Kitchen drawers are one of my favorite spaces to organize. When they work well, every kitchen tool can be at your disposal. When they don't, you end up wasting tons of time searching. Here are a few of my favorite tools to keep my drawers tidy. You can find all the links for these great products by clicking over to my Amazon Influencer Page.
1. Get control of your ziplock bags
I use ziplock bags in lots of different sizes but I hate the boxes they come in. They're all different sizes and some don't even fit in my drawer. To fix the issue, I use a cutlery tray from IKEA to corral them and then add some rubber bands to keep the rolls of bags in place.
2. Drawer Dividers
Whenever possible, I try to fill the entire drawer with plastic dividers. They keep my tools sorted and make for a much faster clean-up. When the bins and dividers don't fit my drawer perfectly, I use sections of a swim noodle to hold them in place.
3. Use oil-based paint pens to give random tools a home
I hate searching for tools. My kids tend to put things in the most bizarre locations when they put away the dishes. To help solve the problem, I put a small colored dot on the tools in each drawer. Each drawer has it's own color so it's easy for my kids to know just where things go. If there are multiple baskets in one drawer, I use double and triple dots of the same color to mark which one goes in each basket.
