Tackle decluttering first

Before you organise your home, you need to tackle all the clutter. When deciding whether to keep an item, ask yourself the following two questions ...

The basket system makes it easier to organise items into categories, meaning you can avoid a mismatched mayhem of cupboards. Plus, by sorting your cupboards with baskets, you can access the things you need much easier, and it will be quicker to clean.

Consider when youwill need items

When choosing where to store items, ask yourself when you’ll actually need to use them. Considering the arrangement of the content in your cupboards can be helpful when keeping your home organised as you know where everything is placed, so you don’t need to rummage through all your cupboards when you need to find something.

Regularly stocktakeand rotate

Get into the habit of stock taking in your kitchen and rotating food once a week, ideally before you plan your meals and do your grocery shop.
