So I finally bought three small trays from Target to put in the drawer. It's still not exactly the picture of organization but at least now the stuff that we never use can stay buried and the good stuff can can rest on top and when we open the drawer everything stays put, instead of flying all over the pace. This makes my life feel better, more manageable and less chaotic. Maybe that is a lot of credit to give to a drawer but sometimes eliminating the small annoyances in life allows you to see the good stuff a little more clearly. Like where that damn pizza cutter is: front and
center off to the left.

We are constantly digging in here while food is boiling, popping and crackling on the stove; and every time we we risk getting poked stabbed or cut. It's no good, I tell you! Look at this madness:
