How do you organize your child(ren)'s cups/dishes/utensils?

Just mixed in with yours or on their own?

We have two cabinets set for cups, one has all the glass, one has all plastic. The plastic: the top shelf is all Tom's cups, travel cups, etc. Bottom is all of the kid's cups.

The plates we have extra room on the top shelf of the plate cabinet that they go, right next to them are all of the plastic bowls.

Utensils are mixed in with ours, we have a 6 slot silverware organizer: butter knives, dinner forks, salad forks, teaspoons, tablespoons, kids stuff.

ugh we have not found a system for this that works! We keep all her cups/plates/bows in two big tupperware containers in a cupboard down by the floor. This means she can access them and loves to "organize" them and throw them everywhere. The silverware is mixed in with ours and the plastic sippy cup valves are in a container by the sink other wise she chews on them and loses them.

There plates are beside ours, in their own stack. Their cups are in their own cupboard, with their snacks, vitamins, etc...
Their bowls are in their own stack beside our bowls.
Their silverware is in the silverware drawer in their own slot.

I keep Echo's in a little basket by the sink, and have her bibs hanging on a small hook on the cupboard above it. I need to get her more plates and silverware though. I swear that stuff grows legs and walks away on its own.

Thank you MommaDucks for the AMAZING siggy!

the sippy cups are in a cabinet on one side, the plates are stacked on top of ours and the utensils have their own spot in the utensil drawer
