Only 3 kitchen drawers

I'm buying house with 3 kitchen drawers and need ideas for silverware. Caddy on countertop? Or what? I'm desperate.

      Thanks Janice. That was one of my thoughts but guess I needed someone else's opinion as to how it would look on top of the counter. Lol

    ..I was going to suggest mason Jars. :) , and I see it has been suggested. I use them , and lined the bottoms with the soft drawer and cupboard liner, cut to fit. This protects the glass, and placed them in a vintage metal basket tray on the counter. :) I have used other things also for my utensils, such as a divided metal basket and have set my utensils on the counter for many years, I dont like having them in a drawer. :)

      @Saydra1 ...you're welcome ! :) My philosophy on it was ..: " UTENSILS are often in a jar or crock for use by the stove, so why not silverware, to make it readily accessible ..??!!" I have done this since 2003. Glad it helps you feel better about it ! :)

    Here's what I did. I have an old 1925 house that has not been remodeled or updated. I have 2 tiny drawers and 1 medium drawer and a ton of silverware! I think these were actually short vases.

    Maybe to save on kitchen drawer or counter space use a picnic condiment caddy and place on table ready for use. Spring is a good time of year to find a variety of styles cheep(dollar store).

    I've seen ideas on Pinterest to attach things to the backsplash, or even hang from the bottom or sides of the cabinets. These are all good ideas for somebody working in a tight space. You may also consider a picnic basket for on top of your fridge. I have one on top of mine for overflow from the small pantry. Good luck!
