Just looking htrough their catalogue and have spent about £200 already on their products.
Are they really good or something that will end up gathering dust?
things like keep fresh things, chopping things, washing machine balls etc

It's a bizarre mix of essentials and fripperies for menopausal women with too much time on their hands. That's what makes it sooooo addictive.

I love the keep fresh green bags. I find they definitely work. If I leave carrots in the fridge w/o the bag they die much earlier than the ones in the bag.

I regularly make a big order online, then think, "bloody hell, do I really need this lot" and wipe it.

Like the sound of the fresh bags though.

Do they do supersize so I can put myself in one?

Love most of Lakelands stuff - but I buy Betterware instead. It's cheaper.

Good Housekeeping tested those washing machine balls and reckoned they didn't get the clothes any cleaner than if they had just been washed without detergent or anything else.
