Kitchen Cupboards Looking A Bit Crap? How To Organise Your Food Like A Champ
The Debrief: Kitchen cupboards leaving a lot to be desired? Here's some inspirational ways to sort that shit out.
Jar It Up
Sounds obvious, but have you done it? Well, no, so now’s the time! These jars are easily available in Wilko, supermarkets and even pound shops. It’s a cheap way of ditching the packaging and making your kitchen Pinterest worthy. Plus, Kilner jars stop all the flies getting in and, trust us on this one, you don’t want fly eggs in your quinoa.

Then Take It To The Next Level
If you’re really committed to the cause, decorate your jars with labels in nice colours and handwriting (practice makes perfect). Put them inside a basket or drawer and voila, a super easy way to reach for the pasta when you’re blind from a hangover.

Decorate Inside The Doors
Remember watching Saved By The Bell and seeing all that cute decor inside the locker doors? Well take that + practicality and you’ve got somewhere to see your shopping list AND those heart-shaped Harry Styles cutouts on a daily basis.

Make A Display Of It
Pick out your best foodie bits and make a display of it, to achieve a double whammy of kitchen decor AND storage. Your new fancy jars (see above), olive oil and foreign packaging would look ace here. The tins of tuna and Sainsbury’s Basics chopped tomatoes can hibernate behind closed doors. This shelving unit from Urban Outfitters would work a treat.

Make A Magnetic Spice Rack
OK, OK, breathe, this is GENIUS. IKEA has masterfully created these magnetic pots that are just perfect for a spice rack. Use your newly perfected handwriting skills to make some nice labels and stick them to the fridge for easy access.

Hide Pesky Items This Clever Way
Also genius. Attach a desk file (this wooden pair are good) to the inside of a kitchen cupbaord for a haven perfect for cling film, foil and all that other shit.
Divide Up Your Drawers
Maximise drawer space with tubs to divide up your dry food. Would also work to put all the open packets into different sections, avoiding a rogue leaky bag of sugar. These white ones work well and come in a variety of sizes.
