    Default Fluff- how is your Cutlery draw organised?

    We currently have an Au pair living with us, and she is awesome!
    My teeny teeny not life changing annoyance... She puts the spoons in the first section of the cutlery draw and it's driving me nuts!
    Total first world problem but it got me thinking. The "correct" order is forks, big spoons, knives and teaspoons in the front compartment. What is your order?

    Sorry you're wrong It's big spoons, forks, then knives! Teaspoons/peelers/kids cutlery in the front and the big one on the far right holds soup spoons & other assorted crap.

    Forks, knives, dessert/soup spoons. Teaspoons and baby spoons at the front and everything else just thrown in around the side of the tray.

    This ^^ except we don't have a big one on the far right so soup spoons go with big spoons and assorted crap goes down the front next to teaspoon/peelers (the front section is quite large).

    On a side note we have about 12 sets...so its rare if a section is ever empty enough to allow someone to "misorganise" them.

    Sharp knives, knives, forks, spoons and teaspoons at the bottom.

    Hubby sometimes it but I always change it back.

    Big spoons, forks, knives.

    The cutlery organiser thingy in my drawer has the teaspoons at the back (then again, maybe it's round the wrong way?!).

    I'm not particular about the layout, as long as everything is grouped together.

    After checking my drawer for this thread I realised it needs a clean! That's a job for today.

    Spoons don't go next to knives... Forks are always in the middle, otherwise I don't mind if it's left to right or right to left....

    I love my new drawer organiser from Kmart.
    I have big sharp knives, then steak knives, then regular knives, then forks ,then spoons, then big spoons and teaspoons in front. I have salad forks and corkscrews along the back. I love this drawer being tidy. I really feel like my life is together when that drawer is organised. Ha ha ha....
