'I took a trip to the middle aisle of Lidl and found home items for less than £30 - my top five picks'

Browsing the aisles of the 'Middle of Lidl' is truly a wonderful shopping experience for everyone.

The budget supermarket's middle aisle is infamous for stocking a range of unique items and great deals that you didn't know you needed until you see them.

From designer dupe cookware to lawnmowers and ironing boards, the German grocer's middle aisle is truly a treasurer trove of hidden gems that change every Sunday and Thursday.

I, for one, am one of those shoppers who really can't resist a good trip down those iconic middle aisles, even when I have only popped in for some bread and milk.

Who goes into Lidl and expects to only walk out with their groceries and not a new ironing board, blender or kettle?
