The Lidl sale is in full swing... and this week's offers from the Middle of Lidl on laundry and cleaning buys are must-sees.
As the New Year crawls into action, so does work, school and the deep clean that comes after the Christmas holidays. We're not ready for it! Most of us parted with far too much cash over the festive season, be it on presents, food or drink... now it's time to get back to the real world. Sadly, the real world entails cleaning the carpets that have been royally muddied by guests, ironing school and work shirts and just general household chores! Urgh.
However, it's not all bad news – Lidl has made huge cuts on its already very decent prices and we're super impressed with what they have on offer. Without breaking the bank, you can stock up on new utility gadgets, from a steam generator iron to a heated clothes airer. Save money and time with these efficient, high-tech products that you can still afford on a tight budget!
