  • Your GoT Finale Survival Guide!

    It's almost time... Game of Thrones will be coming to a conclusion with its final episode airing in the UK next Monday! Regardless of what you think about this latest season, this is one of those events that is monumental!

    Whether you're watching it as a nice quiet night in or by having a finale party, we have for you the survival guide on what you need to prepare yourself with for this big finish!

     

    1. Tissues (a lot of them)

    The fact the show alone is finishing is enough reason to go through a pack of tissues, not to mention what the various characters will have in store for them.

    So, make sure to stock up on some Kleenex this weekend! You'll probably be needing a lot of them.

     

    2. Snacks & crisps

    A staple for when you're watching any TV show or movie, it's always great to have something tasty like crisps to munch on! Whether you're a fan of Pringles or popcorn, just tip some out into a few bowls and share them around the room!

     

    3. Sweets & chocolate

    Same with the snacks mentioned above, sweet treats are always a fantastic way to enjoy watching TV. Whether you're a chocolate or a sweet fan, we're sure to have everything you could want in our stores.

     

    4. A nice snuggly throw

    Maybe you'll be the type of fan who will wake up in the cold early hours of the morning to watch the finale? If so, be sure to snuggle up in one of our popcorn throws to keep nice and toasty.

    Even if you'll be watching it later in the evening, there's not a whole lot better than being wrapped up in luxurious cosiness.

     

    5. Fizzy drinks

    Coca-Cola, Fanta, 7UP, Monster (if you'll be pulling a late nighter) whatever floats your boat, we have a wide range of drinks to help keep you awake. Just add some ice to it and you have a refreshing drink right there to chill with.

    6. Warm drinks

    It's always lovely to have a hot drink, especially in the middle of the night. No matter how chilling and dark things might look on TV, you can be sure we have hot chocolate, coffee, tea, to help warm you up. Our range is so huge you'll be spoilt for choice!

    Don't forget your marshmallows to create a truly luxurious drink!

     

    7. Candles

    Whilst there are no unicorns in Game of Thrones, you can create a relaxing and magical ambiance with our unicorn sparkle candle. If that's not what you're after, we stock a wide range of other scented and plain candles for you to enjoy!

     

    If you fear it will be a long arduous march to your nearest Poundstretcher, then don't worry! Our amazing Store Finder is just what you need, with map directions, opening hours, contact details and more!

  • Handy Food Storage Hacks For Your Home

    It's that time of year. Whether you're a busy parent preparing packed lunches for your children, or an older student who's on a budget and always on the go, food storage containers are a godsend.

    It's always been a popular idea to be able to store food to eat at a later time, or to even transport food around with you.  Here at Poundstretcher, we have a wide range of food storage options (be it paper or plastic) that are both affordable and handy.

    Keeping Your Lunch Fresh

    Now, when we think storage containers, we think lunch boxes. They're the ideal place to store your sandwiches for lunchtime. That's where these storage boxes (which can easily become lunch boxes) come in, but don't think they're just for adults.

    We have a range that's perfect for children too, ready to take to school! For those wanting the princess life we have these Disney Princess boxes, for the superheroes, we have this Spiderman one, and for the ones who just love Disney in general, we have these fun Mickey and Minnie boxes to give their lunchtime a bit of colour and originality.

    But, how can you wrap up those sandwiches for maximum freshness? Well, we also have Bacofoil non-stick tin foil, the ideal way of keeping the freshness in your grub.

    Keeping Your Food Ready For The Reheat

    Especially when on a budget, you might want to reheat leftovers from dinner, be it for lunch or to have for tomorrow night's dinner. One of the ways to go about this is with this fantastic microwavable lunch box, which includes a plastic knife and fork!

    Or if you have actually made too much dinner and want to store it away for another dinner, then this microwaveable pot is another perfect solution! It's able to hold up to 2 litres, and you can safely warm your food up whenever you want, worry-free!

    What You Can Store in Food Storage Containers

    Well, what can you store in your containers? Anything your heart desires (within reason)! But for the kitchen, you can store things from flour and baking ingredients (ideal for you to live out your Bake Off dreams), leftovers, coffee, and anything else that you don't wish to spoil or expose to air! With airtight storage boxes coming in a range of sizes, you'll be able to keep things nice and fresh.

    Also, why not store your veggies in these Vegetable Storage Bags? They're ideal for keeping them secure and out the way.

    Where To Keep & How To Organise Your Food Storage Containers

    With these handy boxes, you can stash them anywhere in your kitchen with ease. You can store them in the fridge or even in a cupboard for easy access to ingredients and the like. Or even this 5 piece storage container would be useful, it's freezer, microwave, and dishwasher safe!

    But what about freezing, I hear you ask? Well, we also carry a range of resealable food & freezer bags that are absolutely perfect for freezing bread, meats, or anything else you wish to prolong the use-by date. They also make handy bags to store leftovers in the fridge or to stuff your sandwiches into.

    So don't let your home, or even your lunchtime, go unorganised and stale. Nip on down to Poundstretcher for all your food storage needs, and all for affordable prices.

  • Grocery Shopping Made Easy With Poundstretcher’s Grocery List

    Grocery shopping is, for the most part, a daunting task where money is concerned. A lot of emphasis is placed on the average cost of a weekly shop for a family of four, and sometimes it's tough to know what to buy.

    With the start of the academic school year upon us, the need for adding new packed lunch items starts to show itself on our shopping lists. There is even more to buy and the cost seems to go up and up.

