I’ve just returned from a busy trip to Milan for Salone Del Mobile and Milan Design week. It was back to back meetings and lots of late night dinners with bubbly.
So, how should I unwind from my sleep deprived week, when back in London?
Of course I had to embark on the mammoth task of decluttering and cleaning my fridge.
Before you certify me crazy for this fridge organisation, I have to tell you that cleaning the fridge is actually strangely therapeutic.
Okay, some of you may be shaking your heads now in disbelief, but the task was actually made easier with my new Curver Smart Fresh food containers.
It’s amazing how things accumulate in the back of the fridge when you are too busy to organise, don’t you think?
What I need, is to be able to open my fridge and just know what I have. What I love about the Curver Smart Fresh containers are that they are transparent , so I can do a quick visual sweep on opening and know exactly what I have, and what I can prepare. In fact, I’m a bit embarrassed to say this, but I have never seen my fridge look so organised before.
The Smart Fresh containers seal very well too, with their click shut latches, to keep everything fresh and crispy. I do have a fridge drawer for keeping fruit and vegetables fresh, but I really do prefer this container method.
There’s no more pushing a carrot to the side, past a soggy bag of Coriander, whilst in search for that half cut, but now wilted cucumber, deep inside the fridge drawer.
There is so much room in these Curver containers. Look at how many strawberries I’ve managed to pack in.
Cleaning is so much easier too. Just place the containers in the dishwasher and it’s all done. Meats and vegetables can be kept separately too. The tight click latches keep cross contamination at bay.
Who enjoys a midnight snack?
I’ve always seen on American TV, that sandwich making in the middle of the night is a routine ritual, for when one can’t sleep. Do you know what I mean?
I would often see them retrieve their sandwich making ingredients, all stored beautifully in air tight boxes.
I’m so happy I can do the same now. As you can tell, sad but true, it doesn’t take a lot to please me. Have you heard of the Home sort sisters on Instagram? They are amazing, and spend most of their time sorting and organising people’s home.
Anyway, I loved the way they label everything with beautiful writing. They were going to make me some labels but it was too difficult as they were so far away, so I enlisted the help of my fellow Brit and instagram friend, Adele from nutmeg studios to make me some.
It was just, me being me, wanting to experiment on making my fridge even prettier.
Oh and before you say, where is the meat in my fridge, I have a lower shelf for that. It’s just not very pretty to photograph. Hope you’ve enjoyed the post. These Curver Smart Fresh containers are truly amazing. I’m so happy with my fridge now, that I want to show it to everyone.
Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
