Episodes

008 | Entrance  

Where do you dump your keys, wallet and handbag when you come home after a day out? Do you have somewhere to hang bags and leave muddy boots?

We love the function of a mudroom in homes and know that having a separate mudroom isn't feasible for everyone, but finding a way to integrate areas with the same purpose is key to family organisation.

006 | Freezer  

What is hiding in the back of your freezer? Do you have any unidentified frozen objects that could be soup, bolognese or a curry but you're not quite sure?

Kirsty and Amy discuss whether a normal fridge/ freezer combination or upside down freezer is the best and discuss the best way to utilise all the space in your freezer so you can save money and have food on hand when you need it.

From their years of experience, Kirsty & Amy share their experiences around decluttering and organising your freezer.

005 | Fridge  

Have you ever given much thought to how you organise your fridge? What containers go where and which food types are stored in which compartments. 

Fridges can be a breeding ground for mould and spoilt food if not properly cleaned and kept organised. An organised fridge can both save you money at the supermarket and reduce the wasted food you throw out.

From their years of experience, Kirsty & Amy share their experiences around decluttering and organising your fridge.

004 | Pantry  

How many times a day does someone in your family access your pantry? We estimate for most families it's about a dozen times a day. That's a lot!! And you'll save time and money by decluttering your pantry. And how nice is it to cook and eat from an organised pantry.

From their years of experience, Kirsty & Amy share their experiences around decluttering and organising your pantry.
