcher is here to help!

    Items including your passport, driving license, documents regarding your student loan, clothes, bank card, laptop, TV, and all the other essentials to student life are a given. You’re bound to take all of them, right? However, how about the rest of the things you’re going to have to pack? All the items you'll need to buy especially for student life?

    Doesn't matter if you're going to be a fresher moving into Halls or returning and living with friends in a rented student house. The below checklists are ideal for your uni survival.

    If you are entering Halls of Residence or even some student accommodation, then you may not need certain items (a toaster, iron, ironing board, and even the cleaning supplies are usually provided when in Halls). If in doubt, it's best to consult the university residential services.

    Uni Checklist: Stationery

    Uni Checklist: Bedroom

    Uni Checklist: Toiletries & Bathroom

    Uni Checklist: Cleaning Supplies

    Uni Checklist: Kitchen

    Uni Checklist: Groceries

    Miscellaneous

    And there we have it. Everything (and then some) you may need whilst at university. Some of the above can be altered or removed to suit your own personal preferences and needs. Splitting the cost between flatmates and university friends is also a great and affordable way to go about things.

    Wondering where your nearest Poundstretcher is exactly? Well then, check out our handy Store Finder to see Google Map directions and opening times.

    Good luck!

  • Student Essential Plastic Storage for LESS!

    Everybody can relate to a lack of places to put things. At Poundstretcher, we have a huge variety of bargain plastic storage containers so you can de-clutter your home for less!

    In light of the student season; where young, unsuspecting 18 year olds head of to their brand new digs in Fresher’s Halls or returning students are moving onto pastures new and renting a student flat with friends, their new abode will most likely be small and compact– a place unlikely to stay serene and clean in the exam period!

    But, before you let your accommodation dictate your stress levels and, ultimately, effect you achieving your capabilities, check out our amazing selection of plastic storage containers below, hand-picked for students struggling to keep things organised and tidy!

    32-LITRE UNDER BED PLASTIC STORAGE BOX

    The best way to save space is by utilising the space already taken up by something else. Under the bed is a great way to store items you may not need immediately. In the summer, free your wardrobe up ready for t-shirts, shorts and flip-flops by taking out all of your winter accessories like coats, wellies, scarves, hats, gloves and woolly jumpers.

    But where to put them?

    Fold everything up and pack it into one of our 32-litre Under bed plastic storage boxes. At ONLY £3.99 EACH or 3 for £10, you can store anything that you know you won’t need for a while in this plastic storage container and slide it neatly under your bed.

    It’s as if it never existed! And, because it’s sealed and plastic, it is durable and will keep all the contents dry (in the unfortunate case that maybe you leave the window by your bed open in torrential rain!), as well as being easy to slide out so, you can still access everything you need!

    And when the winter comes again, you can pull out your cosy clothes and replace the box with all your summer essentials!

    42-LITRE PLASTIC STORAGE BOX

    Another way of utilising space that’s already being used is putting things on top of things. Our 42-litre plastic storage box can be slid up on top or in the top shelf of your wardrobe. It’s a great way of storing shoes or bags, as it’s deep but durable.

    As well as your bedroom, this 42-litre plastic storage box would be perfect to contain all of your kitchenware. Pans, appliances and plastic Tupperware could all be stacked in this box and, with it being 42-litre, it is at the perfect size to store it in your assigned kitchen cupboard in a tidy way!

    It’s a great way to keep your cupboard organised without having to worry about stacking neatly every time you put something in there! Plus, with its lid, you can keep everything fresh and dry, safe from leaky sinks!

    They are just a couple of ways to use this plastic storage box but it is at that handy size where it is definitely multi-faceted. At ONLY £4.99 EACH or 2 for £9, this is the ultimate student’s must-have bargain storage solution product!

    80-LITRE COLOURED PLASTIC STORAGE BOX

    For your bulkier items like spare pillows, blankets, bedding sets or towels, this 80-litre plastic storage box is sufficiently deep so is great for the bigger things that you have nowhere to keep them.

    It has a sealed lid meaning that whatever you keep in there, it will be kept safe from damp or dust, so you can leave it on the top of your wardrobe with no worries!

    It also comes in three simple but bold colours; green, red and blue, so it will give your room a splash of colour, as well as keeping it organised and tidy!

