Well, today is my official day back at normal life. The big boy is back at school and I’m back to the daily routine with the baby boy. How many days is it until Spring Break? Not that I’m counting or anything. Now that the holidays are over it’s time to get my home back in order too. January always seems like a great time to clean and organize. In Colorado it’s usually super cold and if I am trapped in doors I might as well be productive!
One of my favorite tricks to organizing the kitchen (I have many!) is to use lovely turntables. I’m going to show you three different ways I organize the kitchen with a Lazy Susan.
When I moved into my new home I was a little disappointed to discover I had no pantry. Ok….I was a lot disappointed. My last home had one and I LOVED it. So I was left with the challenge of storing my canned good items. I started looking at my two oddly shaped upper corner cabinets.
I tried storing dishes in there first but it was so awkward. It was also incredibly hard to reach items in the very back of the cabinet. But then this idea hit me! A big 18-inch Lazy Susan would be perfect for this space. I could reach all the items with easy and double my capacity by stacking.
In my other upper corner cabinet I used the same size turntable for our mugs. Mornings are more fun when you spin for your favorite coffee mug. 😉 Even with the giant Lazy Susans, I still have space on the sides in both upper cabinets to store items.
The next area I use a turntable is under the kitchen sink. One simple spin and I can easily organize and access all of my cleaning supplies. I’ve discovered a smaller, 9-inch Lazy Susan is the perfect size for this tight space.
Another great place for a small Lazy Susan is the refrigerator. Yep, you read that correctly. Have you ever thought to put one there? You should…and here’s why.
It’s a great place to store and organize condiments for two reasons. One they’re easier to find and two it saves more space on the refrigerator door. Plus you don’t lose those super small jars in the back of the fridge! 😉
Those are just some of the ways I use Lazy Susans to keep this home organized but the possibilities are endless really. Bathrooms? Linen closets? Garage?
