Maybe you all ready know this

but it was news to me.
I just discovered this on Saturday...

This expands to fit my drawer!


 The standard kind of silver ware trays have never worked for me:
Our utensils would be spilling out of the one above.


So about 20 years ago, I got this idea from a friend and I've used it ever since:
Not the best, but workable for me.




But with this new expandable one, 
everything stays better in its place (because of the rubber backing)
and it looks so much better.

But you probably already have one yourself. ...Or do you?
I'm thinking it would make a nice wedding gift.
Only $19.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond


Now I just need to come to the realization that even if all my grandbabies 
were here at the same time, I would not need all of these.
But they are too cute to get rid of.

I have lots of baby spoons too, but you have me beat...I have about eight or so...I love them, and especially the little people who eat out of them
. Awesome silverware tray!

I love that tray. I will have to look for one. I wouldn't get rid of any of them either.

I have a similar collection! (I keep them in a bowl in one of my bottom cupboards.)

I didn't know they had one that expands. That looks like a great idea! I'll have to check it out.

I don't dare show this post to Hill or we will have a new round of drawer organizing I'm sure!! She loves everything to have a place and for that item to be in it's place!! Before her mission she reorganized my kitchen cupboards, and put masking tape labels on the edge of each shelf so I would put everything where she thought it should go!! lol But it is very nice looking!! :)

I've never seen this. My drawers looked like yours used to. Now I am going to have cool new silverware holders in my new drawers thanks to you! I really appreciate you sharing this 'golden' find!

that's funny all the toddler spoons and forks. I am like you, I don't want to get rid of them. I found the little spoon Stockton used as a tiny baby and I can't bring myself to get rid of it.....

I have not seen this before! Great idea. I'd be keeping all those little spoons too. You just never know! It was fun to read about Nurse Tracie and the experience you had with the twins being born.
