COMPETITION: Win a cool bundle of JML goodies and gadgets worth £100

I don’t know about you, but once Christmas has been and gone I feel a powerful urge to get the house tidied up, cupboards organised and my life generally ON POINT.

In this spirit, I gave my coat cupboard a bit of a makeover last weekend, which involved putting up some new hooks and corner shelves. It’s hard in my house, because the walls are so solid and I’m not that strong. I have to put my whole weight behind the drill, and sometimes it’s still not enough, so I have quite a few abandoned holes.* Also I’m a bit slapdash with DIY generally, and I decided to do the corner shelves just by eye. It’s best we don’t talk about those I think. Or try to store anything round on them.


Let’s draw attention AWAY from the shelves and TOWARDS this shiny new competition, where you can win a selection of lovely stuff from JML that promises to be far more useful around the house than me:

JML free stuff competition

Thanks to Belle for making this cool image and to JML for donating the prize.

This PRIZE OF A LIFETIME includes:

Together they are worth £97.97 which I feel is close enough to £100 to justify the competition title. I mean, whatcha gonna do, sue me? If you feel particularly hard done by then I’ll throw in a few first class stamps.

If you fancy being in with the chance to win this lovely prize, all you have to do is complete as many of the entry options in the widget below as possible. The more you do, the higher your chances of winning. The competition will close at 11.59pm on 31/1/2018. Full T&Cs apply. Thanks too to JML for donating the prize.

Good luck!

    Gleam has worked fine for me so either its fixed or I’m just in the right place at the right time!!

    I know what you mean about a good post-Christmas tidy although mine consisted of getting MrH to put up 2 new cupboards in the kitchen which I have then promptly collected up and dumped all the “important stuff” that was left out on the worktop into – so lovely gleaming tidy worktop but really really cluttered cupboard – it has doors to hide it though so that’s A-OK!

    I have laminated floors so I’m a big fan of swishing crumbs under the sofa while I’m still in my socks. Its a bit of a mini work out too. Some great tips.

    Great prizes! I love a bit of cleaning kit (but the irony is the worst cupboard is the one under the stairs, if I win I might actually have to clear it out LOL).
