Quickie Tip!

In your kitchen drawer(s) of gadgets and utensils -- the one(s) with spatulas, serving spoons and tongs -- make retrieval easier by facing items in the right direction. When you pull the drawer out, you may see only the first front half of the drawer's contents. [Normally these drawers are wide but short in height.] The rest of the items are slightly hidden unless you pull the drawer all the way out. Notice in the pic on the left how this is so?

Turn handled items so that the identifying end (the spoon, flat spatula part, whatever) is closest to the handle, facing you -- namely, the front of the drawer. That way, instead of seeing a row of handles, you'll see what you have quickly and can grab n' go.
