Tip 1: Take advantage of under sink space 

We love a wall hang sink, but it may be impractical for small HDB toilets.

If don’t want to clutter your sink with beauty or toilet products, use the space under your sink. But don’t just throw your stuff under the sink’s cabinet – sort them in order by getting some affordable dividers and containers, or even a multi tier pull out drawer.

Try this:


Spacekeeper Under Sink Organiser

The organiser’s bottom pull-out drawer enhances item visibility and accessibility. It is equipped with four removable dividers for personalised organisation and multiple hooks for hanging various items. Setting up the organiser requires no tools, allowing for quick assembly in just a few minutes.

Tip 2: Maximise pantry space by using vertical storage organisers

Instant food is a staple in many households, but they can clutter up your pantry quickly if not organised properly. For example, you can use a vertical organiser to keep your instant meals neatly stacked and easily accessible. This not only saves space, but also makes it easier to keep track of your stash.

Try this:

Tip 3: Consolidate your condiments with multi-tiered storage racks

Singaporean BTO dwellers probably don’t have the luxury of huge kitchen space unlike organisational TikTok videos with an entire drawer dedicated to spices and condiments. 

So, what do we do? Enter multi-tier storage racks — these take up very little space, and keep all your seasonings in one place. 

Try this:

Tip 4: Store everything in your fridge in clear containers 

Clear fridge organisers not only help you save a lot of space, they also prevent your food from having a shorter life span. 

When your fridge is messy, you’ll take a longer time to see what’s inside, leading to prolonged opening of your refrigerator doors. Due to the influx of warm air (ah, Singapore’s heat), this will cause the temperature inside your fridge to rise, potentially accelerating the decomposition of fresh food. 

By using clear containers to store produce, you’ll be able to see what you have immediately. These fridge bins also serve multiple purposes, and can also be placed in freezers, pantries, cabinets and countertops for storage.

Try this:

Stackable Fridge Organisers (Set Of 7)

Just look at how nicely your fridge can potentially be arranged. At only around $5 per container, we’d say this is a must-buy. 

How you want to use these containers is up to your creativity — besides the fridge, you can use it in the bathroom, pantry, bedroom and toilet. Talk about multi purpose! 

Tip 5: Label everything you have 

From the type of food to expiry dates, paste labels on your containers to quickly identify what needs to be eaten/cooked before it expires.

Or if you’re an avid cleantok viewer and want to organise everything in your house with the same type of storage boxes, you would probably need labels. 

Not only are they super aesthetically pleasing, you’ll also know what’s in stock at a single glance.
