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.
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.
The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home and it will probably be one of the busiest and often used. While the chef of the family may consider the kitchen their own personal domain, kitchens are also gathering spaces for family gatherings and evenings of entertaining. Whether you are working, eating or visiting, you will probably spend time in the kitchen in your own home or in the homes of others. This is why it is important for homeowners to keep their kitchens organized and clean. If you plan ahead and create a system, it will be easier and less time-consuming to do this. Start by storing edible items safely. The last thing you want is to waste items that spoil or to have to smell items that have gone bad. Food packaging and corrugated boxes help to keep things fresh. You can also put items into special storage containers that are intended to extend their shelf life.
