Australians Are Just Realising That We All Organise Our Kitchen Drawers The Exact Same Way

Turns out that deep down, we really are all just the same.

There are many random, unique quirks that make up true Australian culture — such as avoiding red lights at an intersection by cutting through the servo, saying "legend" instead of "thank you" and going on and on about how good Mersey Valley cheese is.

That's just to name a few.

Recently, another common Aussie trait came to my attention while browsing TikTok. And it's the way we organise our kitchen drawers.

Turns out we all have the same highly specific and productive method of storing things?!


Let's break it down.

So, first we have the top drawer which consists of your regular cutlery — knives, forks and spoons.

The second drawer is always a messy pile of tongs and other cooking utensils.

In the third drawer, we've got glad wrap, foil, baking paper, sandwich bags and what not.

And in the bottom drawer: Tea towels, oven mitts and the like.

Now, there were some people in the comments who pointed out some small differences in their kitchens.

But, for the most part — I seriously have no idea how it happened that so many of us do this minor thing in the same way.

I kind of love it though.
