Clean Up Your Junk Drawers With
Drawer Organizers

Drawer Organizers can help clean up those junk drawers!

Everyone has a junk drawer, but it doesn't have to stay that way. Does this situation sound familiar?

You can't find your favorite kitchen gadget? You know it's in there somewhere, but where?

How do you clean them up without spending a lot of time and money?

The good news is organizing your kitchen drawers is one of the easiest and least expensive kitchen fixes. A few minutes is all it takes, and it will save you time and your sanity in the long run. No more rummaging in the drawer to find your ice cream scoop!

No More Junk Drawers!

The solution to junk drawers? Get some drawer organizers!

Whether it's a flatware organizer, or just some empty boxes you have on hand, these items can really help contain the clutter!

It won't do any good to purchase kitchen drawer organizers or expandable drawer organizers if you don't use them.

The organizing process won't take long.  I promise!

Listed below are the steps to eliminate the junk in your drawers, my favorite items to contain those items in your kitchen drawers and a few tips on what to do with them.

Plastic Bins

My favorite way to deal with the infamous junk drawer is to use inexpensive plastic bins. Most dollar or thrift stores carry them. They usually come in sets of 2 or 3 for $1 to $2. Some places even carry several color choices.

I suggest purchasing both rectangles and squares. The mixing of the varying sizes helps fit the configuration of just about any drawer you need to organize.

Flatware Organizers

Whether made of wood, plastic, bamboo or chrome, these flatware organizers really do the job. You can separate your forks, knives, spoons and serving pieces and see what you need at a glance. You could use the junk drawer plastic bins, but a good flatware organizer really works best. That's what they were designed for!

Expandable Drawer Organizers

These can be made of plastic or wood, but plastic is more common. Expandable drawer organizers come with long pieces that fit lengthwise in the drawer. The short "cross" pieces link into slots and allows you flexibility to configure the drawer around what you'll be storing.

If you can't find expandable them in the kitchenware, check in the bed/bath section. They are often used for socks and undies.

In my experience, it's best to use expandable drawer organizers for larger kitchen tools such as can openers, cork screws, long wooden spoons, etc.

Steps to Organize Your
Kitchen Drawers

  • Empty the drawer of all its contents
  • Sort through the items and throw away any trash
  • Put any items you never use in a "donate" pile
  • Wipe down the drawer with a wet paper towel and dry it
  • Cut some shelf/drawer lining paper to size and line the drawer
  • Sort the items
  • Put small loose items in plastic bags (twist ties, etc.) -- label with a marker or label maker
  • Put like things together (tape with tape, glue with glue, tools with tools, etc.)
  • Place your organizers in the drawer (mix up the sizes until the drawer is filled)
  • Pick the correct bin for the items (long things go in long rectangle bins, etc.)
  • Place the items in the appropriate bin and you're done!

Note: Get rid of that donate pile quickly. If you don't have a yard, garage or tag sale coming up, donate them.

See, I told you it was quick and easy! Now go enjoy some ice cream!
