Organize Your Kitchen Drawers

676,381 Views
Just a few supplies will help get your kitchen drawers into shape.

Time: 10 Minutes Cost: $3-20 Difficulty: Easy


First - declutter. How many of the same utensil do you really need? Ask yourself - do I really need/use this???



Next get some baskets that will fit into your drawer and help with the littler items.



Sometimes it helps to take everything out and start from scratch.
The above and below before...



Organize your drawers the way you want, and what works for you.



Please join me Tuesday, January 17th at 7pm EST on Hometalk Facebook Live! You'll see this and more organizing and cleaning tips in the Kitchen.

    I like being able to find my things in my drawers- my problem is that hubby never puts things where they belong- now I need to label the drawers!

    IF you have tiny drawers or even if they're a good size, without containers you can put your utensils into the drawer handle first so the spoon-end is visible when you first open the drawer rather than fumbling through looking for the one you want. The smaller items can be placed in horizontally rather than vertically like the longer items. Easily done without containers. Spoons can nest inside one another laying on their side with spatulas and similar shaped items together.

    I have organizing fear of commitment issues and fear of high price tags for small baskets that don't work and you can't send back issues. I use cereal boxes cut up and tissue boxes to get a general idea and then I play with it. I live in a eclectic house nothing is plum line and square so any organizing thing like slide out drawers I would have to first replace my kitchen and since I don't have the funds to do this I have to work with what I have. I usually say to the family this is only an experiment and won't last forever but I have to tell you some of my Kleenex boxes have been in service for years. Labeling is a must but don't use masking tape it degrades.

      Your handy tip about repurposing cereal and tissue boxes sounds fantastic along with the labeling. I understand what you are saying about baskets fitting. I have a mini tape measure. I use it to measure my drawer dimensions, then take it to the store and measure what will and won't work. These baskets are great because they are 3 for $1 at Dollar tree for the skinny ones and usually 2 for a $1 for the rectangle one. :)
