Fridge space -- turntables...

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!


  1. now THAT is a good idea~!!~ i'll have to look into doing the same.

    doesn't sound like that new snow is going to be around too long.
    we're getting spits and spats today but the forecast is for a couple of inches. we've had so little this year that even that small amount would seem like a lot.


  2. Yes! I love my turntables. I use one in the fridge but I think I might want to add another one or two or three :0)
    I also use one for my spices.

  3. Oh my gosh, how fun we both posted about fridges on the same day. What a fab idea. I am going to have to try it. Thank you xox Clarice

  4. That is a wonderful idea, Jody!! I am going to look into it, too, as space is very valuable around here:). We had snow on the ground this morning and I think we hit 43 today. Oh, I am ready for Spring!!

    Have a great day!


  5. Great idea! I'm doing this!!! Thank you!

    19 inches of snow in the past 2 days and still snowing!


  6. What a great idea! I hate my fridge, but maybe turntables will make my heart go pitter-patter.


  7. Great idea! That would work on my top shelf really well. I don't like my fridge either and now that we have moved it doesn't match my white appliances.

    I only have a wooden turn table by my stove with all my oils and salt and pepper on it.

  8. Sheer genius! Sometimes I just want to smack myself in the head and say 'why can't I think of this.'

  9. Wow -- what an awesome idea. I never think to do stuff like that -- thanks for the inspiration!

  10. I use them in my bathroom cupboard and kitchen. of course.
    Good idea to use them in the frig!!!

  11. What a great idea! I have them in my spice cabinet but never thought of using them in the fridge (dur!). I'm hopping over to Amazon to snatch up a couple. Thanks J!


  12. I never thought about turntables in the fridge.... It's going to happen soon! Wonderful idea.

  13. I was thinking of getting turntables for my mugs. They're in a deep corner cupboard, and I have so many that in the end they don't rotate as much as I would like them to. You've confirmed that they would be very useful. Thank you for sharing!
