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.
If you stack your Tupperware in a cabinet and keep the lids in a drawer make sure everything has a mate and throw out the miss matched items. This can also be another drawer that becomes overly cluttered so go through it often. You might keep your dishtowels in the kitchen but if you need the extra drawer they can be stored with your linens.
Sometimes it is just easier to grab an item off the counter and place it in a drawer, but by finding an organizing solution that helps declutter, it will help keep the clutter under control. It's always a good feeling of knowing exactly where items are and a bonus when you or other family members can find them easily. This method described below keeps in mind the 3Es of organizing I always focus on, which are make it EASY, EFFICIENT and EFFECTIVE.
