1. Empty one drawer at a time and give it a good clean.
2. Use a drawer liner . I usually get mine from The Dollar Store.
3. Insert utensil organizer or plastic trays.
Here is a great drawer organizer because it’s expandable and should fit most drawers.
4. Time to sort things out.
Make three piles: one to keep, one to toss and one to donate.
When deciding what to keep, ask yourself the following questions:
When was the last time I used this?
Do I have more than one?
Does it function/work well?
Do I like it?
5.Once you’ve decided what to keep, move on to the next drawer. You will probably find duplicate items as you organize the other drawers.
It’s time to place everything back and organize all like items together.
6.Place like items in the most logical place. For example, utensils closer to the stove, tea towels closer to the sink etc.
I usually try to keep my counter tops as empty as possible, except for the kitchen utensils I tend to use the most and so it’s important for me that the container is not only practical but also aesthetically pleasing. So I made these two adorable containers using Dollar Store vases and little wooden ‘buttons’ I found at Michaels.
I spray painted one black and one white because I wasn’t sure what color would look best. I ended up displaying both of them on the counter but I think I prefer the white one.
