Welcome to Day 29 of 31 Days of 15 Minute Organizing

I’m so sorry this is late today, really really late but it should be fairly easy. So, get your timer ready and get those Eating and Cooking Utensils organized. The first step is to get rid of too many duplicate utensils to save on space and get rid of clutter. Do you really need 6 spatulas unless you’re a restaurant?

If you keep a jar of cooking utensils by the stove go through that first. Only keep the utensils you use on a regular basis in there. How many utensils can you take out so it’s no longer overcrowded?

15 Minute Organizing Eating & Cooking Utensils - Organize and Decorate Everything

Use a drawer divider or 2 to keep your eating utensils sorted and organized. Use a couple of plastic baskets to keep other utensils sorted. These small plastic baskets are usually 3 for $1 at most stores and they’re available in different sizes to fit your space.

Again, I use as many of the baskets as I can in this space to keep things sorted and organized. If you haven’t used a tool or utensil in over a year it’s time to let it go. I like having extra space, it makes it so much easier to find what you need. I actually added another basket to this drawer, but I had to run to the store to get it. I chose all white so I can switch things around whenever I need too or when we move from this house. Using the same color of baskets makes it look even more organized.

We like to travel a lot as a family, especially long weekend trips to neighboring states. I’ve always been surprised about how much we need to pack for 3-4 days. You never know when the kids might need an extra change of clothes so I always make sure to pack at least one extra outfit. I am amazed how much clothing, shoes, and accessories can fit into one piece of Atlantic luggage but even more amazed with how light weight the pieces are. My kids can be in charge of pulling their own luggage around and I love how they can all have their own color.

Weekend trips with hubby or friends can be fun and a great way to relax but I always tend to overpack. Do I want heels or flats? A dress or nice slacks for dinner? And how much jewelry is too much? Luckily my Atlantic luggage has plenty of room for everything I need plus it fits in the overhead compartment easily.
