Question Of The Day - Wednesday, June 24th!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Good Morning! Oh, it's gonna be an ugly one today! It's 75°F, with 94% humidity....and it's just 6 am!!! I just wish I could hibernate in my a/c today, and not have to venture out in that! I have to remember to take my inhaler. I think it will be hard to breathe, come this afternoon!

Here's today's Question Of The Day!

Do you have a 'junk drawer?' What kind of things are in it? What is the most unusual thing in your junk drawer?

I kind of have two.
One has kitchen towels, potholders, spatulas and other kitchen related gadgets in it. The other one is the true JUNK drawer. It has tools, measuring tapes, pads of paper, pens, pencils and markers, white out, the odd nail or screw, badge holders from conferences, electrical taps....the list is never ending! The oddest thing I found in my junk drawer (when I cleaned it out a couple of weeks ago) was my kidney stone in a little specimen jar! Why did I keep that????

I have one in my office desk that has 'officey' things - tape dispenser, stapler, CD's, jewel cases, envelopes, and all sorts papers and other things that I don't want to throw out.

I have another junk drawer in the kitchen. It has batteries, oven mitts I never use, all sorts of kitchen utensils I never use - many of which I don't even know their purpose (did I mention I don't cook? ), batteries, the knobs for my kitchen cabinets, tape, old vitamins, and hooks used for hanging things on the wall.

Probably the oddest thing in my junk drawers is my class ring. I never wear it and it seems like an out of the way and fairly inconspicuous place to keep it.

I have junk drawers in every room of my home! Most of them have no clear-cut designation. For example, I repair dolls; one of the doll supply drawers also contains silicone caulk and stray Christmas ornaments. I am seriously a mess.

Actually I have two, one in my kitchen, and one in my desk. And it is true as soon as you throw something out the next day your going to need it.

I have a few. There's the "third drawer" in the kitchen that has some rubber gloves, scissors, coupons, and a few other odds and ends in it.
My credenza here in the den is full of craft stuff... my MRI and CT scans are in there, too, along with the folder where I keep every single print off and receipt for the cats vet visits.
I have more craft stuff in the reptile room closet and set of storage drawers that need to be properly resorted as they hold all sorts of odds and ends. This is were the tape and glue drawer resides.

I have an entire 9 drawer junk buffet, with a junk work surface. I also have several junk baskets and a junk drawer in my nightstand. They get thinned out every time I move.
I have everything from spare guitar parts to Chinese chiming medicine balls in them.

Yes! We have four drawers in our kitchen island, and almost all 4 of them are full of useless things The other day I found a pair of my diamond earrings I had been looking for How they ended up there, I have no idea Everything ends up there though so I really shouldn't be surprised

In my kitchen: has assorted kitchen utensils, rags, tape, candles, etc.
In my living room: not a drawer, a cupboard on the wall unit: has candles, picture frames, and other odds and ends.
In the computer room: desk drawer...generally has computer related junk, but also a measuring tape, occassionally gifts, electonic types stuff...
Bathrooms: no drawer in 2 bathrooms, junk cupboards in there that really need cleaned out. 3rd bathroom has a junk drawer that my daughter throws her stuff in...bathroom oriented stuffs
Bedroom (s): not drawers, shelves or bins. My room, one shelf has books, clothes that are too small for my one daughter, or need to be fixed, hottub chemicals, just a bunch of assorted.
Spare room: desk in there with a drawer: kitty stuffs, papers, pens..

Garage: junk BINS.... labelled tho.... electrical junk, plumbing junk, etc. LOL.
Rec room: no junk....yet.... unless you count the half dozen paint cans n' stuff hidden in the cubby with the freezer. Give us time to add furniture to that room, and there will be a junk something.
