Easy Access to your Dishes Now!

I have been guilty in the past of stacking dishes one on top of the other out of necessity or to save space for other things. I am a single parent and extremely busy so I seek out ideas and gadgets to save myself time and aggravation.

Nothing is worse than removing the top layer of dishes to get to a dish on the bottom of the stack. I don’t know about you but I use my dishes on a daily basis. I get a strange satisfaction from emptying my dishwasher and putting away my clean dishes in nice neat stacks. Then comes the aggravation of needing that one dish on the bottom of that beautiful, neat stack I so carefuly assembled.

This pet-peave of mine has forced me to seek out new gizmos and gadgets to alleviate my dish-stack cabinet of pain.


Seville Classics 2-Tier Shelf Bronze



This two tier shelf is the answer to my problem. Each dish size has it’s own shelf for easy access.  Available at Amazom.







Bamboo Plate Rack


I am not opposed to sticking anything into a cabinet that will help organize it. This bamboo plate rack will line all dishes upright.








Zojila Cabana Cabinet Plate and Utensil Rack is great for those who are handy enough to install it. It includes a wine glass holder which adds to its functionality. It is considered a drying rack but it doubles as organized storage. However it’s not pretty so I would not put it in a cabinet with glass cut out.









If this fits in your cabinet or if you have room on your countertop this is a great way to show off your dishes. Get that old-fashioned country cabinet built-in look. It’s 0a hardwood plate rack and it also comes in white.
