What's in your Drawer?

My day started out simple enough, find some tape and pack up a box. OK, I could manage that in no time, right? Ya sure until I went to find the tape, opened up the draw and found this....




Yes, that is my infamous junk drawer. Don't get me wrong it's not like I was surprised by the site of it, I must dig through it six times a day. After all if something is missing you would think this would be a great place to start looking right?!?

Well, after digging for 5 minutes, looking for tape I decided I couldn't go through this again and pulled out the contents and placed them on my kitchen counter.



Look at all the neat useless stuff I had been collecting! Lets see I found three heely's wheels to shoes my kids no longer own. Why do I have them, I don't know they could come in handy for something right? Two remotes, minus the backs and of course the remote guide. What use is a universal remote without the codes...OK that was worth saving. Let me keep digging....



A handful of silly bands that haven't been sucked up by the vacuum, causing it to make a horrible noise when I vacuum. Oh and I even found some hooks for the Christmas tree, we really need those! And I can't have hooks with out the ornament to hang on them. Yup can you spot the miniature Sandy Cheeks  ornament? She is a personal favorite of mine ;-)



Three screwdrivers, 28 pencils, 3 markers, one sharpener, some unknown tool, 1 pair of pliers, 2 camera lens, 4 assorted charges, a phone from 2001, 2 check books, a picture of me on Christmas from 1988, a birthday ribbon, and even a cross?!?! Yup, because that is where that should be. Let's see what else do we have here? A few electronic cigarette filter, for a E-cigarette I broke, a book, a card, batteries, a watch, a necklace, DS game, 2 SD cards and junk mail that never made it's way into the garbage less then a foot away!


Did I find anything good? Yup, my house key and my sons glasses which have been missing for.. OH, a good month. I even "looked" in there for them, they must have been hiding! I think I did a OK job of getting rid of most the clutter

I had to keep the chargers, since I was NOT untangling them. Oh and I even made out with a tip! 1 dollar and 12 cents to be exact, not bad.


Stay tuned maybe next week, I'll clean my junk cabinet, locate directly under my junk drawer. Yes, I have a junk cabinet, bet you can't wait to see what I find in there!


Do you have a junk drawer? Is it as bad as mine? Please say yes! Oh, and if your wondering, Nope the tape wasn't in there.

Silly girl, the tape is in the kids room. They decided to play cowboys and Indians and need some sticky rope. LOL I have a junk Rubbermaid tote. If it doesn't have a home it goes in there. I wonder what I would find if I clean it out. LOL I might just do that.

OH YES!!! It was worse than yours, so was my closet. Hubs and I cleaned them both out just over a year ago and we've been pretty good about keeping them that way since.
You did a great job on your drawer, don't worry about the chargers... I have a complete box of chargers, wires, adapters, etc. that I keep because "you never know." =)
