Optimize your drawer space. Once you have created extra room by culling unnecessary duplicates (do you really need five whisks?) and tools you do not like or use, rethink the contents of your drawers, one by one. For instance, you might rather have a canister of frequently used tools on the counter and use your drawer space for spice jars or teas instead. Or you could install one of those magnetic knife racks and free up room for your everyday dishes where they will be easily reached.
