Professional declutterer and organiser to the stars, Nicola Lewis (better known as ‘TGCO’ with over 50,000 followers on Instagram), shares her tips for a post-Christmas kitchen that will help you to start off your year right.

Happy New Year everybody! So, who’s taken down their Christmas stuff already?

Traditionally, Christmas decorations are taken down before the 12th night (which is the 6th January). However, I like to make a start on 1st January. I feel it’s a great way to start the new year off clean, tidy and focused for the year ahead!

I place everything into containers or Christmas storage bags ready to be labelled and then placed back into our loft. Others can also try utilizing one of those 10 ft shipping containers for sale for more storage space. This year, I am parting with a few items as we’ve had them a few years, so will be donating them to a charity or whoever would like them by the end of this week. I encourage everyone to get all hands on deck and clean the house. It’s actually an important task to consider adding to your cleaning agenda. The best house cleaning company like House Washing in Lake County IL can clean just about any exterior residential or commercial surface you may need.

The next stage is the fridge and freezer. You may have hosted or attended a Christmas dinner/party, and either way you’re sure to have been stuck with lots of leftovers in your fridge. Most of the contents now won’t get eaten, and some have probably gone bad. The spoiled food may attract mice. I swear by the services of mice control in Melbourne to address any mice problem. Never wait for the infestation to worsen before calling a pest control services company. Start by cleaning out your fridge thoroughly, remove all the Christmas/out of date food and then organise back to normal.  Start the new year clean and fresh – literally!

Next, it’s the kitchen food cupboards. By simply dividing your kitchen cupboards into zones, you will not only be able to keep your food organised, but it will also reduce your meal-preparation time. Another huge benefit is, when writing your shopping lists each week, you’ll be able to keep on top of what you need and keep costs down. Also, if you’re planning to remodel your kitchen and you’re searching for cabinet design trends in 2021 click here.

First, identify food and cooking categories that suit your lifestyle (weeknight dinners, portable lunches, baking, etc.) and then designate an area for each category with the most often-used zones in reach. If you don’t have the space, then you can use cupboard organisers to help. This will prevent waste, as everything will be visible inside. I like to declutter my cupboards every quarter, removing out of date cans and jars.

Remember, what makes a kitchen great is not always about the size or space, it’s about how you organise it. If you know you can’t do all the heavy cleaning alone and have opted to hire a cleaning professional, it’s best to know how often to use a maid service.

Good luck!

  1. […] There are two main types of cabinets that can be manufactured for homes: semi-custom and custom. Modular cabinets are those that can be re-ordered in standardized increments. Stock cabinets are the cheapest, and are usually available in one size that fits all. They are typically only available in a single wood species and can be found at any home improvement store. There is another type of cabinet, which is known as a stock cabinet. If you would like to learn more, have a peek at these guys […]

  2. […] A semi-custom cabinet is one that is not built until you place an order. These cabinets are ready-made but can be customized based on your preferences. This type of cabinet allows you more flexibility and choice than a fully custom cabinet does. For example, you can customize the front of the cabinet, increase or decrease its depth or width, and extend the stiles. This type of cabinet is like a restaurant menu. You get to choose the layout, materials, and style you want, but you’re not bound by that menu. Get additional information click here news […]

  3. […] Choosing a cabinet maker that has a good track record is an important decision for many reasons. Not only does it ensure the quality of your project, but it also allows you to communicate with them easily. If you feel that you’ll be unable to reach a common ground, try hiring someone else. This way, you’ll have a clearer understanding of the differences between the various types of services that each cabinet maker provides. Find additional information check my blog […]
