Just moved back into the kitchen after the remodel, and am going through the process of deciding what will go where. Am finding that this is the perfect opportunity to add a little organization to the madness. A few of the new cabinet drawers are quite large, which makes them kind of messy as the different objects jostle around in there. The worst drawer has all manner of utensils in it - spoons, spatulas, tongs, etc.
I looked around at some stores for drawer dividers to make compartments for sorting things, and was appalled at the high price for all the options. Aside from a standard silverware tray, there are not many good options out there.
I instead bought some craft lumber and plan to make my own drawer dividers. However, I am looking for advice from anyone who has done this before - what is a good plan for dividing? How many compartments should I make, and is there a useful way to sort this stuff?
Also, one of my main objectives is to avoid creating the typical kitchen junk drawer (before it's too late).
