Recently we talked about what makes a kitchen great, is how you organize it.  I shared some Smart Organized Kitchen Cabinets, my cupboard confessions, and you had a chance to win a $500 Visa Gift card.

Today I’m talking about Kitchen Drawer Organization and announcing the $500 giveaway winner!!

When we moved to this house 2.5 years ago, I came from a very small kitchen of 16 years with very little cabinet space. While this kitchen isn’t huge by any means, I was in heaven with my new found kitchen cabinet and drawer space.  I never intended for my kitchen drawer organization to become complete chaos.

The drawer with my kitchen tools has been a thorn in my side.  It wound up with some tools I rarely use, and the small drawer they started out in was quickly becoming dysfunctional…… you had to dig thru the drawer to find what you wanted.

How I Organized My Kitchen Drawer

The first thing I did was remove everything from the drawer and sort through my kitchen tools.  I threw out what was broken, and made a donation pile for the tools I never use.  I also decided that the larger drawer with my kitchen towels and potholders, could be downsized to a smaller drawer.  Since these two drawers are next to each other, it was an easy swap out!  The towels were sorted as well.

Next, I gave the drawers a good cleaning.

Then I added the MasterBrand Cutlery Divider to the larger drawer.

These two kitchen drawers are now reclaimed!! Look at the kitchen drawer organization I have now!!  Everything has a place! A few items, like my kitchen scale, found a new home and everything else, fit perfectly…… it’s so easy to find what I need.It’s amazing what a cutlery divider can do to create a more functional space.  Next up, I’ll be working on a few other drawers and cabinets.
