She’s best known for her cleaning tips - but Mrs Hinch is giving Marie Kondo a run for her money in the organisation stakes.

Sophie Hinchcliffe, 29, revealed this week that she keeps her fresh groceries tidy in the kitchen with the help of a mini crate purchased from eBay.

On her Instagram Story, she shared with her 2.9m followers pictures and videos showing how she keeps her fruit and vegetables in order.

“Who remembers me saying the other day I want to organise my veg well...straight onto eBay I went!” the Essex-based star wrote.

“Sorry don't even know why I laughed but we have so much veg in the house right now because of casseroles soups etc that I want to keep them organised!”

The mum-of-one revealed that the crate appeared to have been handmade, and that she was glad she had made the investment.

She added: “They may not ever see this story but to the person that made's perfect!

“I'm so pleased I bought it on eBay because it's exactly what I've been looking for!

“Also I am, over the moon with this eBayer! It wasn't my cheapest eBayer but I can tell someone has made this from scratch painted it! It was all labelled up bless them!”

Sophie - who shared a link to the product - added: “Yes I am 29. Yes I am excited over my veg crate but that's just me.”

The mum-of-one - who welcomed baby son Ronnie earlier this year - went on to explain how she also ordered re-usable net bags, in place of disposable plastic ones, from the bargain website to store loose produce.

She wrote: “I will take these shopping with me too and just put my veg straight into them! Saves on plastic bags too.”
