Is Alejandra Costello one of the most organised people in the world?
The 31-year-old American was once named as one of the five most organised people in the United States by House and Garden TV.
While we’re not entirely sure how HGTV managed to get a handle on the organisational habits of every single person in America, it’s pretty easy to see why Costello would be high up on that list, and possibly a world wide one too, if such a thing exists.
You can see a tour of Alejandra’s super organised home here:
Her website and YouTube channel feature dozens of videos, all with thousands of views, that share tips and tricks for cleaning, sorting and tidying your house. Every nook and cranny of it. Even the bits you didn’t know needed organising.
Like your craft station.
For most people, the idea of even having a designated area for your crafting endeavors is more organised than we would ever dream of. But it truly is a thing of beauty.
Unsurprisingly, one of Alejandra's most popular videos is 'organsing a pantry on a budget'. There are over 295,000 people in the world who need help with this. At least.
Here are just a few of Alejandra's top tips:
1. Keep the top shelf of your cupboard/pantry for your large items.
Alejandra says things you buy in bulk like paper towels and cereal (bulk cereal?) should be kept out of the way.
2. Keep bottles and liquids in pans.
So clever, rather than forking out for lazy susans, pop one baking pan inside another. You can spin them around to find what you're after and you avoid messy spills.
3. Keep your dry ingredients in labeled tubs.
