What is it about that lazy Susan cabinet that is so annoying? If you have bowls, pots and pans falling in the back of the cabinet, preventing it from opening fully, or if you can’t find what you need quickly you need to organize that lazy Susan. An organized lazy Susan ceases to be annoying. Let’s get on it!
How To Organize Lazy Susan
Why is Susan lazy? That’s a question maybe no one can answer–but as far as that corner cabinet goes, it’s only lazy if it’s not organized. If we can organize it once and for all, you might have to change its name!
Reevaluate your kitchen zones
The location of your cabinet (or cabinets, if you have more than one) should play a big part in how you organize it. For example, if it’s located near the oven and under where you keep your stand mixer, think about stocking it with things you use for baking.
It’s not just for dishes
Imagine the light bulb that went off the first time I realized that I could store food in my lazy Susan. Lazy Susans that are close to your baking zone is a great place to store sugar, flour, shortening and other baking needs. If one shelf is baking supplies and one is mixing bowls–you’ve got everything you need right there the next time you decide to bake cookies.
Corral the goods with round containers
Lazy Susans are generally round. So a lot of square dishes and containers tend to get in the way of smooth rotation if you aren’t careful. Try storing food goods and other items inside round baskets and other containers inside your cabinet.
