With everyone home and the kitchen being a whirlwind of activity day in, day out, I’ve developed a new fear. No it’s not that I’ll run out of flour or rice. It’s more self-indulgent than that. It’s that my pantry chocolate stash is going to be discovered ANY DAY.

Yes, that’s right. The treats that I buy JUST FOR ME. The treats that I buy NOT to share. Judge if you will, I can take it. But for those of us who need NEW secure treat hiding places, I’VE GOT YOUR BACK!

If you have stuff to stash, now isn’t the time to start that iso decluttering. Without further ado, grab your loot and let’s set off around the house hiding the bejeebus out of them.


8 hiding places for clever mums to stash their chocolate treats

1. The vegetable crisper

Like your chocolate cold? An oldie but a goody – the vegetable crisper is a sure fire winner. Hide it under a cabbage or something equally as unappealing to anyone looking for a quick snack and your treat stash can go undetected for weeks!

2. Vegetable bag in the freezer

An excellent hiding spot, though the downside is your delicious treats will be frozen solid. What are the chances of anyone sticking their hand in the corn cob bag? #zerochancesofbeingbusted

5. In the pantry (disclaimer: risky)

This is probably the riskiest of treat hiding places, given that currently, the pantry is a VERY high traffic area. There’s merit in sneakiness. A box of cereal no one likes so never gets reached for – PERFECT. No one at home drinks tea, it’s purely for visitors? EXCELLENT.

6. In the bookshelf

This can go two ways – you can hide stuff BEHIND the books or if there’s no room for that, IN with the books. The benefits to reading guys are HUGE.

7. Tea towel drawer

Unless you have people rushing to help with the dishes, you’re GOOD TO GO with the tea towel drawer. Just to be on the safe side, do go at least a few tea towels deep. You never know your luck!

8. Back of the underwear drawer
