Kitchen bench clutter is enough to drive anyone around the bend. There are keys, pens, pencils, wallets - not to mention the endless stream of bits and bobs that husbands empty from their pockets and kids leave behind.
Well one Queensland mum-of-seven has taken to the awesome Kmart Mums Australia Facebook group to reveal her simple hack to rid your kitchen bench of mess once and for all!
Tracey says she spent ages searching stores for a ready-made storage solution to tidy up her kitchen clutter when she ‘gave up’ and came up with this genius idea using two Kmart products that ANYONE can do.
‘One $15 shelf, 4 of the $2 small and narrow bamboo drawer tidies and I finally have a way to hide all the "stuff" my husband and kids need to leave on our kitchen bench,’ Tracey wrote.
‘I walked around the shops for an hour looking for something to hide all [my husband’s] bench stuff, gave up and made this.
‘Really happy with it and stoked I can hide all the bench bits and pieces.’
Tracey’s clever storage hack received a huge reception on the Facebook group, with many revealing that they’ve been desperate for a kitchen bench clutter solution.
‘Great idea, mine leaves so much more on my bench,’ wrote one. Added another: ‘If I wasn’t in my jarmies already I’d be down at Kmart right now buying these - this is EXCELLENT! Mwah Tracey, I love you!’
Revealed a third: ‘Omg I so need this. We have so much **** just laying around on our kitchen bench and I have nowhere to put it.’
