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.
Ask yourself these simple questions. How often do I use this item? If regularly used doesn't come top of mind, then toss the item into the garbage or put aside to give to charity. Also, for multiples of the same thing, ask yourself how many do I use? Recently, I found I had multiple wooden spoons, four of them in fact; I really only use 2 of the 4 - why keep 4 when 2 are used? So I put them in a give away pile for charity, in my case Value Village.
There are now many clever solutions for the 'blind kitchen corner cabinet' available. Utilising this area for items that you don't need to access regularly is often the best solution. However, if you don't have the luxury of space then products such as a Lazy Susan (and the pull-out Lazy Susan) can greatly increase the accessible space. A wide range of other solutions are also now available such as sliding, swinging or expanding systems.
