The kitchen is the hub of the house.
There are so many reasons why your kitchen should be organised.
It really impacts us in a healthy productive way. The kitchen is special because we all spend a lot of time there preparing meals, kids homework, making creations, drinking coffee or making smoothies.
How how many you times have you started a task and had to stop because you can’t find the utensil or ingredient you were looking for or you had brought ingredients you already have because you could not see them or you had not made a list.
So create zones for prepping, cooking and have a pen and notepad to hand to write down when something runs out so you won’t have to remember.
Meal plans and lists of ingredients needed to be used from the freezer and fridge are life lines for me. It takes out the stress of having to think about what to cook for dinner half an hour before.
Keeping a weekly list of recipes and everyone’s favourite meals helps to rotate efficiently and manage your weekly shop better and be mindful of spending.
Having lists for ingredients and recipes also gives you knowledge. Knowledge of knowing what ingredients need stepping up and which fresh food or cupboard sources could be introduced to the weekly plan.
Store all your cook books and recipes and print them out stored in a binder for easy reference.
An organised kitchen is a cost effective kitchen. Use organisers to store and see your products you tend to buy less and no repeat shop. This includes food, utensils and kitchen gadgets and keep receipts for your big purchases in case you need to return any items.
I tend to stick to the first in first out rule using the oldest to the newest items.
Uncluttered counter tops and use glass jars and stashers bags for fridge and freezer items. So pretty and sustainable and they take up much less space.
A clean organised kitchen is a place where you will cook more and look after your body better. It does not matter about the size of your space either if you have a tiny kitchen or a large open plan kitchen you will still benefit from cleanliness and organisation which is so much part of living well. ...

At long last, today is the official release of Simply Living Well!
When I started writing this book in 2018, I couldn’t have known it would go out into the world during a global pandemic. Ironically enough, I wrote it as a tribute to my grandparents and great-grandparents and the resource-conscious mindset that got them through the Great Depression and the Second World War.
In some ways, Simply Living Well is as timely as ever. At home these past few weeks, I’ve cracked it every single day for one recipe or another, my desire to live simply and sustainably never stronger as I wonder what the future might bring. My book looks back as much as it looks forward – a fusion of practices old and new, showing all sorts of ways to shift from a scarcity mindset to a creative mindset, to simplify and slow down, and to live frugally, self-sufficiently, and harmoniously with the natural world. •••
Simply Living Well is available at all major retailers today. It can also be ordered through local, independent bookstores as well as a few family-run businesses. If you’re keen on supporting small shops, be sure to check out: @freckledhenfarmhouse , @helenmilanhome@heritagegoodsandsupply , @junehomesupply. or @bostongeneralstore.
Thank you, always, for your support and pleases tag me if you make something from the book. I would love to see it! ...
Paper towel is a swap that is quite simple to get comfortable with when you quickly realise that it isn't actually as much of a NEED as you once thought.
We love this stack of paper towel alternatives from @practically.simple
A few months ago we made the switch from paper towels to cloth and haven’t looked back. We keep a stack folded in the kitchen and just throw them in the laundry room to wash with our regular laundry every few days. It’s been such an easy switch and one that has had zero pain points. 🌳
Did you know the average household goes through 40lbs of paper towels each year? That’s over 13 billion pounds in the U.S. alone, cutting down 110 million trees per year (and that’s not taking into account all the other resources to produce them). 👍
We still keep a roll in the kitchen for the occasional gross cleanup, but are feeling great about how significantly we’re reducing our paper towel consumption! ...
Feeling beautiful and confident in my own skin and I’m not ashamed to say it. Tag a friend and remind her how beautiful she is [ wearing @shopthewolfpack ] ...
Did you know that Wentworth was featured in The Princeton Review’s Guide to Green Colleges: 2019 Edition? This means that Wentworth is one of the nation’s most environmentally responsible colleges. Wentworth got a Green Rating of 83/99 for our various sustainability efforts including having a formal Sustainability Committee, a Public GHG inventory plan, and making an effort to buy local and organic food. We are very proud to have been included in this selective list. Happy Sustainability Month everyone!
