How to Use a Lazy Susan to Organize Everything in your House

Lazy Susans are old-school organizing must-haves that are here to stay. Not only do they offer compact-yet-accessible storage in the kitchen, but I feel confident that I speak for the masses when I say – there’s something so satisfying about sending lazy Suze on a super-speed swirl.

From the kitchen, to the living room and even the boudoir – here’s how to spin, swirl and twirl your way to a neat, orderly and accessible household.

It’s no secret that lazy Susans and kitchen cabinetry go together like peanut butter and jelly. Another way to up your kitchen organizing game? Try sticking your milk, juice or condiments on a LS in the fridge! With one simple swirl of the Susan you’ll have everything at your fingertips – without stretching to reach the back of the fridge.

Small bathrooms, simplified. Use a LS on the bathroom counter to store necessities like cotton balls, cotton swabs and hand soap. From there, go the extra mile and add a lazy Susan beneath the sink in the bathroom cabinets. Use this to store facial cleansers, haircare products and any extra shampoo and conditioner you have on hand.

Susan in the Closet

As mentioned above, swirling a lazy Susan is entertaining at all ages. Make the mornings more joyful by adding a LS to your closet for shoe storage. Pro tip: your children will love this. Add one to their closet and we wouldn’t be surprised if it cut down on the amount of times you must beg them to put their shoes on before heading out the door.

If there’s any space that needs to be organized, it’s the office. Add a tiered LS to your desktop, filled to the brim with your favorite pencils, must-have stationery and paper clips aplenty. Stressed out or coming up short on inspiration? Send Suze on a couple of whirls, take deep breaths and recollect.
