Maxed Out

            Are your cabinets maxed out? It is time to de-clutter and re-organize to be able to start this year out fresh. As you are cleaning out your kitchen, bathroom or living room cabinets, you might wonder if there are things you can do to maximize and utilize your space better. The answer is a resounding yes!

You know, the one cabinet you have to send your child into to get anything out of.  There are solutions! If this cabinet is in a peninsula, consider cutting a door in the backside for ease of access. This is often a great storage area for placemats, napkins and other table related items since the peninsula is often closest to your breakfast table.

For several options and sizes, check out This product is also called a blind corner susan. Installation is relatively simple as long as you follow the directions. You will be amazed at how much you can actually store in this space once it is accessible.
