Since I posted Picks Aplenty, Picks Galore (Part One), I've had some interest recently from folks wondering how I organize my bento box drawer. So, I'm entitling this 'Part Two' of a small series.
I have a very large, deep kitchen drawer that I store all my bento boxes in. They are [usually] put together as soon as they are washed and dried, so that I don't have to go hunting for lid tops and mates. Does my drawer always look so organized? Heck no! In fact, when I snapped these pictures I was so irritated by the disarray that I tackled it with gusto to wrangle it back into some semblance of ordered-chaos.
I also have some updated pictures of my pick organizer. I rearrange it every few months, as I add to my enormous (and insane) collection. A bunch of these are very recent acquisitions, and I've yet to use them. I support my addiction by telling myself I need to replace all the picks that get chewed up, either by kid or by garbage disposal (whoops.)
In this last picture you'll notice some cardboard cutouts. These came with the packaging in some of my decorative food cutters, and they are basically diagrams on how to make several different shapes with the small pieces, so I keep them in there for reference in the bottom tier. I swear, this is one of my best organizational purchases. It's worth double what the going rate is!
So, describe what your drawers look like and are organized. Any tips?
