Use Dividers to Organise Kitchen Drawers

Dividers to organise kitchen drawers

If you’re looking for a way to organise kitchen drawers, invest in some dividers.

One area of our kitchen I’ve been meaning to organise is the utensil drawer.

It’s been a battle to find the ¼ cup to the tea strainer and there’s always the open prong of the tongs keeping the drawer shut.

Entertaining in our open plan kitchen has meant we have many tongs and salad servers to match every bowl and platter in the house.

It’s always a mess and takes a few minutes to find the utensil we’re looking for.

I finally bought these kitchen dividers from Kmart and you can see the world of difference they’ve made to my utensil drawer.

We have a canister near the stove top with our most used utensils. It sits next to the knife block. I also keep the BBQ utensils with the tray we serve our meat on.

The third drawer down holds all the cookie cutters. I find keeping these separate in their own containers makes it easier to find when needed.

Of course, I culled a few items from my drawer – mainly those Tupperware prizes of utensils that seemed like a grand prize at the time but have never ever been used.

Where to get expandable drawer dividers

You’re not limited to the kitchen with these dividers. They can also be used in a chest of drawers to keep small items organised.

The dividers are available from Temple and Webster, Kmart and The Organised Housewife.
