Use Drawer Separators

No matter how organized you think you may be, unless you’re using drawer separators, the items scatter freely, looking messy. A few trays will keep groupings, like utensils, together and easy to sift through.
When it comes to flatware, Wirick suggests evaluating your needs, editing, and tossing the duplicates. “You may want to have multiple spatulas and non-stick skillets, but if space is a challenge, push yourself to only have one of each,” she says.
Wirick admits it may create a slight inconvenience from time to time, but as she says, “It’s better than having overflowing drawers and cabinets.”
