Works for Me Wednesday

Homemaking/housekeeping and organization do not come naturally to me. The genes that my mother was blessed with in that area skipped right over me. In an order to make up for some of the short comings in this gifting I have little tricks I have found and adopted to make things a little easier and orderly for myself and those that have to live with me.

That is where this tip that "works for me" comes from:

When I load the dishwasher I have each compartment of the silverware caddy assigned a specific piece of silverware. This layout coincides with how the silverware drawer is divided.

My caddy has 6 compartments. On the left side the 3 compartments are:
  1. Plastics, serving spoons and baby spoons/silverware
  2. Tablespoons and tall teaspoons
  3. Regular spoons

    On the right side the 3 compartments are:

  4. Forks
  5. Butter knives
  6. Steak knives
Doing it this way makes it so easy to unload the caddy. Especially for the children. I also remove the caddy from the dishwasher to empty it - I found it much easier and back friendly to set the caddy on the counter top and empty each compartment into the matching drawer divider.

This may not be an original idea - I know it isn't - I read and adopted it from somewhere, but I have used this for years and it is one of my "OCD" (obsessive compulsive) tendencies. Yes, even a pack rat can have OCD tendencies.

So even though the idea isn't originally mine - it "Works for Me" and therefore earns a place in this category :)

For more ideas be sure to see the list of other participants posted on the Rocks in my dryer blog.
