Nefertiti or Lazy Susan…Who Stacks Up?

Five thousand years ago the Egyptians built the Great Pyramids at Giza….and they’ve been standing ever since. Yet when I stack my medicine bottles the exact same way, they always come crashing down. Hmmm….maybe it’s time for a new technique!

Always on the prowl for a better way to organize, I stumbled across an idea on the internet.   A turn table….aka: a lazy susan.  I use one for my spices and I’ve seen others use them on their dining tables….why the heck didn’t I think to use them elsewhere?

So, I picked up a couple of inexpensive turn tables (there are some pretty pricy ones but I was more concerned about function, not aesthetics) and decided to use them for my vitamins and medicines, as well as in my refrigerator.  I love them!  No more crashing pyramids of medicine bottles or sifting through a bunch of condiments to get to that bottle of mustard stuck in the back of the fridge.  What do you think? Maybe you’ll give it a try too!  I may even get one for my toiletries and keep it under my bathroom sink. Ooooo…I’m excited!