    This plastic storage container is ONLY £8.99 EACH or 2 for £13 (for if you’ve got more things to store away than you thought!).

    4 DRAWER PLASTIC STORAGE TOWER

    For your smaller bits and bobs, we have an extremely useful 4 drawer plastic storage tower!

    The tower is approximately H79cm x 39cm x 39cm so it won’t take up a lot of room. It would be great for having next to your desk to keep additional, non-essential note-pads, pens or folders in.

    Or, if you’re short of drawers for clothes, why not use the plastic storage tower for underwear, socks or hosiery, freeing up the other furniture for the heavier items like jeans, jumpers or hoodies?

    Another use for this plastic storage tower would be for jewellery, make-up, odd bits like swimming goggles or spare batteries– the tower is such a useful size and shape that the possibilities of storage are endless!

    The 4-drawer plastic storage tower is available at your local Poundstretcher for ONLY £12.99 EACH! With so many uses for it, this is a bargain student storage solution!

    3-DRAWER PLASTIC STORAGE DESK TOWER

     

    This final plastic storage solution is perfect for students with somewhere to keep all those loose ends of papers and notes that (inevitably) get strewn dismissively on the desk after a lecture to get ready for the student event of the night!

    So, instead of missing valuable time socialising with friends after class, pick up a plastic storage tower for your desk!

    With 3 drawers, you can organise it whichever way you like so that pens, papers and notes are always collated in some sort of order!

    At a bargain £7.99 EACH it’ll be money well spent when it comes to revising in the exam periods!

    Neat and Tidy!

    So, grab a bargain today at Poundstretcher and check out your local store for more amazing value space-saving plastic storage. Make student life stress and clutter-free TODAY!

  • 5 MUST HAVE Argan Oil Hair Care Products for £5

    Argan Oil: The Secret to Gorgeous Hair!

    614x363 argan oil bottle

    Argan oil, in recent years, has become THE must have product for healthy hair. Sourced from the kernels of Moroccan Argan trees, Argan oil has become known as ‘liquid gold’ for its ability to transform hair, through the huge amounts of nutrients it contains, such as Vitamin E and fatty acids.

    614x363 Argan Kernels

    We, at Poundstretcher, understand the importance of healthy hair but don’t think you need to spend the earth! Argan oil is in popular demand and can be pricey but we have huge bargains on our Argan oil hair products so you can revitalise your hair for less!

    Transform Your Hair with Argan Oil for £5 at Poundstretcher!

     

    1. Rejuvenating Shampoo with Argan Oil Extracts

    Argan Oil Shampoo, 300ml Argan Oil Shampoo, 300ml

    Argan oil shampoo is a great product to use on a daily basis. Many shampoos can strip the natural nutrients needed to keep your hair healthy and can leave your hair drab, dry and fragile.

    614x363 Damp Hair applying Argan Oil

    The Argan oil extracts in this shampoo nourishes and moisturises your hair, replenishing day-to-day damage caused by elements like the sunshine, and maintaining a consistent healthy glow.

    The consistent use of Argan oil shampoo will ensure your hair will always be soft, smooth and strong, as well as being protected and nourished!

    1. Luxurious Conditioner with Argan Oil Extracts

    This day-to-day conditioner is sumptuously hydrating, leaving your hair silky smooth! 

    Argan Oil Conditioner, 300ml Argan Oil Conditioner, 300ml

    Many conditioners can look and feel like they’ve enriched your hair just after washing but, after a couple of hours, your hair feels greasy at the roots, dry at the tips and looks, all together, sorry for itself!

    What you need is a conditioner that’s going to truly replenish the moisture back into your scalp, roots and tips and maintain it throughout the day.

    614x363 Blonde Healthy Hair

    This Argan oil conditioner will hydrated your hair, leaving it feeling sumptuous, shiny and frizz-free for the whole day. Argan oil is also a truly exceptional ‘detangle’r so is especially effective on hair that’s regularly bleached or is naturally thick and curly!

    The shampoo and conditioner combination are great for busy people who have no time for leave-in conditioners but still want hair that ‘WOW’s!

    1. Heat Defence Spray with Argan Oil Extracts

    Nowadays, most people use straightening irons, curling tongues or, at the very least, a hair dryer. The emphasis is usually: the hotter the tool, the better the results.

