The Secret to an Organized Fridge Is Actually a Lazy Susan

We all have one: For some of us it might be a jar of years-old jam, for some a forgotten carton of ricotta or a box of moldy berries—that forgotten item at the back of your fridge that inevitably goes unnoticed until it's stinking up the entire appliance. Well, in the debut episode of House Beautiful's new video series, Incredible Kitchens, market director Carisha Swanson discovers the perfect solution to this problem, in the warm, California kitchen of Molly Britt.

Inside Britt's refrigerator—which is hidden behind the gorgeous oak paneling that swaths the entire kitchen—is an item usually relegated to Thanksgiving dinner tables of the 1980s: the lazy Susan. "It really helps," says Britt. "Because you know how stuff gets lost at the back and then you don't use it for like a year?"

Yes, in fact, we do know. To combat that all-too-familiar dilemma, Britt installed sleek, white lazy Susans on the middle two shelves of the fridge, where the family stores small items like jams and condiments—a.k.a. the things that always seem to get neglected in that far corner.

Britt sourced her lazy Susans from everyone's favorite organization outfit: The Container Store! The white, plastic rounds look good in any fridge and are easy to clean. Stainless-steel ball-bearings won't rust (even with any fridge spills!) and nonstick tops ensure items stay in place while spinning. Adding these to our carts ASAP!
