It Only Took a Year to Organize My Drawers

Those of you who know me really well know that I'm a bit of an organization freak - borderline OCD even.  Well, you may be surprised, but my kitchen drawers have been in a big ole mess for over a year!  I can't believe it took so long to finally whip them into shape.  Because I live in the middle of nowhere, and the closest Container Store or Bed, Bath and Beyond is about 2 hours away; ordering some online would be the easiest/cheapest way to go for me.  I decided on these bamboo organizers from Amazon.  I like how you can make different combinations of them to fit your drawer. They're so much nicer than those cheap one-size-fits-all silverware dividers that are usually too small for your drawers anyway.  And every single one of the drawers in my kitchen is a different size.  What's that about?  So I played around with them for a few days to figure out which configuration would be best for all my kitchen gadgets.  And I have a LOT of kitchen gadgets that needed organizing.

I also ordered this organizer for all my serving spoons and steak knives.  Everything fit in perfectly!

Don't they look so nice?  I love being organized.  And putting all this stuff in these organizers emptied out one whole drawer on the other side of the island!  Whoo-hoo!  Check off another item on the To Do List.  So now it's time to do the bathroom and laundry room drawers!
