Plastic Fantastic - Spring Cleaning & Declutter!

The kids start back at school tomorrow and it's time for a massive declutter and spring clean. I really mean business when I say this, we live in a two bedroom flat as a family of four and there is just far to much stuff we have got, so some of it has to go.

I've just bought some lovely plastic containers for sorting some items out. Plastic is a great way of sorting and storing items, it's wipe clean and very durable. The bathroom tubs have freed up the window ledge and makes the bathroom more tidy. We have a basket for the toothbrushes and toothpaste then a curved tub for all the products they we are using and are open. Instead of them being left on the bath, sink and window ledge.

I'm tired of opening a cupboard and things falling on me, the cupboards been full with boxes and half empty packets. I've sorted one box for all my slimming world stuff, so it's all in one place. Then another for the kids packed lunch items and treats. It's so much easier to just grab a box to look though rather than rummaging around in a cupboard.

We also invested in some lovely clear plastic acrylic shelves for Raiden's Funko pops. Not only do they display nice and evenly, they are now easier to dust and keep clean. Where as before we had the, all clumped together not being able to see them. They are all spaced out and tidier. These are a great idea if your child has a huge collection of something which they just want to display rather than place with.

I really start as I mean to go on, these little storage hacks free up so much extra space, I thought we didn't have. Simply Plastics have some great plastic ideas from kitchen splash backs for DIY to replacement table tops. 2017 is definitely the year for sorting and getting myself in to gear.
