Organizing kitchen drawers seems to always be a struggle when it comes to organizing the kitchen. Your kitchen may have a ton of drawer or just a few. And since no two kitchens are alike, it can be hard to find ideas or drawer organizers that will fit your needs.

So we rounded up some of our favorite ways to organize kitchen drawers as well as a tour of how we organize the kitchen drawers in my kitchen. 

These ideas to organize kitchen drawers will hopefully give you some inspiration to help you organize your kitchen drawers quickly and easily.

Organizing My Kitchen Drawers

Organizing my kitchen drawers has always been sort of a struggle. And it has taken me a while to find the perfect drawer organizers for my shallow kitchen drawers! 

But we finally found some organization systems that work really well for our kitchen. 

In our kitchen utensil drawer, we use bamboo drawer dividers to keep our utensils separated.

I like to break up my utensils into type, keeping spoons together, spatulas together, etc. This has made it so easy to quickly open the drawer and pull out what we need, instead of rummaging around the drawer, trying to find a certain spoon. 

It also makes it really easy to put utensils away! 

We also have a tiny drawer next to our large utensil drawer where we keep kitchen utensils that we rarely use. 

Organizing Utensils in Kitchen Drawers

To keep this drawer organized, we used Mainstays Rubber Organizers from Walmart in a few different sizes. 

While you can only purchase these in stores, Walmart usually has them in the kitchen organization isle. 

We love these organizers and use them multiple places around our home, 

Organizing Knives and Plastic Wraps

In another large drawer in our kitchen, we store knives and plastic wraps. This drawer is right next to our oven and is a perfect location to store knives in our knife drawer organizer. 

I love this knife drawer organizer! It has made it super easy to keep our knives stored safely and off of our countertop. 

However, because our knife handles are rounded, they don’t fit in the knife organizer perfectly. But I still highly recommend this knife organizer to keep your knives organized and off the countertops. 

In this drawer, we also use Mainstays Rubber Organizers for our Meat Thermometer and Slow Cooker Liners. They are the perfect size to keep small items contained and organized! 

Organizing the Junk Drawer

No matter who you are, you are bound to have a junk drawer. 

Our junk drawer is in the kitchen. And boy was it always a mess until I found this Junk Drawer Organizer! 

And I have to say, it has made a huge difference in keeping this drawer organized.

It does from time to time, start to overflow and needs to be reorganized. But just having a specific compartment that each item in our junk drawer fits into, makes it so much easier to keep our junk drawer organized longer.
