Organizing an entire kitchen is a lot to take on, especially when both you and your roommate have a lot of work and stuff going on. We decided we would take it a step at a time. In this case, I am taking on one drawer at a time.
I started with the flatware drawer. We have a lot of mismatched utensils. Some come from college, some were inherited from my old office that closed its doors a couple years back, and some come from a would-be roommate who decided not to return but left all his stuff here.
We would prefer to have one full, attractive, and ergonomically comfortable set of silverware. None of the current collection are that. For now this stuff will do, but we are definitely on the look-out for something that catches our eye. Stay tuned.
