Whether you’re hosting a Christmas party this year, or the big day is being held at your house, or you just need to create some order during this busy season, getting your kitchen organised will provide you with that sense of calm. Today's post outlines 5 simple steps that will help you prepare for Christmas so you can use your kitchen more efficiently and feel more in control!
There's no denying the kitchen is a place we spend a lot of time in each week.
Whether it's preparing the evening meal, packing lunch-boxes, baking, batch cooking, unloading the dishwasher, putting away groceries, or actually eating a meal, a lot of action takes place in this one area of the home! Which is why it is so important to get it as organised as possible, so you can make the time you spend in there as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.
If you’re finding your kitchen a difficult area to manage - be it lack of space, knowing which storage products are the best or how to clear the clutter - then this post is for you. I’m sharing 9 of the best kitchen organisation ideas that you'll wish you'd known sooner!
That time of the day has come around when you need to prepare the evening meal. You start by pulling out your supplies… and you can feel the frustration already starting to creep in.
The saucepan is easy enough to grab, but the stack of lids starts to spill over and of course the one you need is at the bottom of the pile! You open your utensil drawer, but it’s a jumbled mess and it takes a while to rummage through to find the spoon you need. You want to use your handy chopper to slice the onions, but the blade is buried under a pile of other ‘handy’ attachments that are rolling around the cabinet shelf. It’s little wonder you don’t enjoy cooking!
Can you relate to any of the struggles in this scenario? Some of the biggest frustrations in the kitchen stem from having too much ‘stuff’, a general lack of storage, and difficulty finding and accessing what you’re after.
What you need is an efficient and organised space that takes advantage of every inch of storage, while allowing you to quickly and easily find and retrieve everything you need to cut down on preparation and cooking time. A kitchen that doesn’t leave you feeling stressed and frustrated is a must, as it’s a room we spend so much time in! And I believe the solution to many kitchen organisation problems can be found in one magic item - the simple storage basket.
Do you dread doing laundry?
Do you feel overwhelmed or stressed about the baskets piled high with dirty washing, or the amount of sorting and folding you have to get through on a weekly basis?
Do you feel like you're tackling this chore solo, and feel frustrated that the entire process lies solely on your shoulders?
Laundry is one of those household chores that feels like there's never a real end to, as there always seems to be one of the stages needing your attention - whether it's the pre-sorting, the washing, hanging out the clothes, sorting, folding, ironing, putting away.... And if you let it get out of hand, it can take a huge amount of time and effort to get back on top of it!
