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.
The use of shelves in base cabinets is poor ergonomics: It makes it very difficult to find items as it is impossible to gain an overview of the entire cabinet contents. It is quite common for a kitchen user to have to bend and stretch when searching for something. Equally they frequently have to remove the contents at the front in order to get to the items at the back.
There is a huge difference between buying a product which looks good and the one which is user friendly. In case of drawer furniture the former needs to be kept in mind while choosing it for our personal or professional uses.
Drawers and pull-outs, on the other hand, provide a good overview and direct access. They offer a 'smarter solution for corner, sink and larder units allowing your organisation options to remain flexible. Lateral and cross dividers as well as containers made from dishwasher-proof stainless steel can be removed and rearranged to suitable individual storage requirements.
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.
