Stacey Solomon pulls oven apart so she can use the shelves to organise her make-up in latest hack

Stacey Solomon has been providing her three million Instagram fans with storage hacks for some time – and her latest tip is strangely clever but only if you're willing to sacrifice a perfectly working oven.

The mum-of-three, 30, took to her Instagram to reveal how, in a bid to keep herself busy and take her mind of dealing with self-isolation because of the coronavirus, she was pulling apart her oven.

Unable to get out of the house to buy more storage boxes Stacey decided to free up the five that she originally had used to organise her make-up drawer, by replacing them with her oven shelves.

"Okay oven liners – bare with me," she wrote alongside a clip of her placing the clean metal racks in the empty drawers to make a start on her latest hack.

"Because we can't get out at the moment and storage pots aren't an essential item, I'm trying to find bits around the house I can use to re organise and get some pots back to recycle to organise something else, because organising really helps take my mind off everything."

Placing the metal shelves, which have inch apart slots, Stacey began slotting products in between the gaps: "For me this is like doing a puzzle trying to find the right sizes and places for everything."

Stacey was proud of the results, revealing them in her trademark 'tap to tidy' way, with all the products neatly aligned, and even explained that when she didn't think things would fit she squeezed them in to make the gaps bigger.

She added: "So I used two old oven racks (that I cleaned) and I think I prefer it and now I have 5 organisers to use else where.

"Sorry if this is actually rubbish, I don't know what's good and what's not at the moment but right now in my self isolation world I'm in love with it," Stacey gushed.

Joking that loads of people had been asking her where the shelves were from, Stacey shared a link to her 'oven', but it was a handy recipe site called 'Love In My Oven' instead.

"The saddest part of this is not that I find myself hilarious… It's that I went to the trouble of finding a website called my oven so I could actually put a link on here!"

She also explained how she would have to sacrifice making lots in the oven at one time: "There used to be three [shelves] in there and now there is only one, so we can only cook one thing in there maximum but my make-up looks great!"

Stacey also shared how she was feeling scared following Boris Johnson's announcement that people must stay at home unless they need to go out to get basic necessities, daily exercise, medical needs, or they're travelling to and from essential work amid the COVID-19 spread.

Stacey, 30, immediately took to her Instagram Stories to speak to her followers about the situation.

Wearing her hair up as she played with her necklace, she said: "I've just watched the Prime Minister's speech and I just wanted to say that if anyone else out there is absolutely s***ting themselves you are not on your own.

"It's such a scary time at the minute and I'm going to do everything I can to be as upbeat and positive as possible on here.

"And maybe even think of things we can do all do together to try and take our minds off of everything. I know that isn't going to make a difference or change anything but it's such scary times. I just feel like we should just do whatever we can."
