Spring is Here!

            Spring has officially arrived. Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping and the pollen is falling. This is one of my favorite times of the year. Thankfully, I don’t have allergies so I can enjoy the beauty without all of the side effects.


The arrival of spring, warmer weather and longer daylight hours always draws out of me the desire to get organized, clean out the clutter from winter and gain a new bounce in my home’s step. Maybe for you it is as simple as washing the windows and putting an airy, linen runner on your kitchen table. Or maybe you need to go a step further and really organize your refrigerator, pantry or cabinets.


One way I have found to really utilize my refrigerator and cabinets best is to install a turntable. You can pick up inexpensive, small, plastic turntables in various sizes at Target. They are great to put in your refrigerator for all of those small items that get lost on the shelf. Simply give it a whirl and you have what you need right in front of you. This small gadget is also helpful in your spice cabinet. Instead of digging through every spice to get to the one you need in the back, turn the turntable till you find the spice you are looking for. If you really want to get fancy, you can alphabetize your spices. This also works great in a bathroom or linen closet for all those medicines and vitamins. For a very small financial investment, you can enjoy a less stressed kitchen or bathroom.

Tackle your organization project now before summer and all of its activities get here. After all, you have got to get ready for grilling, pool parties, homemade ice cream, lemonade and fresh strawberries.
