So can you think of 11 Better Ways to Organize Your Pots and Pans? Good Housekeeping magazine can, of course! This is an old standard in magazines, and Good House keeping has been around for about 100 years. And in this day and age of magazine failures, Good Housekeeping has managed to maintain its print edition while many others have failed and gone out of business. That is probably because Good Housekeeping has so many interesting and useful lessons that pretty much every one of us has taken advantage of that it keeps this magazine on the forefront of every magazine rack right around the world. In this article, Good Housekeeping hits a home run again by teaching us 11 Better Ways to Organize Your Pots and Pans. And who does not need help here? How many times have you spent forever searching for that one pot that you really want to use for a certain purpose, or searched forever to find the lid that works and fits another pot, or simply opened the cupboard to a stack of mis-fitting pots and lids that you cannot make heads nor tails out of? Well, once again, Good Housekeeping has come to the rescue to give you lots of ideas and options on how to keep tabs on your pots and pans.

The options that Good Housekeeping suggests range from making wall hangers so that you can hang your pots and pans in place where they are visible but still tidy and neat, to more expensive options where you build specialized cupboards that hold the specific pot or pan right where you will see it and can easily pull it out when you pull open the pots and pans drawer. These latter options are wonderful, but costly. It is of course much more affordable to simply put up some kind of hanger that you can use to suspend your pots and pans, whether from the wall or even from the ceiling. If you choose to hang your pots and pans from the ceiling, be very careful about height issues. Some times, the pots and pans can be too high, and getting them down can prove difficult. Or, at other times, they can be hung too low, and you spend your time ducking so that you do not get hit in the head with a pot or pan.

One particularly good idea might be to replace your Lazy Susan, that corner cupboard that is never useful (it seems) with ways to hang the pots and pans. The corner is big enough for this purpose and you can likely put your entire collection of pots and pans in to the lazy Susan. Find more ideas at the web site.
