Tap to Tidy: Organising, Crafting & Creating Happiness in a Messy World
About this deal
I have a lot in common with Stacey so I felt a lot of this spoke to me on a personal level, especially when discussing her children and having her eldest while she was still young plus her mental health challenges. What made this such an inspiring read was that Stacey talks so freely and shares her views without pretending to be something she's not or promoting things just because she gets paid for it so when she reccomends something then you know she's doing it because she genuinely likes it. That is probably why she is one of the UKs most loved people because she's down to earth and real which are not common qualities in the age of a filter sadly. Such a light hearted read. Really enjoyed this. So many good ideas for organising and crafting and loved reading it. Only taken me a day to get through it but was nice to take it easy and follow the book easily. Stacey said the task has become a “bit of a game” for her sons who now separate their washing into the correct bins. There is nothing original about the ideas in the book as suspected everything can be easily googled. The gorgeous room features a plasma screen with Love Island about to start, as well as a shiny white floor, a plant which the star bought from IKEA during a recent trip with Mrs Hinch, and a fluffy rug on which sits a table a potted plant and diffuser.
Discover Stacey's Tap to Tidy DIY Method - with steps on how to get started. Each chapter takes readers round a room in Stacey's dream home, and how she transformed each room herself.As a full time working parent, it got me thinking about how many people missed this point and have barrated themselves for not feeling good enough, when they are going their best and literally had so little time to do these special things, based on this ideology. It’s basically the modern, grown-up equivalent of Mary Poppins singing A Spoon Full of Sugar so the Banks children don’t notice they’re being told to sort out their nursery. The room looks as though Stacey’s youngest son Rex has been playing in it, with toys scattered all over the place, while a throw lies across the floor and a ball pit takes centre stage in the middle of the room. I really hope you love this as much as I have adored making it," she wrote. "It's been my baby for the last year and im so proud of it [sic]."
One of the things I'll take away from this is Stacey's advice to not look at things in an overwhelming way. For example she says rather than saying "I'm going to clear this whole room" she says instead say "I'm going to clear this corner". Such a simple switch that will undoubtedly remove that overwhelming feeling when tidying. I also love the advice of taking everything out and laying it out on the floor to properly see what it is you have. We have so many drawers that are just filled with rubble and I guarantee some things in there have moved house with us 5 times and never been anywhere but the drawer! My weekend plans are to blitz those drawers and see what lies within..... I'm fully expecting a Nokia 3310 charger to be floating around and specific currency from countries who've had the euro for decades!!

Another tip from Stacey is to make sure all items which are usually hung in wardrobes are put on hangers straight away. Stacey recently revealed that she is channelling her love of tidying into a new book set for release in March. Saira Khan appears to reignite feud with Loose Women stars with cryptic quote on 'tolerating' people Speaking about the project, Stacey – who will still be a panellist on Loose Women – said: “There's always that one room or cupboard I can't face sorting out at home but once I've done it there's nothing more satisfying.It’s not only the usual ‘putting the toys away and shoving the old papers in the bin’ type of tidy (though watching her lounge change from toy-laden to adults only is pretty impressive), Stacey is the queen of organising. She regularly transforms everything from her fridge to her utility room into an oasis of calm.
