Use It or Lose It ~ Organizing Style: Cutting Boards

We are down in New Orleans at the National Association of Professional Organizers 25th Annual Conference.  I am presenting on Friday.  The topic “All Things Google: Tools to Organize Your Clients and Organizing Business with my co-presenter, Josh Zerkel.  I am a Google lover and will soon be starting a regular post on “Using Google to be More Productive” so stay tuned.

On my flight to New Orleans, I read the infamous “SkyMall” magazine.  It is always chockful of organizing items.  Some practical… others impractical.  I came across the Joseph Joseph Chopping Boards.  They are today’s “Use it or Lose It?”

Joseph Joseph Index Advance Chopping Board Set

We have seen many cutting boards that are color coded to avoid cross contamination.  We also know that many times in kitchens cutting boards don’t have a real “home”.  This set comes in two colors – silver or dark gray and two sizes – small and large.  They stack within their case so they are vertical taking up less space in your cabinets or countertop.













Joseph Joseph Index Advance Chopping Board Set – $67.95 (large)

  • Chopping board categorization system with four colored boards
  • Color coding system: red for raw meat, blue for seafood, green for veggies and white for cooked foods
  • Illustrated tabs provide at-a-glance reminder; contemporary ABS storage case with a non-slip base
  • Boards are made from polypropylene; convenient, non-slip feet on both sides of each board
  • Dishwasher safe

The chopping boards get “filed” when they are not in use.

What do you think?  Would you use it or should we lose it?  Leave a comment below.

  1. Well, after much deliberation I’ve concluded that I’m more of a PILER than a FILER when it comes to cutting boards. I love the design of this cutting board storage system and it looks lovely in the photo, but I can’t stand having yet one more thing on my kitchen counter. We stash the cutting boards in a shallow drawer right under the counter next to the sink. It’s probably messy looking if you live inside that drawer, but since I DON’T live inside that drawer…it’s the easiest way to clear the counter. SO while I am a huge fan of Joseph Joseph design, I don’t think I’d really ever re-file the cutting boards once I’d pulled them out. On the other hand, maybe getting this set would make me look SO ORGANIZED that it would compel me to comply 🙂

    This has nothing to do with this post, but . . . I watched your video on organizing your office drawer. What would I search for to find the tray that sits on the top edge of the drawer and can slide forward or backwards so you can access what is in the drawer I have some deep drawers in several places in my home and would LOVE to get some of those. Thanks!

      Hi Anne-

      It is called the Drawer Doubler. It is great for desk and vanity drawers. Also, the … junk drawer. Glad you found inspiration in the videos.
