Stay Organized - Tip of the Day: We cleaned out the junk drawer, now let's move on to the utensils!

From Payne to Gain Organizing is presenting a daily tip in January - Get Organized Month. Follow full blog at www.frompaynetogainorganizing.com.

At some point, whether you use a pretty jar on the counter for utensils or store in a drawer, there are some gadgets/items that simply don't fit! The drawers become overwhelmed and stuffed. 

An easy trick is to grab two dollar-store containers as seen in the photo and take all the bulkier and less used items and store via cabinet/pantry space. If you have enough of certain items, then group them in your container, i.e. baking items (chocolate curler, pastry cutter for butter cut-in, lemon zest grater, funnels for jam making, etc.), cooking items (cheese graters, garlic press, corn cob butter gadget, meat tenderizer). 

Leaves your drawers or jar open for the spoons/spatulas you use most!
