Monday's Mess: the lazy susan

This is one of the lazy-susans in my kitchen. Actually just part of it. It is a source of frustration to me!

I have two, but this is the messy one. The other one only has pots and pans and stays pretty neat. This one is always a mess. I usually clean it out once a year or so, but it always gets looking like this within a day or two. So I think I really just need to clean out all these odd containers, get rid of the ones I really don't use, and store the ones I do use somewhere else completely. I haven't got it all figured out, but hopefully I'll think of something good.

I can't wait to see what you do with your's. Mine looks just about the same and I dread needing a container because I can never find the one I want and they usually fall out as soon as I open the door.

Good luck to you. I have a cupboard like that with all my bowls and lids. It's a mess, now you've inspired me to make it work, somehow.

I really, really don't like the 'storage container' drawer in my kitchen. Like you, I clean it out 1x/year or so. Last time I did I got rid of 90% of the containers. I find that we use the same 3 or 4 all the time. It's helped cut down a lot of the clutter and frustration. Good luck!
