If you’re anything like me, a silverware drawer divider does not seem to help me keep my utensils any more organized than when I’d chucked them carelessly in the drawer. Somehow, no drawer divider is ever big enough; spoons slip into the knife spot; or the corn-on-the-cob holders start infiltrating every single slot. Rather than having to kind and re-organize things every time you empty the dishwasher, try one of those tricks to keep your silverware stay neat and tidy.

One idea we’ve noticed on is your choice to keep a little set of silverware on the counter in a vertical planner or adorable ceramic cups. If you’re like most people, you likely use the same few pieces daily. This keeps them right at hand, instead of muddled in your drawer, and motivates you to keep them organized.

The top tier can be used for your own silverware and utensils that you use regularly, whereas nicer and lesser-used bits can be saved below. This keeps your silverware neat, and conserves on drawer space too.
