Kitchen Drawer Organizing Tips

To get your kitchen drawers whipped into tip top shape, follow these simple steps…

  1. Go through your drawers and get rid of everything that you don’t need or want. Donate or toss unneeded pieces.
  2. Wipe down each drawer and or vacuum it out getting rid of crumbs and dust.
  3. Decide what organizing essentials you need for your drawers. I like to have my drawer organizers coordinate. This gives the kitchen a cohesive feel organized feeling.
  4. Put back your kitchen pieces in an organized manner that makes sense for your family and kitchen.
  5. Open drawers repeatedly to admire your work! When you’re staring at your drawer, tidy any thing up that my be out of order. Staying on top of things will keep your drawers looking their best for a long time.
  6. Repeat this process every 3 months. It will take you less and less time the more often you do it!

When a cereal is running low, I refill the pourable container. These cereal containers keep the cereal fresh longer and are so much easier for the kids to pour. I can also see instantly what we are running low on.silverware drawer organizing ideasKitchen Drawer Organizing Tips

  1. Great tips! We are building and putting in glass cabinets inspired by yours! How do you use them? Do you put daily items, daily plates, bowls etc. or use for speciality items? Also, what kind of lighting do you use in the cabinets, puck lights, light tape etc?