    614x363 Heat Damage Hair

    That is, until the day after the night before and your hair is dry, brittle and knotted into one big hairball…

    One of the best ways to enjoy styling your hair without worrying about the ‘next-day’ repercussions is using a heat defence spray.

    614x363 Heat hair tools

    Although there are many to choose from, this leave-in heat defence spray with Argan oil extracts is a high contender. Because Argan oil is naturally packed with nourishing oils, vitamins and fatty acids– a formula that ensures complete protection of your hair’s nutrients and moisture under hot temperatures.

    All you do is apply it generously to damp hair from root to tip, to ensure your entire head is thoroughly protected.

     

    Heat Defence Leave-In Spray Heat Defence Leave-In Spray, 150ml

     

     

    So, if you’re a busy bee who hasn’t got time to sit around and wait for your hair to dry naturally or you love styling with straighteners or curlers, this is the perfect product to make sure you hair stays looking bouncy and healthy, whatever your lifestyle!

    1. Hydrating Argan Oil Hair Mask

    Everyone needs a good pampering session every now and then. Whatever kind of hectic life you live, it’s important to have some time out to treat yourself!

    614x363 Argan oil and kernels spilled

    This Argan Oil hair mask is one of those ‘low capital, high yield’ type beauty investments. Although there is the minor process of massaging the sumptuously creamy mixture into your hair and ensuring it covers it from root to tip, that is basically it.

    Argan Oil Hair Mask, 220ml Argan Oil Hair Mask, 220ml

    This hair mask relies specifically on leaving it alone for a length of time on your hair so is a fantastically low maintenance beauty product for those ‘no-fuss’ type people!

    You can even wrap your hair in a towel and leave it in over night! Then just wash it off with shampoo and conditioner to reveal nourished, rejuvenated and incredibly shiny hair!

    614x363 Laughin shiny hair

    This pot of ‘magical’ cream is a bargain from Poundstretcher and requires barely any effort with truly amazing results!

    Who says you have to spend endless hours and hundreds of pounds to get healthy, beautiful-looking hair?!

    1. Argan Oil Hair Treatment

    Argan Oil Hair Treatment, 50ml Argan Oil Hair Treatment, 50ml

    No matter how well we try to look after our hair, life can still take its toll so sometimes you need to put a little extra time and effort into keeping it healthy.

    614x363 hair with treatment

    With this intensive hydrating hair treatment, the Argan oil is high in antioxidants, which means it is great for repairing and rejuvenating damaged hair! As well as this, it helps lock in much-needed moisture, leaving your hair shiny and strong!

    614x363 Strong Hair

    This hair treatment is also a miracle worker if your hair has frizzy tendencies, too. You can use it like an ointment to transform your hair, whatever the weather, leaving it smooth without losing volume.

    Basically, forget Harry Potter or Unicorns– this Argan oil hair treatment is magic in a bottle!

  • Fresher's Cleaning Tips!

    Fresher's Cleaning Tips!

    During fresher’s week, cleaning is definitely going to be in the back of your mind. However, you’ll soon learn who the messy housemates are so we’re here to provide you with some useful tips on keeping your accommodation clean and tidy and to help you keep on top of it without breaking the bank!

    Keep your room in check

    Your room is where you will be spending most of your time and it’s the one place where you will be able to escape and relax. Maintain a calm and clean environment by making sure you put things back in place and not creating the clothes pile on a chair you see in most uni rooms!

    messy bedroom with random items everywhere like laptop, pillow, paper ect. Bed is unmessy and mirrors on the wall are not straight

    Keep your room organized with our 3 desk storage tower that will be great for when you move your stuff in and need extra space to put everything! Uni rooms can be small so you will need all the storage space you can get!

    Clean at least once a week. Dust builds up very fast and it takes less than 5 minutes to give everything a wipe down with some polish or grab some of our clean term surface wipes that will wipe away all the nasty germs effortlessly. You don’t want to make yourself ill from the environment around you!

    Communal Areas

    This is where the mess and the arguments generally evolve from! If you are living in shared accommodation, you will have a communal kitchen, bathroom and if you’re lucky living room facilities! Students are expected to look after the communal areas and to make sure mess does not build up. After all, you want your deposit back at the end of the year!

