Other than the bedroom, the kitchen has the potential to be the messiest part of the home. So, here are quick and easy ways to organise the kitchen and minimise the mess.

BUY SQUARE CONTAINERS

The next time you buy food containers, go for clear and squarish ones instead of the opaque round designs – they take up less space in the cabinet and fridge, and let you see what's inside.

LABEL YOUR FOOD

Keep a roll of masking tape and a marker in the topmost kitchen drawer so you can easily label containers to mark what's inside them.

KEEP YOUR PLASTIC BAGS IN ONE PLACE

Tuck large plastic bags into plastic- bag dispensers and small ones into an empty tissue-paper box – sorting them by size makes it easier to find what you need.

KEEP IT IN SIGHT

Place leftovers at eye level in the fridge so you can see them right away.
