Around our home, we believe parents do their kids a disservice if they're not given the responsibility of contributing to the household through chores. Kids that never have to lift a dirty sock or clear their place after dinner grow up to be selfish and expect the world at large to tend to their every whim. That's indulgent and impractical. On the other hand, kids that are given responsibility at an early age for tasks well within their capabilities learn to appreciate the work which goes into running a home. Those kids are more likely to appreciate the effort put into making a meal. Clean clothes in the closet don't just appear; someone had to wash, dry, sort and hang them.
Try using drawer organizers to contain what you want in each drawer. These always work well for your silverware but they are great for holding those pens and pencils too. Sort through your spoons, spatulas, tongs etc. and ask yourself if your using them and how often? You may find that you have duplicate items but you only use a select few that are your favorites. Categorize and group together different utensils that you need but don't use every day. Take for example a garlic press, can opener, egg slicer, specialty knives for cheese and vegetables etc. Knowing that you keep these items together will make them easier to find when they are needed.
There are some great drawer organizers for your kitchen organizing solutions. I personally like the 2 tiered kind with the top used for cutlery and when its pushed back you have a second layer below for other things. For cooking utensils you can either put these in an upright holder on your counter by your stove to help declutter and expand your drawer space or, if you have the drawer space keep them in a drawer.
