The question is how to keep your cupboards organized and declutched without the need to expand or remodel your kitchen panty or buy and knew fridge? The best cheapest solution is the addition of a tabletop lazy susan inside your cupboard, panty or refrigerator. It creates an inexpensive non permanent organization surface. Bringing the back of the cabinet, pantry or refrigerator closer to the front without knocking everything over or having to pull the things in front out every time you need something in the back. This idea has been in use for sometime in lower cabinets but can cost a lot of money or will cause the need for an even more time consuming remodel. Now you can bring this old idea to your top cabinets.
To determine the proper tabletop lazy susan for you, measure the area you would like. You will want one inch or more around the outside of the cabinet to allow for free movement. Once you have measured in all the directions find the smallest number between distances on the two sides and subtract two inches (the space on the side to allow movement) this number will be the maximum size of tabletop lazy susan you’ll want to purchase. If in a refrigerator you will not want to purchase a wooden lazy susan for the constant moister will damage the wood. Glass or plastic would be more suitable for this area. While a wooden lazy susans would work great for the panty and cupboard. You will want to make sure you purchase one with smooth spinning ball bearings for ease of spinning. Also a padded base to protect the surface it sits on from scratches. There are also a double lazy susan that have two layers to maximize the space for smaller items. There are so many options the hardest part will be deciding what ones you want to purchase.
Once you have the tabletop lazy susan all you have to do is a quick install just clear out the space wash the dust away add your lazy susans and put items where you would like. One suggestion is to put taller items to the inside of the lazy susans and smaller items on the edge. Don’t put anything to close to the edge or you might have items fall if you spin it to fast. It is best if you spin it slowly. Then all you have to do is enjoy your new found origination. You may even want to show it off to your friends.
