RedRyder, getting rid of the husband would help, too. But I'm pretty fond of him. He's actually more organized than I am, typically, but doesn't get my hard to explain reasoning for why I keep this utensil in that drawer. So I'll keep searching when I can't find my pastry brush. It really can't be in too many places.

When I moved into my flat a year ago and put my things in categories in the places best suited and they are still there. I only have what I use and always put back where it belongs so I do not understand this article. They are take. Out drawer by drawer periodically to clean and that’s it.

Drawers and pullouts keep things so beautifully organized and accessible.