    What if there was an easier way? A guide or list of grocery products to give you an idea of what you could be looking for, all for an affordable price? Well, that's what this blog post is all about!

    Breakfast

    Now, we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So why not get the whole family eating something truly delicious and nutritious. You need a boost to get you through the morning, no, not just the morning, but the entire day. It all starts with a hearty dose of these Grain Classic Wheat Biscuits, they're great for everyone and go great with a splash of milk. Those and these Weetabix Weetaflakes are a great way to Carpe Diem.

    What if you need your breakfast on the go? Maybe you just wish to have it in the office later, or perhaps just want to feel the warm oaty taste of Oatburst? Here we have 3 delicious instant porridges for you to sample: original, golden syrup, and apple & blueberry.

    Work/Packed Lunch

    Whether it's for a child or adult, these items are all fantastically affordable that will make any lunch satisfying and filling.

    Let's start with some sandwich fillers. For a tasty treat that's bursting with delicious chocolatey goodness, why not give this Twix Chocolate Spread a try in a sandwich? Nothing screams a special lunchbox treat like some chocolate between bread.

    Or if you wish to go for something a little healthier you can try a sandwich with some Ocean Best TunaGreen Giant Sweetcorn, Baxters Beetroot, or Harwards Silverskin Onion inside, with a good dollop of Hellmans Mayo of course.

    Next, you should really have some fruit thrown in. These Del Monte Peach Halves (or Apricot if you prefer) are great for getting 1 of your 5 a day, that or this Del Monte Light Fruit Cocktail.

    Want a snack in there too? These Wagon Wheels come in a pack of 6 with 2 free, whilst these Higates Flapjacks come in 4 great flavours (white chocolate, original, chocolate, and coconut & cherry). And to top it all off, have these classic Space Raiders to give you that final treat you all deserve. Both the standard pickled onion and the beef flavours are still loved across the recent generations.

    Last, here come the drinks. Get hydrated with these fruity Perfectly Clear Spring Waters, coming in summer fruits, strawberry, and lemon and lime flavours. If water isn't really what you're looking for, then try these Maja Juice Drinks in either orange or multi-fruit. They come in a great pack of 10 and will last the entire week which equates to great packed lunch filler.

    Ready Made Lunches

    So, if you're at home instead (or you wish for a warm and quick meal at the office) then you're in luck! At Poundstretcher you can grab great branded products such as some Heinz Simmer Soup Cream of Chicken or their Tomato Chilli Pasta with a 5 minute cooking time, or these Mug Shot Snack Stops (in sweet and sour noodle, chicken noodle, cheese pasta, and tomato pasta flavours).

    Perhaps you're feeling rebellious and want some Pot Noodle in their Bombay Bad Boy taste sensation? Or Uncle Ben's Rice Time, a great quick-and-easy pot of rice with curry sauce (red Thai, green Thai, and Cantonese) that will give you that warm get-up-and-go feeling you need at lunchtime.

    If curry is more your thing there's also the Curry Express that'll take you on a tasty trip to Savouryville! There are numerous stops, such as korma, rogan josh, tikka masala, and jalfrezi, all that can satisfy anyone's hunger.

    Dinner

    Dinners can become a major hassle, deciding what to have, when to have it, etc. However, here Poundstretcher has a list of everything you would want to have for a weekly shop.

    Starting with pasta and spaghetti, it's something for the kids. These Crosse and Blackwell Kids Shapes come in a variety of different characters, such as those from Star Wars and Frozen. For penne pasta, we have Buitoni's very own. With some Amore plum or chopped tomatoes (or using some Ragu Traditional Chunky Bolognese Sauce),  you can have a tasty Italian dish with ease every time.

    Another day why not try something with rice? Blue Dragon Egg Fried Rice to be exact, or maybe Patak's Pilau Rice instead. With your carbs in place, you can start to add Mai Thai Coconut Milk with some herbs, spices, and chicken to make a delicious Thai curry. It's either that or using Patak's Mild Curry Sauce for a delectable Indian-style delight (with naan and poppadoms, of course).

    There are also fast and convenient dinners available to you. Take this Al'fez Moroccan Easy Cook Meal Kit, which has everything you need to make a tasty meal for two. Pair them up (or any other meal) with peas and beans from Bonners and you have yourself a healthier and greener meal.

    There are so many cupboard-fillers that can be used to make great dinners even better. They include Batchelors Mushy Peas, Goldenfry's Dumpling MixYorkshire Pudding & Pancake Mix, and Gravy Beef Mix.

    Not to mention all the condiments and seasonings you could be adding in, like Heinz Tomato Ketchup and HP Garlic BBQ Sauce. Don't forget the Saxa White Pepper and Salt, Vinegar (great with some chips), and everything from Natural Herbs & Spices.

    Also, what cupboard would be complete without some Flora Pure Sunflower Oil, flour (self-raising and plain) and some sugar?

    Snacks & Drinks

    Now onto the treats and drinks. At Poundstretcher you can be assured you will find coffee, tea, biscuits, and more all for an affordable price. Even whilst on a budget you can still enjoy something sweet and indulge.

    For example, why not get your Bake-Off fix with some baking? These adorable Shaun the Sheep cakes can be made using a simple cake mix. What better way to quench the thirst after a job well done than with some Jucee Summer Fruits with no added sugar.

    If you don't want cordial, then there's Lyons gold roast coffee, Typhoo 100 round tea bags, and Pepsi Max in a 1.5l bottle. Add some Carnation Evaporated Milk and then dunk in some delicious biscuits for a great way to spend the afternoon.
