My favorite secret weapon
Updated: Aug 10
A few weeks ago I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when I saw a story my business coach had posted.
It was a picture of a recipe book he received as a gift, with his kitchen on the background.
First I was looking 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 KonMari® consultant 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.
You might have read my awesome KonMari® guide and therefore know that it’s a rookie mistake to buy organizing products first.
Well, there is a tiny exception to that, and that’s an object called the turntable.
A turntable is basically a plate that turns, and it’s mainly meant to be used in the kitchen (but not only). Let me google that for you.
What is so special about it?
Well, it allows you to access everything in a cabinet or on the counter without having to first move 10 things out of the way.
You want something in the back? You just spin the turntable.
It’s like the wheel of fortune, but better: with food on it, instead of numbers.
Positive side effect: The turntable is a prefect home, as defined in the KonMari® method.
You can use it to store 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 improve the organization in your kitchen, then try a turntable.
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 favourite one is the Lazy Susan products from iDesign. (I am not paid by iDesign to tell you this. I just love it)
PPPS: If you do not possess the awesome guide I’m talking about in this article, I promise you, you need it. Really. I mean it. Off you go!
