Tell us why you started your Instagram page.
My daughter introduced me to Instagram. She liked my styling and storage and suggested other people would be interested in this and its grown from there.
Why do you love Kmart so much?
It’s on trend, affordable and accessible for all.
What are your top 3 current Kmart products and why?
Bedding – because the range has up to date colours, it's stylish and the price point is really good. It means you can update your bedroom often because of the affordability of the products.

The new Noir range – this range of black furniture is stylish and affordable and I have updated my own living room quite well with this new range. It can be used for many uses, you don’t have to use the Noir range for what the box says, you could use it for all types of storage.

What advice would you give to someone that wants to reorganise their kitchen pantry?
Take your time, be patient and make sure you measure and do a good clean out. When you are re-stocking your pantry make sure you are putting back what you will actually use. Also, think about how you use your pantry every day and put products that you use most often in easy to access spaces or use different storage containers.
What are your top tips and products for laundry organisation?
Using a mix of canisters & containers that can be stacked or used openly. The collapsible laundry hampers are great if you don’t have much space in your laundry and the scandi shelf is great for extra storage. Wooden hooks are also handy to hang items from, just place a wooden duck board over your trough area for extra bench space.

Any other advice for styling and organising your home?
Take inspiration from Instagram. Use containers that can be used in other areas of your home so you’re not limited if you have to re-use the container. Products can be used in many different ways, don’t always think that the item has to be used in the way it was meant to be. For example, the wooden duck board can be used over a trough space or in the bathroom.
