How to Optimize your Kitchen & Fridge Storage this Spring

It’s been a year since I organized my kitchen cabinets and fridge yet spring cleaning is one of the most important ways to organizing and optimizing your kitchen cabinets and storage. It’s a great way to find if there are things that needs a replacement like most items that get expired or no longer good to use.
It all started when I was gazing at some nice super-organized kitchens on social media about last year when the lockdown started and wanted to turn mine into them, although my kitchen always looked clean and organized but not Pinteresty organized. I found that all you need is a little time to look for inspiration! I have been looking into my Pinterest page and some creators made me wow. It really doesn’t matter if you have a kitchen small or big, old or new – you can work on it and make everything look nice.

Just 3 points that you need to make your kitchen look nice and organized:

  1. Clean out everything
  2. Buy organizers
  3. Organize by shelves and bins

The best way to easy store/access my food container lids. It has made my life so much easier to keep them in one place.

__________________________________

We had our minds set on a purchase of a new fridge for quite some time but because what has been going on regarding COVID made us wait. We owned the Kenmore Refrigerator for more than 10 years now and it was definitely a good choice. Just last year we find that we needed to replace the fridge for some technical issues that it showed up.

We finally decided to purchase the Samsung Stainless Steel 36″ Wide French Door Refrigerator from Leon’s. We had limited options because we had to keep in mind that we have a custom built-in fridge cabinet in our kitchen.

I absolutely love the clean and sleek look of it and most importantly the inside space that really impressed me.

Here are few things you need to create & keep the space clean and tidy:

  • Clean out your fridge every time you shop for groceries especially if you’re are a family of more than 3 or 4. It plays a huge difference not only in the look of your fridge but you also get to see or use the leftover items that are setting in there before it gets rotten.
  • Buy organizers and before you do make sure to measure your fridge so you have that nice and clean fitted look. There are quite different organizers – it really is in your hands on how you want to organize.
  • Organize by shelves and bins. It’s really important to know how to place them in the fridge so they stay fresh and last longer. Fruits and Veggies go at the very bottom so want them nice and crisp. Since we eat lots of veggies and fruits I decided to dedicate the lower drawers to veggies and the lower-middle section to fruits.
  • The two top section leaves in for eggs, milk and leftover food, yogurts, cheese and drinks.

I hope you find this post helpful. The entire process took me some time to establish but once everything is all set, you really going to enjoy the clean & organized look. I linked everything you need for kitchen organization in this post.

Nest Fragrances | Wild Mint & Eucalyptus Collection

Spring is one of my favourite seasons and I have been doing more organizing/spring cleaning for the past couple of weeks to reset and refresh my space for the season. And I get super excited when I find new spring home scent launches.
Nest Fragrances just launched their new spring home collection Wild Mint & Eucalyptus Collection, which is quite exquisite. Home scents help pick up my mood each season, and especially for the past year, I have been getting more involved in burning candles + home scent products. Yet I have never sniffed such a fresh and addicting scent that calms me down.

Wild Mint & Eucalyptus Collection is a blend of wild mint and eucalyptus scent with basil and ginger notes. It helps awaken your sense and has quite soft earthy and woody notes. It carries the same classic look yet this time it comes in the most darling mint green shade that is eye candy.

Top Notes:

  • Wild Mint
  • Eucalyptus
  • Sage

I changed my home decor for the Spring/Summer season by replacing my accent home decor with soft pastel pink & greens and this new home scent collection really complements it well.

Many of you know my relation with Nest Fragrances home scents. I love the high quality and performance of the candles and reed diffusers. While Nest Fragrances always surprise me with their seasonal collections. This collection is meant to create a wellness sanctuary atmosphere in your home with a blend of aromatic scent that ignites your spirit. I literally go closer to the candle and reed the diffuser to sniff it. I have linked the items featured below + you can find Nest Fragrance’s Wild Mint & Eucalyptus Collection available at Sephora & Saks Fifth Avenue.
