Storing Pots And Lids: Time To Pot-Tay!

My dear pal, David Staskowski, shared this smart ‘use what you have’ pot rack idea. You remember David, don’t you? He was the clever ‘Ask David’ columnist from the late, great magazine, Metropolitan Home.

Plus, here’s a suggestion for storing your pot lids from my book, Downsizing Your Home With Style:

Hang your lids over the pot handles to keep them together and save space.

I would like to contact David Staskowski via email. Please can you forward my email to him. I think he is the person who used to be my pen pal when we were young.
Thank you Janet.

Hi Janet,

I’ve forwarded your information to David. I believe you may be right!

Best of luck!

Hi, I adored the “ask david” columns. Weren’t they published as a book collection? I’m searching for this, but can’t find it. Do you happen to know the title? Thanks!

Hi Cindy,
I loved David’s columns in Metropolitan Home, too, but I don’t know if a collection was published. I’ll check with him and get back to you!

Hi Cindy,

I checked with David and, surprisingly, his ‘Ask David’ column in Metropolitan Home was never published as a book. Like you, I was a big fan and wish someone would have run with the idea – his tips were always spot on. Perhaps he’ll consider self-publishing them in the future…
Thanks for starting a dialogue!
