If you're a parent who believes in raising self-sufficient kids, then have I got a tip for you. It involves buying some simple drawer organizers and allowing your kid to put away clean silverware from the dishwasher as well as sort some of his or her own laundry.
Yes we're talking about that junk drawer. How many times have you gone to use a pen that doesn't work but it's still hanging out in there? Throw it away along with any dried up markers and sharpen the pencils so you can use them. Maybe there is a tool box or bag those tools belong to out in the garage? If you can't remember what those spare parts belong to throw those out as well! There may still be a need for various manuals and one way to store them is to keep them all in a large zip lock bag. You could even relocate all the contents of this drawer to a desk drawer if one is available.
Any kitchen organizing solution begins with uncluttering. Take everything out of the drawer. Sort items into one of 3 piles based on how regularly you use the item. Sorting by your/family usage is easier and helps weed out under utilized or infrequently used kitchen items. For each item place it in one of three piles; regularly used pile; less often used pile or, almost/never used pile. This way you are getting rid of kitchen declutter. The almost never used pile of items is the pile for charity or to throw out. The exception are those items, like a turkey baster for instance, used for annual events like holidays. Try and keep these items to a minimum or better yet store them away with the other same seasonal items. For instance, the nut cracker you pull out every December, keep it with your other items you store for this time of year. For the less often used pile look to dispose of duplicates, worn out, novelty items no longer used. Keep the regularly used items. A general rule of thumb is 25% of the stuff we currently have, we can live without. See if you are living by this rule.
