Ever since we moved here nearly 10 years ago, I've been trying to keep this utensil drawer organized.

Everything I tried just didn't fit nicely in this drawer...plastic dividers, boxes...the drawer is quite shallow and a little narrow.

So as I was daydreaming in the furo (bath) the other night, I came up with a way to organize my drawer...make my own dividers.

I used some cardboard and tape and folded it to fit the drawer and the space I needed for the different utensils.

Then I cut strips of non-skid cupboard liners and voila, clean and organized (I do have more silverware that isn't in the drawer at the moment, but I'm sure it will all fit).

Don't know why I hadn't thought of this earlier, now if I can only figure out how to organize my gadget drawer...if I think of a way, I'll be sure to share.

What a great idea!! I can never find a plastic divider that is just the right size for my drawer.

I think I am a penny pincher Jalna :p

Hope this works for you J-A.

I think we got those as gifts Rissa :)

Hopefully it will stay that way for awhile Deb in Hawaii :)

Take care everyone.
