I have to treat lollies like hidden treasure in our household. I’ve got mini-pirates, who scavenge our land on the look out for anything with sugar and chocolate. This genius Kmart hack on how to hide a secret lolly stash is EXACTLY what I need!
Our local Aussie hero mum, who is clearly as crazy about lollies as I am, has shared her brilliant Kmart hack to keep greedy little hands and mouths away from her lolly storage.
This latest Kmart hack is so simple and yet so very effective. A mum named Linda has posted a pick of her clever trick in the Kmart Home Decor And Hacks Australia Facebook group. She uses Kmart’s Over the Door Basket Organiser, which is a popular storage solution, conventionally used in kitchens and bathrooms. However, Linda employs the organisers for a very different task – to keep her Allen’s lollies stash well hidden from her little lolly monsters.
“Kmart over the door storage. Kids open my bedroom door and can’t see my stash. Winning!,” the triumphant mum shared.
How It Works!
For only $25, you too can re-create this Kmart hack in your own home. Once you’ve got the organiser hanging over your bedroom door, your secret stash will only be visible to someone inside the room, once the door is closed. So when your kids come barging into your room, they’ll have absolutely no idea there’s a treasure trove of treats hiding out of sight.
Best Kmart Hack Ever!
Group members were instant fans of the hack, saying that they can’t wait to try this themselves.
“That’s A1 parenting right there. What a bloody awesome idea!” commented one.
“This is the best Kmart hack,” said another.
“Omg been looking for this for ages.”
“Hahaha pure brilliance!”
They’ll Sniff It Out!
Others weren’t entirely convinced their kids would be tricked.
“Nope mine would still sniff that out,” one said.
“My kids would find them with their eyes closed can’t keep anything from them!!”
“My kids would have this sniffed out and raided before I’d had a chance to even pack it in.”
“I don’t know who you are, I don’t know what you want. But those kids will look for them, they will find them and they will eat them!”
One mum said it wasn’t the kids she had to worry about.
“Okay but how do you hide it from partner / husband?” another asked.
