which came first- neat or organized?

our fridge is filled to the brim with stuff- so much so that it's usually a shock and surprise what we find when we clean it out on Fridays. (incidentally, that's one of the weekly dishwasher's chores) i do make an effort to keep our refrigerator clean and organized, and i recently came across an idea that works for me.

on our recent visit to see my great aunts, i noticed something that my aunt mary had done to effectively accomplish this in her fridge. on the top shelf was a lazy susan, and it had the condiments, pickles etc... on it. i said to myself "self, that's a great idea, and one you will implement this week."

so, on my next run to walmart, i got myself 2 lazy susans, and put all those miscellaneous things that we have up on the top shelf on them: relish, beef and chicken bullion, mayo, syrup, mustard, salad dressing... they all fit quite nicely, and our top shelf is much neater, and i even have some room left over!

now i can happily twirl to my heart's content, with all my condiments at my fingertips! for more great hints click on over to shannon at rocks in my dryer to find a tip that will work for you!

Great idea! I love lazy susans, and the other day, I saw a stainless steel one! I think I'll be adding one (or more!) to my collection. You can use them for so many things. I also saw that my hairdresser had one for organizing all her hair products.

Great idea! I use them in the pantry and bathrooms but had never thought of the fridge!

Give your aunt a big thank you from me--and another one to yourself for sharing!
Blessings!
