Our youngest kids can't tackle a full dishwasher or the laundry just yet. But they are old enough to put away the silverware and manage their underwear and sock drawer. I placed a couple of drawer organizers in our large kitchen drawers and used a permanent marker to draw an outline of each utensil type inside each slot. Now the kids can follow the simple code and put away the silverware into the drawer organizers without any help from me. I think they've even made it into a game, to see who can finish first.
Getting rid of things and organizing is a great place to start kitchen organization, but the job does not end there. Once you have the minimum of items in the space and they are all organized, it is time to start cleaning. Start with the refrigerator and oven because cleaning solutions may need to sit for some time to penetrate the dirt and grime that has built up. If you have a self-cleaning oven, you will spend less time on this step, but not everyone enjoys this luxury. Clean up spills and stains that have built up and figure out methods for dealing with areas affected by common spills.
Tackle one drawer at a time. Organizing solutions need not take a long time. Set aside a specified amount of time. Limit a maximum of 30 minutes for a large drawer or one that hold lots of items. Smaller, less full drawers put 10-15 minutes time maximum on these sized drawers. This way you stay focused, don't waste time, and you get done quicker and leave more time for other things. When kitchen drawer organizing is done in small, manageable chinks of time, then I find I am more likely to do it more often so will you.
