Get organised for the new year
Out with the old and in with the new. Post-Christmas is the perfect opportunity to detox your home, and we have some great new products along with those trusty favourites to help declutter.
Vacuum storage bags are a nifty way of packing away sweaters and coats or synthetic-filled duvets and pillows, as they're incredibly space saving. Out of season items can be reduced to a quarter of their original size, as well as being protected against dust, moths, moisture and odours.
Take a look at our range of boxes and baskets, as there's something for every room. My favourite is the set of 3 wheat straw baskets in chocolate, great value for money and brilliant for storing away everything from magazines to bed linen. You can also make use of the space under the bed with our practical plastic wheeled boxes that glide out of sight, or we have a beautiful hyacinth box. Water hyacinth is a fast-growing, sustainable material. We even have something for the kids, make tidying up fun with our set of 3 boxes disguised as suitcases.
If you're planning on organising your wardrobe, consider our hanging shoe and storage tidies, which really allow you to maximise space. I also love these white satin padded hangers to help cherish best clothes, and garment covers.
Whether you're packing away your winter favourites or bringing out your summer clothes, remember to protect them from moths. Our anti-moth sweater bags are conveniently transparent and lavender-scented; if that's not your favourite scent, try our John Lewis natural wool guard products made with essential oils of geranium, vetiver, peppermint, lemongrass and neem, and designed to simply hang in your wardrobe and keep moths at bay. Natural cedarwood is also an excellent moth deterrent, and can be hung in your wardrobe or placed in your drawers, keeping your clothes not only protected but smelling divine.
Once you've tackled the house, perhaps take a look at your garage. Our new exclusive range of Evertidy storage solutions (online only) is coming soon, and will help to organise all your outdoor bits and bobs. My favourite is the garden organiser, to keep all garden tools neatly together hanging in one place.
