      I have actually got that laundry basket, I did buy mine from lakeland, I think I paid about 18 for it, it really is a good product, I certainly didn't pay 25 + P&P, they were throwing in pegs too, but would
      that plump the price up, who knows.

      The most annoying had to be the demo of the laundry basket. OK it has folding legs - it get it! Why they kept having to keep folding and unfolding the legs I really do not know. Maybe they just liked the loud clacking sound it made?

      Let us now look at how much their prices were compared to the dreaded "high street."

      PRODUCT / QVC PRICE / HIGH STREET PRICE

      Aluminium foil 20 / 2
      Cleaning spray 12 / 2
      Laundry basket 25 / 5
      2 heavy duty bags 15.50 / 2
      Drain cleaner / unblocker 15 / 1


      High street saving on the above lot totals a jaw-dropping, uber expensive 75.50 which would be more than enough to pay for a bucketful of eek rings or that fashion-forward dress you were thinking of gifting to your girlfriend.
      I wonder who actually buys all this stuff. Methinks there can't be that many people that would buy all the above from QVC. I mean, just how many agoraphobic, telly-watching, OCD women with bad backs who like carrying house bricks around in tin foil are there? Had the census questioned this I'd hazard a guess that it would have uncovered that around 0.000000000000000000000000000000001% of the UK population would fit into this category.

      Did you hear that silly guest talk about "peg matching" your pegs on the washing line? I mean, what planet must she live on to care about such things?

      I find that very disconcerting. However,they would say anything to make a sale or multiple sales.If she really is OCD over pegs she would need therapy if she saw my mixed plastic /wood multicoloured ,chipped ,sun bleached offerings.

      Not gonna lie, when I'm hanging up washing, the pegs have to match on each item...but I certainly wouldn't use my simmering OCD as a marketing tactic, far from it!

      Well I got some plain wooden old-fashioned pegs for 30 cents from the Maxima supermarket in Palanga and they do a sterling job. I'm very pleased with my cheap pegs. And guess what? They all match perfectly!!!!!!

What sensible person would pay 22 for a sink unblocker when 1) they shouldn't be pouring fat down the sink drain anyway and 2) one can always purchase a sodium hydroxide-based product from the Pound Shop?
      Bought a similar laundry basket from Lidl's about a year ago at 5

      I guess we all have our funny little ways. I am quite obsessive about vacuuming my cars and get very upset whenever I find any of those little stones in the footwell. I also am very particular about cleaning my fridge with my Astonish anti-bacterial spray (bought from the 1 shop) and I am always cleaning the screen on my smartphone with hand sanitiser gel.
