With the world of Instagram currently going crazy for Stacey Solomon with her latest family addition; Peanut her rescued Dachshund, the release of her book; ‘Tap to Tidy’ and the most exciting of all… the news of her very own television programme on BBC! Named ‘Sort your life out’ Stacey will coach six families over the course of a week to declutter and organise their homes.
Stelrad have created a list of 6 easy and effective ways to organise and decluttering your kitchen, see the list below:
How many times have you gone to get a bag of crisps out of the packet but it’s empty and no one has placed the packet in the bin? With the tension rod trick that will be a memory of the past. Simply place a tension rod between the two sides of your kitchen cupboard. With curtain ring clips click on all of your favourite crisps and snacks and then simply slide them onto the tension rod. This then allows you to see what snacks you have and easy access to them!
A simple but effective organisation method for your fridge is for you to have boxes and trays of each different food group and label each box with what’s the content. For example, have a box for all salad, then one for vegetables, meats, dairy and so on. This then allows you to be able scan your fridge and find what you’re looking for quickly. This is also great for stopping cross-contamination!
Tinned food fills cupboards all over the nation but do you really know what tins you have? They’re all piled up in the backs of cupboards leaving you unable to read the labels. However with this super easy trick using a lazy susan you’ll always know how many tinned beans you have! Lazy susans are available online and in most UK supermarkets simply place one in your cupboard and fill with your tinned foods facing the labels at the front – this then allows you to spin the lazy susan and see exactly what tins you have!
Available on Amazon for less than £10.00 are wine glass racks which you either drill into the top of your cupboards or slide onto the shelf. Once the rack is in place you’re able to slide in your wine glasses. This helps keep them clean and organised and most importantly stops little ones from reaching up for a glass and accidentally knocking and breaking them and potentially hurting themselves!. Because after the year we had wine has never been so important!
Baskets and Jars
A great hack for keeping your kitchen cupboards tidy is investing in baskets and jars, these are available online and in most bargain based shops. Transferring foods such as spices, cereals and kinds of pasta into jars labelled keeps the cupboards looking uniform, easy to find everything and also saves lots of space! Not only transferring foods into labelled jars but also having baskets for all related foods that are unable to be transferred into jars does the same job.
One of the cupboards that is most difficult to organise and keep tidy is the oven tray/dishes. However, using a drawer pegboard laying flat on the bottom of the cupboard/drawer, use the pegs that are sticking upwards to lean your trays up against. This then allows them to all in order of size and is easy to grab which one you’re looking for!
