So what exactly is in Roost episode 12 sponsored by Samsung?

Well, we share our top tips for maximizing the storage in your fridge freezer.

We’ve all been there. You get back from the shops – perhaps enticed by too many special offers, or ahead of the festive season – and what looked like a lot in the back of your car, certainly looks like far too much when you try to get it in the fridge-freezer.

No matter how much repacking or removing of surplus packaging you do, the result is that you’re forced into some rather odd dinner combinations to prevent imminent food waste.

Sound familiar? Well, from choosing the right appliance in the first place, to getting smart with your storage, there are plenty of ways to make this a thing of the past.

We show you how to maximize storage to suit your family’s needs.

Next up, if you want to ensure your bed is as comfy as it can be, we run you through my tips on choosing the best bed sheets.

So you’ve got a good pillow, the best mattress (or at least the best mattress topper) but if your bed sheets are scratchy, it’s time to invest in some comfortable sheets. 

We spend about a third of our lives in bed and if you’re struggling to get those much-needed sleep right now, it’s worth investing in good quality bed linen. 

So we've got the lowdown on what to look for.

So, put your feet up and get ready to be inspired by Roost episode 12:

I'm Jenny McFarlane and I'm Senior Digital Editor working across five amazing interiors titles, including Livingetc, Homes and Gardens, Ideal Home, Gardeningetc and Real Homes. I also work on the brands' homes video show, on the Future Homes Network, which is packed full of ideas to help you make the most of your home and garden.


My love of interior design began way back when I was, at a tender age, glued to Changing Rooms on BBC. Fast forward 10 years and I was studying for a degree in textiles at university. After my degree, I lived and worked in the arts in Washington DC. On returning to the UK I kickstarted my career on women's and lifestyle titles such as InStyle, Red, Handbag.com, SUITCASE and LUXE City Guides. Fast forward 5 years on and I was heading up the content strategy and digital presence on interiors brands Good Homes, Grand Designs and ICON.


When it comes to my home's style, I relish finding unique pieces and collecting wall art. I love finding bits that remind me of home (Ireland), places I've visited and things that inspire me or make me feel happy, interspersing them with photos of my favourite humans and postcards from here, there and everywhere.


I'm not interested in my home being really trendy but I want to be surrounded by gorgeous things that remind me of points in time or a good memory or somewhere I want to go. It's more connection for me than looking of-the-moment. Saying that, I pick up a lot of amazing bits and bobs from wonderful high street stores, like Zara Home, Anthropologie, Arket, Habitat, H&M Home, Rockett St George, Trouva... the list goes on...


On a personal note, I'm still really into travelling the globe whenever I can and I have a baby daughter who keeps me on my toes on the daily.
