The sun has been shining over the thinkmoney offices this week, which has inevitably got us thinking about the bank holiday weekend. If it stays like this, we predict there will be many barbies fired up - perhaps for the first time this year - all over the country.
What could be better than a day grilling in the sun for a little bit less? Helen's barbeque deals could help you do just that.

Mouth-watering deals on BBQ food and drink
What's a barbeque without lots and lots of food and drink? Here are some deals that could help fill you up over the bank holiday weekend:
You can get three packs of ten beef burgers - a full thirty burgers - for £10 in the BBQ deals from Asda. That should keep everyone going for a while.
At Sainsbury's you can get three packs of eight large pork sausages for just £5. That works out at about 20p a sausage!
To wash it all down, two boxes of 12 bottles of Coors Light are £15 from Tesco. The wine drinkers among you might enjoy this Turner Road Reserve rosé from Morrison's - it's half price at £4.99. For those who enjoy a cold cider in the garden, 12 cans of Magners Original are £8.99 at Waitrose (so they're 25% off).
