Useful Things

Every now and then I go onto the Lakeland site, which is full of useful kitchen and homeware accessories, and fill a cart with useful and extremely grown up things (but not very glamorous items) and then never actually buy them! (Because of the sheer cost, plus I can't believe I'm a real grown up!!!).

But a few weeks ago my husband and I had a trip to Chichester, just because, and there was a bricks and mortar Lakeland, so we went in. I have to admit, I was pretty pleased to see it.

Well before you could say, how much, we had in our very real basket:this very useful bakeware organiser (no more mess in my newly spring cleaned cupboards!) I may go and get another one!

Potato and onion bags, I think they help, my potatoes were not green and took longer to sprout, but I wanted them not to sprout at all, within a week!This fantastic pizza cutter, which my husband picked out, and by chance it's suitable for non stick pans (he didn't notice that).
And he also chose this squeegee, for our very large windows (floor to ceiling) and for our shower. We love this! It's like a toy!
Clearly when you're in an actual shop, you can't just ditch your ready filled basket and walk out, no you have to take it to the cashier's desk and pay! I'm now regretting that I didn't buy this useful stuff earlier!

I love going to Lakeland shop. I seem to buy every gadget known to man in there but..........every gadget I buy from there actually does gets used and not pushed to the back of the drawer like so many gadgets do! I have never been disappointed with my purchases, except when they stop producing a certain item and I want another one of! It should be called the USEFUL SHOP!

It's true, it's a bit like John Lewis, in that you can TOTALLY trust what they sell!
