How to organise your kitchen

With most of us leading such busy lives, the kitchen can be a cluttered and messy place sometimes. But with a few spare hours and some clever rearranging techniques, you'll love cooking up a storm once again.

It’s a great time to get your kitchen sorted. Some easy tips and tricks and a few new products will make your timein the kitchen well-spent.

Firstly, start by getting organised. Set aside a day to empty your fridge, freezer and pantry. Wipe all surfaces and check everything that is put back is still within its use-by date.

Invest in storage containers, and label everything you put into them. Not only will it keep your food fresh, it will make it easy to see at a glance what stocks need replenishing.

Go shopping with a list – it will save time and money. Try online shopping – it’s a great way to stick to your budget. If you go over, you can put things back before you check out – and your shopping is delivered straight to your door!
