My love of shopping channels began when I was about 7 I think. Mum was doing some decorating at her friends house, who was super rich. I could tell she was rich because she had more than 4 TV channels (plus S4C that none of us really understood) and somehow I ended up watching a lady on QVC try and sell me a plastic microwave bacon crisper.
I've always been a bit weird about that sort of thing though. I would read the Betterware catelogue cover to cover when it popped through the door, and follow my mum about the house pointing out the REALLY SUPER UBER USEFUL THINGS that it sold. I'm still a bit like that with the Lakeland website. I mean, who doesn't need a banana bag to stop your 'nanas going mouldy?
I was at my best friends house one day, and was flicking through the channels (as you do) and ended up on A WHOLE CHANNEL DEDICATED TO JML.
But look at this:
The Halogen Oven is basically one of those Eazy Bake ovens they talk about on Friends quite a bit, but we never got in this country. (My A-La-Carte Kitchen was good, but could it make cake?)
The "Perfect Brownie" maker makes individual brownie portions for you so each slice is crispy on all sides
The EZ Cracker...no, I'm sorry, I can't think of a use for this.
With JML products, you get the impression that they're seeing what tat people will buy.
This gym bag will apparently help to combat those bad smells from your PE kit. (Mine never smelled, but thats because it spent most time in the washing basket where I couldn't see it.
I've written previously on my blog about my hatred for Snuggies and Slankets. Basically, someone went to Ikea (the wonderful land of hot dogs and mini Daim bars), bought a cheap blanket and sewed some sleeves into
it. WELL DONE WHY NOT CHARGE £25 FOR IT.
I don't even understand how these glasses work. They don't fall off because they have magnets in them? If thats right, these magnets have to be strong enough to attract through your temples, and that's something I don't think I want near my head.
I think I had one of these as a kid. Oh dear.
Ah! The reason for this post. I've been looking at these on the JML stand in Asda for a while, but couldn't think why I would want to pay £10 for bits of plastic. Sarah then pointed me towards eBay where I got some for £2.50 delivered. I'm still waiting for them, but OOH EXCITED.
I've tried to sum up the amazingness of JML in this post, but sadly it can't be done. Just go watch the TV channel and try to resist going "ooh, thats handy" at one thing.
