No, I haven't got a new fridge yet. No, the girls didn't break the fridge over Super Bowl Sunday. The old thing is still slumping along, but what I do want to share with you is a nifty little idea that makes getting into a
crappy less-than-desirable fridge a little more pleasant -- turntables!
While visiting a friend recently, I noticed she had turntables everywhere in her kitchen -- in the fridge, on the counter top holding salt, pepper, and oil, and in the kitchen cabinets holding condiments of every kind. My goodness, what a handy way to find the things you want! Instead of rummaging through everything to get at the items you need, just fling the turntable and you've seen it all. I bought four 12" turntables from Amazon here for about $7.50, and they are just so wonderful! I bought a 9" turntable for my spice cupboard at Target, but after I put it in, I found that I couldn't shut the door. Pooh! I'm sure I'll be able to find a good use for it in the house yet -- perhaps for the vitamins or for a bathroom shelf.
I plan to get a few more turntables and use them in the vet cupboard. We are always digging and hunting for the right medicines, and a turntable would make it so much easier to see everything. I love the Lazy Susan that my dad made me for the big kitchen counter top. It's so handy. Do you use turntables at your house? Do you have any fridge organization tips? Do tell. Oh, Clarice at Storybook Woods has a nice post about her new friggie here.
Snow fell last night and we woke up to a 4-5" blanket of white stuff. The sun is shining so brightly that it makes walking outside from the dark lambing shed blinding. I love the warmth it is radiating here today. We're climbing up to 40 degrees now. Joy!