    As much as you think you have escaped from your parents, you’ll get constant nagging from your housemates if communal areas are kept unclean. To avoid this lots of students tend to make a rota to make sure everyone does their bit. Nobody wants to be known as the slobby housemate!

    Bathroom

    Nobody wants to clean the bathroom and it isn’t the most pleasant of jobs but it has to be done!

    • Always make sure the toilet is flushed
    • The seat has been wiped
    • Loo rolls have been emptied and replaced
    • Rinse the shower and spray our shower spray to spruce it up a bit - especially if you’re shaving!
    • Girls- make sure you pick up your long hairs so you don’t block the drain

    Stock up on our bleach and air fresheners to make sure the bathroom is kept smelling fresh!

    Kitchen

    In shared accommodation, dishes pile up pretty quick and you may end up with people refusing to do them (we speak from experience). You might want to try washing as you go or split the chores between drying and washing so it’s faster! Whichever way works for you in the end but make sure you have all the essentials to tackle those dirty dishes!

    We personally love our Fairy Liquid Sensitive which makes sure our hands don’t dry up as well!

    The fridge is another problem area in shared accommodation! Make sure you are constantly throwing out old food and cleaning your shelves so it doesn’t become smelly and a place for mould to grow!

    Make sure you keep all your meals and leftovers for the next day in food containers so it’s still fresh the next day and saves you money from buying lunch!

    Last but not least, make sure you hoover or at least sweep up! Hoovers and brushes are normally provided in university halls but if you live in private accommodation, pick up our Dustpan and brush!

    You don’t want to let any pesky mice, rats or insects invade your halls, we don’t think your housemates would appreciate it!

  • Essentials You Need For Uni Under £100

    Essentials You Need For Uni Under £100

    Back to school is finally upon us once again! To help out you parents who are rushing around to get the last bits before the term starts, we at HQ have put the ultimate list together for those of you whose children are off to university this year!

    We know how pricey sending your kids off to uni can be so we thought we’d step in and create an ‘everything you need for uni for under £100’ guide! Thank us later!

    We have everything covered from kitchen utensils to bedroom décor to stationary all at bargain prices.

    First up is getting their uni halls bedroom looking good because we all know how unappealing student halls look.

    We have great duvet sets from just £7.99 that will brighten up the room and get the space looking cosy. Why not grab some throws whilst you’re at it for only £7.99, for those chilly nights or for some extra comfort!

    On to the kitchen! We have a great selection of items for your freshers to get their chef skills on!

    We have woks and sauce pans from £2.99 and a 16 piece cutlery set also at £2.99, giving the new uni students no choice but to cook proper meals! We suggest grabbing the bright and colourful crockery so they don’t get their cutlery mixed up.

    With all that cooking going on, they’ll need to store all that food somewhere. We have lunchbox’s and food storage containers from 99p, so they can save money on food by taking their own lunch to uni!

    Don’t forget to pick up some glasses and mugs from 99p to add to their essential uni list! They’ll need that cup of coffee every morning!

    Now that they’re flying the nest, the teens will have to make sure they are washing their dirty clothes and we have hampers for £4.99 and clothes airer's for £7.99, to make they have somewhere to put their laundry and gets dried properly. To make yourselves feel better, you can also grab washing powder at ridiculously cheap prices to make sure they have enough for the year!

    Whilst we’re on the subject of keeping their clothes clean, grab some of our bath towels from £3.99 as you can never have too many towels!

    University halls tend to have small rooms and not a lot of storage, which is why we also have that covered for you! Pick up our 4 drawer storage box for £12.99 to ensure everything is organized and they don’t end up having a messy room!

    You can’t forget the little essentials either. Batteries are something everybody needs because they never know when they might be needed. A cable extension is also a necessity in a uni room! Having just a few plugs scattered in random places can be annoying, so why not pick one of ours up for £3.99 to keep all the cables together rather than having wires everywhere!

    Last but not least, your teen is off to get a degree and how can they do that without basic stationary?  We have a huge variety of stationary from as little as 99p that every student needs to ensure they can take notes properly and can study at all times.

    After a couple of weeks at university, they’re bound to get the dreaded fresher’s flu! Stock up on medicine from 19p to get them better in no time!

    With this guide on what to take to uni, your child will be set up in no time and you will have saved enough money to send off to them when they ask for more!
