Junk drawers....

 Do you have one? more than one?

I have noticed that I keep getting more and more junk drawers! There is one in the kitchen, one in the nightstand, and one in the dresser! I'm pretty sure that I don't need the crap that is in there but I'm too tired to clean them out. Then I think- obviously I put it in there for a reason...It seems the older the kids get - the more crap I seem to accumulate...grr....

 So how do you ladies keeps the junk to a minimum?

Oh- and papers from the kids school? they keep sending home a 1,000 page a week home! Should I feel bad that I throw them in the garbage once I check to make sure that I don't have to sign anything? Do you do that?

We don't keep much around here.  We have one little itty bitty junk drawer in the kitchen and that's it.  And it's not really a junk drawer, we have pens/gum/little tools in there.  As far as the school papers....I try to pitch every once in a while, but save special ones for sure.  I do have lots of those.

I have 1 junk drawer in my kitchen and I just cleaned it out. It's very small, so I have to keep it clean in order to find my screwdriver and super glue...lol

As far as the papers from school.... they get recycled. Artwork will get hung in my kitchen (I have a wall between my backdoor and my basement door that is useless)..... once it's full, we pull it all down, and recycle it, then start over.

Wow! I have junk drawers all over the house! Every now and then I'll "clean" them out and find stuff that had been missing for months.Sometimes I'll find stuff I can't even figure out what it is or why I even got it in the first place.I'm a bit of a pack rat.

I don't have junk drawers.I have junk baskets.I have a basketin every room that misplaced things are suppose to go into.I try to clean them weekly but it never seems to happen.My 2 yr olds new thing is to go room to room and put everything in one basket.

As for kids papers.I put them on the fridge than when it gets full I take a picture to keep and we use their art work to wrap gifts for family and friends.
