4 Steps to Organizing

1. Brew Some Coffee: This is a perfect task for Saturday morning, before the rest of the household is up.

2. Dump Everything Out: Spread the contents of the drawer on a countertop or table. Group together tools of similar function. Discard any junk. Scrub out the drawer, and let it air-dry.

3. Sort and Cull Tools: Set aside duplicates, keeping the rest. Cull stocking-stuffer gadgets you simply never use.

4. Consider an Organizer: A beauty like the Hafele Cutlery Tray (shown in the after shot, $135) comes in four widths.
