Here are my favorite silverware drawer organizers that will help you to keep your kitchen drawers well organized and tidy.
Having plenty of kitchen drawers is a great asset in any kitchen but they are often stuffed full of all kinds of trash and unwanted items.
Recently when I was decluttering one of my kitchen drawers I even found old cellphone chargers. I can’t even remember owning the phone so they must have been there for years.
So my first tip is to go through any drawers you have and make sure there isn’t anything that is redundant taking up precious space.
I like to keep my drawers themed so in one are “tools” like a small hammer, screwdrivers, etc. Not too though much as tools really belong in a shed. Note that heavy tools might damage your drawers.
Another has flatware, neatly stacked in a plastic holder. I try to keep just 6 of everything but I have a few more knives and teaspoons than anything else.
Another is for batteries and miscellaneous small items.
The last one has plastic food bags food recycling bags and tech chargers.

What I like about this product is the way the compartment slide apart to perfectly fit the drawer you are using.

Top 10 Tips for Decluttering and Organizing Your Kitchen Drawers
#1 Get Rid Of Unwanted Items
I would recommend going through everything in your drawers and making sure you are only keeping things that you really need and want.

Try to store like items all together in the same drawer.
In this way, it is easy to remember where items are, and it just logical. I love to make the storage near to where it will be most used.
So, for example, in my kitchen, the flatware drawer is near where I plate food up.
