Oddly Shaped Kitchen Utensils
Keeping these awkward pieces in a drawer is more sanitary than storing them in crocks on the counter, says Portland, Oregon, organizer MaryJo Monroe (respacedpdx.com). But how to avoid that all-too-familiar drawer jam? She recommends a genius kit called Drawer Decor. It’s a trim-to-fit silicone mat that’s tacky to the touch, with small grips that cling to the mat to secure each tool. There’s no adhesive involved, so you can reconfigure whenever you want to fit new utensils. (Drawer Decor, $25 for a 14-by-20-inch mat and 15 grips; extra grips, from $3 for five: drawerdecor.com.)
