4. Organize your tights

Rather than bundling them in your drawer, loop tights over hangers and store them in your wardrobe.


5. Keep cakes fresh with bread

Pre-bake your cakes and keep them fresh overnight by placing a slice of bread on top. In the morning your bread will be hard as a rock but the cake will remain moist, ready to ice. 


6. Use milk bottles for pencil storage

Grab a craft knife and recycle your large plastic milk bottles in to pencil holders. Extra points if you go all OCD and file them by color.



7.Mount cutlery drawers for jewellery

Wall mount cutlery trays and add a suction cup hook in each compartment for brilliant jewelery storage. Get the instructions at Mini Manor.


8. Make a non-slip dish cloth

Attach a strip of velcro to your tea towel, loop over your oven door handle and join the ends – voila, a non-slip dish towel!




9. Keep cans in a magazine file

12. Cook while you’re not home

Here’s a pro tip for mid-week meals. Prepare all the ingredients for multiple slow cooker meals at once, then dump them in to bags and freeze. When you’re ready to cook, simply take a bag out, throw the ingredients in to the cooker and turn it on. When you come home from work, dinner is waiting.
