Do you hate cluttered kitchen counters?

I have an incredibly simple solution for that old, bulky knife block taking up valuable retail space! And the best part? It will take you less than a minute to do! A budget-friendly solution thats quick and easy? Now, thats a win-win-win!

*Note that the knife organizer I have (as pictured above) was purchased from Target (available in select stores only), however, I did find an identical one at Walmart that Im sharing as its available online or you may be able to pick one up the next time youre in the store.

Heres the highly-rated nearly identical organizer I found at Walmart:

I love to cook and enjoy my kitchen with clean and decluttered counter spaces. My old kitchen had so much clutter between the Keurig, bulky knife block (which I hated), the double toaster, my Alexa, and other random things that found their wayonto the counter.

While browsing through Target one day, I happened to see this unique-shaped bamboo thing in the kitchen aisle. And come to find out, it was myticket to a more organized kitchen!

measuring the width of the drawer

Like many things we buy at Walmart or Target, I neverplanned to go home with this amazing invention But then again Im not the best at avoiding themoney spending black hole, soooI had to guess on how many organizers would fit our new drawers. Lucky for me, I guessed right (which never happens, friends)!

Hip Tip: Before you go shopping, make sure to measure your drawers and count how many knife organizers youll need to accommodate the space.

adding knife organizers to the drawer, one at a time

Next, just place the knife block inside your drawer its really that simple! Theres no cutting, no assembly, nothing! You just take it out of the packaging and youre ready to add your knives!

I found that the bottom slots are perfect for placing medium to large knives and cheese knives since they tend to have a taller profile. The slots near the top are great for all your steak knives and paring knives.

Look at how beautiful and minimal the completed drawer looks! Weve had ours for over three years, and they still look brand new. Theyre scratch-free and just as beautiful as the day I bought them!

I even love that I can have my knives right next to my cooking range while Im making meals. Plus, I dont feel like I had to sacrifice on the functionalityor the ease of accessing a knife when I need it.
