Sometimes I forget that people actually read this blog. Silly, I know, but it's true. And it's responsible for some of my more epic blog fails. Example: this summer I started a "Top Ten Things That Make Me Happy" series.
Well it would have been if I hadn't stopped at number four.
It's not that I didn't have six other items in mind to write about. I just seem to have developed a little case of blogger's ADD. I guess I got distracted and, well, kind of forgot about it.
So imagine my surprise when people started writing me to find out what happened. Seriously, I was shocked. But also really pleased. Thank you, loyal readers, for keeping me honest. I now present you with "thing" number five: the Lazy Susan.
Okay, it seems like kind of a weird thing to honor and celebrate, but anything that keeps me organized makes me happy. And when I find an organizational method that continues to work long after its initial implementation, I feel it is my duty to share it with others. The Lazy Susan fits that bill.
Finding an open jar of jam or other condiments in my refrigerator used to be a nightmare. The result was numerous duplicates which got expensive after awhile. Then I decided to add a Lazy Susan to the top shelf in my fridge and all of that changed. Now with a quick spin I can survey all of my jars. So, so handy.

I had a similar problem in the cabinet where I keep unopened bottles and jars. Some of them are really tall so those little plastic steps (of which I'm also a fan) wouldn't work. Add a Lazy Susan and, voila! problem solved!
So there you have it: "thing" number five. I promise I'll bring you numbers six through ten soon.
(And if I don't, feel free to give me a little nudge...)
