I've even hired a cleaner, she came on Wednesday and already the place looks like a bombsite.
As a result I'm always looking for ways of making the place look tidier. Cute vintagey style ways of course.
Here are some of the latest things I've found for keeping the home tidy - heaven knows if they will work for me...fingers crossed all!
I'm always tearing recipes out of magazines. I may live alone and rarely entertain but that doesn't mean that I shouldn't enjoy cooking should it. I'm hoping the kitsch little recipe box from TCH will help me keep some semblance of order. £7.99
Pet food bags are just ugly. I'd like to replace them with the little retro cat food tin with its lovely deco lettering and handy scoop. also good for keeping the pets out of the bag. Need I say more? £15.99
Sadly I don't have a garden, but if I did this little seed tin would be mine. £7.99
Clothing storage - ugh! Well, after reading this inspiring post on the wonderful Lottie Loves blog, I have decided to give the closet a clean out. I have bought some lined wicker storage baskets from Tesco (£32.68) to store my out of season clothes (great recommendation from Penny Dreadful) and have started sorting through the frankly obscene amount of clothing I have crammed into my huge double wardrobe. I suspect I need a friend to help tell me what suits and what really doesn't but for now just thinning it a bit will help.
So that is just a few ideas - let me know if you can help me with further pretty and practical storage ideas.
