Everyone knows when you’re organized your life runs much smoother. Well, how about start with the kitchen? I know from being a working mother, of 5 kids, that time and organization are key, especially, when it comes to preparing dinner. So, an organized kitchen for me and I’m sure a lot of you mothers out there is crucial. OVISonline.com offers a variety of very simple retrofit items that have definitely eased some of my kitchen woes. Have you seen one of the newer waste container designs from Rev-A-Shelf – the 4WCBM Rev-A-Motion Series Waste Container Unit? It’s amazing! I have the 4WCBM-18DM-2 designed for the standard 18 inch base cabinet but it is available in many different size options. I love it because you barely have to exert any effort to open and close the unit and when you are doing so a million times while cooking dinner, this gas-spring assisted unit is a lifesaver.
Another timesaver option that I have found to be helpful was the simple installation of a Lazy Susan. The 28 inch Kidney Lazy Susan – 6472-28-15-52 – in my corner base cabinet has helped me organize my canned goods so that I can find the things I need to cook with in a cinch!
I keep my pots and pans organized with our Chrome Cookware Organizer which comes in two sizes – the 5CW2-1222-CR and the 5CW2-2122-CR and of course, I had to have the larger unit! Now I’m not searching all over the place for my lids and pans that coordinate. This unit is designed with a double pull-out shelving system that stores the lids on the top and pans on the bottom. LOVE! Other easy, accessible organizers for the “Mom on the Go” that I use to make my kitchen tasks roll along are the simple but handy 18 inch Chrome Tray Dividers – 597-18CR-52, also available in a White Finish and 2 different sizes of 12 inch and 18 inch. I use those to organize my cookie sheets, baking stones, etc. I have also installed a couple of the U-Shape Tray Dividers – 596-10CR-52 in the cabinet above my refrigerator. I found this space to be useless until I saw these items. Now I put my cookbooks in them for quick easy access to all my favorite recipes. You can use them for many other storage items as well, as they are compact and sturdy. It really has a million possibilities for organizational uses be it in the kitchen or not. I have even had some of my customers tell me that they have installed them in their offices on shelves to store their books, etc. All of the items I have mentioned are simple to install – all you need is a screwdriver and a measuring tape. Yes, it’s that simple! As always, I recommend that you double check all your measurements before ordering to insure proper fit. Our new website offers specification sheets you can download for almost every item in our web store. What do you find makes your life flow easier in the kitchen? Perhaps you can give me some tips.
