Just the Tip

God bless you Pinterest.  I saw something late last night that I thought might just change my cookie making life.  And I was right!  Sweet Holy Moses - we've got organization folks, in the shape of a four tiered lazy Susan.  It's made of metal with black enamel finish, which can be easily spray painted to fit in with your decor. Black happens to work for my kitchen, but I can just see it in bright aqua or hot pink. There are two tiers with 6 dividers and two tiers with 3 dividers. Perfect for organizing tips, couplers, food coloring, disco dusts, food markers, et cetera, all in one handy dandy spot tucked under the kitchen cabinets.  Not too obtrusive or such an eyesore that it can't be left out in the open.  I'm in heaven!  

It does requires assembly and took me over an hour to put together with all of the nuts and bolts (four per divider!)  but it was really easy peasy.  I had to leave off the topper fob that screws in for it to slide under my overhead cabinets, but this does not effect its stability whatsoever.  This was found at Harbor Freight Hardware Store for $18.95 and I'm told they often have on line coupons so check for those before you go to pick up yours!  Game changer!

Picked up those glass canisters at Target for Powdered Sugar and Meringue Powder both under $7 a piece.  Love being able to keep out my necessities in attractive containers instead of living like a hobo with vile, dirty bins and make shift storage. Organizing always makes me feel so much better and ask myself, "How was I living before I did this?"

Must make labels for the tips section! 0s, 1s, 1.5s, etc.

  3. I bought a unit similiar to yours at Lowes/Home Depot. The bins are deeper and all I had to do was "thread" the bins onto the middle rod. That was the total installation! Mine is made out of heavy duty fabricated plastic. It was "designed" for storing nuts, bolts/parts so it is very sturdy. Each layer swivels. I use mine for art/craft supplies. It's a GREAT storage unit!!

  4. Nifty ideas! I would love to do that, too, but the kitchen in my *new* home is short of counter space...I really miss the long counter I had in my last house.
