The 15 Rustic Ways to Organize Your Kitchen Silverware

Having an organized kitchen isn't always easy. Finding a spot for every single appliance and tool can be difficult because there's so much to squeeze in to one kitchen! Also, trying to find enough counter space for prepping meals is an ongoing struggle, especially if you're like me and you do not like clutter!
