So, you've organized the "big" areas in your home: The primary bedroom closet, the laundry room shelves, even the entire garage. But what about those often-overlooked "little" areas that could still use some attention? For instance, if you're looking to give your kitchen an overhaul chock-full of clever opportunities for storage and organization, we encourage you to go drawer-by-drawer and tidy up everything — even the utensil drawer. You know, that place where you're always rooting around for your measuring cups and the "good" cutlery when company visits?
This is where utensil drawer organizers come in handy. But before you purchase one, you'll need to, well, do some organizing! Start by cleaning out the entire drawer. Maybe you don't need those shrimp forks or a third ice-cream scoop. Then measure your drawer so you buy something that fits flawlessly. You can either buy a cutlery organizer that already has compartments, or you can buy separate bins to fully customize it. Once you've landed on one that you like, divide all of your items into categories: for instance, baking essentials, everyday flatware, cutlery for entertaining, etc. And voilà! Your drawer will be organized before you know it.
