PROBLEM: I’m a visual person and I forget what I have unless I see it. If there is anything behind a door, it is gone from my consciousness.
SOLUTION: Owner Mary Cambruzzi of Found Gallery in Ann Arbor, has a great idea. She takes the doors off of some of her cupboards in order to make the contents visible. Does this solution seem like it might work for you?
HINT: Taking the doors off the cupboard above your refrigerator is especially helpful. This cupboard can be hard to access and by taking the doors off, it can become a place to display pretty pitchers or bowls.

PROBLEM: I can’t reach the items in the back of my top cupboards.
SOLUTION: Use a Lazy Susan for your top cupboards. Turn the Lazy Susan and easily access the items in the back of your cupboards.
HINT: Put light items on the Lazy Susans in the high cupboards. Travel mugs are shown in the picture.

This box grater and hand blender are placed inside a rarely used casserole dish. The casserole dish has a home and grater and blender have a reserved spot. Sometimes it is easier to hold a spot/home for something if the home is defined in some way.
