Some different types of kitchen drawer organizers include small containers for junk drawers or a flatware organizer for long, skinny tools. Another type of kitchen drawer organizer requires the homeowner to simply cut pieces of pine or plywood to organize similar items. Keeping a group of small, lidded containers in a single drawer can help organize items such as pens, thumbtacks, rubber bands or spices.
To make a kitchen drawer organizer, measure out the space and purchase enough wood to cut to fit. Cut the wood into pieces and place in the drawer to create compartments as needed. Play around with placement to accommodate large or odd-shaped items.
