When it comes to kitchen clutter, there is no end to organizing solutions. One of the easiest to implement (and most effective)? A lazy Susan. And one of the most popular models on Amazon happens to also be very affordable — it's currently on sale for $8.
While we used to think of the lazy Susan as a kitschy, Mad Men-era tabletop companion, having one can truly transform a counter or a cabinet. A lazy Susan allows you to make full use of your storage space and have things ready with a twirl of a finger. And the Copco lazy Susan, in particular, is built to make it even easier to keep things stored and in order.
The surface of the lazy Susan is non-skid, meaning you don't have to worry about things falling as they spin. A rimmed edge also provides extra stability. While the 12-inch is the best deal currently, you can choose a 9-inch or 18-inch model if you have a smaller or larger space you'd like to whip into shape.
Here are some of our favorite ways to put this $8 pantry saver to good use.
- Corralling condiments: A fridge might not be a place you immediately think of for a lazy Susan, but it's a great way to keep your condiments accessible and from languishing just out of reach.
- Spinning spices: Forget spice racks — organize your spices on a lazy Susan instead. You'll be able to use more of the cabinet space without losing things in the very back.
- Cutting counter clutter: Keeping your most-used cooking oils and vinegars on the counter is convenient, but can create clutter. Stash them on a lazy Susan, though, and the bottles won't slowly take over your entire surface.
