Lakeland is a well known British company that sells cooking items and accessories, cleaning and gardening solutions and gifts.
The family firm has been trading for around 50 years and began by just selling freezer bags. They currently have 60 shops, a catalogue and a website.
The companies philosophy is 'always look after the customer and the business will look after itself'.

Mixed Pack Klippits
Pack of 48 in various sizes and colours:
The Lakeland website state that these are one of their most popular items - and I have to agree.
They are a very clever and yet simple idea in that when the clip is closed the two sides form an airtight seal.
I have bought some of these clip fasteners from £1 shops in the past but the hinges are never very strong. These Kippits from Lakeland are virtually indestructible - unless you try to damage them on purpose.
They are made in strong colourful plastic is different colours - white, yellow, red, blue and green.
Lakeland state that 'the unique hinge can be flexed thousands of times without weakening' - and I agree.
It is such a simple idea but so useful. They give an airtight seal and can be used for anything. My main use when I bought these ages ago was to seal up opened packets in my huge freezer - as using the wire wrap tags was never so good and we often ended up with spilt items in the bottom of the chest freezer.
If you wanted to you could use the different coloured clips for different contents but I never bothered and just used the first one that came to hand. They are great for things like opened packets of peas, mixed vegetables and roast potatoes.
Outside the freezer they also have many uses - the basic one is for opened cereal packets - we often have quite a few opened at once and these clips keep them really fresh - and my son would refuse to put back the wire tags I used to use. I also use them for opened packets of bread and the large bags of salt - that once opened tend to spill everywhere!
There has never been a problem with any of my clips and they just get a quick wash every now and again and then reused. The spare ones are just kept in my utensil drawer ready for the next use.
These should last you indefinitely, and they do, though I am sure people take mine and do not bring them back! As, like socks, they tend to disappear - but that is not the fault of the items.
I have no Lakeland shop nearby but do occasionally order from their website - I order items together so as to qualify for the free postage.
There is never any problem returning any items and their customer service, to me, has been excellent.
I am sure there are many other uses for these clips - including fastening the rolled down tops of gardening seed packets that are only partly used.
Unlike lots of other things I see that Lakeland sell, which I often think are money wasting gadgets that you will never use - these clips will be in constant use and although the price may seem a lot - for 48 clips it works out at around 17p per clip - a truly remarkably low price for a virtually indestructible item.
