The only organizing product I would always recommend buying
But before I tell you about it, let me tell you a little story about my business coach.
A few weeks ago, I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when I saw a story he had posted.
It was a picture of a recipe book he received as a gift, with his kitchen in the background.
First I looked at the book. Interesting but, you know, nothing crazy about it.
But then the background caught my eyes…
His condiments were all over his kitchen counter.
Here I am a professional organizer and my business coach’s kitchen counter looked like savages were living there.
(OK I might be exaggerating a tiny bit, but I am Iranian, so exaggerating kind of run in my blood.)
There is nothing that screams chaos more than a bunch of stuff lying around somewhere, being sad and without a home.
Look at them.
Now look at me.
Although, it is a rookie mistake to buy organizing products first, there is a tiny exception to that.
And that’s an organizing product called the turntable (or Lazy Susan) .
A turntable is basically a plate that turns, and it’s mainly meant to be used in the kitchen (but not only).
What is so special about it?
Well, it allows you to organize your space, by allowing you to access everything in a cabinet or on the counter without having to first move 10 things out of the way.
Do you want something in the back? You just spin the turntable.
It’s like the wheel of fortune, but better: with food on it!
You can use it to store and organize everything from spices, seasoning packs and condiments to craft supplies and bath necessities.
So, if you are looking for a quick but genius tool to organize your kitchen, then try a turntable.
You can see some pretty good examples of how to use them here.
Until next time,
PS: In case you were worried, I bought and sent him 2 turntables. Now his kitchen looks spectacular. (And I can sleep again)
PPS: My favorite one is the Lazy Susan products from iDesign.
