Do you have a junk drawer?

When we moved in one of the first things I did in the kitchen was designate a junk drawer lol. It's the drawer that contains stuff like scissors, batteries, super glue, scotch tape, pens, etc. Crap you sometimes just need and is nice to have handy.

  • Yes, and it has the things you listed plus the "Girly Hammer," a small enameled flowery hammer that unscrews to several different screw drivers. I'd be lost without it! It's so silly looking no one has lost or misplaced it for many years, it lives in that little drawer of useful crap. :)

  • Yup, but no batteries because they can start fires.

  • If batteries can start fires my business will go up in flames! I have HUNDREDS of batteries on me at all times!
    We have one junk drawer for hubby's crap- screwdrivers, flashlights, zip ties, etc, and then I have a 31 tote bag that I use as mine for stuff like whiteout, scotch tape, hair clips, catalogs I want to save, etc.

  • We have for the smaller toys that seem to accumulate in that part of the house...instead of walking it back to their rooms while we're cleaning or picking up. The other is misc chargers, and random stuff that doesn't really have a place but it'll be used eventually. I clean them out every so often.
