A MONEY-SAVING fanatic was left stunned after comparing the prices of DIY products at B&M and B&Q.
Beth took to her Budgeting Mum page on TikTok to share a video comparing the cost of 10 items in the two stores, and couldn't believe the £25 price difference between the two.
She began with Painters Touch Spray Paint, which was £14.99 in B&Q and just £6.99 in B&M.
Frog tape was £6.99 in B&Q and £4.99 in B&M, while No More Nails was £5 in B&Q and £3.99 in B&M.
Dulux testers were £2.25 in B&Q, the Quick Dry paint was £21 and the Easy Care Bathroom paint was £26.
Meanwhile, in B&M, the testers were £2, the paint was £19 and the bathroom paint was also £26.
