You could lose yourself for a few hours watching “how to organize your home” videos. They can be quite hypnotic and calming, especially those where someone like Marie Kondo shows you how to fold a shirt or a fitted sheet. There’s nothing quite like having a calm, organized house. Naturally, our focus is on the kitchen, especially cabinet drawer organization ideas.
Speaking of Marie Kondo, her KonMari Method is built around the minimalist idea that if an object doesn’t “spark joy” within you, then you should release it into the world. If it’s broken, either fix it or trash it. If it’s fine but you just no longer love it, then you should sell it or donate it.
Overall, the method makes sense. But if you have a ton of utensils and stuff, you could spend days just holding items one-by-one and asking yourself if a spatula, wooden spoon or that coffee mug you got on a trip to Hoboken in the ‘90s makes you joyful enough to hang onto it.
So, once you’ve pared down and decluttered your kitchen cabinet drawers — keeping only the joyful items — how do you organize them? To help you get that well-organized kitchen feeling, we’ve gathered together a few ideas.
