Do you have a junk drawer? Where is it and what's in it?

Mine is in the kitchen--it holds pens, pencils, coupons, old taco sauce, soy sauce packets, little toys, tape, string, and the pads you put under chairs, and---stickers. This is just what comes to the top of my head. It is messy and useless, but we can't give it up!

  • Ugh! We have an official junk drawer with pens/pencils, scissors, small hardware and tools, coupons, post-its, anything we find on the floor/counter that we can't identify (and are therefore relectant to throw away), my Christmas tree tags from the last 5 years (because those were my first 5 Christmas trees (officially mine to do what I please with). Unfortunately, we also have an oven mitt/junk drawer containing playing cards, twist ties, ketchup/hotsauce, bent cookie cutters, "extra" pieces from furniture we put togethr ourselves. My pet peeve: bottle caps and wine corks in every drawer in my kitchen. REALLY?!?! Everything is a junk drawer/closet to David.

  • I was going to say - Don't we all have a junk drawer, but mistynights doesn't & she misses it. Ours is in the kitchen and usually when we can't find something, it's there! Growing up we had one in the kitchen also. Junk drawers are fun!
