10. Divide Your Drawers Into Sections
When you have a lot of items in a kitchen drawer, it quickly becomes crowded with all sorts of things. It’s very common for people to lose an item and go to the store to buy another one, only to find the first few months later buried underneath all of the other things in the drawer. This is why drawer dividers can be a huge lifesaver. For larger items, you can buy actual dividers that will split up a drawer into multiple sections. Many professional chefs say that you should never have your knives on the counter in a wood block. They recommend that you have a specific drawer set aside for your knives, because it would be a lot safer for small children if you can lock that drawer.
It’s likely that your everyday utensils are going to be separated from the kitchen tools that you use for cooking. When you’re getting ready to implement your kitchen organization, make sure to find a way to keep them apart. Many people purchase a plastic drawer divider for their forks knives and spoons. However, if you want to be more eco-friendly, we recommend purchasing a bamboo drawer divider. This is completely biodegradable, so if you ever get tired of it or need to replace it, it won’t take hundreds of years to break down the same way that a plastic one would.
