Organized Cooking Utensils & Junk Drawer (Sunny Side Up)

It has been a productive week around here! I’m being ruthless when it comes to cleaning out spaces and it feels amazing. My storage attic was bursting at the seams and it feels so good to have room to breathe in that space again!

I’ve also been going through a few spots in my kitchen. Not horrible “befores” – these spaces have all been organized before (as you all know) but everything has been feeling overstuffed! I was having a hard time opening and closing this drawer and I’ve had these organizers since we moved in (about 10 years!). They are stained and crooked so I’m moving them under a cabinet. Time for a change!

I grabbed my new BFF and went to work!

15 minutes later I had this situation going on and I have to say.. I’m in love. :) Definitely an upgrade! This expandable kitchen drawer organizer is so nice! The sides pull out so it’s totally adjustable to fit any drawer size. It’s so nice and sturdy and I love the look. I keep opening and closing this drawer. Ha.

I only keep items we use all the time in this drawer and then I have a different drawer for items we use only use once in a while (the ice cream scoop, etc.) ┬áThis egg spatula is a favorite we use daily. It has a little ledge so you can rest it on the counter while you’re scrambling eggs without making a mess.

Also kind of obsessed with this meat chopper! Have you used it? My favorite companion when I’m getting hamburger cooked for our taco soup. :) I linked my favorite magnetic measuring spoons too!

So good.

I loved my new cooking utensil drawer so much I decided the junk drawer needed a facelift too! I moved these grey organizers into my office and got to work.

Could not love this drawer any more either! Aren’t the bamboo organizers just a work of art!?

{bamboo drawer organizer bin set}

This is the 5 piece set I used for my junk drawer and I ended up using two of them.

I love how the smaller bins can also fit inside the bigger bins. Of course things won’t stay this perfect longer than a day, but everything does have a place so it should be easy to keep relatively clean!

I love these organizers because you can adjust them so many different ways and they all fit together. It’s like putting together a fun puzzle when you’re figuring out the best way to use them. :)

I have 4 pairs of these gold scissors all over the house (in offices and my closet)! They are my favorite if you need a good pair. I had a little extra room in the top right corner so I set my marble coasters there.

Feeling so good about this situation and wondering what else I can give a facelift to with these organizers. No drawer is safe! :)

{set of 6 drawer organizers with gold trim}

This is another set I saw on-line that look so pretty. I love the gold trim! Thinking of using them in my office or for some drawers in the girls’ bedrooms.

There is nothing like an organized drawer is there!?

They make me so happy! You too? I had a feeling. :)

  1. Erin,
    I must say I got scared when I opened your post and saw the numerous, large black garbage bags :-O I moved forward and happily saw the drawer organization!
    Just MY speed in this depressing, cold weather. Ice storm over the snow…..Dark/dreary……
    Instant (or almost) gratification provided by the easy (easier) organization of drawers! Big impact in well under an hour! THEN under my new furry throw and onto a stored Hallmark movie where they prance around in the FLUFFY (NOT heavy and WET) snow, grasping hot beverages, looking cute in pom pom hats and little wool, pastel coats while waiting to grab a seat at a cute cafe, on the patio OUTSIDE! AHHH… Fantasy! Got to love it! A great buffer to REAL life!
    What is that song? Thought of it when addressing a drawer. Has “start at the very beginning” in it. From The Sound of Music.
    The VERY BEGINNING for many of us is drawers. Way easier than closets and WAY way easier than the WHOLE house!
    Sending “Marie” ;) down and across the street! FOR NOW…..

    1. Ha ha.. this made me laugh! Send Marie immediately! ;) I’m with you.. start slow and easy with drawers! I’m still working on my attic and it’s so overwhelming! I have too much Christmas decor and don’t want to part with much.. no surprise there. Hope you’re staying safe and warm with all of the snow you are getting! I’m thinking it’s time for all things Nancy Meyers. ;)
