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.
You may have guessed that the kitchen was to revolve around the stove and all the details that are needed to cook on the marvelous one we choose. After much research, we choose a gas Viking 36 inch, six burner stove with one oven. Black and chrome, it was a thing of beauty and held the place of honor in the kitchen. We had a custom range hood designed with a 'double lung' exhaust system, so the kitchen never over heated while the stove was being used. We had a pot of stock on one of the back burners most of the time.
Yes we're talking about that junk drawer. How many times have you gone to use a pen that doesn't work but it's still hanging out in there? Throw it away along with any dried up markers and sharpen the pencils so you can use them. Maybe there is a tool box or bag those tools belong to out in the garage? If you can't remember what those spare parts belong to throw those out as well! There may still be a need for various manuals and one way to store them is to keep them all in a large zip lock bag. You could even relocate all the contents of this drawer to a desk drawer if one is available.
Kitchen drawer pulls can have a powerful effect on the appearance of a working kitchen. You might not think of it because your cabinet drawers come with handles already. However, you can enhance the theme of the décor subtly by using kitchen hardware masterfully.
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.
