Either you can spend hours looking for misplaced items, or you can organize them in a little drawer. We have come across a billion different ways of losing stuff, particularly, baking items. A Sunday brunch preparation may land into a treasure hunt if your utensils are not properly organized. Organized stuff saves time and effort and has one hell of importance in your daily life. To avoid uninvited embarrassment and unwanted delays in baking, a simple yet useful idea can be realized – a baking drawer. Here’s how to create your own.
- Choose a drawer
First off, a drawer is a prerequisite and must be in place before everything else. The size of the drawer depends on the items you wish to place in it. A deeper one would do for jars and bottles while a smaller one can be fitted for your baking utensils. One beside the oven would be a brilliant idea as it saves the labor of walking all the way across the kitchen.
- Choose material to create dividers
Dividers are the items of utmost importance when it comes to organizing your drawers. While you may consider wooden panels, it would be a better idea to pick up old and useless boxes. The only condition is that they have to be relevant to the size of your drawer and the items they would be holding. Cardboard boxes are recommended for proper operations. Also, boxes of varying sizes must be preferred. Moreover, tables render the labor of carving and molding wooden panels, unnecessary.
- Placing dividers into the drawer
Once you have chosen the perfect dividers for your choice of the drawer, the next thing to mull over is their spatial orientation. The basic idea is to save space. Scrupulously place the boxes into position – starting with bigger ones near the handle of the drawer for an ideal drawer design. It must be ensured that these boxes fit immaculately without leaving out any space in the drawer. Any bulging edges must be properly cut to suit the size of the chosen drawer.
- Dividers for holding specific items
The size and dimensions of the dividers should be such as to keep the things they are meant for. For instance, longer boxes can hold your baking utensils; larger ones your cookie cutters, sprinkles and color gels; small plastic bags and pop sticks can occupy the spaces in-between the dividers. Further, you do not want your drawer items to bulge outward. To avoid any possibility of that happening, you can choose your boxes or size of paneled dividers in accordance with the details.
- What’s left
Your sugar tubs are general kitchen items that find asylum with your spices. Also, the spoons, knives, and plates find a place with the general storage. The drawer need not be burdened with extra items.
It becomes far easier to organize your baking items in a designated place and find them there whenever the requirement be. Get yourself one such drawer – create it. Let this be the kitchen project of the month!
