Quick Hack: Your Trash, My Treasure

Platter Hack 4

On a related note, another thing I did not forsake was this ugly platter thing that LongJohn and I picked up at a local church rummage sale for all of fifty cents. IT SPINS.

Tada, all my stuff fits and I can just swivel the tray to grab whatever I need. BRILLIANT.
