Last week I was talking to a friend who wants my help organizing her kitchen. She said that she wants a ‘home’ for each and every item in her kitchen, but she does not want kitchen drawer organizers that slide around. She explained that organizers that slip and slide when opening and closing drawers are her #1 pet peeve. What? It is my #1 pet peeve too!
In fact, I recently had that exact same problem with my top kitchen drawer organizer. Since I live in a small studio apartment, the kitchen drawers are short and narrow. A standard silverware organizer fits, but there is not enough room to the side, or to the back, to wedge a single organizer to stop the slippage.
Thank goodness I happen to have a few tins of Mr. Mole’s Sticky Wax left over from my wedding 10 years ago…. I simply placed an asprine-sized ball of the sticky wax on each of the 4 corners, then placed the organizer in the drawer and pushed down until it stuck. There might be a better tool, but the sticky wax was free, handy, and will not damage the apartment’s drawers.
What is your favorite kitchen drawer organization trick?
