Simple solution for making the job of unloading the dishwasher cutlery quicker and easier

When I come to unloading the dishwasher I don't like to have to take each item out one at a time to put it back in the drawer, I like to grab a bunch of the same item so that I can put them away quickly.

Do you find unloading your dishwasher cutlery basket really irritating when the cutlery is all mixed up?  I do!  When my husband loads the dishwasher he puts the cutlery just anywhere in the basket, but this drives me mad and I find myself rearranging it before the dishwasher is set to wash.  Not because I want to see it all nice and neat but because when I come to unload it I don't like to have to take each item out one at a time to put it back in the drawer, I like to grab a bunch of the same item. 

I find the simplest solution is to place all like with like.  So for example, all the teaspoons together, the desert spoons together, forks, knives etc.  Then when you are unloading it, it's so simple, quick and easy to do.  The downside of this is if your dishwasher basket doesn't have separate sections where you can put individual cutlery items, then make sure the spoons or forks are not stacked against each other otherwise they won't clean properly.
