Getting My Kitchen Organize On

If you thought organizing the medicine cabinet was fun, and who didn't, then this is going to blow your mind. Today I give you two words: cutlery drawer.

Did someone order a hot mess?

I've hated this over ten-year-old cutlery organizer for awhile, but I didn't find anything that seemed any better. Until my magical shopping trip a few weeks ago where I spotted something different that I thought my help.

Not only does it just look a lot prettier, it also functions better. No more pushing the blue cutlery drawer back into place everytime I open the drawer. Ahhh... it makes my little OCD heart proud. Although I initially balked at the $17 price tag of this item, I think it's worth it. Especially if it lasts 10 years!

The blue beast didn't die though, it got repurposed to help me organize an even bigger mess.

I give you: the utensil drawer

We actually still use this all this stuff, so I stored some seldom used items, like the cookie cutters, in a different place and reorganized what was left. It's not perfect, but it's a vast improvement, no?


  1. I'm planning an organising spree on my kitchen at the weekend (yeah, Summer fun!). I've just been looking at it - cramped, full of stuff - and wondering where to start, but your post has given me fresh heart!

  2. LOVE IT! I hate when the organizers move about too. Both of ours do that, and it drives me a little nutty. Glad you found a solution :)

  3. I like the idea of putting seldom used items together somewhere else. You need them,but you don't need to work around them every day.

  4. very nice! I need to take a page out of your book and do this. Our kitchen drawers are so much smaller than they were in out last place so they're overstuffed now.
